It seems that DC and Marvel are making moves to a future that includes more inclusion:

Marvel’s Shuri from Black Panther is getting her own comic book series!

Shuri who is the sister of the current King of Wakanda: T’Challa, is a nerdy tech genius who is also of African descent from the mythical country of Wakanda. As a black nerd, she represents a lot of blerds (black nerds) who don’t usually feature in mainstream media.

The new series which we are all eagerly awaiting will be written by Nigerian-American comic-writer Nnedi Okorafor. Official synopsis according to Marvel’s press release: Shuri will be thrown into a more demanding role when King T’Challa is lost in space!

Here is to hoping that this new comic leads the way to more changes in both the comic book word and literature in general.

Wakanda Forever!

Over at DC, they are flying the LGBT flag high with the inclusion of Catherine Kane aka Batwoman a proud and out Lesbian.

To clarify Batwoman will be getting her own show on CW!

This is a crucial and key change in the direction that we’d like to see all platforms taking; having an openly lesbian superhero as the lead in her own show. Fingers crossed when this does well it will open the floodgates to other changes which will lead to more inclusion.

With the addition of Batwoman this expands the DCU on the small screen, where we already have Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, did someone say crossover?

“So let me get this straight you didn’t go home with or even get his number?” Sedra asked leaning forward from her position on the floor.

The girls had gathered at Sedra’s house to help sort out her ever expanding wardrobe, but it had as usual turned into a gossip session. They were all sat in various parts of Sedra’s beautifully decorated bedroom.

Angie smiled, feeling confident at how well she had hit it off with Donato. Her happiness and new found confidence was less to do with him and more to do with how she saw herself.

“Yeah, I left the bar alone, since Jamie went home with someone,” Angie said.

“I get it,” Savy said with a smile, “you finally learnt how to flirt without being tipsy or drunk first.”

Angie laughed, “basically yeah.”

“Basically?” Jamie said with a laugh, “you lot should have seen her, when I came back from the bathroom she was talking to two different guys at once. I’ve never been prouder of you Angie,” Jamie raised her cup filled with her favourite smoothie in the air and the other girls followed.

“To Angie, better late than never!” Sedra said.

Angie laughed along with them, then turned to Sedra.

“So where are you taking me?”

They all laughed.
