So a recent Sneak Peak of Justice League 3001 showed that Guy Gardner (or maybe his clone) is female now. As you can see from this cover, this wasn't the first time he's been genderbent, so I thought I'd put in a few scans of the time the villain Dementor helped Guy get in touch with his feminine side.

The audience's attitudes towards certain subjects change as time progresses, so what might seem harmless or even amusing to a past audience comes across as offensive or even creepy by one of today! So, I thought that I'd gather up a few for your perusal.*

*Note: This isn't meant to make light of what they're doing or who they're doing it to, but rather pointing out how unpleasant and strange it is that SUPERHEROES are the ones doing it.

My ten year old self enjoyed the Wild C.A.T.s cartoon, it wasn't as good as X-men, but it was a fun time waster with an interesting scifi premise: Two alien races have been engaged in a shadow war for millennia, one defending mankind the other trying to dominate it. The villainous aliens have the ability to posses human hosts, the other team must recruit their allies from a pool of human/alien hybrids who have inherited special gifts.

The equivalent to X-men's Jubilee, the naive teen who serves as an audience surrogate was called Voodoo and she had the power to see, and exorcise the evil Daemonites.

What I didn't know when I was 10 was that in the comic books she was a stripper. The way this aspect of the character is handled in the original Image comics is worlds apart from how her DC Universe counterpart was treated.

Apartment renting. If you're lucky, you get to rent from a reasonable owner and share a building with people and animals who are halfway civilized. If you're not so lucky...you might just be New Yorkers Jane and Stephen from Alex Robinson's graphic novel Box Office Poison (Antarctic Press, 1996-2000; collected ed. Top Shelf, 2002). One page from Issue 4 (Mar 1997); eight pages from Issue 8 (Feb 1998).

Trigger warning for misogynistic slurs.
