It's terrible to say, but I feel she was only written well in books that WEREN'T her own series. She was great in that issue of Uncanny with Wolverine, pretty awesome in the Negative Zone arc w/ Cap and Namor and Gillen freaking NAILED HER PERFECTLY in Regenesis/Gen Hope #12. Which is frustrating as all hell, considering that the writers of those stories (Gillen and Asmus) were the people writing her own series. It just doesn't make sense to me. It's like there's almost an editorial mandate for Hope to be written terribly in her own book and pretty cool everywhere else.
Can we get Swierczynski back on her, please?
