Re: Superheroine Fan Fiction Peril/Catfights
I've been a big fan of those writers for years. I haven't read many new writers who follow that path, sad to say. I also enjoyed RW and his "Missions of Supergirl" series, although that was more about trickery and gadgets taking her down rather than stronger foes.
RW had outstanding material. I just couldn't get into his epic storytelling style. I preferred stories that were self-contained. In fact, the only series I truly savored was GW's "Council of Righteousness" which consisted of 6 stories following different groupings of heroines and villains.
I remember Joinar's stories, some of the first Supergirl in peril ones I read. However I believe those were wrapping up by time I found them. Wish there had been some more. Safe to say I got into writing my own superheroine stories because of that. My favorite of his is probably one where two women work to destroy SG with a kryptonite necklace. There's a great scene where one of them with the kryptonite hidden tries to find SG in a disguise. A little too much of the sexual domination bit in that one for my taste but otherwise a great story.
That fun Joniar story was "Two Times Too Tough". My personal favorites were "Squared Circle" followed by "Dear Diary". One thing I enjoyed about Joniar's work was how he pitted mortal women against these super-powered goddesses. He had many clever "twists" to keep you guessing how a story would end. And when it comes to GW, there are few stories that equal "Wonder Woman's Interrogation".
