Comic Book Bread And Butter...

We comic-book readers are generally a pretty open-minded bunch. Years ofreading stories about guys who accidentally turn into giant green monsters and wreck up cities or dudes who are basically walking piles of orange rocks but are still swell guys has taught us not to judge a book by it's cover.
We don't care if you have giant, adamantium claws instead of fingers or telescopic, robotic arms so long you can reach over your shoulder and scratch your ass. Even if you go by a name like Lady Deathstrike, we won't just assume you're some kind of monster to be feared and loathed. We'll still give you a fair shake.
However, if you run across a dying Nazi colonel who has just spent his last hours trying to run over folks in a tank to further his career and he refers to you as "pure evil" - then maybe it's time to take a good hard look in the mirror.

(Today's ethical tautology was brought to you courtesy of Wolverine v2 #37. It's the conclusion to an awesome Larry Hama story with delectable art from Marc Silvestri wherein Wolverine, Lady Deathstrike, and for some unknown reason Alpha Flight's resident midget Puck, travel back in time and fight some Nazis. In comics you haven't lived until you've travelled back in time and fought some Nazis. Nazis and monkeys people they're comic-book bread and butter)
