This is exactly what happens when writers incorrectly try to make a comic aimed at capturing a female audience; it becomes nothing more than fluff and stereotypes. It is insulting to women; implying the extent of their interest in comics is romance and girl talk; and would NEVER get approved if it was for a male audience. Can you imagine someone pitching Ant Man II, Human Torch, Fixer and Iceman gather together to play a poker match, while recounting their hottest dates and worst hang-ups? They'll call it Dude, Where's My Superheroine Ho?. Lame! And yet clearly some Marvel writer thinks that dribble is what all female audiences want.
Which is exactly why Ms. Marvel should steer clear of this pitfall; and just remain a fabulous comic about the fabulous Ms. Marvel and her superhero adventures; and not try and make it a feminist statement.
P.S. WOW! The King in Yellow sounds really good (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_king_in_yellow). Gonna have to go find a copy!
