    Yes, she was definitely talking about Domino, especially reading the replies.

    But, I don't think it's a bad idea for Marvel to do something in the vein of a Birds of Prey title. Marvel only puts out a street-level/noir-tinged team book every once in a while. It's a niche that could stand to be filled. And if DC can turn their iconic Golden Age sidekick into a superspy with a flirty female spy partner, there's not much shame in Marvel borrowing a pitch from DC.

    Well, none of the past attempts are that similar to BoP. Fearless Defenders, Adjectiveless X-Men 2012, and A-Force don't have the same kind of approach as BoP. Majorie Liu's Liberators pitch seemed a lot closer tonally.

    At the very least, it's a little perplexing that Marvel hasn't put out some kind of spy team with all of the Marvel lady superspies, like that quoted tweet was saying. The gender ratio of the big espionage characters at Marvel is pretty skewed in favor of the women. Maybe they're concerned about being able to make the different characters stand out from each other in how they approach things, but most decent writers have been able to do that already.

    Yeah, one of the comments suggests Spider-Woman, Black Widow, Mockingbird and Red Widow.

    Someone answered with a suggestion of Spider-Girl, as Anya worked with Jessica and Natasha in Avengers Assemble's last few issues (the last page of that series was Anya dancing to the EMH theme tune which she had on her phone!).

    Unstoppable Wasp has links to both Nat (both from Red Room, plus half the Champions team was with Nat in Secret Empire) and Bobbi (her mentor with GIRL), so she'd fit in such a team too (at one point - Champions 18-21, Avengers 675-690 - she was juggling Champions, Avengers, and GIRL, but the Avengers broke up soon after). She wouldn't be the only teen, as Red Widow is young too.

    I'd actually consider Invisible Woman for a spy team too, she was with SHIELD just before Secret Wars.

    Yeah, it really sounds like she was talking about Domino. I find it strange they haven't tried a relaunch for A-Force, though. It's probably the most popular concept they've created for an all-female team, to the point where it's the name that keeps popping up whenever people discuss the possibility of an all-female Marvel movie. And, as far as I know, the first ongoing book wasn't cancelled because of sales, so it's not like it was a failure.

    Does Marvel have to make an attempt to copy every DC concept and vice versa? If they do this, it should only because they have a good idea for the book, not because DC has an all-woman superhero team.

    We already had The Fearless Defenders and y'all didn't buy it.

    So now it's All-New Heroes for Hire starring Jessica Drew, Domino and Mockingbird, baby.

    Yeah, it was cancelled because of the events of Civil War II and IVX. Those two events close together each took out a team member. If the series had continued any longer it would've been minus the comatose She-Hulk, and after the next arc they would've lost Medusa as well, who went off-world in Royals. Nico Minoru wouldn't have lasted much longer either, due to the revival of the Runaways book. I've always thought they should've just changed the roster.

    Marvel could have easily changed the roster to include any number of characters, Jessica Drew, Mockingbird, Spider-girl, Wasp...there was so much potential for this book that Marvel just squandered as it often does with it's female characters.

    Both of the Wasps were already on Avengers teams at the time (Nadia on Waid's, Janet on Uncanny), but the others you mention were certainly candidates, since Jessica's book didn't last much longer, Mock's was cancelled with CWII like A-Force was, and Anya's been in limbo since the cancellation of Web Warriors at around that time (both she and Jess are just about to come out of it thanks to Spider-Geddon).

    I was being sarcastic, 'cause DC and Marvel always copy each other shamlessly, not because they have a good idea or anything. They just both must be exactly the same, no less, no more. lol This is how it is. Marvel tries to have an all-female cast of hero group ever since the success of Birds of Prey, and finally they hired Gail, who made that work for DC with Bird of Prey. DC is as determint of having what Marvel has as well. They shamelessly steal from each other and other places.

    So i always believe in and support stealing from them btw. lol
