The thing about Carol is that she's a "burned" character. Ever since her inception people have been trying to find a niche for her yet there are no takers. Her high point was when she was first created and slowly but surely began to fall down to where it is now. Her highest point, when it comes to 21st century, was her book in 06 under reed where she got 50 issues out before getting shitcanned. Seriously, just let her die, it hurts to be burned.
