The mods get spammed for this one all the time, I hesitate to suggest spamming them, but most of the veterans here at CV barely know who we follow anymore, so out of the mods you can probably ask nicely and one would follow you. I got mine the hard way though. In terms of the reasoning behind this though, it is meant to be something special, like you have contributed enough to the site that you are considered worthy of their attention. I would suggest doing it that way, there are lots of ways to contribute around here - fan fic, blogs, reviews, rpg, battle boards. In any one of those there is a mod paying attention to people and someone putting in superior content will get a follow.
@The Poet: Exactly the problem I anticipated, already gone are versions of the Question, Captain Marvel and Blue Beetle. Can I put in my company picks now?
Charlton/Fawcett Mary Marvel - One of the first major female superheroes, long and detailed publication history Captain Marvel Junior - There was kind of a very unoriginal theme going in Fawcett, Freddy still deserves his due here Captain Atom - Probably the best known Charlton transplant to DC Vic Sage (The Question) - Second most popular Charlton transplant to DC, inspired Rorschach in the Watchmen Nightshade - Of lesser importance, but still served for a few years as a key member of the Suicide Squad after being in DC, fairly popular while at Charlton
Also considered was Black Adam, as he has spent some time as an anti-hero, but I decided against. Not considered was Uncle Marvel.
Seeing as I am out of sequence I can save my wildcards for later?
Part of it is making her more visually appealing I am sure, but comics are also often following suit from movies and for me she looks a lot like a young Angela Bassett. I think the movie deserves some credit for the transformation as well.
Either you guys are trying to be funny in which case I don't get it, or you are being serious in which case I don't see how anything I wrote was feminist, and being called a feminist is not as much an insult as you think it is, by the way.
