Bitches! (Stupid Comic Book Edition)



Circa 1987. It's true that the Avengers did not work so well under women: they lost to the bad guys and were killed in each and every issue.

I'm just saying that a group that trashes someone's house should probably be better named as Masters of Pretty Bad rather than Masters of Evil.
Also, fuck them if they can't handle a woman boss. Avengers? More like Whingers

Masters of Pretty Bad

Baron Zemo did rip up a picture of Bucky in front of Captain America's eyes, and we all know Bucky's a sore spot. Or itchy spot. How would you put that?

A weeping sore? It's difficult to get the phrasing right

I bet if you look closely, you'll find a similar letter from Spencer Ackerman...

So, among the Avengers' "Conservative Men", I see a pagan god, a half-fish eco-warrior, a bisexual pagan demigod, and a hippy-dippy tree-hugging Druid. What is our letter writer talking about?

Wasn't that back when Captain Marvel was a black woman? So very nice to see sexism actually trump racism for once.

Not.

Yup.

The editors responded pretty well without writing FUCK YOU which I believe the Comics Code Authority would not have gone for.
