    Okay, so if I include both Wonder Woman and Isis, we have two "goddess" types. If I include both Zatanna and Manitou Dawn, I have two sorceresses. There already was overlap in my roster but it wasn't as blatant. But here's my amended roster anyway:

    1) Black Canary
    2) Batwoman
    3) Vixen
    4) Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz)
    5) Katana
    6) Manitou Dawn
    7) Isis

    Yeah, I took out Wonder Woman and put Black Canary in instead. Trading DC's biggest superheroine for DC's second biggest superheroine. It loses some star power but I think it feels a little more diverse in terms of heroine types.

    THE NEW AMAZONS

    Wonder Woman
    Black Canary
    Vixen
    Black Orchid
    Star Sapphire
    Mera
    Zatanna

    I also wanted to include Doctor Light, but then the team would be bigger than 7.
    Diana, Dinah and Vixen would be the "trinity" of this set-up.

    Wow, I love this lineup. Vixen, Manitou Dawn *and* Isis? For a group with no Wonder Woman or Zatanna, you've got some serious mystical mojo there! Jessica brings a more science-fiction element, and Batwoman, Black Canary and Katana are more street-level, the 'Batman / Green Arrow' types of the group, which is cool.

    Again, there are just so darn many League-ready ladies to choose from. I'd want to throw Hawkwoman, Big Barda, Mera, Nightshade, Fire and Ice in there, too! Heck, maybe go radical and include characters like Bulletwoman, Skyrocket, Element Woman, Manhunter, etc.

    Or even more fun, if you prefer swap her out with Conjura, her incredible DC Dictionary analog

    When was Zatanna revealed to be Romani?

    Same here. Zatanna has always been of Italian descent. On her father’s side. His first name is Giovanni and he and Zatanna are descendants of Leonardo Da Vinci.

    Cindy Reynolds is the one who always been Romani.

    If you're asking me again, like I said, yeah I'm not even sure where I first read it. LOL
    And I should have double checked before suggesting it, My bad, if it's not the case, may have come from a discussion of an elseworld, I can't remember? . If the lit doesn't support it, that's fine.
    Thanks for clearing it up.

    I'm familiar and fine with Zee being Italian (although you can be Italian Romani).

    As suggested Isis, and/or even more fun for me Conjura (as a multi-dimension swapped Zee analog) works great too!
    Might even swap out Zee for Conjura on my own list of 7

    Glad you like it.

    I had seen the elements of overlap you mentioned (three mystical, three street) and mulled them over a bit too. But I figured a spell caster, an animal mimic and a goddess were different enough without seeming too samey. Same with Batwoman and Katana. I see bat-family members more in terms of being detectives/strategists/creative problem solvers and Katana's focus more on her being a martial arts master. So, non-powered brains and non-powered braw . . . physical ability and technique (it doesn't feel quite right to call Katana "brawn"). And Black Canary's there as a marquee name and leadership.

    You know, we really should include somebody like Green Arrow, Firestorm, or Guy Garner as an homage to the token member from back in the day.

    Zatanna and her father being Romani was explicitly said in Dini's Detective Comics run and later in his Streets of Gotham run. It's possible that she is both Romani and Italian.

    Weird. I know it’s a retcon.
    But you would think Zatanna would say something to Gypsy (Cindy Reynolds) when they were teammates.
