    Also, it is apparent from this thread that many people are unaware that "bird" is a slang term for a woman. Wonder Woman would not need a bird-themed name to join. For the most iconic part of the team's run, only two of the four women had an avian-themed name.
    Batgirl = winged creature
    Hawk
    Dove
    Lady Blackhawk
    Black Canary
    Strix = owl
    Huntress = any "bird of prey"

    Added with previous volume's "teases" of Penguin joining their numbers, hahaha

    "xxx Women" could be construed as something pornographic, what about "Women-X" ?
    "Birds" is or was a slang term for women in Britain, I don't know if it is widely known or used elsewhere.

    There you go!

    XX-Women. It works on different levels. Make it so Marvel! The title sells.
    Chill!

    I'm torn, I'm going to be giving Ms. Marx a chance to see what she brings to the Birds, but THIS looks like it could be simply an AMAZING title, IMO. And of course I only have so much money for comics and even just had everyone at my work agency get a .05% pay cut. So I'm wondering if this new all female X-Men (ironic title to be sure) comic will possibly syphon some sales from the available small female team niche in comics, and this news could affect Birds.

    Will some Birds and DC fans be giving this title a shot? If good and you have to pick one or the other......?
    Storm with a mohawk again? That's not something I want to read.

    Why HAVE storm and Rogue gone back to much older looks?

    It is also interesting to note how covered up Psylocke is. You can tell who the target audience for female centric titles are by how much skin they show.
    Chill!

    For starters, the book is called "X-Men" because it's about the X-Men. The cast just happens to be female.

    I don't think the new book will be much of a competition for BoP, the Birds have had a book for over a decade and I doubt their readers are going to suddenly drop the book because Marvel has two teams with a female cast.

    I mean:

    Oracle--not a bird
    Black Canary
    Lady Blackhawk
    Huntress--not a bird

    The original team was just Oracle and Black Canary with occasional appearances by other ladies like Catwoman, Huntress, and Cheshire's group the Ravens (who did not themselves have avian themed names apart from the team's moniker).
    Pull list:
    Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Worlds' Finest, My Little Pony, The Flash, Birds of Prey, Batman '66

    Silly OP. BoP has been running as an ongoing title for a decade and a half or more now. Its earned enough respect to not need to 'compete' with the X-girls.
