    Electricity, light, and heat are easy enough to depict wordlessly with a little artistic talent; x-rays, too, with some creativity (like showing see-through flesh or something). I don't see those as being deal-breakers or requiring captions at all.

    Something like neutrinos might take a bit more work -- another character or device sensing them, perhaps, or, yes, a one-off caption simply stating the energy-form's nature placed next to to Monica. Iron Fit and Doctor Strange now get those sorts of things telling the reader the name of the cool kung-fu gimmick or magic spell they're using, so why not Monica?

You tell me. It's been twenty-five years since Roger Stern was the regular writer on Avengers. Since then, the only writer to pick Monica up as a feature character for an ongoing series has been Warren Ellis in a series that lasted only a year. Apart from that, Monica's resume has been twenty-five years of sporadic appearances. Cameos or supporting roles in miniseries. Friggin' Squirrel-Girl has gotten more attention than she has.

There's a decided lack of interest in her among creators for some reason or another.
