Can I get a source on this one? Anyone seen it before?
Awesome! Source found. Thanks Daniel!

She looks so much like me, and that is cute.

I was always diappointed they gave John a son — because the male hero always has a son in these stories — instead of Aeryn a daughter.
D’Argo is a fine name regardless of who it was given to, and it in no way diminishes the original bearer of it to honour them by giving a daughter that name.

I found it mildly amusing back in August when Creative Assembly launched the Daughters of Mars downloadable content for Rome II. The original Rome: Total War featured a few Scythian horsewomen units, screaming Germanic women, and a couple of Amazon units, none of which I messed with extensively and all of which looked kind of stupid. While the Scythian riders and German screamers are back in the vanilla Rome II, the DoM DLC adds in a number of hard-hitting women warriors available as mercenaries and auxiliaries depending on faction and location.
On the whole, I’m fairly impressed with the various details and the amount of thought and research CA put into their Daughters of Mars (or Athena or Sekhmet or Andraste or whichever deity they follow). Most of all, I deeply appreciate that they didn’t see the need to pander to the pocket-miners by making our lady warriors gratuitously sexualized. Far too few game developers show that kind of integrity.

Supergirl, Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler’s drama based on the DC female superhero, has landed at CBS with a series commitment. The deal closed last night, a day after the project was taken out to the broadcast networks on Wednesday. I hear the size of commitment eclipses the series commitment DC Batman drama Gotham got at Fox last fall. Warner Bros. TV is producing with studio-based Berlanti Prods.
