Hmm. I'd say Skunk Girl's big problem would be her name. When you think
of a cat you might think of 'sex kitten' or playful or innocent or
something. When you think skunk you think very bad smells. Not very
sexy or adorable.
Of course I don't think there will ever be an acceptable substitute for
Panta. Part of what made her great was her history (a member of the
Net.Patrol, the Death of Lost Cause Boy, her history with the Preacher).
Plus Hubert wrote about her from 92 to 99 so they're are quite a bit of
stories about her. Any substitute would probably have to be usable without
Sing-Along Lass used to be naively sweet (well at least before Jesse Willey
started writing her).
Started out writing a story about a Panta ripoff and decided it wasn't a
good idea, so I've changed a number of things about it (right now the
character makes fanboys drool and that's about it). Don't know when I'll
Some characters just capture people's imaginations and some don't.
I could create a character called Greatest-LNH-Villain-Ever
Man-Robot-Gorilla, but there's no way I could possibly convince people to
embrace such a character as the greatest LNH Villain. Either they do or
they don't. Same thing with any Panta ripoff.
