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.

For legality, what happens when a plant-lady seductress gets hold of a gun:

She forgets that she has it of course.

- Batgirl: Year One
- The current Batgirl series
- Maaaybe Cass's Batgirl series, though Cass does have a pretty dark origin...
- Teen Titans: Year One
- Blue Beetle
- Supergirl: Adventures in the 8th Grade
- Teen Titans Go!
- DCAU comics
- Young Justice, the one linked to the current show, though PAD's might also be okay
- Marvel Adventures books
- Thor the Mighty Avenger
- X-Men: First Class
- Wolverine: First Class
- Possibly Young Avengers and Runaways, though they do touch some darker stuff there
- Power Pack
- I think the old New X-Men: Academy X stuff was okay for kid to read, prior to Kyle and Yost's run. Don't quote me on that, though.
- If you can track it down, I think Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld was a good series. It might be hard to find, though, what with it having been an 80s comic.
- They're not DC or Marvel but some of the BOOM! Studios stuff, like The Incredibles and Darkwing Duck, might work.

That's all that I can think of!
