Celebs 3: Emma Frost

 Ok, so technically Emma Frost isn't a celebrity, since she's not a real person. But I saw this and just had to post it. It's from the latest issue of Avengers Vs X-Men. Each issue features an Avenger fights a member of the X-Men. In the latest issue, Emma Frost squares off against Thor.

Except, well... their conflict is clearly a stand-in for male confidence versus female domination. They're essentially fighting for Thor's manhood. I've never seen anything like it in a comic.

Thor talks about how he's "more than a man" and Emma immediately takes him down a couple of pegs - questioning his masculinity and generally screwing with his head (page 3 is my favorite). Thor gets visibly upset at her taunts, leading the reader to assume that perhaps she's right...

What do you think?
