This thread has turned into the Outhouse version of "Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle" meets "Groundhog Day" :lol:

Let me state it again: I am basing this on how long the titles ran and whether or not anyone likes it, those books lasted a good run at DC as opposed the Marvel ones. How and why they became popular is not what I am discussing.

And those Marvel females in team books can't possibly have become popular largely because they're featured in said team books with male characters.

I was being sarcastic. I don't give two shits why a book is popular. I just know DC's female titles have a much better track record than Marvel's.

In She Hulk's first issue she gets a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce, and as a reader back in those days I can tell you that yes, She Hulk was interesting and became popular at first because of the connection to the Hulk. Her de-hulked character didn't have much depth in those early issues.

I know, I was being sarcastic. All of those female characters were connected to their male counterparts.

Dark Paw is not amused by your impertinence. I think someone is asking to be zip-zapped from the looks of it.
