New Batwoman

Not that I care much about comic books in general, but the article on CNN about the new Batwoman character caught my eye.

"The 5-foot-10 superhero comes with flowing red hair, knee-high red boots with spiked heels, and a form-fitting black outfit."

Here's the gotcha: "DiDio said. "We're trying for overall diversity in the DC universe. We have strong African-American, Hispanic and Asian characters. We're trying to get a better cross-section of our readership and the world."

Ummm... NEWSFLASH! Hate to break it to you, but the red hair gene is present in only about 4% of earth's entire population, so picking a redhead to round out the diversity of comic books is a strange choice.

On a side note, today's one-star WashPost Mega Sudoku took me 10:49...slightly longer than the 3-star from the other day.
