Ms. MARVEL MINI-COVER & SPLASH PAGE GALLERY...
One look at the costume and it's obvious that, back in the '70s,
comics were still aimed mainly at teenage boys (of which I was one).
There's no way in real-life an actual superheroine would ever wear a
costume that revealing to fight criminals and superpowered robots and
the like. That said, the scanty costume fulfilled its purpose because that
was the only reason I bought the mag - for the 'good girl art'. The first
ish is the one I bought way back then, the subsequent three I acquired
many years later (early to mid-'90s maybe) just because they came
my way at a reasonable price. These are the only four I have.
Ms. MARVEL, eh? It's obvious that feminism still extended
its influence into mainstream culture at the time, otherwise it would
simply have been 'Miss' Marvel. Ironic how feminism is the very thing
that caused women to lose (or discard) their femininity and embrace the
'laddette' lifestyle which pervades society today. Is there such a thing as
an elegant, sophisticated, softly-spoken, lady-like woman anymore? If
so, someone found and married her before I got the chance. All I see
are hordes of screaming, shouting, itching, scratching, alcohol-swig-
ging, belching, farting, swearing harpies (some nice-looking ones
admittedly) wherever I go - and those I can well live without.
(Although, to be fair, they'd feel the same about me.)
Okay, rant over. No doubt I'll be accused of being a male
chauvinist pig, but as I always say, it's better than being a woman
who won't do as she's told. Who's with me lads? Shout "Aye!"
H'mm. Kinda quiet around here, isn't it?
