    eros had a power like that... and even though he claims he never used it as such (except in marz' SS annual) dan slott eventually used a plotline alluding to this, but in the climax claimed that he only became rapey because of thanos' meddling making him unable to stop using it correctly (though everyone thereafter says dude was actually a creepy rapist)

    Interested in reading Daredevil? Not sure what to read next? Why not check out the Daredevil Book Club for some ideas?

    Bendis also referenced Avengers #200 in an issue of "The Pulse" but played it off as a joke.

    Check out the first two panels of this scene, where Bendis shows that a writer’s epic failure to recognise the implications of what they are writing is not limited to the 1970s.



    Next we should outlaw cologne because it might attract someone.

    Seeing as how the comics industry is the same industry which used to widely publish blackface minstrel show racial stereotypes in the 1940s, suffice to say, there has been much growing pains in some publishers learning from their foolishness, while others could regrettably take longer.

    Uh-huh, and then you get the ones who get defensive and act like the people pointing it out are the ones with the problem.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    I don't know of any cologne that has a factually known effect of consistently influencing behavior.

    True. But it's kinda sad when you consider how recent some examples are, or how bad they were.

    The worst depiction of a sexual relationship I can think of in recent memory was in Wildcats 2.0. One of the cast, Mr. Wax, has mind control powers, and is being treated like crap by his boss, being forced to drive his boss' wife around. After being verbally abused by her while driving, he uses his powers to make her give him a blow job.

    Rape, obviously, but the series treats it as an affair instead, and the fact that she fights the mind control less and less as consent. And this guy was treated as the conscience of the series!
