Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld


The Mary Sue Interviews DC Comics’ Writer Christy Marx

The Mary Sue has interviewed writer Christy Marx before about her creation, Jem and the Holograms. But seeing as how she’s tackling some of our favorites at DC Comics these days, we felt like chatting again. Read on to hear what Marx had to say about the now-defunct Sword of Sorcery title, animation for girls, and what’s coming up in Birds of Prey

9 Female Characters We Wish We’d Been More Like In High School

Being a teenager can really suck. You’re at the cusp of having to make major life decisions about college and possibly moving away from home. There’s the stress of school and various personal and social milestones. Hormones are zinging around everywhere. And for eight hours a day, five days a week you’re crammed together with tons of other people going through the same thing.

Some people handle it more gracefully than others, though. Well, some fictional characters do, anyway. To that end, here are 9 Female Characters We Wish We’d Been More Like In High School. Sometimes it’s their attitude we admire, other times it’s their resilience or their morals or just the circumstances of their lives. Regardless, these are some pretty awesome teens.

Here’s a Playlist so You Can Watch All the Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld Shorts in One Go

While the last two videos in this aren’t of a great quality, since this playlist was put together by the creator of the series, I’m going to assume that they were the best available on YouTube. Here’s the entire story of Amethyst as played out over seven weeks during Cartoon Network’s DC Nation, start to finish. I feel like the world is ready for a video game programmer superhero.

Ready For More Amethyst On DC Nation? [VIDEO]

We were thrilled to see Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld finally make its debut last week on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation. If you missed the short you can watch it here. Right now we’ve got a clip from this week’s short, “Level 2: Village of the Frogs,” which has Amethyst fighting an awfully cute spider. I might add “awfully cute spider” is not in my vocabulary so take that how you will. Look for the full short this Saturday on Cartoon Network.

Just What You've Always Wanted

At Long Last: Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld Debuts on DC Nation

Unexpectedly thrown into hiatus for two and a half months, DC Nation returned this weekend with a new batch of shorts, including Brianne Drouhard’s Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld. I think my favorite moment is when she poses for a second at the end of her trasformation sequence, and clearly has no idea why.

And yes, for those of you who protested last time, Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld is a DC comic, and it predates She-Ra.

Check Out the Trailer for DC Nation’s Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld [VIDEO]

The future of Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld looked uncertain when DC Nation went on an unexplained hiatus last October. But now that all is right again in DC Nation (Kind of. Maybe. For now.), those who were looking forward to the series about a teenager who finds out she’s actually a long-lost princess from Gemworld (it happens) don’t have to wait much longer. Here’s a trailer for the series of shorts, which premieres this Saturday the 5th.

One quibble: Did she have to lose her glasses? Does being in Gemworld automatically give one 20/20 vision or something?
