  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Danger Girl Poster Color by J Scott Campbell.jpg

They're dangerous, they're girls...what more do you need?


Infamous Fan Service comic artist J. Scott Campbell's first solo foray into the comic world, Danger Girl is notorious for many reasons, two of which are the ridiculous amount of cheesecake in the book, and the lengthy timeframe between issues, sometimes exceeding a year. The series is a satirical, yet sometimes dark, take on the espionage genre, and centered on Abigail Chase, a former treasure seeker who gets sucked into the Danger Girl team by happenstance when their paths cross during her encounters with a hostile nemesis. Abbey, as she was mostly known, pretty much played the straight woman to the rest of the quirky team.

The Danger Girls consist of Sydney Savage, reckless thrill-seeker extraordinaire from the Land Down Under, who has a thing for whips and catsuits; Natalia Kassle, the Russian assassin/resident ice queen, who eventually was revealed to be The Mole for the Nazi-esque Hammer Empire; Silicon Valerie, the teenage techno-geek who has expertise in all things computer-related (and the most recent addition after Kassle's defect); J.C., a Canadian mechanic with an affinity for tinkering and creating mostly bizarre yet useful inventions for the team.

Their leader is Deuce, a former agent for Her Majesty's Secret Service who was recruited by the United Nations to lead the first all female spy team. More or less he's a caricature of Sean Connery, right down to the facial expressions and mannerisms.

The series debuted in March, 1998 and is still ongoing. The series spawned a Play Station game and a TV Pilot Movie, though the former was the only one that actually made it past the concept stage. It has, however recently been optioned for the big screen, to be directed by Todd Lincoln and produced by the same people that worked on the Hitman film.
