Starfire has to be one of my favorite female DC characters. Batwoman is another exception. What is your number one favorite DC Heroine? Any character!
Barbara Gordon and Helena Bertinelli.
Personally, I thought the whole plot with Vixen losing her animal powers and leeching off supers instead all because of Anansi was just plain crap. I haven’t read much McDuffie, but he is widely regarded. I can certainly see why in his storyline in The Demon, so his JLoA run must just be one of those off periods, because it was arguably the worst in that whole volume.
My favorite heroine is probably Jessica Cruz, although Mera is a close second. Mera wins for pure badassery, but Jess is a more inspirational and relatable character.

Just skip to Lead On Mcduffie. He speaks very candidly on DC and them impeding his Justice League book. He even reveals that Anansi was an allegory for his frustrations with the book. Constant event books kept ruining his plans for the series. Really all this is what led him be getting fired. Some things you just don't speak about I guess.
To be fair, Blackest Night and Brightest Day were amazing and I would take them over his run any day.
What I've read of Blackest Night it was really good to be honest. Johns is amazing.
Everything he touches turns to gold. I don't think he's ever written a bad story.
I want him to do a Wonder Woman book or a new Power Girl series. A 6 issue mini. I realize how good Johns was when I realize he wrote countdown to infinite and Infinite Crisis. No one has been able to top his work. He let me down with Darkseid War, but that was still a fun ride. He is your go-to for team books.
Supergirl aka my favorite character in general
"Power Girl. She doesn't take your shit and is a match for Superman and Supergirl."
Jay Garrick: I swear, P. G. — only you would have the gall to tell The Fastest Man On Earth-Two To "Hurry Up".
Power Girl: It's not "gall", Flash — It's determination!
I don't remember the issue, but it is a Pre-Crisis story.
I like Power Girl, but I didn't mention her specifically because she falls into the "Kara Zor-El" category to me.
"Really? With the way Ed Benes draws her?"
You're arguing about their stereotypically big boobs and muscles when I'm disturbed about their worryingly short skirts.
For God's sake, man, two of them are underage!
Now, to be fair, he isn't always so bad (see Many Happy Returns or Final Days of Superman for times where Supergirl didn't wore a mini mini-skirt), and comic-book heroes and heroines tend to exhibit idealized bodies most of time, but some artists cross the line...
"Everything he touches turns to gold. I don't think he's ever written a bad story."
Some people can't stand him and blame him for everything's wrong with the DC universe -regardless if he had a hand in whatever they are complaining or not!- but I have enjoyed most of his stories.
