    I'm pretty sure Diana being a Golden Ager wasn't done for her sake, but for the JSA's.

    Eh, this really just boils down to how one perceives Etta and what her role should be in the mythos.

    That's a fair point, and you're right; it is unfair to compare them on a 1-1 kind of scale.

    Yeah, I've gathered as much. I've read about the team, and seen them around plenty, I just never sat down and read Young Avengers and Hulkling is my least favorite of Marv's kids because of it.
