We've been talking about how female characters are portrayed in comics. There have been some big strides in treating them with more respect over the years but there are still those moments that really make you cringe. We put the question out to the Comic Vine Community to see who you felt knows how to properly treat a lady.

Several commented that many publishers have both good and bad portrayals and had difficulty narrowing it down to just one. The reality of it is, a lot of the depiction is not necessary. We see complaints about not enough people reading comics or not enough female readers existing. With some of the stuff we see, it's not too surprising. Just as comics have come a long way since the Silver Age with how women are portrayed, let's hope things can continue to improve.
