There's a group of 150 Ukranian women* who have retreated from society, choosing to live in the Carpathian Mountains and study martial arts, austerity, and the use of medieval weaponry.

You realize it's only a matter of time before they become vigilantes for great justice. They have distinct costumes and hairstyles. They have the training. They even have a cool name for their League of Fierce Awesome: Asgarda. I mean, look at that last picture, #10, the one with the axes and the swords. That woman could GUT you and wear your skin as a pelt.

THE DAY WILL COME. Seriously, though, does anyone know of a comic book series in which a sect of women finally Aren't Taking It Anymore and rise up in violent revolt against the patriarchy??? Not just aimless, doomed Thelmas and Louises, but an actual organized force like Asgarda.

*Ukraine leads Eastern Europe in human trafficking, particularly women forced into the sex trade.
