Marvel and DC come up with characters not connected with existing franchises all the time. The problem is these character rarely if ever catch on due to being stuck with crappy writers and editors (because the companies aren't that confident in them) and/or fans dismissing them and not caring. There's also the fact that any new character created for the Big 2 will be considered property of the Big 2 and the creators will receive no money for whatever movie or tv deals they get meaning writers have less incentive to create new characters and save their stuff for indies.Vykrel said:serious question: have Marvel comics come up with any ORIGINAL female superheroes in recent years? any noteworthy ones?
it seems to me that in order to be diverse, their go-to tactic is to just sort of gender-bend existing heroes. She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Thor...ina. etc. etc.
its just so lazy.
