No Cape Needed: Senator Elizabeth Warren Becomes Immortalized As A Comic Book Superhero


Who needs a cape when you have the power of legislative knowledge and the capacity to make everyday Americans’ lives better by implementing strategic policies? That’s essentially the message we get from the latest Storm Entertainment comic book featuring Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Storm Entertainment have an awesome series titled ‘Female Force’ where they immortalize real women from a range of industries in comic books and position them as superheroes in a way that fictional characters with capes cannot compete with, in our opinion.

It’s all well and good to be mesmerized by the ability to fly, shoot laser beams out of your eyes and control magnetic force with your hands, but at a time in our history where women are rising up to their full potential like never before, we think it is SUPER important to see a stories of women who are literally changing the world in real and tangible ways.

In a bid to inspire young female fans, the Elizabeth Warren comic tells the story of her childhood and how she became involved in politics.


“From modest means to the Massachusetts Senate, Elizabeth Warren has proven herself a powerful advocate for the middle class. Her plainspoken approach and dogged attacks on Wall Street have resonated with voters looking for someone who understands the crush of debt and the shackles imposed by student loans,” says a description about the comic.

The guy behind this comic and all the other Female Force titles is Darren Davis, the CEO and publisher of Storm Entertainment who was inspired to create the company after reading a comic book about President Obama and Senator John McCain back in 2008 during the Presidential election.

CBS Boston reports that he decided to create his own comic books featuring famous politicians, and also chose two well known figures.

“We thought, let’s try to do a Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton comic book, and do it more with a biography and more of a female empowerment angle,” he said.


From that, the Female Force idea was born and today fans can purchase and read biographical (not fictional superhero) stories about women like Condoleeza Rice, Ellen DeGeneres, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Cher, Chelsea Handler and Gloria Steinem just to name a few.

“Female Force offers a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture. Other prominent and influential female authors, business executives, entertainers, journalists, politicians and activists are currently in development,” states the website.

There are over 60 Female Force titles available worldwide digitally, or in print via Comic Flea Market and Amazon.

Darren emphasized to CBS Boston that this series is presented in a well-researched fashion, and is less about politics, more about empowering female readers.

“At the end of the day, it’s about the female empowerment angle to it, rather than spewing out political information that they’re trying to push. We don’t put agendas onto it,” he said.


If you are looking for entertainment or literature to inspire young boys and girls about the heroic women who are making a difference in the world in a number of ways, the Female Force series is an excellent source. We are looking at electing possibly the country’s first female president, which in and of itself is a huge statement to the rest of the world (that we’re finally catching up with all the other nations who have already achieved this milestone…).

With so much attention on celebrities, social media stars, tabloid gossip and limiting views on what the success of a woman should look like (i.e, that our “worth” comes solely from our physical appearance), we applaud Darren Davis and his team of talented artists and writers for inspiring a generation of girls with stories of women who have blazed their own trails, broken barriers, dared to go against the grain and defy all odds.

Darren did mention that the purpose of the Female Force comics was not to portray them in some fictional superhero manner, so if you want further proof of what a badass Senator Elizabeth Warren really is in championing women’s rights, college students, and taking on corrupt economic policies, here are a few videos of her in action in the United States Senate:
