“I think as trans people, growing up, I didn’t get to see myself anywhere, so I didn’t really know that I existed. And especially not in a superhero show or movie,” she said in an interview with Collider.

“I just feel deeply grateful and moved that little trans kids and trans teens have something to look at and to know they exist and to know that they can have superpowers.”
