Meet "SheZow", A New Gender Changing Cartoon Superhero

A new cartoon superhero may be a first in LGBT history.

SheZow is a new cartoon debuting Saturday on the cable channel, the Hub.

The story is a 12-year-old boy, named Guy, has a magic ring that transforms him into a super powered girl. Buzz from the web and blogs are calling SheZow the first trans superhero cartoon character. It's been airing in Canada and nothing has gone down yet.

Also, I'm not sure if this is really a Trans character. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Check out a sneak peek

Without a back story or knowing this characters feelings while in Boy Mode I'm not sure either. I don't think I get that Hub channel so I may not be able to judge based on this alone.

uh - as nice as this is, This cartoon is hardly a first. Ranma 1/2's main character has been transforming from a guy to a girl and back and forth for Decades!

after watching the clip, I'm with Behrmark. The cartoon is more drag-ish than trans.
