and a member of the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" is mentioned at the end of the book.

Maybe she (Mina) will be a part of both groups.

Come to think of it, how did LoEG get that name when Mina is one of the main members.

League of Extraordinary Lady and Gentlemen.

John (Taloni) Taloni (johntaloni) | 4075 comments ^I always thought that was part of the point, at least in the comics. (I saw the movie and have blissfully little memory of it.) The only person who could hold together this league of unruly, misfit men was a woman. She was, although unpowered, stronger than any of them. The Batman of that particular Justice League.

(Bleah, now I'm remembering Huck Finn getting a shooting lesson from Quatermain. And that godawful "Africa will not let you die" bit. Bleah! Bleah!)
