'Aren’t most superhero comics basically pornography with fight scenes instead of sex scenes (with the knockout punch acting as the cum shot)? Aren’t superheroes usually depicted visually as naked human figures with lines drawn onto them and colored as costumes? I think I remember Frank Miller once saying that, in his first run on Daredevil, the scenes where Elektra and Daredevil would fight were basically the two of them consummating their relationship. That’s the way superheroes do it.'
People were unconvinced by Joe Casey, but I do think the premise makes sense. It’s a shame that Sex is so didactic and asexual, but it got me thinking about why and how sex and violence are linked in superhero fights.
Note: there’s nothing explicit in these scans, and I don’t bring up outright sexual assault, but the confluence of sex and violence can get pretty uncomfortable and misogynistic at points, so fair warning.
Is it even really worth featuring Deadpool on a blog dedicated to highlighting the weird things superheroes do
