As long as I'm on statues showcasing domesticated women I have one more thing to get off my chest. (Others have pointed this out, but I still need to say it.) This whole MJ thing reminded me of this:
That one pisses me off more than any of the others, and its not the outfit. Kirby designed that outfit. Didn't bug me when he drew it. Its the pose. Do you know what would have been a better pose for Barda in that statue?
When Kirby drew Barda in that outfit she was doing strength exercises, lifting heavy things, and discussing the plot and battle plans with Scott. Here Barda is holding Scott's cape for him. Effectively the little woman is holding her husband's coat while he goes off to actually do stuff. It's Big Barda for heaven's sake. She should be kicking something's ass in any statue.
"Honey, here's your cape. Now go out and save the world without me."
"I'll hold your coat while you fight him, darling. Good luck."
Seriously, does that fucking sound like the quintessential Big Barda moment to you?
Yeesh, what is wrong with these licensing people?
