Shooter is spinning revisionist history. He said in interviews that Janet was this perfect woman who needed to be away from Hank. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing with the character. Shooter wanted to crap on Hank so that his waifu could develop. >>86196440
...Except the page before the Janet Slap had Pym try and squash Janet with an angry fist.
Don't forget the infamous Avengers #200 issue where Carol Danvars got raped/impregnated by her own son and then the Avengers wished her farewell.
Or the time Bruce Banner almost raped at a YMCA by these 2 dudes. Shooter denies and downplays all this shit on that blog of his.
The Internet really did a great job in bringing together comic fans and posting old comics to shed light on how fucked up things were. John Byrne himself bitches a lot online and people see him as the weirdo that he truly is.
