By making one of the only female solo-comics a "woman's issue" or "girl power parade" would totally destroys the point of what feminism should stand for! Surely it shouldn't matter that she's a woman? She is first and foremost a superhero. Why not make the comic about that, rather than ladden un-necessary observations that the reader already sees. We know she's a woman, it's pretty obvious (in fact her costume leaves little to the imagination in that regard). We know she's strong. We KNOW she's intelligent (Dr. Soften, anyone?).
And I agree that the character was originally created for the feminist uprising. But times have changed. A LOT of change. Why can't Ms. Marvel evolve, and be a superhero, regardless of gender? Surely that would be the best "message" to convey? That it doesn't matter, and therefore we won't spend any time focusing on it?
