If you want spinoff movies -- and Marvel knows that every addition to the film franchise is at least $100 million, so they really do -- the X-Men have more interesting characters than every soap opera in history fighting to the death inside a nuclear reactor. And the most moviegenic is Hisako "Armor" Ichiki. Armor is a badass girl with a robot suit made entirely of psychic special effects. There is no nerd money that combination of niches wouldn't earn.
When she dresses in pink, it's to punch your face in.
Did we mention it can scale in size, making Armor the only person who can think "Pacific Rim is awesome" so hard that it actually happens?
Hisako doesn't take no drift from nobody.
An awesome female lead and an ability that kicks ass when it's active, but doesn't render her permanently immune from harm (it's hard to build tension when the hero's only power is "can't actually be killed," Logan). As a teenage girl who could stomp the sharpened weasel into two-dimensionality, she seems specifically written to take the piss out of Wolverine. And he's had two tries already.
When she flicks a V, it stands for "Very Badly Wounded."
