Not true.
1. Katniss doesn't get into many fights, they are all very short, and she doesn't win any on her own, she is saved more often than not, and her ultimate victory is not achieved through combat at all.
2. Katniss has a very angry unheroic attitude, and only deals with people because she's forced to.
3. Katniss is driven entirely by caring for her closest friends, her sister, the little girl that died, eventually Peetah. She could give a flip about the greater good, that's what makes her interesting.

The most compelling things about Katniss are in complete contrast with the superhero genre. The only thing she has in common with any female superhero is two x chromosomes. And in mystique's case, the same actress.
