***Against The Hood and her army she is.


Pity that no one told Bendis:
>
> 1) Tigra is actually a NYC police officer. That happened in her mini series a few years back. Hence the cops who pulled guns on her a few issues ago would have known her (cat-cop is pretty big news). If that changed somehow I would love to hear when it did.

***What NYPD will do against The hood and his army...I have no idea...probably a little less then nothing.


>
> 2) Tigra is one of the most recognizeable super heroes on the planet; she is a cat woman! This is not Gravity trying to stop a bank robbery, for Christ's sake. She was an Avenger both in NYC and on the left coast and is very much a public figure.

***What does any of that have to do with her getting her arse beat by a foe who is more powerful than her, has an army to back her up and will threaten her and her loved ones life to gt what he wants...so what she is a public figure...all that means is it will be a highly publicized death.


>
> 3) Tigra is a member of the Initiative, right? So unlike Parker, who had to worry about loved ones being hurt, she can actually turn to the likes of Stark for protection.

***LOL you mean like Peter Parker did, and Stark promised him his aunt May would be fine...then she gets shot and damn nears ends her life...ok.

Anthony addressed the other statements pretty effectively.

> ***What NYPD will do against The hood and his army...I have no idea...probably a little less then nothing.

The point I was making there was this little fact has been completely ignored by Bendis. If she were no longer a cop it would be nice if the issue were addressed somehow.


> ***What does any of that have to do with her getting her arse beat by a foe who is more powerful than her, has an army to back her up and will threaten her and her loved ones life to gt what he wants...so what she is a public figure...all that means is it will be a highly publicized death.

It goes back to when that cop pulled a gun on her and started all her problems. If she were still a cop then she could have identified herself as being one as well, for example. Why she got into trouble instead of the cop really makes not sense as Tigra is a highly recognizeable hero; how many cat women are running around in the MU?

> ***LOL you mean like Peter Parker did, and Stark promised him his aunt May would be fine...then she gets shot and damn nears ends her life...ok.

Like Anthony said, it is a different circumstance. Tigra is not a fugitive and is entitled to quite a bit more in the way of Initiative cooperation. Her mother could be placed in protective custody while SHIELD takes down The Hood, much like a police officer's family who has been threatened would be.
