The chart provided on powers was way different than my preferences. It's totally wrapped up in traditional gender roles. 

Why can't women be strong or tough (superstrength, invulnerability and stamina as male traits only?). 

Flight as a preference for females does work for me. I see flight and dance as related.  

Anyway, not surprised by the results for the general public, but there are a lot of us here who think superstrength, invulnerability and stamina are exciting female traits, even when when they exceed males. 

But then, we aren't your average comic fans.

Wow! A pretty telling story on gender inequality, huh.

The problem (and I say this a Comicvine occasional contributor) is that there is no consensus on what powers goes on the grid.
Does occasional power-stunt count?
Which version of the character a contributor has to consider?

It's just presented here as a data point for past works,    The future of superwomen is open to the imaginations of all contributors.
