It's not that I mind women in comics. It's just that, back in the day, they were either totally useless or disproportionately powerful considering their abilities. Speaking of which, here's Mantis!:
But... but... attacking blind guys is great practice! And fun!
Actually, this cover is misleading. Mantis herself wanted to beat up the blind guy, and someone thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase how badass she was supposed to be:
Yeah. See, if you know martial arts, you can toss around Thor, the freakin' God of Thunder, like a used Kleenex.
And, of course, Iron Man's armor is no match for a really, really pissed off martial artist. See? She is woman, hear her roar, in voices too big to ignore...
But for every violent, psychotic chick out there, some pitiful goober pines for her love. Who could that be in this case?
Of course. How silly of me not to have seen that coming.
Off to the Character Hall of Shame with the both of you!
See you Monday!
