Is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a Superhero?

Would you consider Lisbeth Salander (a.k.a. the girl with the dragon tattoo) a superhero?

At New York Comic Con this year, a panel of veteran comic book writers and editors debated this topic; the panelists included Tom DeFalco (Marvel), Danny Fingeroth (Marvel), Paul Levitz (DC) , and Denny O’Neil (DC, Marvel). Psychologist Robin Rosenberg, editor of  The Psychology of Superheroes and The Psychology of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, acted as the moderator.

H&M to Release ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Clothing Line

Lisbeth Salander is one inspiring character. The fictional “girl with a dragon tattoo” in Stieg Larsson‘s The Millennium Trilogy has inspired a new fashion line at H&M.

The Swedish fashion company has hired Trish Summerville — the costume designer who created the wardrobe for Sander’s character in the Hollywood film adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo — to create a line inspired by the heroine.

Stylelist has more: “If you’re a big fan of the books or of Rooney Mara’s recent Dragon Tattoo transformation this new collection is definitely up your alley. Replete with black ripped tees, asymmetrical jackets and leather leggings, the capsule indulges in tough girl chic. Though this is H&M’s first dip into the movie market, they aren’t the first label to create pieces of clothing inspired by characters seen on the big screen or on television.”

Eva Gabrielsson Hopes to Finish Fourth Millennium Manuscript

Eva Gabrielsson, the life-partner of the late Stieg Larsson, has written a memoir, but she also hopes to finish an incomplete Millennium series manuscript.

While no plot details have been revealed, The New York Post reports that Gabrielsson is promising fans a Lisbeth Salander story where she “little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies.”

Gabrielsson explained that she wrote together with the late novelist, but she cannot finish the book without the “undisputed rights to his [Stieg's] work.” According to Knopf publicity director Paul Bogaards, Joakim and Erland Larsson still retain those rights and they have no intention of publishing this mysterious manuscript.
