Marvelous Marvel Ladies Month was hosted on Tumblr during August 1-31 2013 as an Appreciation Week event. Ladies of the MCU hosted a MCU Ladies Week February 9-15 2015 [1].

Characters

Popular characters include many of the characters that have an animated or live-action counterpart, such as Jean Grey, Sue Storm, Ororo Monroe, Rogue, and Kitty Pryde.

The MCU fandom really influenced the popularity of some characters - Natasha Romanov, Pepper Potts, Peggy Carter, and Darcy Lewis all became fandom favorites. With the release of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gained a few new female characters - Skye, Jemma Simmons and Melinda May, which parts of the fandom embraced. Although fairly popular before their first appearance in the universe, Sharon Carter and Bobbi Morse's interest increased. The Agent Carter fandom embraced Peggy already but also made Angie Martinelli and Dottie Underwood quite popular. Gamora, Sif, Jane Foster, Scarlet Witch, and Betty Ross are also quite common in fanworks. Ant-Man's film release brought a boost of interest in The Wasp - both versions: Hope van Dyne and Janet van Dyne, along with Cassie Lang. The characters Jessica Jones and Patsy Walker grew in popularity in fanworks with the release of Jessica Jones TV series in November 2015.

X-Men's fandom has always had a lot of popular female characters - such as Jean Grey, Ororo Monroe, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost, and Mystique.

Spider-Man's fandom often brings in Mary Jane Watson, Felicia Hardy, and Gwen Stacy.

Other comic book characters that have yet gotten an animated or live-action counterpart that is still quite popular include Kate Bishop, Carol Danvers, She-Hulk, and Jessica Drew.
