Why were people not appreciating her before, but later they did ?

In the Golden Age of Comic Books both the heroes, and people's reactions to them, were unrealistic. If you watch some of the classic Superman cartoons from that time, Superman was not only altruistic, but mostly unquestioned. After all, he stopped the bad guys and that was all that mattered. Who cares that a man who can bend steel with his bare hands or incinerate them on a whim might be a threat?
This was where people like Stan Lee stepped in in the 1960s with some more realism. In the Marvel universe, superheroes weren't universally accepted. Spider Man, for instance, was met with skepticism and/or fear
Thinking that Spider-Man has at last proved himself, Peter Parker is shocked when he reads J. Jonah Jameson's editorial in the next edition of the Daily Bugle. Spider-Man is accused of deliberately sabotaging the space capsule and staging the rescue as a publicity stunt. With public opinion turning against Spider-Man with each new editorial in the Daily Bugle, Peter Parker's position is as hopeless as ever.
The funny thing here is that fear is a perfectly natural reaction to this. We fear what we don't understand and a woman picking up a tank defies explanation. It would be far more unnatural if they had no fear at all. Instead, you have to prove yourself over time. A superhero with a track record is going to be more accepted than one with none at all.
