AVENGERS #215-216: Molecule Man

The team takes on the unbelievably powerful Molecule Man.

Tigra had just barely arrived on the team before she got captured by this very creepy dude and implicitly held as a sex toy. I have a whole slideshow on this site devoted to Avengers getting captured and pinned to walls (mostly), and that happens in this issue: They get stuck in an odd looking toothlike trap by the Molecule Man, which you can see here.

But Tigra had no such luck–her fate, as Owen’s plaything, is truly creepy and dark.

So much so that at the end of this issue, she quit the team.

This is about as creepy-perverted as 1980s Marvel Comics got. Much later, in the pages of Alias (by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos), Jessica Jones would be captured by Purple Man and much more implicitly (and repeatedly) raped while under mind control. That was a MAX title. But it was just as disturbing here, even if they couldn’t treat it as deeply or deal with the ramifications as clearly.

BONUS: Ann Nocenti makes a guest appearance, which you’ll find on my tribute to Comic Book Cameos page!
