Throwback’s pose and costume are excellent.

Would Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer count as a sidekick? Or Wonder Woman’s Steve Trevor?

Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable! *heart* Now I have the Kim Possible theme song stuck in my head.

You are correct, though. Female superhero with a male sidekick is an extremely rare combination. Personally, the idea opens itself to more analysis and interaction. Same-sex partners tend to focus on “kick the villain’s butt and move on to the next one.” Modern comics do explore heroes’ psyches and egos. However, a woman as the lead is a largely unexplored and untold dynamic.

I think Daybreak is dang near perfect. I love how he’s breaking the title in his hand. Great symbolism.
