The series presents Women‭* ‬of Colour Superheroines‭* ‬as a‭ ‬counter-positioning to the predominantly white and male dominated comic landscape‭. ‬It serves both‭, ‬as a representation of Women‭*‬‭ ‬of Colour as well as a criticism of mainstream comics‭. ‬The decision on outfit‭, ‬name, and superpower is consciously left up to each person‭. ‬Women‭* ‬play an active role in this series and are not victims who as so often must be saved‭. ‬

The images as a form of fiction become part of reality when set in a real space‭. ‬Thus the visualisation contributs ‬to the transformation of dominant social narratives‭.‬

Mary Maggic – the superpower of the non-binary mum consists in hacking oestrogen to make hormones available for everybody.

Innocent Bastard – the superpower consists in making people see the truth. If necessary also the uncomfortable way.

c.mentis – the superpower consists in changing the reality through her own and foreign thoughts and imaginations.

Noro – the superpower of the half Siren/half Alien consists in pulling people with her scream into feminism.
