    In the 60’s, Marvel Girl was the weakest (before she got various retcon updgrades to her power level) yet now she’s one of the more popular X Members......I’d say maybe one of the X Statix.....

    hmmm. just my opinion but, in the context of the X-Men, she was already one of the more popular members. she was the only female in the book. and i wouldn't call her any weaker than Angel or Iceman. she could move things with her mind. going entirely by the standards of that era, she was was a step above the Invisible Girl.

    Only a lot of marvel comics 'wonder women' to be lame? None of marvel comics 'supermen'?

    Yeah, this was back in the day when Iceman threw snowballs and Angel, was, well, Angel. Marvel Girl blew both of them out of the water, even back when her telekinesis was limited to about as much as she could lift, physically.

    It is true that Marvel hasn't had quite as much of a focus on a ladies-only book like DC's Birds of Prey, with attempts like the Fearless Defenders or A-Force getting a *much* shorter run, and long after DC's ladies-run team, and had less solo books devoted to a female character like DC's Wonder Woman, despite their relatively recent push of Carol Danvers.

    IMO, the focus should perhaps have gone on someone who is less like Wonder Woman or Supergirl, thematically or visually (just as, again, IMO, Marvel's strongest male characters are not the ones who ape Superman or Batman, Flash or Green Lantern, but the more 'Marvel' Hulks and Spider-Men and Iron Men and Thors, which brings us back to people like Jean Grey, or Storm, or the Invisible Woman, who have power-sets generally not already linked to a more famous DC property), but I'm just a backseat driver on this journey.
