Inspired by a Blogatog post, I did some basic statistics on planeswalkers and gender.

I included only black-border planeswalkers listed on Scryfall.
Planeswalker deck cards are included, so this is not a good measure of how many sets a character has appeared in.
The Royal Scions counts as half a point each to Will and Rowan.

Count: 30
Mean: 3.75
Median: 2
Mode: 1
Second mode: 2

Count: 25
Mean: 3.86
Median: 3
Mode: 1
Second mode: 3

Count: 2
Mean: 3.5
Median: 3.5



There are slightly fewer female planeswalkers, but the median female planeswalker gets one more appearance than the median male planeswalker. Whether that counts as parity is up to you.

Being in the Lorwyn 5 or the Gatewatch gets you significantly more cards than usual. Unless you're Teferi.

Also, not a new observation, but we need more nonbinary planeswalkers who aren't assholes or tragic figures.
