Some very nice art. But even by simple standards the introduction of Ready Girl was wanting when it actually came to describing her who she is and what she does. It's hard to imagine how a newbie reader would appreciate her superpowers and popularity in-story. Whatever - it didn't cost me. Does anyone think/want her to be acknowledged in the 616 (Prime, whatever) Earth? Y'never know it could be assumed - ala FLUX. On the plus side Marvel ain't blindsiding regular readers with another INSTANT NEW MEMBER. It looks like the Marvel Digital Universe ANAD Avengers just teamed up with an independant heroine to battle old-school Whirlwind, eh?

Somewhat interesting was that this ANADA team claims to have a "Primary Meeting Place" in "the city" - and this should be established in the main title if Tony was referring to a set NYC rendezvous location. Or the main book coulc just have Tony buy his Stark Tower back ASAP since Mr.Kang Gryphon has been exposed.

Hmmmm. Her costume looks kind of bland, almost like it came right out of the late Golden Age/early Silver Age? Supergirl comics. I'm guessing the tiara was Disney's idea to appeal to the same target audience as the Disney Princess merchandise? Perhaps it is meant to make her consumer safe/friendly. However, the artwork is indeed very nice. I don't see her ever really showing up in the mainstream Avengers comics.

She kind of reminds me of DC's attempt to do a very similar character, for a somewhat similar reason, named Protector, a "member" of the Teen Titans from 1983 (main hero of an anti-drug cautionary comic book). Oddly, Protector did eventually become referenced in DC's Who's Who series (similar to the Marvel Handbooks), and even made a cameo in an issue of Secret Files, but never actually adventured with the Teen Titans in their main books.

Thanks for sharing this. I always love obscure comicbook characters. \(wubya\)
