Watch as the fanbase and reviewers complain about the fights not being impressive or that they don't feel like 3-4 dollars for a 20 page slugfest isn't worth it =V

Sano: I think the other problem with female leads is that often times it feels like the premise or concept of the character is just to push the"girl power"aspect and often times the gender is the sole point of interest. This is especially a problem in a market that is dominated by males, so I think the way females are being written just isn't appealing to boys since they cant identify with the characters on a emotional level like they could with a male lead. I think to make a female lead appealing, they need to write her as a character first instead of a woman first, this way the gender just seems irrelevant because regardless of gender the character is still a great character,

Tizoc the pic's not working for me (might just be the server that I'm on) but Crimsonspider89 beat you to it anyway.
She'll probably stay on as Captain Marvel for a good four to five years or so (that's the usual turn around for comics, after five years a lot of things snap back to 'normal' because the theory goes the audience changes).
Her book itself probably won't last because Marvel titles with female leads never do sadly. Fan demand kept M2 Spider-Girl around for as long as it did (Marvel's longest running heroine comic). I guess X-Men Legacy staring Rogue is skating by, but it didn't start out focusing on Rogue and the book's not named Rogue either.
Marvel doesn't really have a 'Wonder Woman.' Storm is usually the go-to-person for that (since Stan Lee dubbed her as Marvel's Wonder Woman) but she doesn't have her own book. This might be an attempt for Marvel to have a Wonder Woman.
Sadly the only thing that stops Wonder Woman from getting canceled is that it's one of DC's big 3 and they probably will never can it. Most of the time the sales are not there.
Unfortunately, unless the female character is 'slutting it up' like Witchblade or something along those lines the majority of the comic buying audience just doesn't care sadly.
Brain Wood will write Ultimate X-Men and adjectiveless X-Men.

I think i'll buy the FF books digital. Is the human torch running around with Spidey?

I never really gave much thought to that but its so very true.... thats really disappointing when I think about it.
Even mystique, she hulk, and the emma book couldn't stick around and they where fairly "loose" or "loose" looking.

Next month they'll be living together but I don't think that will last more than one issue so Torch hanging out with Spidey in ASM fits. Well maybe a couple of issues at best.

I'm going to see Jeph Loeb tomorrow XD.
With Paul Dini on Marvel now the shows and animated movies should be much better now.

Say did anyone else catch the fake Spider-Man villain on Young Justice? I think Josh Keaton may have voiced him too, sounded similar. Peter David wrote the episode but I think Greg Weisman of Spectacular Spider-Man fame was having a bit of fun lol!
