Why would I care about strangle my enemies with their own bare hands when i can just explode them in tiny little pieces of flesh, bone and whatever they may be bring with them at the occasion.
From this point of view people without armor or energy shields are handicapped.
Misty Knight is an awesome character an I am anxious to see her full potential developed.
Marvel had their chance with their 2 biggest female characters who could rival Wonder Woman : Jean Grey and Storm. And they crapped on them for over a decade. Granted, Jean was dead and it made sense to continue Emma's relationship with Scott, but Storm could've been catapulted to new heights of glory in the last 7 years. However all we get is a sham of a marriage and Doomwar. Captain Marvel isn't going to be Marvel's foremost female hero just yet, even if she's being marketed so.
I'm really excited by the prospects of this series, and adding Hippolyta makes it even more interesting (hopefully).
Though, given Marvel's recent track record with female leads, it's hard to not think they will find a way to muck it up.
"... Act, that each tomorrow find us farther than today."
I think the only female in marvel that's made any progress at all over the years is Sue Richards and even she backpedles a bit when ever they need her to.
Emma Frost became a teacher at the Xavier school after Genosha was destroyed and all her students there got killed except Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
She was responsible for destroying Cassandra Nova the 1st time, and she tricked her into going into the body of Stuff when Nova came back. I think its safe to say Emma's on the side of the angels and has been for a long time. She was my favorite part of Grant Morrison's run. Her bitchy, shallow, petty and overcompensating attitude hasn't been captured right by any writer since, except Whedon and Gillen. Matt Fraction pretty much dumped on her during his run.
You tell her, Auntie Emma.
