    Default Indigenous Characters In The DCU

    Figured we'd have a thread about indigenous characters in the DCU seeing as how there doesn't appear to be one. DC doesn't have much in the way of good Native American characters from what I've seen but I figured one featuring the ones we like would still be good.

    I'm going for Man-of-Bats and Raven, just because well, DC has terrible, terrible Indians.

    Does anyone know why Grayson wasn't "allowed" to confirm Arsenal's mother was Dine, back when they were doubling down on his Navajo raising and tribal affiliation?

    Seriously? That sounds like an early sign that Devin Grayson was more interested in legitimizing her fanfiction than writing good comics.

    Then again, it may just be simply that fair-skinned, red-haired Roy Harper may not be that believable as a half-Native child? I could be talking out of my ass here, though.

    His father, the only parent we've ever seen, is a light-skinned redhead.

    Children inherit genes from both parents and can look more like either (or like neither, for that matter).

    Nor, would that specify that his mother was full-blood (which, due to how enrollment works, might not even mean she was "full blood," if we want to get straight up Nazi blood quanta about it) or not, how light or dark she was. Especially since, afaik, we've never seen her.

    For the record, though, she didn't invent Roy being raised by Dine, I'm not even sure she's the one who first wrote him as enrolled. That's been Roy's childhood since there's been a Roy Harper.

    I went with Manitou Dawn. She was a fascinating character with a world of potential, and I really hope that someone will eventually bring her back and do something great with her.

    Dawnstar and Equinox are also awesome, though.
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    I liked Dawnstar in the JLA: Lost In Time movie and thought her light powers were cool. Surprised they haven't been brought into the comics. Also, what were Equinox's powers?

    They weren't really well-defined. Something to do with her powers changing with the seasons. We mostly just saw her shooting blue energy blasts. I think we saw some freezing effects out of her, since the story took place in winter.

    But yeah, flight and blue energy blasts were the major things we saw out of her. Hopefully another writer will pick her up and run with her.

    Okay, thanks.

    I think my choice is between Longshadow/Apache Chief and Dawnstar. Although to be honest some of the Latino characters can be considered racially Native American.

    Ill update later with pictures like the other threads
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    My wife is half Native and you'd never know it looking at her. Our kids are quarter Native and dont look it either.

    I liked the fact that Grayson dipped into a part of Roy's past no one had really done anything with. It was all there from the start, just ignored. Nice to see her flesh it out. Actually, Roy was about the only character I think she wrote really well.....
