MISC. MANGA, *Don't Meddle With My Daughter

What if Power Girl from DC Comics had a daughter, went in to retirement, and then her daughter takes her mantle? That's the premise behind Don't Meddle With My Daughter. Created by Nozomi Tamaki, who also made Dance In The Vampire Bund, put this together largely based on American comic book superheroes, but in a more ecchi take than what One Punch Man did for shonen manga.

There was a powerful heroine called the Eighth Wonder, and she worked with the secret S.H.I.E.L.D.-like organization referred to as N.U.D.E. Secretly, Eighth Wonder was a young woman named Athena who allegedly comes from an island of goddesses, but along the way fell in love with a mysterious man, and had a daughter named Clara. With her husband now M.I.A., Athena retires from the hero biz to become a full time mother. Years later, Clara discovers she's gained the powers of the original Eighth Wonder, and not having a single clue that she gets it from her mother. So, Clara joins up with N.U.D.E. to fight the criminal gang called "Blowjob". Discovering that her daughter is the current Eighth Wonder, Athena gets into her old outfit which barely fits her anymore, and secretly helps out Clara from behind the scenes along with her old N.U.D.E. mates. However, the forces of Blowjob seem to have some connection to Athena's estranged husband who was a super-skilled sniper that assassinates heroes and villains alike.

This might seem like a step down from all the "female empowerment" that the current Wonder Woman movie that SJWs love to go on about, but it still maintains a good level of comedy and action for a superhero comic. If you found Adam Warren's Empowered non-offensive, then this manga.
