    Do you mean American Dream? She's part of Defalco's M2 continuity (which I'm rather enjoying, hehe). It's spun off a What-If, and is pretty much the Marvel universe if the characters were as old as they -actually- are in terms of their first issue and now.

    No the current Captain America is the original Bucky(In a shiny new uniform). He's currently fighting the 2nd or is it 3rd? 1950's cap. The original Captain America (Steve Rogers) is dead. Bucky(Then Winter Solider) killed the 1950's partner, Bucky II(later Nomad) so the 1950's cap is out for revenge. He's being run by the Red skull and Doctor Faustis. The Red Skull is currently inhabiting Alexander Lukin(due to a cosmic cube incident) And Rick Jones (former Bucky) is running around calling himself A-Bomb.(In the Hulk comic) I left a bunch of stuff out like caps ex girlfriend mind controlled into killing him and now carrying his love child only to be stabbed in the stomach by the Red Skull's daughter.

    This is the soap opera that is Captain America. And if you read the issues it actually makes sense. Brubaker is one of the better Marvel writers.

    Have you even read them? Because Captain America is a great book right now. They haven't lost their touch at all. In fact, as Tekkaman said, Brubaker is an exceptional writer.

    Sounds like you are just hearing about the idea of something and calling it bad, rather than actually reading it.

    Well while I like cap, the rest of the marvel universe(with afew other title exceptions) Has been doing nothing but being in one various big crossovers for 5 or 6 years now with no time given to redevelop a status quo. I'd rather they take a year or two off and have more titles handled like cap's than another friggin crossover. I keep dropping Marvel titles because I just don't care about crossovers any more.

    They'll copy Liefield and have the scarlet witch turn all the men into women and have another crossover drawn by frank cho.

    Wolverine...pms...I've never actually thought of what a real Wolverine would be like and shudddered until now...
    I could actually see a cover for this with a female wolverine clawing at everyone, spit flying, and of course half the cover in one solid color with the words "That Time of the Month: A Marvel Crossovers Event." Also, Spiderman reveals his identity but nobody recognizes him as a girl.

    But at least with She-Hulk, Bruce used his blood to save her. And she been around for a while now.

    Nocturne, she was part of the Exiles crew and she's the daughter of Nightcrawler.

    Spider-Girl, who's part of the M2 Line, is the daughter of Peter Parker.

    X-23 is a clone of Wolverine.

    Miss Sinister, i'm thinking is Mr. Sinister...but jumped into a female body...which i'm thinking he's like Apocalypse now, body jumpers....LAME for both.

    There's also the new (old now) female Scorpion.

    Don't know the story about Lady Bullseye and Kraven the Hunter. I dont read Daredevil or Spider-Man



    we haven't seen it the other way around yet, where they original was the female and the new one is the male....oh wait, there was, The Grey King or whatever his name was during the Cerebro/Other X-Men storyline

    I have no problem putting hot women into costumes based on male characters ^_~

    And I have to say, as weird as stuff like X-23 is, it's nothing compared to some of the really weird shit Marvel (and DC for that matter) have been pulling over the last couple of years.
