A lot of good choices here as I think all of them are underated to a certain extend. I'll go with Raven because her backstory is actually more complicated than fan give it credit for and she's pretty much stuck with the Teen Titans even though she could be very, very useful and bring a unique dynamic to teams like the Justice League.

But honestly, you can't go wrong with any of these choices save for maybe Starfire who, while a nice character, not sure she has that high of a ceiling.

@youknowwhattodo: IMO Raven should have an ongoing title, she's an incredible character. I'd like to see Vixen and Dr Light (maybe she needs a new name) in the JL. They have incredible powers

Vixen but she's not on there so I'll add Big Barda

Power wise or popularity wise?

Power level, probably Zatanna.

Popularity, definitely Vixen.

@thepreface: I'd like to see Vixen against Poison Ivy. You know, animals vs plants: the ultimate nature fight :D

Probably Vixen

Is that version of Doctor Light still relevant in the DCU? I've only seen the one in Trinity War.

Rae Rae, naturally.

As much as I'd like to see her get her own ongoing, I actually think she'd benefit best from a duo series with another (she had great chemistry with Supergirl for example) but the obvious choices would be with Starfire (a friendship DC seems to have forgotten in comic form), Cyborg (an underrated relationship plus magic + science teaming up) or Beast Boy (as just friends though! They make a horrible couple).

Another I'd to see is her paired with is Zatanna, I find the idea of Raven attempting to be a sidekick for a Leaguer like some of the other Titans hilarious. Especially if Raven takes the proposition very seriously (being secretly something of a fan) while Zee just finds it cute. Having an adult big sister to help her lighten up would be a nice story for that would be different from her stories with those around her own age. I know the two didn't get off to a good start in NTT but that's ancient history.

All of them are, maybe except Starfire but I'd definitely love to see Zatanna and Vixen more spotlight.

I voted for Zatanna though I would like to make an honorary mention of Batwoman.

From the list, Doctor Light definitely hasn't seen as much of the spotlight as the others.

But I think these two deserve more attention as well.

@thepreface: I think Ravena and Dr Light are stronger than Zatanna

You know, if Zatanna had her magic abilities plus was born with flying brick powers (like Superman level physicals ) on top of that, she could have a lot of battle board overuse and potential :p. Also I feel like her story could've been expanded soooo much into more stuff then what we already know. Whatever.

Zatanna. I also liked manhunter and feel she gets forgotten pretty often.

Dr. Light. No one ever talks about her. She deserves better. Having said that, I like Zatanna most of the choices above, however she gets a lot of play.
