Previous Post

my main point was that if you put a strong, capable female like Mystique beside a strong and equally capable male peer, more often than not people would be more afraid of the male version. You do have good points about strong female characters (Dark Phoenix being the best example), but you have to face the truth, there is a difference in perception between a female charcter and a male character when stacked together. For every "menacing" female character, there are probably 2 or 3 male ones that would be equal or more. For every Dark Phoenix there is a Thanos and a Darkseid, for every Elektra there is a Bullseye or Deathstroke.

if you put Mystique in a room of MU civilians, I'm sure people would be terrified, but if you put Mystique AND Sabertooth in a room together, people would be more terrified of Sabertooth. It doesn't even have to be Sabertooth.. you can replace him with Post, Harvest, Stryfe.. etc. and they would have a more menacing prescence to people.

Youre still missing the entire point.

The *POINT* is that woman, just like a man, *CAN* be menacing.

And, to be honest, I think this new female Ultron looks scarier than the original.
