“The Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen takes the spotlight on the cover of the latest issue of the Hero Complex print magazine, available now.

The lead story in the issue takes a look at the new wave of empowered young women in genre films — not just “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, who returns to the arena in November’s anticipated sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” but also “Divergent’s” Shailene Woodley and “Ender’s Game” actress Hailee Steinfeld.

Hero Complex magazine The issue also features new interviews with “Carrie” star Chloe Grace Moretz, discussing her take on the Stephen King-inspired horror classic, helmed by indie film icon Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”) and Evangeline Lilly describing her role in Peter Jackson’s second installment in his planned J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” due in December.

We also caught up with fan favorite actors Matt Smith and Tom Hiddleston — Smith shares his feelings about leaving “Doctor Who” behind as the character is set to regenerate once more, and Hiddleston describes what mischief he’s up to reprising his role as Loki in Marvel’s November release, “Thor: The Dark World.”

“He’s bored and full of self-righteous anger,” Hiddleston says. “He’s a locked up psychopath keeping himself sharp and absolutely terrifying.”

If you’re in Los Angeles, pick up the fall-winter issue of the magazine at Meltdown Comics or at both Earth-2 Comics locations, in Sherman Oaks and Northridge. In New York, the magazine is available at all three Midtown Comics locations and this weekend at New York Comic-Con.

And, of course, no matter where you are, you can download the magazine through the Hero Complex iPad reader app. The app is 99 cents, but each magazine is free, so you can check out our back issues as well.
