All Female Avengers Book-Would You Buy It?


In the current Marvel Universe there are 3 teams that claim the title Avengers.  
 
Secret Avengers: 
Nova 
Steve Rogers 
Beast 
Moon Knight 
Ant Man 
Valkyrie 
Black Widow 
 
New Avengers: 
Luke Cage 
Iron Fist 
Ms Marvel 
Jessica Jones 
Thing 
Wolverine 
Spider Man 
Dr. Strange  
Hawkeye 
Mockingbird
 
Avengers: 
Iron Man 
Thor 
Captain America (Bucky) 
Wolverine 
Spider-Man 
Hawkeye 
Noh-Varr 
Spider-Woman
 
I probably missed a character or 2. But according to my count above the current total roster is at around 24 members with only 6 being of the female persuasion. This brings me to my point. Would you buy an ongoing Avengers book if it was only a group of female super heroines? Even if you didn't use any of the females listed above you could still have a crop of currently unused female characters to choose from.  
 
Long time strong female characters such as She-Hulk, Photon, Sersi, Tigra, Crystal, Sharon Ventura and Firestar would all make great Avengers in my mind. You could even use some females such as Hellcat, Firebird or Lionheart that haven't been seen in the pages of a Marvel book in ages. Put them as a team under the guidance of someone like Sharon Carter, Maria Hill or Victoria Hand and you could be on to something.  
 
Any thoughts?

I would if it was serious and in continuity.

Same here. I wouldn't want it to be something silly like She-Hulk's book was. Get a strong female writer and let her do it along the lines of DC's Birds of Prey and I think you'd definitely be on to something. Surely, Gail Simone isn't the only talented female writer wandering the Earth.

I agree.

No.
 
But I am all for more girls on the teams I love Hell cat, Photon and Tigra,

  Do we really need more Avengers books?  It's really annoying seeing all of these books, all 5 of them!  And two of them have shared characters.  If they even consider this book a possibility, please, for the love of god, don't call it "Female Avengers".

My apologies good sir. That was not directed towards you in any way, shape or form. Just Marvel in general...

Agreed. Lady Liberators is cheesy as heck so I wouldn't want it used either.

....maybe if it was interesting and it showed nudity...

Posted by Gambit1024

I wouldn't. For some reason, books staring all female characters are boring to me. I could never get into Birds of Prey.

I'm sure Marvel would go for that. ~sarcasm alert~

It would depend on the line up. I would buy a Lady Liberators book though. That line up is amazing!
 

 They are bringing everything including the bathroom sink!

That is a kickass team. I'm glad Valkyrie got a spot in Secret Avengers.

Me too. I'm really surprised they haven't tried to give the Lady Liberators a mini series at least.

They should give them a test run to see how it sells. I'd buy it. I like the art in your scan too.

A female Avengers book is unnecessary at this point.If you want an all female team.

That art isn't bad. They all seemed a little bulky though, which is probably since it came from a Hulk comic book.

Would you buy one if it was simply an all female team w/interesting characters?

If it's going to be written well.Marvel Divas had some of my favorite female characters in it and it was pretty bad.

Ms. Marvel 
Scarlett Witch 
She-Hulk 
Black Widow 
Crystal 
Tigra 
Songbird 
Firestar 
....there's a LOT of story there

Hell yeah, I'd check it out.  I agree it would need a strong writer (no matter which gender) and for me an artist like Ed Benes, Frank Cho, Mike Deodato, Jr., Alan Davis or Marc Silvestri.

 
My line-up would be: 
 
Thundra 
Sersi 
Black Widow 
Ms. Marvel 
Kismet 
Tigra 
Namorita 
Satana

You know what? I probably would be interested in an all-female Avengers team. I absolutely love Birds of Prey so an all-female Avengers team, with the right members and the right creative team would definitely be on my pull list. I'm not an expert on MU, but I would expect each female member to bring something unique to the table. Though I would probably omit She-Hulk from the team. I don't know why, just because. And no cheesecake. That's not why I would buy the book, I want a strong story. If all I wanted were sexy-drawn chicks, I can pick up something by Zenescope.

That's actually a good title.
Posted by Mediant

If it had a good artist and writer, sure.

@Jake Fury: lol!
Posted by Duncan

All female avengers team would be awesome. Just don't call it lady avengers or something.

Posted by Night Thrasher

Definitely with the right writer and artist. Frank Cho, Arthur Adams, Mariah Benes, Ed Benes would definitely have to be in consideration for this type of book.
