Poll: Which Marvel Woman Most Deserves Her Own Solo Book?
Yesterday we offered a choice of eight DC women and asked which one of them you thought most deserved a solo title -- and we emphasize the 'most' because, like so many of you, we think they'd all be excellent choices. Big Barda held the lead early in the day; Zatanna was your pick later on, and as of this writing its Poison Ivy with the most votes. If you haven't cast a vote, it's not too late to choose.
But today we want to look at Marvel's women in need of a spotlight, with a choice between eight fan favorite characters ranging from the long-established Sue Storm to the more recent America Chavez. The question is the same as before; assuming they all deserve a solo book, who deserves it the most?
Marvel's roster of solo female heroes is actually stronger than DC's right now, with current titles including Spider-Woman, Spider-Gwen, Silk, Angela, Thor, Storm, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, and Squirrel Girl. But Marvel has so many amazing women that we think the publisher can add a few more.
In fact, Marvel has so many that we've left the X-Men women off this list, and focused on the rest of the Marvel Universe. We've also left off characters who recently said goodbye to solo books, like Elektra and She-Hulk, but we're always hopeful that those books will make triumphant returns.
America Chavez was created by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta; Black Cat was created by Marv Wolfman and Keith Pollard; Hellcat was created by Ruth Atkinson; Medusa, Scarlet Witch, and Sue Storm were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby; Mockingbird was created by Len Wein and Neal Adams; and Monica Rambeau was created by Roger Stern and John Romita Jr.
We kept our numbers to a manageable eight, but we're sure you'll tell us who we unforgivably left out in the comments!
