So I'll be predictable with my first visual example.

It's interesting that in MEN OF TOMORROW, Gerald Jones observed that most of the ads in Golden Age WONDER WOMAN were directed at male readers. It's problematic as to whether or not this meant that the majority of readers were males, but it does poke some holes in certain current theories that would claim that superhero comics are all about "excluding" the female.

But the opening shot said that this liberality toward female characters-- the example being ALIEN'S Ellen Ripley-- wasn't a tendency of modern "Nerd Culture."

Oh, reaaalllllyyy???
