Jamie Chung as Karma (Xi’an Coy Manh)

Jamie Chung is Korean and not Vietnamese which is kind of a strike against her but she’s just so dang cute that I’m willing to overlook it. She’s also played in Big Hero 6 as Go Go so she’s done the superhero thing before as a voice and she was in Suckerpunch so she probably knows action sequences as well.  The original comics sort of played Karma as a fish out of water, adopting to American culture without fitting in, but in this internet inter-connected world that story feels played out. A more modern version of the character is necessary and Jamie has the bubbly personality to bring Xi’an into the 21st century.
