When you talk about heroes of the cape-and-tights variety, it’s not just a boy’s club. Just look at the comic book powers of Wonder Woman or the X-Men’s Storm, or even live-action heroes like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Xena.

Guests:

HEAR MORE: Kristy Guevara-Flanagan speaks at 6:30 p.m. April 22 at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library.
