Spider-Woman ends up naked in one of Bendis' latest monstrosities

In Avengers 12.1, Brian Bendis continues to be the bad omen the Earth's Mightiest Heroes has been burdened with ever since Joe Quesada gave him nearly free reign 7 years ago, and demonstrates how truly, he doesn't care one single bit about the characters who've been enslaved under his writing. As seen in this panel from the issue, via Too Busy Thinking About My Comics, Bendis and artist Brian Hitch depict Jessica Drew, the first Spider-Woman, imprisoned naked following abduction by the very Wizard who's often led the Frightful Four, with the Mad Thinker joining him in the act. Looks like Dr. Light won't be the only costumed supervillain bound for an embarrassing tarnishing.

Just how much more of this torture and degradation will the whole Avengers franchise and any Marvel cast - especially the women - have to endure before Bendis and the accompanying artists who are just as guilty of contempt as he is, finally be gone? Only when Marvel's comics properties are in the ownership of people who actually care, or when they've been forced to shut down publishing due to depleted readership and moneymaking, I fear.

It is odd he would write torture porn about Jessica Drew, especially given his apparent preference for her. (I like the character, too, but the way he shoehorned in practically everything in the mid-2000's is a tad much.) Wouldn't he have her kick ass whilst nude, as the other blog noted? Oh, well, maybe she isn't his favorite, anymore?

Although, frankly, if you're going to draw naked! Jessica, at least, get Frank Cho. I found Hitch's artwork to be borderline God-awful, to be honest. Of course, art is subjective, so what do I know?

You and the other blog captured the proper umbrage nicely, so there's nothing else for me to say.

I wonder if this will start a trend.... Probably!
