    In addition, soon after She-Hulk, I believe Sabra appeared and it was a big deal. Besides a new female Jewish superheroine, she had (then) She-Hulk strength! Sabra was super-strength female #5. A few years after that we got Rogue with Ms Marvel's super-strength.(#6).

    Thundra's chain was such an interesting design choice. Both a unique weapon, and clever commentary feature.

    As I recall it, both her future and a misogynist counterpart future timeline were merged and averaged one another's extremes out. As for Thundra herself, the last I recall of her, she'd become Arkon's Queen on his barbaric homeworld.

    Yes, I agree. The chain is unique. While one end can attach to her bracelet allowing it to be wrapped totally around her forearm, the other end sometimes has a hard armament that Thundra can use when throwing the chain.

    Yeah, I like her much better than She-Hulk. She has a great costume, and an interesting personality. I'm not sure why they gave her a daughter (with the Hulk as a father), but I guess it gives her a stronger connection to the rest of the Marvel universe.

    An interesting note from the pics above: a few were redone to show characters that were not there in the original drawings! The one of "Thundra" punching "Ms Marvel" through the wall should be Ms Marvel punching a female Doctor Spectrum. The other one with Thundra smashing Sub-Mariner should be the Thing.
    I realized that the Namor image was added, but didn't realize that the Ms. Marvel image was edited. I know in the Avengers Annual that the scene is from -- did show Thundra punching Ms. M. through a wall, but it may have show differently. The picture of her picturing Namor, I believe , featured Hyperion -- from Marvel Two-In-One. She did however punch Namor in a Fantastic Four story.

    Thundra was Wonder Woman on steroids. I'm pretty sure the chain was her version of WW's golden lasso -- even though it has no special properties.

    I hadn't ever thought of that, but it makes a ton of sense!

    Exactly! Femizon/Amazon, the most notable and strongest member of the society sent out into "man's world", strong sense of identity, strong, fast, tiaras, bracelets (one for Thundra).

    I always took it that Thundra's chain was made of an exceptionally strong (blue) 23rd century metal.

    Yep. And just as Wonder Woman and Superman had the same color scheme, Thundra and Hyperion did as well -- including strawberry blonde hair. I really enjoyed their short arc in Marvel Two-In-One before they both got exiled.
