Subj: Because she's got the kind of power that's really hard for someone that isn't really, really good to write without taking over the story.

Just something that really bothers me. For most of us old school Avengers fans she is very popular. She is highly respected. Great sense of morals. great look. I understand after Roger Stern stopped writing her that some writers had a hard time writing her due to her being so powerful. also like Storm, she represents being a strong black woman. Diversity isn't bad. I think people who started reading Avengers when Wolverine joined would of really liked her as a hero (though I'd be scared with what Bendis would do to her if she did, so maybe it's not such a bad thing). She kinda just shows up in the background here and there but the last few times she had any major screen time, she was portrayed as kinda vapid and slutty (Marvel Divas) or B####Y and unconfident (Nextwave....though it has been debatable as to whether or not that is in continuity). Those portrayals are NOT what Monica is about.

What are your thoughts?

Which is why very few Marvel writers since Stern have been able to use her... they just aren't good enough to figure out how someone with her power levels wouldn't beat anything a villain threw at her.

This is unfortunate. Stern's Captain Marvel (If Marvel wants me to stop calling her that, bring back Mar-Vell to stay and we'll talk.) is one of the best female Avengers, and it's a genuine shame that we got her brainwashed by HATE in Nextwave and her characterization hasn't come back yet. I miss her.
