I just don't think they do enough to make me care about her character. Plus the writers seem confused about political issues and such when they're writing. I'm just not into a book with little or no internal dialogue. She rarely gives you a peek at what's going on with her and that makes her uninteresting.
I can understand her not having a sounding block, maybe she can't talk to a close friend, but she can think, everyone does as much as they try not to, and she never really lets you know what she's about.
I've been reading a lot of interviews about this and many think that's what happened to comics in the mid-90s.
The writers became to focused on the ass kicking being done and not the person behind the mask.
Hulk has Banner, we see how he feels when he's taken over. The guilt he feels and we sympathise.
Spider-Man has Peter and even when he is Spider-man the one liners and the thoughts are always given to us to remind the audience that Spider-Man is called that because he is a man.
I don't think anyone would care as much about Wolverine if we didn't know all the stuff he had to go through. Origins has almost no fighting and very little, super hero content, but it's one of the best things I've read lately, comic or not.
I dug many of your other choices and love Ultimates... probably for the very reason that I dislike Electra.
