To celebrate her birthday, we’ve created a wish list of literary roles that we’d love to see Hana Mae Lee play. Listen up, Hollywood. We’ve got some big plans.

Both in the comics and on the sliver screen, it’s the marquee superhero teams who tend to get all the glory and attention: The Avengers, The Justice League, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, and a handful of other big-game franchises.
After all, it’s the celebrity heroes whom audiences want to see (well, and also The Guardians of the Galaxy). But this week, the Defenders—one of Marvel Comics’ oldest, least appreciated, and all-around weirdest superhero teams—finally gets its turn in the television spotlight. It took more than sixty episodes spread across four different shows to bring the Defenders from the comic page to its own 8-episode Netflix series, but the Defenders are finally getting their due.

It’s hot. Summer this year has been blazing, and it has undoubtedly left millions dreaming of cool water, air conditioning, and ice cream scoops the size of a human head.
Or the power to produce freezing temperatures with the wave of a hand, perhaps! Comics are rife with cool characters blessed with the power to beat the heat with a well-placed freeze ray or ice blast. Colorful characters like Mister Freeze, Killer Frost, Captain Cold and Iceman are common – and even familiar – sights in superhero media. But some other chilly villains and wintry warriors have a profile as low as the temperature outside is high.
