FANTASTIC FOUR #81-83: THE HUMAN TORCH IS A RAPIST

fantastic four 81

IMG_0248

In a blow to feminists everywhere, Susan Storm decides she can’t be a working mom.  There’s a little more to it than that, actually—she decides that her job is too dangerous and therefore it’s not right to raise a kid in the Baxter Building.  So, Johnny’s girlfriend, the Inhuman Crystal joins the group over the course of these two done-in-one issues.
But the amazing thing is we learn that Crystal is a minor!  That means that Johnny Storm committed statutory rape!  How is this not a big deal?
Answer: Maybe it is? 
In #95, Lockjaw and Medusa arrive and take Crystal back to be with her kind.  But first, in #83, we get to see that Sue Storm is also a dumb blonde.  The more she thinks, the more she gets confused!  Sigh.
