D.C announces “Female Black Bi-sexual character”

In an Interview yesterday with Dan Didio conducted on “The Advocate” D.C comics confirms that Wildstorm and Wildcats Black superhero (I’ve been confused about her ethnicity since inception) Voodoo will be showing up in a big way this year as an advocate for the LGBT community in the New 52/Rebooted Dc universe.

In addition to Batwoman, Apollo and Midnighter, you’re also introducing a female bisexual African American superhero in Voodoo. Was it a conscious decision to introduce characters from across the LGBT spectrum?

Yes. What we really wanted to do was show the diversity of our audience across the line of our books. Right now we have such a wide fan base and we wanted to create characters and stories that really reflected [that] fan base.

More as it breaks!

    Hmmm- “Voodoo”? Isn’t that a rather cliched name for an African American superheroine( rather like “Kaboomerang” for an Aboriginal)?

    voo doo as being a bi-sexual … i never knew. things change over the decades, marvel made north star gay. now, we see voo doo as being into guys and girls … what a world we live in. as a creative writer, i too have a character that is female and bi-sexual in nature, i can understand creating such in a new character … but to do so to an old one …

    I so wish that Didio and JIm Lee had left Voodoo and the other Wildstorm characters in their own universe as I have limited interest in what they are doing with them since they decided to bring them to DC.
