The Most Promiscuous Superheroes in Comics
Superheroes have always represented the heroic ideal, paragons of honor and virtue who put their incredible talents to use defending the weak and innocent, rather than cashing in for their own benefit. Maybe that's why it's so shocking whenever we see superheroes who are total pervs. Initially aimed solely at school-age children, comic books were later devoured by GI's deployed across the world during WWII. In the late '80s, Marvel and DC decided they no longer needed to adhere to the CCA, and began pushing the boundaries of acceptable content, bringing graphic depictions of violence and superhero sex back to the medium. Today, pretty much anything goes.
