    Default Is There a Unique Male Hero That Doesn't Have a Female Version...But Should?

    By "unique", I'm referring to original characters, not homage or analogue characters. I'm working on yet another Rule 63, gender swap drawing and want to use someone who doesn't already have a female version. Suggestions???

    Much appreciated in advance.

    Has there been a female Moon Knight? There must have been several MK over the centuries, like there has been several Black Panther and Black Knight.
    But I don't think they ever introduced one.

    Other big names characters I can think of (outside famous X-Men like Cable or Beast or Iceman) are Luke Cage and Blade (who almost had one, but it didn't happen).

    edit: But on the "should" part, I'd say only Moon Knight qualifies.
    Or maybe "national" heroes like Union Jack or Arabian Knight too.

    Is there a female Mr. Fantastic out there?

    Hell, I'm not sure if characters with elongated powers tend to have female versions...

    The closest I have ever seen of this is Elastigirl from the Incredibles.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    I feel like the X-men are good fodder for this. Outside of Wolverine or Rogue stealing powers, have they done any other female clones of Cyclops, Colossus, Gambit, etc?

    The short lived Children of Atom had a female Gambit and a female Cyclops.

    Moon Knight is definitely a good choice. Also Blade.

    Hulk (She-Hulk), Thor (Jane Foster), Hank Pym as Giant-Man (Stature) and Yellowjacket (Rita DeMara), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Iron Man (Rescue, Riri), Spider-Man (Spider Woman 1, Spider Woman 2, Silk, assorted Spider Girls / Arana), Daredevil (Elektra). Vision -> Viv Vision.

    I guess Danielle Cage could count for Luke Cage or Colleen Wing for Iron Fist, but not really. (The Iron Fist / Pirate Queen of Ping or whatever her name was from the Immortal Iron Fist run might be the better 'lady Iron Fist.')

    Johnny Storm -> Frankie Raye, Ben Grimm -> Sharon Ventura. Reed Richards, not so much, although there was a 'Mrs. Fantastic' in an issue of What If (Sue Storm with stretchy powers, while Reed was Big Brain, Johnny was Mandroid and Ben was Dragonfly, IIRC).

    No lady Dr. Strange, as of yet. No Hercu-Lass. Kitty Pryde was briefly a lady Star-Lord.

    Lady Namor -> Namorita or Namora. Quicksilver another one with no lady counterpart, that I know of. Son of Satan -> Satana.

    Cyclops, both the Children of the Atom character, and also Syphon, from some long-ago X-Men comic (some woman with eyebeams that Jean said reminded her of Scott). Colossus, that new character Rasputin, from Dawn of X? Nightcrawler -> Nocturne / TJ. Banshee -> Siryn / Theresa. Wolverine -> Laura Kinney. Sunfire - Leyu or whatever Sunpyre's name was. That leaves Iceman, Angel and Thunderbird, from the original and All-New lineups. Even Magneto has Lorna and Charles has Cassandra Nova.

    (Although there are tons of winged mutant chicklets, but all of them have bug wings, like Butterfly/Lucy Priest, Papillion/some French girl whose name I forget, Sprite/Jiang Jin something?, Angel Salvadore or Iolanthe/Kate Atkinson. Or Megan Gwynn/Pixie, the most famous of them, who I almost forgot...)

    Kamala Khan. unless you're also talking about the intellect/science-hero angle. Then your analog is Moon Girl (smarter than Reed).

    nominally, Theresa Parker is "lady Falcon" now, with her glider wings.

    Actually there’s been a female Iron Fist for a couple years now with Pei, a young monk from K’un-Lun that has the power of the Iron Fist and Danny is training/is the legal guardian of. She’s actually appeared pretty consistently in Iron Fist books since.

    Eros/Starfox has the non-conventional (for an Eternal) ability to stimulate the pleasure centers of others, ultimately causing euphoria. There are empaths aplenty but they don't have such a highly specialized use of their powers to my knowledge. Venus the siren of Agents of Atlas can induce pleasure with her voice, but I don't know if you can directly compare her with Starfox.
