Last year, DC Comics' Jeff Lemire announced he was developing a new superhero character for the Justice League United (formerly known as Justice League Canada) title —a Cree teenage girl inspired by Shannen Koostachin, the late Attawapiskat activist in Canada who was nominated for an International Children's Peace Prize.

And now, thanks to the DC Women Kicking Ass Tumblr we finally get to see what the character looks like. While Lemire had organized a contest in which students suggested powers for the Cree superheroine, her name and role has yet to be revealed.
