Now that "Jonah Hex" is behind her and the "Fathom" adaptation lies on the road ahead of her, actress Megan Fox has revealed that there's another comic book movie role she would like to put her stamp on — Rainmaker from "Gen 13."
The former "Transformers" actress revealed her intentions while on the red carpet for the world premiere of "Jonah Hex," telling Fox 411: "I don't want people to protest this, but I would like to be [Sarah] Rainmaker in 'Gen 13' if they ever made that into a movie."
"Gen 13," the Wildstorm series created in 1994 by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, tells the tale of a superhero team consisting of youthful heroes such as Caitlin Fairchild, Grunge, Threshold and the aforementioned Rainmaker. Rainmaker is an Apache-born hero with the ability to manipulate the weather. The character's sexual orientation has been the subject of some debate, with early stories pegging Rainmaker as a lesbian while later issues revealed her as bisexual.
"She's a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me," said Fox. "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."
Earlier this month, Fox clarified her "nerd credibility" in an interview with MTV News, saying she's not as much of a comic book expert as some have been led to believe. However, she described herself as a lifelong fan of certain mainstream comics including "Gen 13."
