Superhero Sex: pt. 7

The eroticism of superheroes was always most evident in the expression of their powers; there is always such a lot of straining, groaning, and bursting when heroes and villains meet.

Cloak and Dagger was a shitty comic series in the eighties that combined liberal hand-wringing with a racist concept; Cloak’s powers were inherently sinister, and needed to be held in check by Dagger, a whitegirl from an upper-class background. The whole character conception was wrapped around bourgeois sexual fear of black/white romance, and the near-orgasm of the panel below, as Dagger tries to save her “light” for Cloak, shouldn’t seem odd at all.
