I’ve mentioned stupid superhero comic covers before

I’ve mentioned stupid superhero comic covers before, but I have to mention another classically dumb one, from the 1970s, when Marvel Comics had grasped there was such a thing as feminism, without having fully got to grips with its subtleties. Ms Marvel was created as a modern feminist superheroine. Her first issue had her fighting old Spider-Man villain the Scorpion. Her rather confused words on that cover were “Give it up Scorpion! You’re not man enough to beat Ms Marvel!” Magnificent.
