“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg is co-writing a comic book about a grandmother superhero whose powers are activated by menopause.
The 67-year-old celebrity is co-writing the book for Dark Horse Comics along with Jaime Paglia, who worked on The CW series “The Flash” and Sci-Fi Channel’s “Eureka.”
“The Change” follows a woman named Isabel Frost who feels stuck in a rut and unhappy with the direction of her life. She has friends, a relationship, and a grandson who loves video games, but she also feels bored with the “stagnant” routine of everyday life. Then, she reaches the age of menopause, which spurs her superhero powers to activate.

Screen Rant offered a first look at the new project, which included images of the character wearing a long black leather coat and holding a blue and purple flame. The menopausal superhero Isabel Frost bears a striking resemblance to Goldberg.
“The Change” has a scheduled release date of November 28.
This isn’t Goldberg’s first foray into writing, but it will be her first time experimenting with the world of graphic novels. The “Sister Act” star has written multiple titles including children’s books such as “Sugar Plum Ballerinas” and “Whoopi’s Big Book of Manners.”
The “View” host has openly discussed her experience with menopause before, joking during a standup about the lack of treatments to help with hot flashes.
Goldberg has been sharing controversial opinions for years on “The View,” including her recent comments about how children having transgender surgeries is supported by the Bible.

“My God, this is a party that says we believe in parents’ rights,” Goldberg exclaimed during a recent episode, as The Daily Wire previously reported. “You’re telling me that as a parent, I don’t — I’m not smart enough to decide if my child and I need to have gender-affirming — or doctors are not involved.”
“So what is — I can’t decide what my kid reads, I can’t decide for my child, what my child says is going on,” Goldberg said. “You’re telling me your beliefs — you’re — and they keep saying it, and I keep saying, ‘What Bible are you reading? Because God was really clear!’”
