History: (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 super powers.

The Avengers Featuring Ready Girl#1 was an online digital comic published by Marvel in association with New York Emergency Management.

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...

Randall Green was the younger brother of Rosie Green and had no idea she was secretly Ready Girl. As a hurricane approached New York, Randall played outside with his friends, prompting Ready Girl to approach the children and remind them about being prepared in emergency situations. Her speech to Randall and his friends was interrupted by Whirlwind and Ready Girl got the children to safety before engaging Whirlwind.
