Zatanna’s mother, Sindella, was just as if not more powerful than Zatara as she was a full blooded Homo Magi witch.
Buddy Baker once hosted a children’s TV show in the DCU so that he could spread animal awareness. He is consistently getting work on the side as a stunt man in TV & movies and was famous before he was a superhero.
Buddy Baker also canonically suffers from depression and anti-depressant dependency. He often has breakdowns when his wife and kids are separated from him.
Big Barda was based on Jack Kirby’s wife, and the marriage between her and Mister Miracle happened within a year of her appearance.
Scott Free’s successor as Mister Miracle has always meant to go to Shilo Norman, a young African-American boy who Barda and he took in when they first moved permanently to Earth and who was a major character in the original series.
Roy Harper was Lian’s father for a lot longer than any time he was suffering from addiction more prominently. To say addiction is more important to his character than being a father is ridiculous nonsense.
Cassandra moving to Hong Kong still makes no sense, Mr. Morrison, because she was never raised in that culture, with that language, or is even fully Chinese.
And this is less canon so much as it’s fact, but the reasons for disposing of Sin are still bullshit.
Rose Wilson is half Cambodian, even if numerous artists ignored this and drew her as “the whitest white girl to ever white.”
Killing off Eddie Bloomberg before Rose had a chance to admit her feelings to him was bullshit.
Not showing Rose’s reaction to Eddie’s death is also utter bullshit.
Connor Hawke is 1/4 Black, 1/4 Korean and half white and is dark-skinned
Dick Grayson is of mixed Romani descent thank you very much
Damian is 1/4 Arabic and 1/4 Chinese
Because the Kanes are a Jewish family, Bruce Wayne’s mother is Jewish, making Batman ethnically Jewish
Jason Todd was not a bad Robin, and most of the times in canon he got angry as Robin was over violence against women
Kyle Rayner’s father is Mexican
Cassandra Cain was respected and beloved by the entire rest of the Batfamily. She was especially close to Babs, who was basically her adoptive mother, and was one of the few people who supported Steph as Spoiler most when she needed it.
Dolphin (Cerdian’s mother) was originally mute and communicated with sign language.
AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY; Africa is bigger than all the other continents; and there should have been loads more operatives in “Batman Incorporated” if Bruce really wanted to make a difference.
Superboy HAD A FAMILY long before Superman deigned to notice him and brought him to Smallville — it consisted of his father figure Dubbilex (a D.N.Alien), sister-like Roxy Leech and her father Rex Leech, and Superboy’s girlfriend Tana Moon. (Inspector Sam Makoa and the Guardian, Jim Harper, were somewhat more distant mentors / uncle figures.) Yes, it was non-traditional but it was HIS.
Cynthia Reynolds prior to the reboot was Romani, but please do everything in your power not to refer to her by G***y. “Charmer” is a fine alternative that I have seen some people suggesting as a codename, when they don’t just call her “Cindy”. (G***y in the DCnU is now an alien with no claim to the heritage, which makes it all the worse.)
⎾Sister , Daughter, Soldier ⏌ «She is the sister to all the boys and girls in the Wayne family and the daughter of a great man. She is the source of motivation, admiration, and hope for the Robins. She is the best friend and fellow confidant to one Spoiler. She is the heir to the Batgirl mantle and later, she is the face of BlackBat. She is loved, unforgotten, and forever—» ⎡The One Who Is All ⎦
