Anyone who has this kind of reaction to a comic book has way too much time on their hands and needs a reality check. It's just not that big of a deal. Get over it.

Tell that to sexually abused or exploited teenaged girls.

Wolfman and Perez always planned on the NTT Titans as being around college age. They had even wanted to take the "Teen" out of the title when it began in 1980, but DC balked on it.

Think about how the outside world views this, we almost make fun of it, but Samantha Geimer just released a book about what happened to her at 13 with Roman Polanski. Any criticism that we get from the wider world is justified. There is no way this type of depiction is right or can be justified.

LOL, wut? Did you just make an equivalent Hitler/Nazi internet argument tactic?
TC: "Uh... this pic is kind of creepy. That girl is 14!"
LT: "It's just a comic, quit yer bitching!"
JC: "WuT ABOUT GIRLS THAT GOT RAPED?!!"

You completely jumped about twelve levels of logic and reason to "win" the discussion. :lol:

The missing detail is that a teenage version of the Hellfire Club would have "JUICY" or "QUEEN" printed across the panties.

Put a teen Emma Frost in there as the White Queen, and we'd have had a hell of a discussion about the juxtaposition of racial branding and teen exploitation.

Black Queen: Your knees look a little scratchy there, Whitey. Been sexting with your mouth again?
White Queen: Oh shut up and fry some collards!

Yeah, I noticed this in my review too.

I don't mind really, it's not like Idie is actually a 14 year-old girl, she's fictional. This is article is a bit too 'Comics Alliancey' and not Outhousey enough.

As creepy as that scene was ( and it really is kinda freakin' creepy) I'm more bugged by the Snot kid and all the tongues to tell the truth.

So we need to start an online petition that rape kits do NOT include a copy of this comic?

how the fuck have I been thrown in here? I have made zero, repeat ZERO comments about the appropriateness or inappropriateness of said single panel in a 22-page book. my comment of it being a fun book is in regard to the general tone of the entirety of the 33+ issues of the book itself. morans.

that said, if you want my opinion, I find the panel to be disgusting and inappropriate.*
