This theme is perhaps a little superceded for some by the recent slates of Marvel and DC movies, which may have made some people’s dreams come true already.

On the other hand, maybe it didn’t and there’s some long overlooked character you would LOVE to see turned into a movie.

Alas, my tendency to overthink things kicked in and I realised that in terms of a movie, I was looking for something very specific.

There are many series I think deserve their own TV series (live action or animated) that’s a lot easier for me to think of, since it would allow for more characters and more development.

Amethyst is just begging for a proper cartoon series (Whether you go Masters of the Universe style, or a little more serious take a la Legend of Korra), the story of a world hopping magical girl in a dimension where gemstones have powers seems like a winner.

The New Mutants has teen drama and powers and as long as they avoid some of the unfortunate choices they made in the 1990’s “Generation X” TV movie, it could be great.

The Jack Knight Starman might be fun, as a low key superhero cum businessman, though I'd worry it might get a bit Smallville "Monster of the Week".

A Madame Xanadu anthology supernatural show could be great, as she offers advice through her card readings to people who come to her shop to ask her help with supernatural situations, and the results of them following, or not following, her advice… perhaps with guest appearances by the Phantom Stranger if things get REALLY out of hand.

No, my final choice was one that surprised even me, but as soon as I thought of it, it just clicked…

It’s Captain Marvel….

No not that Captain Marvel, the OTHER Captain Marvel

No not that one either, the OTHER other one

And probably not that one either, I mean, CAPTAIN MARVEL

You know.... Monica Rambeau )

I thought this would be fun post to do and another opportunity for everyone to participate.

So last week my best friend and I were at a local comic book store and I spotted Adam Hughes's poster The Real Power Of The DC Universe:

This has always been one of my pieces because it showcases and celebrates arguably the most dominant female characters (and some of the most dominant characters period), and not to mention some of my all-time favorite characters in comics. What I always find interesting about that picture is that some of the characters showcased, I wouldn't have initially thought of as a major player in the DC Universe but when I pondered further, I realized that an argument could be made on the impact they've made on comics and even comic-related media (movies, cartoons, etc.).

This of course got me thinking about Marvel. If I had to choose 11 heroines, anti-heroines who have made the biggest splash and are the premiere power of the 616, who would they be?

I'll also ask if somebody can direct me to the newspaper Sherlock Holmes comic strips? The ones that had Holmes out to catch a villain who preyed on filthy, penniless rent boys ("So, you know Holmes, try to wear some nicer clothes than you usually do"). It ended with him knocking over a bowl of oranges. Ring any bells?
