Female superpowers survey, are you in? was created by naked.superpower
There's been great superhero surveys here earlier, thanks @Mynn!
And now I suggest a survey about superpowers, how they are related to each other and to different other settings. I invite you to take part.Are you in? :D 
You can take the survey here: forms.gle/cFkJ1FA5uF6tNZUX6

I'm going to share results here.

Better than nothing is very vague, I took it as slightly better than don't care
So most of my answers fell in the middle two areas
I think a 5 point scale would have served your survey better.
1 being dislike
3 being neutral
5 being most like.

Yes, agreed. I picked not to give 5 options cause they may not correlate well in different ppl. So, keeping a 4, now I would write "I like it" instead of "better than nothing". despise-0-like-adore.

But there's tens of people who have made it, I better keep it as it is.

If people like it, I will run something next in a while, and I will make a test group of a dozen people, in a more organized way. This time I gave it for several people to test, and it was very very helpful, but I think a dozen will catch most of the bugs.

Some good questions in there (but of course no love for wings ;) ) I made an entry. I look forward to some data at the end.

Done, although I doubt it would be of much use, since I'm much more into what one does with powers than the powers themselves.

I have to say, I agree with this.

Wings, I'm ambivalent. I can see for some that could be one of their things.  For me, I happen to like mid-old-school legion (well I like old school legion too) so I really like Dawnstar.  Not because she has wings, but because she's Dawnstar and was in a comic I liked.

Though I end up liking most super-strong female characters.  I had to think of one I didn't like, and eventually, I hit on one.  I didn't like it when Ms. Marvel (not that one, or the other one, Sharon Ventura) became a She-Thing.  It's not simply the "from another character".  I love Supergirl, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Woman, She-Hulk, Mary Marvel, and Jane Foster Thor.

I never liked She-Thing (or whatever her name was).  I think it's partially because I really like Ben Grimm/Thing, and she seemed just way too gimmicky.  Also, she no sexy.  I can't deny that might be part of it. ;-)  But it's also that the other characters had identities and stories separate from the male character they were spun off of (even if it was only in name).  She was glommed right onto Thing  (also, damn it, he belongs with Alicia!). So the other characters went off to be their own thing, while she was around and just seemed to devalue Ben Grimm/The Thing.  (Not really the best time in FF comics or Marvel comics in general.)

I think 'better than nothing' works quite well when I saw it as an option. (There's even a story title / concept in that three word phrase, which is intriguing).

It's not a great title, but it's, er, better than nothing.

I've been so selective over the years that I don't even remember She-Thing. 

I will say that the original Ms. Marvel, back when she was Carol and very conflicted over who and what she was, and was still wearing the red and black costume, was a great favorite of mine. Her super and non-super identities didn't really know each other at first, but she gradually came to understand that she was both Carol and Ms. Marvel, and painfully learned to deal with the transition. 

The character has changed immensely since then, and IMHO, not for the better. There was something about the original Carol that I found very appealing, not the least for being a stunning blonde who had this very male job (Security at Cape Canaveral, spaceport if I recall, which I think they fired her from because she was unstable or whatever), and how she figured out she was also this strange alien named Ms. Marvel.

I need to go back and look at my old issues... I think I have all her original run from the Bronze Age period somewhere.
