To be fair re Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel, there has been a female Captain Marvel since the mid ‘80’s.

That Marvel finally woke up & realised that a Female Captain Marvel should be Carol Danvers in 2012 reflects more on Marvel missing a trick back in the ‘80’s than anything else.
& Rey is not the issue with the new Star Wars films. For me, it was the portrayal of Luke in TLJ (together with the longest car chase in film history and the concept that freeing animals is better than freeing slaves). Rey I’m fine with & I really don’t get the whole Mary Sue thing. & I also liked the new Doctor, but then I didn’t really like Capaldi’s Doctor. So, you know, maybe I don’t fit the demographic mentality that has a problem with these things.
It’s a bit like belonging to a church with a female Pastor (my wife). You would not believe the things some male Pastors think are acceptable to say to her, purely because she is a female.
Why are some men so threatened by females in certain roles? Why do women in certain roles diminish some men so much?
Edit - I've debated with myself about asking this last question, but you know what? Sod it
How weak are you as a man, that you feel personally threatened by women in roles historically occupied by men? Why does a woman, over there, doing something that prevents you achieving not one jot, personally offend and threaten your sense of self?
This whole Mary Sue crap is a created concept by men that want to keep women down. That you cannot see that the action genre has been dominated by Joe Pete's (for want of a better term) is incredulous.
And if you are offended personally by any of these questions, then yes, you are the 'you' in those questions and need to rethink your view of women.
