Superhero Week-Mayday Parker (Spider-Girl)
So what do I love so much about this web-slinging heroine? First off, she's funny like her old man. Second, she shares the relateableness of her father, while adding to it (for me) in that she doesn't really have a tragic backstory, she's a hero because it's the right thing to do. Third, she and her stuff in high school are good enough for me to care about what happens there, with specific story arcs being amazing. The only problem I have is that sometimes the art is a bit...wonky. But I'm not that into art, so I rarely notice it. Please go out and get the (exceedingly rare) trade paperbacks, and read this about this spectacular heroine!
