@akbogert: In a 16-contestant game, 8 of the characters are women. Do you know how many comics out there that aren't specifically marketed towards women have equal representation? True that a few new ones have shown up, but the general trend is still slanted WAY towards men, so this being roughly equal is still pretty awesome. Women currently fill the roles of 'bad guy with most screen time', ''brooding repentant tough good guy with social issues', 'leader of the ragtag bunch of misfits', 'the good guy who actually seem(ed) to have a small chance at taking down the bad guy while the men watched helplessly', as well as most of the point of view characters. The fact that Nico died a dramatic death heroically saving her teammates while incidentally also motivating her white male friend to avenge her doesn't diminish the fact that this book has very strong gender representation.
Plus, if we're talking stuffed into the fridge, Mettle.
