I am so, so tired of action heroines in movies and comics fighting in high heels, aarrrrgh. Listen, I have nothing against heels; put a character like Pepper Potts in heels and sure, that works for me. Lampshade the issue, like Greg Rucka does in Batwoman: Elegy, and I can handwave the problem. Have the woman take off her heels before going into battle (Natasha in Winter Soldier) - particularly if she's indestructible! (Wonder Woman in her animated film) - and I might even cheer. Better yet, put her in flats. Boots, even! I have no trouble believing a woman can fly, but expecting me to believe that any hero would choose to fight in stilettos is too much.
