All New X-Men looks at superhero naming conventions. Will we see similar for Lady Deathstrike or Lady Deadpool? But yes, what you are known as does affect how you are judged, and there are sexist overtones.
You see? Daredevil’s ex-girlfriend knows. There’s just too much sexism around. Even in the new Justice League Of America!
Poor Vibe, he just can’t catch a break can he? Anyway, isn’t there some equal opportunity ogling due?
Classy as ever. Of course there are lots of liberties being taken today. Over in Indestructible Hulk, Banner is trying to be Bond.
And possibly succeeding.
Maggie Sawyer is getting to grips with her new fiance’s extra-curricular activities.
Oh, and on re-reading, isn’t it nice that the instant “her” isn’t any kind of shocking news any more? It just is.
And in Grant Morrison and Rags Morales’ final issue of Action Comics, we see what the book has really been about. Forget Lois, forget Wonder Woman, Action Comics i simply about a boy and his dog. Good dog. Just wait until the final page… bring the Kleenex.
And yes, you may need the Kleenex for another reason over at Saga.
Captain America has gone without for years in his book, trapped in another dimension. This is his first physical contact with a woman for half a decade. It should have gone better than this.
But that’s the Captain for you. When he was working in comics, he could get laid. But now he’s an eternal warrior? No chance. And he’s looking after a kid that he didn’t even spawn. New Man Captain America.
Over in MGMT we get more blissful thoughts.
While in Five Ghosts it… well, back to James Bond it seems. Basically this week if you’re not doing it, you’re thinking about doing it or just taking your clothes off. Is there anything that might take your mind of it?
