In January, 11-year-old Rowan lamented the lack of female superheroes in a complaint letter to DC Comics which later went viral. The comic book publisher subsequently responded on Twitter with a promise of "more superhero fun for girls" to come.

To show their commitment to creating more strong female characters, DC Comics also reached out to the 11-year-old and sent her a basket of gifts -- including a sketch of Rowan as a superhero herself:

As her Today Show appearance makes clear, Rowan was thrilled with the "amazing" drawing of her superhero likeness and the exciting new "girl power" developments to follow.

Keep soaring, Rowan!
