    I need some help remembering a character's name. She is afro-latino, had a familial connection to Amanda Waller and was in one of DC's government agencies. I only remember seeing her on the DC wiki but I can't remember her name.

    Thank you.

    Now I'm wondering if this is really a retcon or another example of editors and writers not paying attention to what's established even if it was newly done or could this be that loose continuity BC is saying DC is gonna do.
    My priority is black female characters; everything else is secondary.

    Marvel: Miles Morales, Riri Williams, Ororo Munroe, Thor, Quentin Quire.
    DC Comics: Vixen, Batman, Bat Family, John Stewart, Roy Harper, Tempest, Poison Ivy, Raven.
    Comics: Y: The Last Man, Justice League America (2009), Ultimate Comics: All New Spider-Man (2011)
    Ships: Thororo/ThunderStorm, Vixen/hasn't been created, Jason Todd/Kathy Duquesne.

    One retcon at a time I guess. Just really happy the girls are back. Hated how Isabella made them his nieces.

    Jeff should totally have his own city. I definitely prefer Freeland over the others.

    I think it's a retcon because since Cold Dead Hands they've steered pretty clear of ever mentioning the daughters (they don't come up once in Outsiders), so I think they were stealthily running under the idea that he was just a relatively young single dude. I mean I don't think they would casually overlook the daughters for that long.
