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?

I was searching for something completely different (the character Charcoal from Thunderbolts) and I came across the story about Stern and Marvel getting into it over the treatment of the Captain Marvel character.

Hopefully the link works - it's the 3rd story in the link.
