Patsy Walker, better known as Hellcat, has been around longer than the majority of other Marvel characters, but no one, lately, has really given her a chance at going solo. Sure, she did have a brief miniseries after Marvel's Civil War, and she appeared in She-Hulk, and will appear in the upcoming Marvel's Jessica Jones series on Netflix, but beyond that she's been mostly absent.
Patsy Walker as a character has been around since 1944. That's longer than Iron Man, The Hulk, or the Fantastic Four. Now sure, she wasn't a superhero yet, but she does have that history. When she was first introduced in 1944's Miss America #2, Patsy (Trish) Walker was a teen-romance comic character, not all that different from what Archie had going on in Archie Comics with Betty and Veronica during the same time period.
Patsy made the jump from teen romance to superhero in the early 1970s, where after a few adventures with The Avengers, she took on her own superhero identity as Hellcat. Over time she has several dark adventures, including literally dying, and going to hell and back.
What I would like to see from a Hellcat comic is something that successfully blends the tone of her early comics, and her superhero tales. I hate to compare it to something, but I envision something similar to DC Comic's Batwoman stories, written by Greg Rucka. In fact, if they could get Rucka to write it, which is a long shot, that would be awesome . Either way, I'm curious to see how this turns out. Does Hellcat deserve her own series? Hell yeah!
