Dark Morality

I think de-Mary Sueing Kitty Pryde, as presented in the comics, would reveal a more disturbing side to what else she can do with her power given her training and upbringing. Especially if she hangs out a lot with dubious or troubled characters so frequently that would affect her for the worse.

Whether if they’ve got their own issues or manipulate her against her will (though this isn’t unique to her) would be enough to screw her up especially in her formative years especially in the earlier stories. If she’s trained to assassinate people, has a temper herself and especially if she’s close to somebody who goes berserk like Wolverine, she’d easily have no issue delving into sadism.

She’d have no issue murdering or stabbing people. If she had been abused many times over in her own life, especially by Emma Frost, Sa-Tyr-9, Ogun, Belasco and Stryker added to that she was trained by Ogun she’d willingly abuse them back. She may’ve already done this to Emma and Ogun before.

But if she has no issues with killing and hacking, then she’d have no issues with stealing, rape and kidnapping. She’d be necessary evil taken to a logical conclusion because she’s does this to protect mutantkind. Even if she does this by having no real regard for the law whatsoever.

She’d be like Robin Hood without even trying considering the nature of her power and conditioning.

Miss Good Enough

It’s unsurprising that women have been subjected to nearly impossible standards that sometimes clash with one’s conditions and circumstances. It’s one thing to try to control pimples and shave body hair to look clean but that makes somebody rather high maintenance to achieve something for a long time. It’s another thing to realise that even those with complete and severe partial androgen insensitive syndrome are imperfect in some way.

While they seem near-perfect (some can’t get even body hair and pimples at all) and others needn’t menstrual pads, but because they’re unable to give birth we shouldn’t forget that female childlessness and infertility are often stigmatised and as suspected as their genders are. Especially when it comes to sports with Caster Semenya, though her condition’s different, continues this.

As if these standards are so impossible that such men are better off with Miss Good Enough instead. Women can’t easily fulfill those either way and moreso if they have a condition. (PCOS intersects the problems of both body hair and infertility.)

Something’s shocking

I think if a famous mangaka not only converted to Christianity but also began reading The Divine Comedy because he had dreams of other cartoonists like Osamu Tezuka in hell for indulging in something shameful and then adapting the Bible, while he’s not the only one to be influenced by Dante nor is he the only one to adapt the Bible. There’s even an anime called Superbook.

What’s alarming however is that he’s one of the least expected. Go Nagai should be a likelier choice as he’s influenced by Dante but he never converted to Christianity to my knowledge. This one however would take the Divine Comedy seriously and may do anything to retrace those steps in a way as well as understanding what Dante meant.

(I get the feeling that the Divine Comedy’s an early example of those hell testimonies though not the first one either.)

To make matters worse he starts denouncing the anime industry for being depraved and one wonders if he’s going to do his own version of Jack Chick cartoons soon.
