The character, created by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, first appeared in Stormwatch #8 in 1994. Raised on a Native American reservation in Arizona, Rainmaker has the power to control the weather and later joined the Gen¹³ team as it became Image’s flagship title.
Rainmaker is also famous for having come out as a lesbian character (although later iterations of the series depicted the character as bisexual).
Although a Gen¹³ movie is not known actively in development, Fox is already countering potential criticism of her playing the part.
"She’s a Native American," Fox told Fox, "and I have a little bit of that blood in me," she said. "It would be a bit of a stretch – but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that."
Gen¹³ previously came very close to seeing an adaptation in the form of a videogame. Check out the test footage below, courtesy of the Playstation Museum.
