From DC Blog:
“There isn’t much we want to say yet about Ya’wara. She is a member of the Tapirape, an indigenous tribe of Brazil living in deep in the Amazon rainforest, she has a jaguar, she has a unique power and she has a connection with Aquaman that isn’t going to make Mera very happy.
“There’s much more to learn about the Others in our upcoming Aquaman arc – what binds them together and what forces them to undertake one final mission – and what revelations we’ll reveal about Aquaman through these reluctant heroes.
“Plus, we haven’t even talked villains yet…keep your eyes peeled for more.”
Skitch Commentary: I imagine the arguement “she’s from the jungle” is not going to tame the backlash on this one. I can’t help but think that certain parties in DC either don’t care about controversy or they are actively pursuing it.
Either way, I love how strange this team is starting to shape up. I really have no idea how these characters could possibly all end up on the same team, especially with Aquaman. Looking forward to seeing those answers starting this month!
