When comic books were not for girls! Part 2

In 1986 the Marvelization of DC was continuing unabated. Stories were becoming grittier, darker and sexier. The 6-issue mini the Lords of the Ultra-Realm written by Doug Moench and drawn by Pat Broderick was equal parts Zelazny and the Marvel version of god-like conceptual avatars of "universal ideas" such as Love, Greed and Hate given humanoid form.

It seems that six issues was not enough to tell the entire story of the LotUR, so DC published the Lords of the Ultra-Realm Special in 1987. Or as I refer to it, the All-Incest Special. In a power-grab worthy of a Borgia Pope, one of the children of the avatar gods kidnaps his giant-breasted Mother/Father Aspect and rapes her while detailing his fiendish plan to conquer the realm. She really seems to get into the assault, so much so that they later give dad the boot and live hateily ever after in Castle Anger.

  1. Ironically, when they say "For Mature Readers," more often than not they mean "For Immature Readers."
