Politically Incorrect Theater – Part 13

2015/06/24

Those really awkward-in-hindsight moments when you watch The Living Daylights (1987) and realize that James Bond is enlisting the aid of the Taliban-to-be, the Mujahideen.

Good luck fitting this into your floating timeline, Bond fans.

Wait a minute…your all-female, misandrist, gendercidal planet is called what? Seriously?!

I think your planet's name might be missing a couple of I's there. :P

I think Wonder Woman's been spending too much time reading radical feminist blogs on Tumblr.

I think someone’s been spending too much time reading radical feminist blogs on Tumblr.

Remember what Wonder Woman was like before the New 52? When her response to men disrespecting her involved petty acts of vandalism and destruction of private property rather than explicit threats of castration (which makes her about one step removed from Frank Miller‘s interpretation of her)?

I kinda miss that Wonder Woman.

This…thing…was taken from Wonder Woman #19 (June 2013) by Brian Azzarello, Tony Akins, Goran Sudžuka, and Dan Green.

Oh, Dick Grayson, would your fangirls still swoon over you if they knew what a condescending, sexist douchebag you used to be as a teenager…?

Yeesh, I wonder how he treated Wonder Girl back then...

We may have a long way to go when it comes to getting rid of homophobia, but at least we’re well beyond the point of Bruce Banner nearly getting raped by two horrible gay stereotypes in the shower of the local YMCA.

What the hell is this supposed to be, the urban version of "Deliverance"?

Ladies and gentlemen, the 1980s Marvel Universe version of “Deliverance”.

This cringeworthy moment in Marvel Universe history has been brought to you by The Hulk! #23 (October 1980) by Denny O’Neill, Jim Shooter, Roger Stern, Alfredo Alcala, Brent Anderson, John Buscema, Howard Chaykin, Steve Oliff, and John Tartag.

Dusty apparently doesn’t know the meaning of “cognitive dissonance”.

Man, talk about your casual racism...

Man, talk about your casual racism…

This (unintentional) ethnic slur has been brought to you by G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero – Episode 60: The Invaders (November 29, 1985).

<sarcasm> Isn’t it wonderful how far we’ve come since the 1980s when it comes to stereotyping Middle Easterners? </sarcasm>

Oh yeah. The writers totally went there. >_<;

This was bad enough to kill Cliffjumper, Bluestreak, and Teletraan I.

This rather shameful display comes to you courtesy of The Transformers – Episode 66: Five Faces of Darkness – Part 1 (September 15, 1986) and Episode 75: Thief in the Night (October 6, 1986).

There’re some pretty messed-up alternate timelines in the Empowered Multiverse.

I wonder if his battle cry is "The Juicetice is loose!"?

Politically Incorrect Theater – Part 4

I’m not sure which of the following is the most facepalm-worthy: the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, the captions and editor’s comments mocking the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, or Barry Allen‘s joke about underage marriage/pedophilia.

I don't even know where to begin describing how utterly wrong this is.

This landmark in Silver Age offensiveness has been brought to you by The Flash #180 (June 1968) by Frank Robbins, Ross Andru, and Mike Esposito.
