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.

There are a ton of Marvel's all-ages comics free to read online at the Marvel digital site if you want to check them out. (Or your niece could even read them there if she doesn't mind reading comics on the computer.) They've got X-Men First Class #1-16 uploaded there, plus a bunch of the Gurihiru Power Pack stories and Marvel Aventures titles. You need Flash player to read the comics, but the load times are usually pretty reasonable.

(In fact, wow, I didn't realise how much stuff they had up there. There goes the rest of my evening...)
