Uh, new characters who are old friends of characters we already know...? Not a new thing.

Mega-competent characters? Also not a new thing.

[is really sick of how freely people throw around "Mary Sue" when encountering female protagonists]

Just because an idea is tenacious, doesn't mean it isn't bad!

I'm sort of hoping they give her character some depth as well! So far, I basically have "cool tattoos" to define her as.

[shrug] These are supposed to be books about heroes. I really don't need to see a new character entering while deprecating herself and tripping all over her own feet, personally. (Especially considering how drenched in sexism the commonality of the "Mary Sue" accusation is, anyway.)

Hopefully she'll get some more nuance as the story progresses. I mean, it's only been two issues and it's an ensemble cast, right?
