The test doesn't account for conversations between a man and woman that has nothing to do with romance. The story could feature a woman who is leading a group of men into battle, but it wouldn't pass. However, it would pass if two women talked about shoe shopping. It only measures arbitrary quantities in an effort to somehow critique the level of feminism in a story. Yet even New Ultimates, which is supposedly all about feminism, barely passes, and some might argue that it doesn't at all.

Listen all... I really don't know what happened. Amazon was having an epic comics sale and I needed another cheap book to qualify for free super shipping for my Ultimate Doomsday OHC and damn them, they suggested the Ultimatum OHC and I went for it. I told myself it was only because I "needed" it for completion's sake. I sat down to read it a couple of days ago, fully expecting to have my negative memories for it reaffirmed when I found myself enjoying it! Dangit! What did wyokid slip into my drink? >_>
Anyway, I then spent the next few days expanding a critique that I wrote in notepad into a full blown essay. Would anyone be interested in me posting a MONSTROUS reevaluation presenting my feelings on the subject after a second read through some 4 years later?
Marriage Era Spidey bashers are shameful opportunists (Like you REALLY didn't enjoy a single Spidey comic in 20 years)
Conversely, BND haters REALLY need to get over their continuity elitism already
Go for it.
