Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
All December long, I will be doing daily installments of Comic Theme Time. Comic Theme Time is a twist on the idea of a “Top Five” list. Instead of me stating a topic and then listing my top five choices in that topic, I’m giving you the topic and letting you go wild with examples that you think fit the theme.
Today’s topic is “What do you think is the best example of a female superhero/supervillain adopting the name of a male superhero/supervillain?”
Read on to see what I’m looking for specifically, along with some examples to get you started…
Monica Rambeau was not particularly aware of the Kree Captain Marvel when she adopted the name during the 1980s, but she wore it well for many years…

Yellowjacket made a surprisingly good superhero until she was unceremoniously killed off during the Crossing storyline in the Avengers…
What are some other good examples?
