Writer Jen Van Meter Talks Genderswap in Dr. Mirage New Series

The latest series in Valiant Entertainment’s universe, The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, features the first major shake-up in their reboot: the titular character is a woman instead of a man. Writer Jen Van Meter talks about the decision to change the main character into a woman as well as delving into her backstory and place in the wider Valiant universe. As someone who’s read the first issue with no idea of the change, the series has—so far—been evocative, magic fun.

Catie is a lawyer by day, comics fan by night (and during the lunch hour). Unsurprisingly, her idol is She-Hulk and can only wish that she could work a purple suit in the courtroom like Shulkie can. She's also into Stephanie Brown, because she has apparently an affinity for characters in purple.
