Fantastic Four #14: Blatant Sexism 2

Fantastic Four #14, page 4, panel 7 Script: Stan Lee

Art: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

After a short break, it's time to check in with the Fantastic Four, who themselves are having a short break. Having fulfilled President Kennedy's ambition to land a man on the moon before the end of the decade during his own lifetime, having fought the Red Ghost and his stupid super apes, discovered The Watcher, and been mobbed at the airport, it's only natural that the team want to take a rest.

Except for Sue, who manages to live up to a gender stereotype by deciding that now is the time to do a spot of housecleaning. What merits this inclusion on the list of sexist moments is Reed's wonderfully patronising response.

Ah, Reed, you pompous ass.
