Hey, all.

So, I was babysitting my nieces and nephews the other day. My 9-year-old niece Bella has always liked superheroes. She loved watching B:TAS and the Gotham Girls web toons and gravitated towards Babs and Ivy.

However, when she was perusing through my comics, I realized that I didn't own a single thing that she could read. She was intrigued by the premise of Birds of Prey, but the art and the costumes are way too inappropriate. She thought Kitty Pryde was cool, but Astonishing X-Men also includes sex scenes and Emma Frost.

Do any of you know any comic series that would be appropriate for her? I was thinking that Batgirl: Year One would be safe enough, and stuff in the vain of Colleen Coover's work on X-Men: First Class would be ideal as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

She forgets that she has it of course.

Marvel Adventures, for sure. Jeff Smith's Shazam!: The Monster Society of Evil and it's follow-up series, Billy Batson and the Power of Shazam! The newer run on Power Pack doubles as kid friendly and super fun. Thor: The Mighty Avenger is great and I've heard good things about Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade.


Actually, now that I think about it, X-men: First Class may be a good book too, not just the Colleen Coover bits. (Though those are awesome.)

Also Wolverine: First Class, which despite the title is really a Kitty Pryde book with a lot of Wolverine. It's Kitty back when she first started with the X-Men, only modernized. (But she still loves Dazzler!)
