Alan Davis Women of Marvel Cover

A couple of months ago, Marvel published a special Women of Marvel magazine with over 100 pages of content devoted to super-heroines.  There were two Alan Davis covers, which are joined here (thanks to the scanner who gave this to me).

Women of Marvel covers by Alan Davis

This cover has the classic Marvel gals, who I can all name, but one!  Let's go, from left to right:
  1. Golden Age Black Widow
  2. Miss America
  3. Scarlet Witch
  4. Ms. Marvel
  5. Invisible Woman
  6. Medusa
  7. Phoenix
  8. Black Cat
  9. Mary Jane Watson
  10. Gwen Stacy
  11. Storm (in her 80s punk biker chick mohawk outfit, yowza!)
  12. Black Widow
  13. Spider-Woman
  14. Wasp
  15. Elektra
  16. She-Hulk
Now in the very center you have:
17. Kitty Pryde
18. Who the heck is the girl next to Kitty? With the giant mouse hat and holding a phone?  Please leave a comment if you know.

It constantly blows my mind that Spider-Woman is now a major character.  There are two characters that I wish had been featured here: Clea and Valkyrie. 

I've been on an Alan Davis kick lately--I think this man's never lost his magic touch.  I've recently revisited JLA: The Nail, Fantastic Four: The End, and the first issue of Avengers Finale.  Nuff Said!

Update: Comments from my old MT blog...


#18 is Molly Hayes, aka Princess Powerful of Runaways.
That wee gal is Molly from "the Runaways." The title was canceled last year but if you get the chance I highly recommend reading the trades. Very good stuff.
Thanks to everyone who identified Molly! I read the entire run by Brian K Vaughan and it was indeed an excellent series. Since the Runaways haven't been around, I completely forgot about Molly.
i was gonna say Molly too, without actually knowing her name was Molly..lulz. almost seems outta place among all the well established, or long running characters. what shes wearing doesnt even identify her well (except that its childish/cute). what tipped me off so easily, was her feature on the X-Mens Heroic Age one-shot cover. she had similar headwear there too.
I think it might be illyana rasputan ( hope i spelled it right) she was Magik is i remeber
