Madeleine Flores' Great Warrior: a new kind of hero


It has happened. In these times of mire and hardships, of adversity and struggle, a hero has emerged from that dodgy, smoky, plumy place you always thought was bit shady and never ventured near. A bow sitting at an appropriate dainty yet rakish angle on her head, heart-shaped shield ever ready, conqueror of horrors too terrible to name, devourer of pizza, this is... Great Warrior! Cometh the hour, cometh the, um, bean-shaped being: Great Warrior is here to slay your dragons (as long as it's at a reasonable hour in the afternoon), lift your curses, deliver choice kicks and track down the latest word in footwear. Finally, we have a hero truly of our times: one we can relate to, one who reflects our problems and understands our needs- and then puts hers before them. Great Warrior may not be the hero we deserve, but she's the one we need right now. Follow her reluctant derring do and escapades here.
