    Not a fan of that new redesign for Phantom Lady.

    Does she have powers or gadgets?

    She seems to have something on her arm (but unfortunately, the image I posted for the upcoming Freedom Fighters issue #2 seems to be temporarily unavailable . . .)

    Oh, ok, thanks.

    I don't mind a mix, a black Ray light gadget and the power of intangibility.

    So my ideas of how to handle the Phantom Lady legacy:

    - Sandra Knight can be the original Phantom Lady for the main Earth.

    - Delilah will be her successor from France. She can serve on Checkmate.

    - Stormy can be from another universe and be part of a multiverse protection organization.



    I'm still not sure of which one, if any, should have super powers.

    Why France?

    She's an American citizen (her father was the U.S. Attorney General) who happened to go to Sandra Knight's "Université Notre Dame des Ombres" ("Our Lady of the Shadows University"), but I'm not aware of any other ties to France for Dee.

    I know that. I suggested France because I figured it would be nice to have more non-American characters.

    So, in other words, ditch Dee but use her name to create a new French Phantom Lady?

    Such a classic heroine. I wish she could get some respect. If I could, I'd retcon her into the Classic 60's JLofA somewhere around issue 15 or so.

    Also, always wished she had intangibility and invisibility powers.

    Well, the original Phantom Lady (Sandra Knight) gained intangibility for awhile back in the Freedom Fighters' 1970s series.

    No I was suggesting using Dee but with some changes. Like every DC character has been subjected to.

    Hell, this is an appreciation thread for a character that's literally been four different people. Me making Dee French as opposed to American isn't that crazy.

    When you say "this is an appreciation thread for a character that's literally been four different people", you almost make it sound like they were all suppose to have been the same Phantom Lady, which they weren't.

    And it's not exactly a small tweak to change the background/nationality of a character. If you change that much of the character, what exactly are you retaining?
