From "A" like Aquagirl to "Z" like Zatana. More than 200 female superheroes have been around for the last 70 years. It all started with Fletcher Hanks's minor character Fantomah in the 1940s Fiction House's Jungle Comics #2 and from that moment on the seal was broken. Female superhero after superhero made their appearances on paper as well as on screen. These female superheroes were simultaneously shaping and mirroring society; with the rise of second wave feminism some of these female characters changed as well. Suddenly, they could be more self-assured and more forceful; Marvel Girl transformed from an average superhero to the very powerful Phoenix. Later on, the years 2010/2011 witnessed a huge transformation in the graphic novels realms.

2014 Chicago MLA special session

Following Yunte Huang's lead in *Transpacific Imaginations* and *Transpacific Displacements*, we might expand the definition of transpacific to encompass modern Western expatriate memoirs such as Mark Salzman's *Iron and Silk*; Simon Manchester's *The River at the Centre of the World*; Nathan Gray's *First Pass Under Heaven*; Mark Kitto's *Chasing China*; Rachel DeWoskin's *Foreign Babes in Beijing*; Angela Carter in Japan; Bruce S.
