"Ghostbusters" starring Mindy Kaling, America Ferrera, Aubrey Plaza, and Rebel Wilson
If this happens, it needs to be based on this;
Okay, one guy has to be replaced but other than that, we got a base to work with.

So, there’s this girl. She’s tragically orphaned and richer than anyone on the planet. Every guy she meets falls in love with her, but in between torrid romances she rejects them all because she dedicated to what is Pure and Good. She has genius level intellect, Olympic-athelete level athletic ability and incredible good looks. She is consumed by terrible angst, but this only makes guys want her more. She has no superhuman abilities, yet she is more competent than her superhuman friends and defeats superhumans with ease. She has unshakably loyal friends and allies, despite the fact she treats them pretty badly. They fear and respect her, and defer to her orders. Everyone is obsessed with her, even her enemies are attracted to her. She can plan ahead for anything and she’s generally right with any conclusion she makes. People who defy her are inevitably wrong.
God, what a Mary Sue.
I just described Batman.

WILL AUTO-REBLOG FOREVER.
UGHHHHHHHHHH how many times will I have to explain how stupid this post is?
Going by this logic Superman and Wonder Woman are also Mary Sues
CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS DO NOT MAKE ONE A MARY SUE. IT’S HOW THEY ARE WRITTEN.
Batman is not inherently a Mary Sue just because of who the character is. Anyone who thinks that doesn’t really have any idea of what a Mary Sue is. If you think that Batman is always a Gary Stu then you’re an idiot. He has been written as a Gary Stu, like in JLA: Act of God. But what about Batman in TAS? He’s far from a Mary Sue, so shut the hell up.
Batman: TAS is one of the few things that got him right. And even that couldn’t keep it up. Fourth season, Justice League cartoon, ect. Don’t get me started on the comcis. I don’t thinkt his post said he’s inherently a gary stu and TAS understand this, but no one else does!
And you know what? You’re right. By this logic nearly every major super hero is a gary/mary sue. Especially anyone from the golden age. But Batmann is the only one that gets away with it. Why is this?
