Oh, God, Emma Frost! I looove Emma Frost, she's fabulous, and apparently her series was aimed at teenage girls! With THOSE covers? Such a wasted opportunity. The new Nomad looks promising, though, and she has clothes on. Fingers crossed.
They're definitely doing better on race at the moment - love the move of Luke Cage into the A-List, and I love Cho. Of course, it's easier as they do have long-established characters of colour, so it's often an issue of promoting them rather than creating new characters - but yes, they've created some pretty cool new ones. There have been some mis-steps - the black Young Avenger was the one on drugs? Oh dear. And yeah, Black Panther... well. Um. There's a lot to be said about that, but at least Marvel made an effort.
Weirdly, I don't mind so much about Carol - she doesn't need the protection and she's sensibly high-necked so no risk of falling out. My main complaint is the side-boob - have it cover all of her breasts! Kate Bishop, on the other hand, should cover up that midriff. And I'm liking Bobbi's more sensible costume. At least they showed more restraint with fifteen-year-old Cassie than DC do with Supergirl. But yeah, DC and Marvel seem to just... not understand that female comic readers are really very similar to male comic readers. Or, indeed, that women are quite similar to men.
