(The Avengers Featuring Ready Girl#1 (fb) - BTS) - Born in Long Island
City, Queens, New York, Rosie Green lived a life much like any other
kid, including going to school, riding the subway and playing with her
dog and younger brother. In her downtime, she enjoyed hula hooping,
painting and eating pizza with her friends but when her superhuman
powers emerged, she dedicated her life to keeping New York City safe.
After she took the identity of the superheroic Ready Girl, Rosie made
it a point to use her Ready Girl identity to teach other children about
floods, hurricanes and even winter storms, feeling it was important to
know what to do during emergency situations. At some point, Ready Girl
also saved a young boy's cousin from a Staten Island flash flood.
(The Avengers Featuring Ready Girl#1) - A year
following the Staten Island flood, as a category 1 hurricane approached
Long Island City, Rosie listened to the radio reports of the
approaching storm and felt confidant that her and her dog were
prepared. When her dog barked at Rosie's little brother Randall outside
playing, Rosie guessed that Randall's emergency preparedness bag was
likely filled with action figures and comic books, remarking that if
Randall wouldn't listen to Rosie, perhaps he would listen to Ready
Girl. Flying down to the playground as Ready Girl, Rosie warned Randall
and the other children to get inside for their own protection but many
of the kids scoffed, claiming that the storm didn't seem so bad and
that their parents told them that the weathermen exaggerate for
ratings. Ready Girl replied that the storm could do a lot of damage and
one of the kids asked if that was her job to stop the storm as a hero,
prompting Ready Girl to explain that there were some dangers even a
superhero couldn't fight. Ready Girl then continued, giving the
children three rules to go by: get ready by having emergency contacts
and meeting places handy, get set by preparing an emergency kit and go
by having a travel go bag prepared. Her attempts at easing the
children's worries were interrupted when an escaping Whirlwind flew
past them. Ready Girl ordered the children to get safely inside before
following and engaging Whirlwind in an area without as much potential
collateral damage. As Ready Girl flew circles and avoided Whirlwind,
the Avengers arrived on the scene and took down Whirlwind. With
Whirlwind downed, Ready Girl looked at the looming storm clouds and
informed the Avengers that the battle might be over but the real danger
was just beginning.

The concept of Ready Girl is part of the real-life
New York Emergency Management. A girl dressed as Ready Girl actually
visits schools and teaches children about emergency preparedness.
"Ready Girl" also has a blog
that follows her real-life exploits! If I want to get technical, the
blog and the girl dressed as Ready Girl would be Earth-1218 (the real
world) whereas the comic is Earth-616's Ready Girl, who actually has
The Avengers Featuring Ready Girl#1 was an online
digital comic published by Marvel in association with New York
There is nothing to say that the Avengers Featuring Ready Girl digital comic is not in prime universe canon, as it fits perfectly in between issues of 2016's All-New, All-Different Avengers comic, in which Ms. Marvel was a member of the Avengers.
The origins of Ready Girl's flying powers were never
explained, other than her saying "when I discovered my super powers."
That statement suggests to me that her powers emerged on their own,
like a mutant. I suppose she could also have been mutated and her
powers appeared a short time after the mutation...
