    She worked on an issue of Zatanna's most recent solo series as well.

    But that's a minor quibble. It sounds like it'll be a good book, especially the focus on women creators.
    I think Lois would have made sense for her impact as a female character, but I think they wanted to focus on female Superheroes rather then civilians.

    To be honest, the derivative status of some of the heroines didn't even register to me with this which I guess is a testament to how strong and recognizable these characters are in their own right :0.

    Would her appearance as Superwoman in Action Comics #156 have counted?

    I'm more bothered the cover has three bat characters on it but otherwise it's fine.
    It is interesting they chose Batwoman instead of Batgirl. Batgirl is so well known that people seeing the promos of the Batwoman TV series think she is Batgirl. Some even being upset they made Batgirl a lesbian.

    Supergirl has been around for 60 years. That's longer than characters like Spider-Man and Iron Man. I would think by this time she was be considered a character in her own right rather than just a female knock-off of a male character.
    I do agree Lois Lane deserved recognition. But are Raven and Starfire so well known that the average person seeing them would even know who they are. Even Vixen isn't that well known. So obviously they were going for star power,
    characters more people would be interested in to pull readers in. A marketing thing.
