SOURCE: "Her-Oes" Hit Marvel
Her-Oes? I'd feel better about this if they hadn't chosen to capitalize tHOse two letters...
Marvel, in their latest attempt to attract young female readers - is now planning a "teen-centric mini featuring younger versions of some of the biggest superheroines from their Avengers franchise".
Odd definition of biggest, seeing as how it includes...
1. A heroine who is currently dead in most of the Marvel Universes (Wasp)
2. A heroine who is a weaker knock-off of a male hero (She Hulk)
3. A heroine who is currently dead in the main Marvel universe AND a weaker knock-off of a male hero. (Namorita)
4. A heroine who was - until recently - dead in the main Marvel universe (Ms. Marvel)
5. Uh... some blonde girl. Seriously, the article I read didn't identify the 5th member of the team!
Meanwhile, DC Comics is bringing back Birds of Prey with fan favorite Gail Simone writing.
