Super Girl First Issues From Marvel

You forgot Shanna the She-Devil! I fact, you should do a Shanna post - Those Frank Cho issues are SWEET!

Ah, the 70's -- when all of our female superheroes were just derivative knock-offs of the male heroes. NOW they just REPLACE them outright. Marvel calls this "progress." I call it lazy and unimaginative.

Well, the Cat was kinda original, although there are some parallels to Batman and DD. Then they turned her into Tigra. I really like the character so I was pretty happy when they decided to bring Patsy Walker (!) into the Marvel Universe and she ultimately donned the costume to become HellCat.

Did Shanna have a number one issue like these because if she does I will add her. I didn't know if that was the case.

Yes, she did. She made it to issue no. 5, I think before being cancelled and the storyline ended up being finished in Daredevil.
