Recorded live during the Asian American ComiCon Summit on Art, Action, and the Future.

In the wake of Wonder Woman​, with Mulan on the horizon, what should we expect in a rich, textured, powerful and provocative Asian (or Asian American!) heroine? What’s worked, what hasn’t and why has it taken so damned long?

Moderated by The Hollywood Reporter’s Rebecca Sun, panelists include Paula Yoo (Writer/Producer, Supergirl); Sarah Kuhn (author of Heroine Complex); Samantha Jo (actor/stunts/Amazon, DC’s Wonder Woman); Claire Lanay (actress, podcaster, Afronerd Radio); and Sumalee Montano (Katana from Beware the Batman)!

All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.

As always, our official theme music is brought to you by the super team of Adam WarRock and Chops
