I just don't see why Bendis is worried about Angouleme leaving out lady candidates
Superhero comics titan Brian Michael Bendis wrote on his Tumblr that he decided to make a stand "as i drifted off to sleep last night," when "i thought of my daughters. my smart, strong willed daughters who will STILL have to fight for their equal rights and how they will STILL have to fend off some men treating them as objects before they can see them as individuals and how insane it seems to me."Once again, the very man who turned Scarlet Witch into a crazy madwoman stereotype (and later a story where Hawkeye took sexual advantage of her) has spoken. The man who regurgitated the whole Phoenix cliche. And the man who concocted a scene in his take on Avengers where Tigra was assaulted by a villain called The Hood. If he was on his way to Angouleme but decided to pull out, he wouldn't be missed. Just another hypocritical modern comics writer who preaches but won't look at himself in the mirror.
The Angouleme festival may need room for improvement. But that improvement will have to leave out men like Bendis who're only concerned about certain social issues to boost their own smug egos.
