She may have started out like spinoff of a male superhero, but I don't see any similarities between them..

I agree on the fact she may have started out as a spin-off of a male super hero. But she has evolved past that to the fact there alot of people see her in her own light and dont compare her to them. Buti like AtPhantom "I don't see any similarities between them.." is agreeable in my opioin.

I think Binary was a different character for sure.

Ms Marvel is Marvel comic's Wonder Woman. Being that they are trying to make her into the premeir female character of marvel.

I don't think Marvel has a premier female character anymore then they have a premier male character. I believe Marvel's having her lead the Mighty Avengers because it makes sense, and her solo series kicks ass and sells quite nicely, so there's no reason for her not to have one.

Ms.Marvel is nothing like Supergirl.

MS. MARVEL
Ms. Marvel is her own unique character.  There are no simularities between her any other Superheroine personality-wise.

No. I'm pretty sure she isn't.

The only similarities, are the fact that both women are blond (which isn't isn't exactly a distinguishing feature, among female heroes) and that Carol's last name is "Danvers" (a name used by the original Supergirl, after she was adopted by the pre-crisis Danvers family (before that, she was Linda Lee). And the 90's Supergirl). Carol wasn't even a heroine (nor empowered), until almost a decade after her introduction. So, no. Carol's not Marvel's Supergirl (as she was originally neither a hero, nor villain).

No way on Earth! Ms.Marvel and Supergirl are two entirely different characters!

She is more like the female version of batman only with powers IMO.

Marketing-wise I think Marvel has, since Ms. Marvel's inception, always desired for Ms. Marvel to become their preeminent superheroine in much the same way Wonder Woman is DC's.  Personally, with her powers, looks, feminist views and tough-girl 'tude, I've always thought Ms. Marvel most closely resembled Power Girl - not Supergirl.

Absolutely not.

I guess at first she was Captain Mar-Vell's Supergirl type character, but she's evolved way passed that. I'd define her as the woman icon of Marvel.

They kind of put her in the dumps though after Rogue stole her powers. And for a while they were pushing her to become their leading female hero, but they've slowed down with that recently.

To be honest, she's come such a long way as a character that it wouldn't be to hard to just retcon Capt. Marvel out of her origin (which by the way I think is in need of a good modern day retelling). I mean most people bring up the fact that "she's a female Captain Mar-Vell" but like everyone has stated in this thread, Carol has grown far pass anything to him and has become her own character, and she has become one of Marvel's top superheroine's.

ms.marvel is a woman in charge

supergirl still has a long way to go before she's on ms.marvel's level in terms of maturity

They can absolutely retcon that out, but I don't think that's necessary. That story definitely has to be retold though... I'd read it, anyway.

Yes, Marvel did push her off to the side for quite some time before they realized what they had and restored her to her true 'Ms. Marvel' persona, getting away from all the Binary, Warbird or even plain-old-Carol b.s. 

 

If you don't think Marvel is still promoting her as their number one heroine, which character do you think they are promoting (if any)?

@PowerHerc: Currently she's only on the New Avengers, and she's not even the leader. She could be (and probably should be) because Luke Cage is already leader of the Thunderbolts. Ms. Marvel also doesn't have a starring role in any other popular media. Emma Frost is being pushed a bit more because she makes an appearance in just about all of the X-books, and has had major roles in both of the newest X-Men TV shows. She also has a big role X-Men First Class.

Emma isn't really the hero type though, so they should be pushing Ms. Marvel instead.
