> I have to agree with alot of the points made about Tigra. She is out of character. Unfortunately the only thing I can think of is that she's a Skrull! Well, a Skrull who scares easily!

OH GOD I hope she's a skrull...that would be such a relief. While we're at it, can we make Hawkeye, Wanda, Hank Pym, Quicksilver and a lot of other old-school Avengers skrulls as well?

I am a big Tigra fan from her West Coast Avengers days, and she never gets any respect....I don't expect her to be the equal of Wolverine but she should be able to hold her own better than she has been lately.

If I were to compare Tigra to other Avengers in terms of combat prowess, I would say she'd be on par with the Black Widow or Jessica Drew....those two women get treated with respect, I don't see why Tigra doesn't.

Tigra's one of my 2 favorite characters, the other being the Thing. Maybe I have a thing for orange superheroes with 5-letter names that start with a T. I've been a fan since her Marvel Chillers days back in the mid-1970's. Actually, back in the mid-1970's, a fight between her and Wolverine would have been interesting because both got respect back then; of course, nowadays, such a fight would be ugly because Wolverine's vastly overrated. (I've seen him survive being dropped in a vat of molten metal and having all his flesh burned off.) As for HTH fighting skills, in all honesty I'd put Tigra more on a par with Hellcat, Silver Sable, Mockingbird, and Black Cat than Black Widow (who IMO is 1 tier higher), but of course on top of the skill Tigra has near-Spidey physical stats, strength, agility, speed, etc.
