    I was looking on the dc wiki site and I'm not sure if this was just misinformation or what is actually happening to buddy but it states that his daughter was the rightful avatar of the red and buddy will only have his powers until his daughter is able to take that role? Is that true? Seems awfull lame considering the history of this character.

    I think it's a neat idea, but I doubt Buddy will lose his place as avatar of the red.

    If it is true then it won't happen. It's like saying Damien is going to be the next batman when he is of age. It's "destined" to happen but since time stands still for the most part in comics, the red will never pass on from Buddy to his daughter unless its a temporary story line.

    There was an interview somewhere with Lemire saying that the title will change at one point to "Animal Girl".

    Issue 7 introduced her in a future premonition. I thought it was pretty cool actually.

    i thought this was decided before they came up with the new 52? I dont like or dislike the ieade im just curious why they would change it to animal girl when there is already Vixen who basically has the same powers doesnt she?

    I think it is just rumor at this point. I would actually like to see them release a new title for Animal Girl/Animal Woman focusing on Maxine in an alternate future or alternate reality. That would be cool.

    That may be the idea, but at the rate the characters age, we will likely never see it.

    Nothing against Max but Buddy's in my top three comic characters. I was a little p.o.'d when the totems said he was only a minor force for the red.
