I was thinking now that Carol Danvers has relinquished her "Ms Marvel" moniker, perhaps Monica Rambeau ought to pick up the name. Never liked "Photon" or "Pulsar."

I also strongly feel that Monica needs an entirely new power-set in order to be workable in contemporary comics. Monica was created at a time when storytelling devices such as thought balloons and the omniscient narrator were still in fashion, and now they're not. It's easy enough for an artist to convey "Captain America throws his shield" or "Wolverine pops his claws" or "Iron Man fires his repulsors" without accompanied narration, but "Monica shifts her body into neutrinos?" Pretty difficult to get that across to a reader without bringing narration into it.

It never ever made sense for Monica to be linked with the Marvels, imo. She should never use that name. I do love Monica, though, but I think Photon or Pulsar are much more appropriate names.

Same with that Ventura chick.

The only one deserving of the Ms. Marvel name, imo, is Ultra Girl, to whom Carol passed down her costume.
