Steven Universe was the first Cartoon Network show to be created by a woman. Not to mention, starring a mostly female cast, and a town full of minorities. Even though the show is named after its lead character, a male, Steven isn't your typical male superhero character. He's emotional, he's kindhearted, and he doesn't place a lot of importance on being masculine. Not to mention, being raised in a multi parent household. Sure, he wants to be a hero - but oddly, his weapon isn't a bow or an ax or even his fists. He always strives for peace over war. Be sure to read the awesome article about the show. If you've been trying to get someone into it, this article is pretty convincing, and a great read!
