Yes. I believe a rape will take place in the pages of Superior Spider-Man.
No. I don't believe a rape will take place in the pages of Superior Spider-Man.
I believe rape already occurred in Amazing Spider-Man 700: Doc Ock/Peter kissed MJ.
Ive seen TV shows, movies & comics where kisses happen due to mistaken identities & its not rape.
The poll is wrong and not worth voting on.
It hasn't happened (yet).....but these discussions centre around:
Is there an inference of potential rape? Most people can see there is.....and there is...
Is it rape? Well yes, by deception.....MJ would be having sex with Doc Ock unknowingly and therefore against her will (because she would never do that knowingly)......consent is still an issue in matters connected with rape
It hasn't happened, but the big question is should we allow the possibility of it happening, should we accept the potential of the inference shown and not say/do anything about it.....
It is only fiction, but shouldn't we challenge the ideas presented if we see them as wrong?
Are these the sort of issues and storylines we want for Peter and MJ....for (the Amazing) Spider-Man?
Honestly, there are now two threads with over 65 pages worth of discussion about the rape of a fictional character that may or may not happen. Do you not see the hilarity in that? So, yeah, I'm not above "poll" jokes. Put me on ignore if it bugs you.
Kevin, yes but my point is about the possibility, and the potentiality of it happening. As you said "Ooooh that's creepy"! You/we all know what could/might happen that's the issue! That being implied or inferred is the issue and this is pretty clear to most people. You don't think Slott n Wacker know/meant this? Do we want to wait for it to happen before we say something? of course it might not matter until it happens some are saying, and that it won't, but what if it does? Do you have that much faith in S n W, after they took us down this road in the first place, in this year of all years, 50 yrs of Spidey and we get Peter offed and potentially his wife raped by an arch enemy? Is that meant to wash easily over fans of the Spidey we've known for up to 50 years?
Wow, this thread is in serious poor taste, not only because of the distasteful poll, but also because of the knucklehead comments it's going to garner.
2. I personally don't mind stories that tackle tough subjects like rape. While I would hate to see it happen to MJ, I would still enjoy the story if it was told well.
3. I have faith in MJ. She either suspects or will soon suspect that something's up with Pete.
"Hate to see it happen to MJ" good we're agreed.
I do not want this to happen to MJ! And of course MJ would (under normal/better writing circumstances) spot that something's up with Pete, and in fact do something about it........but, we're in the hands of people who gave us/allowed OMD and OMIT and whom in my opinion have bad regard for MJ, so I fear the worst and am not optimistic.....
Anyway gotta go for now, it's 1.45 am here in "blighty".....goodnight!
I don't think that it'll happen...
