As for being relatable, I will say that some characters I have a hard time warming to, because it is difficult to relate to. Superman is a prime example; a benevolent alien who comes to Earth to do pure good, with godlike powers. That is difficult for me to grasp. Wonder Woman is a goddess type figure with godlike powers who has come to the regular world to change it.
Spider-Woman is an ex terrorist, ex SHIELD agent, was told she was evolved from spiders, her father experimented on her when she was in the womb, left in the care of sentient animal hybrids, depowered and put in cold storage by aliens who used her likeness to hurt Earth's superheroes. As the co mod of the Spider-Woman board, even that is a LOT to handle.
Now Ms. Marvel(Carol Danvers, at least) is an ex Air Force officer, CIA agent, superhero recovering alcoholic and sci fi writer with powers given to her by an alien machine who was made pregnant by a time traveling rapist with a quasi Oedipal complex and was depowered by Rogue and dumped in water, with no memories or emotional attachments who found herself Earth's premier super hero in an alternate time line. Now I'm not saying that is easy to relate to, but it just goes to show how convoluted some of these character back stories are. They're not all cut and dried like Spider-Man.
