A lot of DC and Marvel characters are being turned female for no reason these days. But that begs the question, are there any female cape heroes that would be better/more interesting if they were turned male?

I don't know if you mean Sue back when her only power was turning invisible, because her powers haven't been weak-ass for a long time. As far as I know she's the only one of the F4 that's slapped the shit out of Doom solo.

There are plenty of male characters with shit powers, I don't see why one more would be so outrageous.

x-23 taking up the Wolverine mantel seems more like a slap in the face to x-23 than anything.
Then again, I guess they did gradually do away with the 'I'm my own person' side of her personality
Why not take up the ignoble name of Wolverine?

They don't make me uncomfortable but they derail literally every thread. There is nothing more sexually pent up than a virgin faggot.

To be fair, they did have Laura in a weekly series building up to her taking the mantle instead of just suddenly getting it like Jane or a lot of legacies these days.

Unfortunately, the book was total shit.

Well now I'm wondering why there's no variation of the Batman universe where Bruce was born a woman.
The personality should stay EXACTLY the same. Bitter, withdrawn, tormented by loss and vengeful tampered with a sense of greater good and pure, raw justice.

Not a shitty tweenybopper bat girl who takes selfies, not a petite red-haired fangirl turned hero. A little girl who's parents were murdered and who grew up first at an all girl's bordering school and then under the care of the family butler.

Of course she would have to host the occasional gala event and be seen with some handsome men from time to time, even if her only love was fighting crime.

But there is. There's Earth-11 and there's the Elseworlds where Jim Gordon was killed trying to save the Waynes from Joe Chill, so Barbara became Batgirl using supercomputers and drones to police Gotham.

Because it's correct. Multiverse shit is pointless and never goes anywhere, it's the cheapest possible way for writers to try a concept they otherwise can't because of the "sacred canons" they happily violate every other week to create that sweet. sweet buzz that might help move one or two extra copies. No one fucking cares about multiverse shit and alternate earths, you dumb fuck. Just do a standalone like Red Son if you have something you want to try outside of the continuity.

Because it means there's nothing at risk, nothing whatsoever. No reason to get invested in it for any reason since it's pointless fluff that can stop existing at any seconds notice because the writers feels like it.

It's the same reason Blizzard can't get anyone to give a shit about the world in WoD. No stakes in the main story.

So is Dick Grayson the most successful character in comics? He started out as a side kick in the 1940s became his own hero, was able to retain being that hero through every retcon since, and has taken the mantle of his mentor for a few years IRL multiple times.

Their de facto leader, even.
It's fantastic, you need to read it right now, although he's not dressing like earth-tone Batman anymore.
Instead, they've amped up his sex appeal.

This is a trick question. All the female superheros are just female version of already existing male super hero.

Yeah, DC doesn't play that shit.
Closest thing I can think of is Nobody II, the first one's daughter.

>>77806073
I can't think of any other medium where the standard of criticism is so low. ComicVine's reviewers in general are borderline retarded, so many of their reviews come down to "I like this comic because it is good and the art was nice to look at and the words were cool too. 5 stars"
>>
>>77806085
>although he's not dressing like earth-tone Batman anymore.

Sounds like the best move they could have made
>>
>>77806016
I would even argue that he is more successful since he went from just being a sidekick to his own hero. I also loved watching him grow from a boy into his own man right before our very eyes.
>>
>>77806085
As someone whi never read Catman, would it be better to read something where he is a joke, before reading the story that made him awesome again?
>>
>>77805778
Haha no you faggot. It's still Batman.
>>
>>77806188
I don't mean successful in regards to like commercialism. I mean successful in regards to escaping the sidekick status. Everyone else gets kicked back to their sidekick roles except him. I guess that extends to Batman's success as well cause the whole Batfamily gets to stay meanwhile other sidekicks get completely wiped from continuity.
>>
>>77805677
you are confusing time travel with alternate universes. they are largely conspiratory but not always.

>>
>>77804487
Isn't it more that Marvel changes TITLES more than DC, DC likes to stick with their big names, but Marvel replaces the on a regular basis. Who cares if some of them are women, been happening for a long time and I don't think people had a problem with Hawkeye-girl. As long as they are their own personality, fine.

Unfortunately, the poster girl of this is Whor and she doesn't have a personality beyond bad feminist writing. I also like some feminist writing, but god damn this shit is terrible

Ok here I have no idea what happened, and admit to being a filthy casual

As for deadpool, from what I understand he has tried to be a hero numerous times, but his own insanity prevented him in one way or another. Deadpool chose to become a mercenary, and while his past was tragic, he has always known that killing is wrong etc. I'm just genuinely curious how he became a leader of the greatest global superhero team. What changed?

>>77806470
>Isn't it more that Marvel changes TITLES more than DC, DC likes to stick with their big names, but Marvel replaces the on a regular basis.
Until recently it was basically the reverse.

DC LOVES legacy characters
>>
>>77808657
Eh, I think the difference is that with few exceptions, DC's legacy heroes were bred for the new roles for years, sometimes decades even; fans accept Wally as Flash and Dick as Batman because they're familiar with those characters and it feels right and logical for them to step into their mentors' shoes. Even for a team like the JSA which is filled with legacy heroes, the majority of them are related by blood to the old heroes or were sidekicks.

When Marvel does stuff like making Jane of all people Thor over better choices like Sif or making X-23 the new Wolverine even though so much of her past characterization is about moving away from being Wolverine, it's just bizarre.
>>
>>77804487
Name one that isn't Thor.
And no, ANAD Wolverine is just a new mantle and a solo ongoing for X-23.
