I think you are overstating it's popularity. It is not like it is on Harry Potter levels of popularity. It's just the new "in" thing.
Harry Potter has a wider appeal for sure. But I think you're underestimating it. Do you know any teenage girls? I went with extended family to the opening day of Hunger Games and it made money like gangbusters. Teen girls were going nuts.

I saw the movie and generally enjoyed it (nice to have a female hero) but it is not influential compared to some of the other things on the cover. It's been around too short of time for that.
Not disagreeing with this point, but consider the marketing, they threw Katniss on the cover to sell the magazine, it's plain and simple.
