The Justice League panel at SDCC just concluded and it has some interesting news.
Power Girl may not be around but Karen Starr will be appearing in Mr. Terrific.
And when pressed on the inclusion of Asians in the New 52 Jim Lee said:
"there’s a character in Justice League—a very small character—rhymes with ‘Batom.’"
Could Ryan Choi be back?
And then there was this via CBR:
A female reader followed up on this by asking “where are the women,” noting that few are visible in the covers shown. Johns said that “DC has more iconic women than anybody else.” The fan cited heroines with “girl” in their name, where the male characters tend to have “man.” She added that the covers did not show female heroes front and center on the covers.
Berganza said that “diversity does include gender diversity,” but the fan persisted by asking how many of the 52 feature a woman “in the center of the cover.” Lee joked that that would depend what she meant by center. “If she’s right in the center, that’s bad composition.”
The panel then said that diversity and strong woman will be a focus of DC Comics.
Oh and when the panel was asked about Cass Cain? Silence.
