Reply Subj: My instinct is to go PM with her

Captain Britain was borderline PM...Wonder Man level...she proved able to match him head to head with flight, strength, and durability and was more powerful...that alone puts her at least debatably PM.

She was able to utilize the Phoenix force through copying Rachel...if you can copy herald level power, does that not make you a herald level absorber?

Under her own power, she was able to drain the Earth's power to grow to the point where she could fight Galactus effectively (though she was killing the Earth in doing so)...does that not imply at least herald level of power?

Effectively, she really didn't function at a high level, but as far as output goes, she did show the capacity to eclipse what most any PM is capable of, and she showed greater versatility than almost anyone...comparable to any Eternal.

> She is quite powerful, and has a great deal of abilities but I dont see her offense being able to break a solid heralds duribility and I don't think she's durable enough to take a sustained beating from herald level attacks. She could compete but the fight would be how long can she last and how badly can she hurt him before she lost rather than wondering who would win. Clear underdog, along the lines of Ironman or the Invisible Woman
