Two New Trans/Non-Binary DC Characters In Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate?

Circuit Breaker and Xanthe are two new characters being introduced to the DC Universe in the Lazarus Planet anthology in February.

One of the side effects of the Lazarus Planet crossover is the creation of a bunch of new comic book characters for the DC Comics universe. And in Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate, that includes two new trans/non-binary characters.

Two New Trans/Non-Binary DC Characters In Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate?

One of the writer/artists of the upcoming  Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate anthology A.L. Kaplan tweeted "Meet Jules Jourdain (he/they, aka Circuit Breaker "Can a new hero channel the inexorable Still Force energy to fend off evil?" – Debuting in DC's Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate #1, out on Valentine's Day" and followed up described them as " Yeah! Trans man, but not super into the binary".

DC editor Andrea Shea tweeted CIRCUIT BREAKER is gonna be your new favorite character! @alkcomics [A.L. Kaplan] breathes life into Jules Jourdain's first adventure this February, in which our new hero is blessed (or cursed?) with the dreaded Still Force during LAZARUS PLANET: DARK FATE. Don't miss his debut 2/14!" and "okay I will be honest I'm kinda freaking out that Circuit Breaker already has fan art? JUST WAIT TIL Y'ALL SEE HIM IN ACTION! Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate #1 can be preordered from your local comic shop now and picked up on 2/14!" and "jules is the prettiest and most fabulous cowboy".

The Still Force was created by Scott Snyder for his Justice League run, like the Speed Force but instead based on entropy and inertia. And now another character wielding Still Force powers to join The Turtle.

Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate #1 is published by DC Comics on the 14th of February.
