Much of that seems to be that she's a bit too much of a "flawless" character for most writers. She has a very expansive powerset, she's a trained law officer and former Avenger who therefore lacks the "rookie" hook, and she never developed an interesting non-costumed life to generate drama.
On the other side of things, no one's really found an alternate powerset for her that wasn't rather generic (super-strength, energy blasts). She's a difficult character to use in the Marvel Universe, where the flaws and oddities of the heroes most often drive the stories. What are Monica's flaws and oddities, other than the comically insane personality Ellis gave her in a humor-based series?
