You can't go on The View to make a big shocking announcement about an existing character getting a solo series.

Because then it would be even more obvious that Aaron was just copying and ripping off of Jurgen's 90s/00s run on Thor.

Guess all the Whor people just don't read comics

>>78783937
What was her shtick again? I skipped right over the first half of Thor v2 and she crops up as a plot device towards the end of the second half. Something about being an ayy lmao?

I feel bad about how much Aaron shits all over her name but otherwise have no strong feelings about her.

She's more powerful now in her true cosmic being form, though it was pretty dumb to get rid of her just as she was being used again, same for Ultragirl who just dropped off the face of the planet after a while.

She's a cosmic being whose purpose is to help evolve sentient being to the next level of existence but she hadn't yet fully transcended into her cosmic form. Thanos destroyed her home world and she apparently burned out the bulk of her powers helping Thor, and transformed herself into an asgardian and tried to become his sidekick, seeing as everyone she ever knew was obliterated by Thanos.

Turns out that her powers weren't gone she was shirking her cosmic duties to hang out with the Odinson.

Shit, she must have been tucked away into a group shot or in the background somewhere.

>>78787108
She should form an ex-Carol Danvers sidekick support group with Anya.

>>78787108
Hell her boyfriend, Justice, didn't even ask her to join the new version of the new warriors. He just started hitting on Vertigo from salem's seven, and also forgot that Ultragirl even existed.

>>78787108
I wonder what Kamala Khan would do if she ever met Ultra Girl. She's such a huge fangirl that she probably knows Carol once gave her her original costume
>>
>>78787959
She would probably tell her that she's lucky Osborne isn't in charge anymore or she'd get sued for copyright infringement.

No one cared about him because he wasn't a blond-haired girl.

>>78789839
He appeared last in a tie-in for Fear Itself with Amadeus and Laura if I remember correctly. At least he didn't fall in the hands of teen book murderers like Hopeless.

X-23 kicked him in the nuts.

Thunderstrike was kind of douche during the mini, he got on everyone's nerves and even when they finally made it to safety, so he got swift kick to the balls because even in his asgardian form that's still a tender area.

Returned to limbo with the rest of the characters reintroduced in the initiative, along with all of the new characters introduced in the initiative.

>>78791061
She wasn't really dropped by Carol, Stormin' Norman used the power of litigation to make her surrender the suit so that he could give it to Moonstone. Ultragirl started fucking Bance not long after.

I wonder if Doc Green cured her of Gamma during his crusade

He managed to get to the Gamma Corps, Skaar, and even cured Doc Samson's corpse for good measure.

I don't think that Doc Green even remembered that she existed, I'm not even sure that Bruce ever met her at any point.

She's not in the movies.
>>
>>78786394
I'm honestly surprised nobody's used Ultra Girl. You'd think valley girl Supergirl pastiche would fly with the Tumblr generation. Make her the social media superheroine who Vines, streams, Instragrams and everything all of her stuff. Pair her up with Screwball as a somewhat friend/somewhat rival who work together mainly to promote each other or something and it could work.
>>
>>78792593
Some academy kids, the prerequisite young avengers, fucking Jolt of all people along with the other classic Thunderbolts, but no runaways.
>>
>>78792863
I'd read that.

>>78792863
Isn't Ultragirl also like kree Jesus?

Yes, yes she was.

It's Victoria Alvarez. Some blacktino that Danny found with China powers and gave Luke's old name to. He called Luke a sellout for fucking white girls
>>
>>78793217
He's also the son of one of Luke Cage's first enemies, Shades.
>>
>>78792967
Probably.

She's an intentional pastiche of Supergirl (and PAD's Supergirl specifically) IIRC.

1. Cho is the one that brought the team together. He is the one talking.
2. Robbie didn't even exist when this was made. Alejandra did though
>>
>>78788890

What's worse? Being utterly forgotten like Ultragirl, or being shat on in your every appearance like Firestar?

She was a fucking Avenger and then it's been 10 years of downhill from there.
>>
>>78793723
The former. It's possible to recover from the latter as you're at least kept somewhat in the minds of the fans. The latter means you'll never be developed and only show up as background filler or when someone needs to be killed off.

Or you'll get "revived" by being "reinvented" into a character whose only similarity to any previous stories is the name.

Ah, like Carol Danvers.

I want Kamala to use Mjolnir and get the Thor costume. If just for one issue.

Nope. They just don't like JaneThor and will accept any replacement. They would even accept Torunn

>>
>>78794831
I think a lot of it is that there's not really much of a role she holds. She's too cosmic to be an Asgardian but too Asgardian to really be a cosmic character (which is what Youth in Revolt was trying to transition her into IMO). She can't really be "Cosmic Thor" as we already have Beta Ray Bill to act as Cosmic Thor.

She's maybe work in a more Defenders style team that's a little more weird in the Cloud role or something but even that's probably a stretch. I like her design and I like the idea but it just seems like she's a hard character to really slot into anywhere.
>>
>>78796126
Was anything done with this? It's Bendis so I'm guessing the answer is "no" and it was just another in a long list of pulling obscure characters out of his ass to barely use or completely misuse ala Marvel Boy, The Hood, Superia or Dark Beast.

Also his last name is Rodgers? What?

That wasn't Bendis, that's from Nick Spencer's avengers world, the kids helped storm AIM island and disrupt their activities or something.

It's been a while since I read the issue.

>>78800125
Bendis didn't create the kids or decide who their parents were, that would be Kyle and Yost.

Torunn was cool.
>>
>>78796200

Nearly all of Luke's personal villains are regarded as farcical at best, and downright retarded at worst.

It's why you rarely see them being given anything other than bit parts and crowd shots.
