Default Chubby female comic book character

Now that Captain America and the film version of the Human Torch are African American, and the golden age Green Lantern is gay wouldn't this be an appropriate time to have an already established female comic book character a BBW?

I don't know who I would choose, they're are numerous choices but it would be a positive message whether it's Lois Lane or Mary Jane Watson that beauty and brains shouldn't be defined by a dress size.

I'm not a big comic book guy, but I see what you're saying. I think we're more likely to see a Disney movie go that route first, though I won't hold my breath for it. This lovely young lady has started a petition for a plus-size princess:

For a long time, the DC character Amanda Waller was almost SSBBW in size. A big badass woman who led the Suicide Squad by sheer force of personality. Now, since the latest DC universe reboot, she's yet another generic comic book woman in shape. Big disappointment.

Valiant Comics currently publishes "Faith," featuring a flying character code-named Zephyr, from the super-team 'Harbinger.' She is around (I am guessing, based on her appearance) 250 pounds or so.

My friend Drew Edwards is also publishing 'Lucy Chaplin, Science Starlet' soon from Halloween Man comics, and I will also be self-publishing comics and coloring books featuring plus-sized characters in the near future.

I would like to see Wonder Woman as a BBW or SSBBW.
