    Hunh. Interesting. Regardless of its quality I foresee a swift cancellation.

    Sadly, I have to agree with you. It seems like these days, if the book isn't connected somehow to the Avengers, X-Men or Spider-Man, no one cares.

    That could be interesting. Personally, I liked Carol Danver's Ms. Marvel identity better than having her be Captain Marvel, but this is at least better than Moonstone as Ms. Marvel (I actually like Moonstone in the T-Bolts, but I thoght Dark Avengers sucked). I'll definately give this a chance, although I doubt it will make enough money to last long.

    That cover sure looks familiar.

    So being a shape shifter...is that going to make her a mutant? If I understand that write up she's just going to adopt the name and not likely have any ties to the Kree.
    I tend to not like these type of "mantle passings", done for the sake of doing it. Feels forced. I like it when there are at least ties, however loose.
    Her being a muslim teenager isn't the issue for me.

    Marvel is just re-teenaging a lot of their line.
    Morales in Ultimates
    Nova
    Ghost Rider
    Ms.Marvel is just the latest getting the re-teenage-ification treatment.

    Mystique is a Ms Marvel villain from her original series in the 70s.

    That could put Raven in proximity to Mar-Vell in his hey day.

    She probably got her powers from the Terrigen Bomb in INFINITY.

    It depends on the pitch.

    Where's the fun in that?

    Marvel has 50... 65? 65 years of continuity to draw from.

    Ooooo!

    Sharon Ventura's daughter?

    The article I read on IGN said that her origin ties into Inhumanity, she's even (blacked out) on the cover of Inhumanity #1. The series is being written by G. Willow Wilson, a Muslim woman, so hopefully it shouldn't be to exploitive.

    Back to exploitation...

    Did they hire her to write the book or did they invent the book for her to write?

    I believe the article said she pitched the idea. Creeping sharia law strikes again (joke!)

    Shouldn't her name be Ms. Marvel Junior?

    Her work with Vertigo did get her Eisner nomination so at least she knows what she is doing. Thought I doubt her series will do any better.

    The art sample for Ms marvel in the link I supplied look awful.

    Very indie.

    The cover was actually the Point One issue, not her book. I find this to be extremely interesting. I will probably check this out and give it a chance.

    This will definitely be a day one purchase for me.

    Though like others, I don't envision a long run, but still the idea intrigues me enough.

    The SRA ,may have been abolished, but S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers should give the noobs a stern talking to about power and responsibility.

    When Tony Stark erased Peter's marriage from reality, do you think first secured all the amature porn he recorded of Mary-Jane when she lived in the Tower into a special magic/science proof safebox?

    (This is canon. There were cameras in the Parkers bedroom and Stark was seen (by us) learing at the footage on a big screen.)
