    > Well, it's hard to pull off calling yourself "Grimm" while you're blowing bubble gum. Seriously though, she never used "Sister Grimm" very long, anyway. The Runaways really weren't about codenames.
    Oh. Still gotta/wanna read Vaughn's Runaways original run. Went by the Handbook ID. It's weird in a superhero codename world now that they either ditch the secret identity - or copy another hero's name.

Runaways never really were superheroes. They were just kids trying to live good lives away from their evil parents, which is why they all pretty much ditched any codenames quickly-- for the most part, Molly was Molly, Karolina was Karolina, etc., not Power Princess, Lucy in the Sky, etc.

And really codenames have been increasingly passe since the 90s. If you have no life to keep separate, there's no real need for them. Nico has no life to keep separate. Frankly, I think this whole team should drop their codenames-- just be Jen, Carol, Ali, Nico, well... Medusa is her name.

    > I really don't like that picture for any of the women. Carol and Jen look hideous, as well. And they all seem to have the same chins and necks. But really Bendis and his editor should have been fired for giving Ali that look, I agree.
    Well, to clarify about Carol and Jen - the reaction was more that this pic of 'em http://www.comicboards.com/php/image.php?msg=avengers-2015092402252782&att=1.jpg&fullsize=yes was so much greater than http://i.imgur.com/Or2mRwo.jpg. It's like classic Red Tornado always looked terrible but when Perez drew him he looked great. Plus, regarding Cpt.Marvel's hair - still don't like the new, unexplained, style if it means her magic helmet remains connected to it - or if they accentuate a mohawk in it.

My problem with the picture is that the artist tends to draw his women looking rather emaciated (sickly) around the neck area, which looks really bad on Carol and Jen, especially (Ali too, who is looking almost like some kind of heroin junkie to me with that hair).

Don't agree about Red Tornado always looking terrible, either. ;-p (he's one of the few DC characters I like)

    > Hopefully [Singularity] becomes more than a plot device.
    Yeah. Will she be more than just a female Nightcrawler, hmmm...?

Hey, "female Nightcrawler" would be great. I just don't want her to be their transport with a cute face.
