I agree/disagree with IGN about Ms. Marvel

I agree with IGN Comics that Carol Danvers, Ms. Marvel of the MCU, is one numero uno babe, and one of the best women in the MCU's cast of characters. I do not however, agree with this part:
After the events of Civil War, Ms. Marvel is poised to be one of the most powerful characters in comics.
After Civil War, and the eight issue of Carol's new series, they came pretty close to rendering her unlikable. Blogger Calvin Pitt (via Mortlake on the Shuylkill) said that:
I haven't hated the main character of a book I bought this much since Tim Drake at the end of Robin's first One Year Later arc (the little bastard).
Carol took on a standing as dreadful as those of Mr. Fantastic and Iron Man in CW, and if we're past that now, we - and she - should only be so lucky.

IGN's right that Ms. Marvel is a number one hottie, but they shouldn't promote her based on a miniseries as terrible as Civil War was. That's superficial at worst, and obscures many of the deeper details about CW.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
