    [​IMG]She is one of the most powerful heroines in the Marve Universe. She has the ability to turn herself into any form of energy from the electromagnetic spectrum: Light, Various forms of raditation (Gamma Rays, Cosmic Ray,etc...),Microwaves, Radio wave, ultra-violet rays, etc.... She can, in her light form, travel at the speed of light and/or turn herself into a focused laser beam. She can fire off energy blast of various strength, and can absorb various forms of energy. If you think about it, she has the capability to take out the Hulk by herself ( a laser beam thru his eye and into his brain, instant lobotomy). Under the guidance of former Avengers's writer, and her creator, Roger Stern, she became a member of that team, and with the confidence shown her by Captain America, came to lead the team, standing up to such head-strong members such as Hercules, Namor, and Thor.

    Unfortunately, over the past few year, she has been under used, and under appreciated. A victim of comic book companies creating a powerful character, especially a power minority character who is not a stereotype, and not know what to do with them. I have to give Marvel credit. In the past few years, they have given their minority character the spotlight: Luke Cage in the Avengers/Pulse/Alias/Daredevil, The Black Panther back in his own book again, A new White Tiger, Patriot, Hulkling and Wicca of Young Avengers, and let's not forget Storm and Bishop in X-men.

    And now, Mr. Ellis is bring back one of my favorites, Miss Monica Rambeau aka Captain Marvel aka Photon aka Pulsar, and now Photon again. I know the book she's in, NEXTWAVE, is suppose to be a quirkly book, but here's hoping that Monica is treated well within it's pages, and that Mr. Ellis explores all aspects of her abilities and personality.[​IMG]

    i hate her costume (kind of plain) but she's a character with potential. but, if there's ever a movie, i'd suggest Rosario Dawson for Monica.

    p.s. her name is 'Pulsar' now. :)

    I think Gina Torres from Firefly would be a pretty good choice, myself.

    Was she even mentioned in any of those recent Marvel handbooks? Either way her powers are freakin awsome and I hope she gets some much deserved exposure.

    OMG, a Photon thread!!

    I LOVE Monica Rambeau, she´s my favorite Avenger of all times.

    - Hey, Muse, how come I never made a Photon drawing?
    - Duh! You were too busy drooling at Storm, remember?
    - Ew! Forget her, she´s into Beastiality now.
