Taking this quiz just now I was thinking about doing a "name the social justice warrior version of this hero" quiz... aka... for Tony Stark the answer would be RiRi Williams, for Peter Parker the answer would be either Miles Morales or Gwen Stacy, for Steve Rogers the answer would be Sam Wilson... and so on. Sure hope this era of Marvel is over now that Axel Alonso got canned.

On the surface level, the concept of a lot of those characters who are "female or minority version of (established character)" may seem cynical, but whether they knew what they were doing or they just backed into it, more often than not those characters have ended up being really good. They got good writers and brought in new perspectives to breathe some new life into the mythos of older characters. Kate Bishop, Laura Kinney, and Miles Morales are some of my favorite characters in comics. Besides, doing knock-off versions of existing characters is one of the oldest tricks in comics, so this is just a more sophisticated version of something that has been going on for decades.

I always think of Jean Grey as Jean Grey. Took awhile to get it.

Level 81
Jan 7, 2018
She hasn't been called Marvel Girl for a very long time, and calling her Phoenix isn't really correct. The Phoenix Force was an alien entity that possessed Jean Grey- not Jean Grey. Except in the movies where it was written as a split personality of Jean Grey.

To be fair, DC's Captain Marvel was around long before Marvel's was. He was originally created in the early 1940s by Fawcett Comics, which shut down in the early '50s due to declining sales of comics overall and a lawsuit from DC. The trademark on the character lapsed, so Marvel Comics made their own "Captain Marvel" comic in 1967. DC then licensed the Fawcett Captain Marvel in the early '70s and published new comics, but since Marvel now held the trademark DC had to title the comic something else, so they went with the character's magic word: "Shazam!" This led to decades of confusion where people thought the character's name was "Shazam."

DC eventually bought the character outright in the '90s, and when they rebooted everything for the New 52 back in 2011 they basically said "Screw it, everyone's calling him that anyway" and officially renamed the character "Shazam," dropping the name "Captain Marvel " entirely.

Kara Danvers also technically predates Carol Danvers, sorta. Supergirl debuted in 1959 and Carol first appeared in 1968. However, Supergirl's secret identity was Linda Danvers, while her Kryptonian name was Kara Zor-El. So Supergirl being "Kara" and "Danvers" predates Carol Danvers, but it was the 2015 Supergirl TV show that decided to combine the two names into "Kara Danvers."

You mixed up the names of Supergirl and Captain Marvel, Kara Zor-el is Supergirl while Carol Danvers is Captain Marvel
+1
Level 68
Dec 9, 2020
I got mixed up on this too. Carol Danvers is Captain Marvel (albeit a different one than Billy Batson), and Supergirl was born Kara Zor-el, though her adoptive parents are the Danvers, and she is also known as Kara Danvers. Quite confusing.
+1

Yes, but no. Supergirl's Kryptonian name is Kara Zor-El, and her longtime secret identity was Linda Danvers, but the 2015 TV show decided to let her keep her real first name as part of her secret identity, and so combined the two into "Kara Danvers." The change got incorporated into the comics during DC Rebirth in 2016, so Supergirl's secret identity is Kara Danvers now.

Thought that Kara Danvers was Captain Marvel (MCU) for a second there...
