Oh well ! the utimate relatable average joe, especially for thanatophobics like me... She's one of the most upbeat & optimistic characters in all comics . I know how most comic buffs love to belittle her , but I'll say this out loud : She is the most sympathetic and empathetic character I've ever read about in Marvel & it's nearly impossible not to feel for her . . She's THE proof that relatability to a character knows no gender .
I think she's one of the few xmen characters that actually has a personality. I liked the fact she wasn't a super hero, just a girl with a super power trying to survive. I think that's what's so relatable.
