How would YOU rate JOCASTA -as an Avenger- on a scale of 10?

Optional:

What's a most memorable "Avengers scene" with her that is stored in your memory?
[Examples: http://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=avengers-2013102623200838]

What would you have The Marvel Bullpen do with the character now?

BTW, do you think her hair look was in any way inspiration for Aayla Secura? \:\)

I give her a solid 8 but I think my favorite arc of Jocasta wasn't as an Avenger. While my first remembrance of her was against the Weather Men, Fred Van Lente work on Jocasta in Marvel Zombies 3 is my favorite.

I can't give her more than a 4. She's best known, to me, for flaking out and just leaving before being given actual full membership, and just being prone to manipulation by Ultron.

I sort of liked what they were doing with her in Avengers Academy.

And no, I don't think the Star Wars people even remotely knew what Jocasta was. I don't think there's much resemblance, either.

1. She's the worst.

That time Ultron smacked her. He really is his father's son.

Sold for scrap. Or just leave her with Ultron. Don't care.

I don't know or care who that is.

Her history seems a little bit convoluted/confusing to me, so I'm not really a big fan. I like her as being helpful to the Avengers, but as an actual team member? She's not one of my favorites, but she seems like a character with SOME potential. So, 3-4 (I'm leaning more toward 3, 4 being a bit generous.).

Yes.

1. She was destroyed in a Marvel Two-In-One story.
2. She was reassembled in the High Evolutionary 80s Annual crossover/event, only to die again, sacrificing herself to save the Avengers.
3. Madame Menace resurrected her again much later in an Iron Man story (and she sacrificed herself again).
4. She was then Tony's resident AI for a bit (and she sacrificed herself for him-- again).
5. A bit later, the AI was restored and put into the Iron Man suit. After a battle with Antigone, she wound up with Antigone's body (gold). She's been alive since this time.

Then suddenly she was back in her regular body for a cameo in "Disassembled."

There's nothing really very confusing about her though. She's Ultron's Bride of Frankenstein, who doesn't want to be.

I always liked Jocasta, and always was happy, when she showed up. Wish she could stay longer as an Avenger and do not sacrifice herself again and again. Wasn´t she in Pyms Avengers A.I. too? Can´t remember.
She has many ptential, I would rate her as 8!

Yes, she was in Avengers AI, and particularly badass.

I like her, but she never really clicked in the Avengers. Although that being said, she clicked better in the Avengers than anywhere else. Since the question is Jocasta as an Avenger, I'd rate her about 3 out of 10. Better than the likes of Deathcry and D-Man, but definitely not even close to top tier.

My favorite use of Jocasta was as Pym's weird love interest in Slott's Mighty Avengers run. She was created using Jan's brain engrams, so they made a bit of sense, but were considerably creepy too.




And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!

But thanks for clearing that up. Characters who keep dying and coming back are usually my least favorite characters, so I don't really care about her that much.

Resurrections like this aren't confusing. Nothing about the character changed.
