Liberty

This is Jason Ford – the world’s first superhero tranvestite! S/he wears a (female) power-suit and has ‘Gaydar’, a danger sense. Liberty leads SPANDEX – in style!

  1. Interesting idea. But FYI, I think the world’s first superhero transvestite was Quality Comics’ Madam Fatal (guy who dressed as an unassuming old lady to thwart criminals).

  2. ha ha cool, an old lady? hehe.
    Hmm, maybe she is the UK’s first transvestite superhero then.* Or Brighton’s…

    * I’m not counting Lord Fanny from The Invisibles because she’s not really a superhero.

  3. Just wanted to say that the article in the Metro this morning provided us (students) with endless amusement considering I and Liberty share the same name!

    Epic Character and Fab Comic :D

  4. I am liking this character the most.

  5. Hey Martin,

    Cool stuff! Lovely, fun and tongue in cheek, if not exactly ‘first’. I wish we knew of Spandex before, you could have joined us for the (gay superhero) Comic jam in Berlin a little while ago. Keep up the work. xx

  7. While I applaud your effort to include a trans character, I don’t know if anybody’s told you this, but “transvestite” is considered a rather offensive term. Not knowing anything about Liberty’s identity, I couldn’t tell you what the right term would be, but “transvestite” is likely to turn away trans people such as myself, and leave cis people with wrong ideas. You may want to look at the following documents: http://bit.ly/6XtHM1 http://bit.ly/5CDUTN Thank you for reading this.

    • Thank you for the message, Rebecca, it’s most appreciated. Liberty is a very complex character and there’s a lot more to her than may first appear. I’m going to be exploring her in great detail over the coming issues. Would you like to discuss this via email – martrpeden@yahoo.co.uk. I’d really like to hear what you have to say.

  8. I am currently reading it on my Blackberry and will scan it once I get home. I love your site and marketing strategy.

  10. Actually, I think the first transsexual comic book heroine would have to be Coagula (aka Kate Godwin) of Doom Patrol. Her tenure with the team was short lived (just over a year, I believe), but she was a male-to-female transsexual with the power to coagulate liquids and dissolve solids. She got her powers from a radioactive hermaphrodite while working as a prostitute – as positively as she was portrayed, her origins were pretty ugly.
