4. Midnighter Sodomizes (Not) Captain America to Death With a Jackhammer (Authority)
Despite his near-miss due to DC’s editorial board, Midnighter manages to make the cut anyway. Earlier in Mark Millar’s “Authority” run, the Authority run up against a government-backed pastiche of the Avengers. Their leader, the Commander, also happens to be a serial rapist, and implicitly rapes Midnighter’s lover Apollo. Of course, Apollo recovers and proceeds to decimate many of the government-backed superheroes, but leaves the Commander wounded and alive. And then Midnighter shows up with a jackhammer. So remember, if you’re ever writing for DC, brutal violence and overt political commentary is crossing the line, but jackhammer-rape? That’s cool.
