Exclusive: Felicia Henderson on ‘The Punisher’ season 2 and inspiring the next generation

The fierce and talented Felicia Henderson is the brain behind so many things you know and love—from the Teen Titans comics to The Punisher series on Netflix where she currently serves as co-executive producer. She went from being a young girl obsessed with Batman comics to becoming a major force in the TV and comic industry. She’s had her hand in everything from Gossip Girl and Fringe to Everybody Hates Chris and Sister, Sister. We had the pleasure of chatting with Felicia at San Diego Comic Con for both our Fierce Female and Pure Inspiration series about her career, The Punisher season 2, and advice for people looking to make it in the entertainment world.
