For some, the road to murder is utterly senseless and devoid of meaning. For others, it is retribution. In this #sneak-peek of THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE (2021) #3, you will see that John Ridley and team waste not a swordslash of time in exploring the origins and philosophy of Tatsu Yamashiro, known today as Katana. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE mini-series continues to look at the mythology of the DC Universe as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
Read on to explore the tragic origins of Yamashiro:
Synopsis: 1983. Japan. Tatsu Yamashiro’s life has been taken from her. Her home, her children, her husband are all gone. With nothing left but a burning pain and the sword that stole her family from her, Tatsu begins a long journey of healing, self-discovery, agency, and rebirth. This is the story of Tatsu Yamashiro, the woman known to many as Katana-a hero who became more than the world ever intended for her, ultimately making a family of like-minded Outsiders who rally together for the common good amidst xenophobia and oppression.
