    Default Sexist moments in Marvel Comics

    Marvel has been known for having some pretty sexist characters. What are some of the most sexist moments that you could think of?

    Hmm...I can easily see this thread going out of control at some point but I'll play anyway.



    You can't tell by the cover but the Valkyrie on the cover is not the current Val, it's the Enchantress. And the story isn't really a story about female empowerment, it's a subtle jab at Women's Lib.

    There was that time Carol Danvers was raped, and became pregnant, gave birth to her own rapist, and under mind control married him, and the Avengers though this was the bestest thing ever.
    So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God. So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath. So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul". So I hit him. What would you do?

    Everything Reed Richards until Byrne. Malice basically backlash at Sue Storm's characterization until that moment.

    Cyclops has gotten raped-by-fraud at least twice and no one has cared.
    You know, it's funny that DisMarvel keeps proving that "CYCLOPS WAS RIGHT"; even when he is dead.

    Possibly because those "rapists" were super-sexy women and he actually just needed an excuse to cheat on Jean/Madelyne?

    The second time was Maddie posing as Emma.

    Maybe that was good time to finally serve Maddie with divorce papers. Maddie could be forgiven for having the impression that this is what her husband is into nowadays.

    Bendis and other writers treatment of Wanda as a walking plot device and baby-crazed nutjob.

    The all-time classic is Reed and Ben's response to reader complaints that Sue was useless and should be written out of the comic. It's well-intentioned (trying to make the case for Sue as an inspiration to the team even if she's not as powerful as the others) and you know what they say is paved with good intentions.

    I'm not sure there's anything sexy about sexism.

    There was also the Hood and his goons viciously beating Tigra up.

    That didn't get resolved until Gage's Avengers: The Initiative Run during Dark Reign.

    That read almost like a fanfic, with a writer abusing a character for no other reason than he didn't like them.
