I have been a fan of comic books for years and two of my favorite characters, one Marvel and one DC, are always getting the short end of the stick.
Power Girl has had 2 series, She Hulk had at least 3, and both were cancelled because they weren't considered popular enough.
I seriously think that the editors had no idea how create the comics for their supposed target audience.
They wrote books for a mainly female audience - FAILED ATTEMPT
Or horny fanboys - FAILED ATTEMPT
Then even tried to make them full-blown dramatic superheroes like their male counterparts - DOUBLE FAIL BECAUSE THEY AREN"T THEM
(Power Girl/Superman, She-Hulk/Hulk if you don't know your comic book characters)
Know what audience really appreciated these ladies?
Comic book fans who were tired of formulaic, predictable, massive world-changing story lines and heroes who have to make gut-wrenching decisions and miraculous saves.
These are people who wanted a fun read, a little sexy, a little tongue-in-cheek and a whole lot of fun.
They wanted the inside jokes and easter eggs.
They wanted the cameos from well-known and almost forgotten heroes and villains.
If their comic books were a TV show they would be Community or Big Bang Theory.
The runs with Jimmy Palmiotti (Power Girl) and John Byrne (She-Hulk) were probably the closest to having these ladies living to their full potential.
(Jeph Loeb is a close second when he wrote She Hulk versus Red Hulk story line)
Now look at what we get now...
Powergirl is an alt-Supergirl and She-Hulk is the Cathy Griffin of the Marvel Universe.
I would kill for a decent writer like Dan Slott to write a Power Girl / She-Hulk crossover book.
Maybe illustrated by Amanda Conner and/or Frank Cho - they know how to draw strong and sexy females.
