    Identity crisis (for me) will forever be the most disturbing comic ever made. I liked the comic but its so dark at the same time

    The one where Penguin killed his pets was pretty creepy. Also when he stabbed his girlfriend.

    Superman being brainwashed to make a porno reminds me of an episode of this old Adult Swim show called _Stoker and Hoop,_ where the detective main characters try to stop a porn magnate from hypnotizing people into appearing in his movies, only to get hypnotized themselves.

    For the record, Joker shot Barbera, stripped her naked, then photographed her in her injured, paralyzed state. But did he REALLY sexually assault her? Personally, I'm not really sure.

    Please. Marvel making Jessica Jones an abused sex slave to the Purple Man just "to make her interesting" then pulling SJW garbage to justify it makes most of this list *tame* in comparison.
    But hey.. don't let facts get in the way of pandering to MCU fanbois and fangurls, right, WatchMojo?!?!?

    I love how the "women in fridges " thing is seen as soo bad... I mean doing it poorly or over in over in the same book is just a matter of bad writing. But showing that there is fallout of getting entangled with killers that can effect your family or loved ones? Thats bad?
    And as lampshaded by once upon a deadpool . No one cries fould about the death of say fathers ( not to mention mentors) as a motivating factor in action stories and comics.

    Also the Comedian physically assaulted and attempted to rape silk specter... but was stopped the video makes it sound like it was otherwise

    DC should put this darkness at the movies instead of trying to copy MCU

    • OldSchool
      OldSchool 5 months ago

      Ana Alves They did. Watchmen was made into a movie and showed the scene of Rorschach killing that guy who murdered the little girl. It didn't receive too good at the box office. Probably because not too many people who don't read comics knew about Watchmen. And it was before superhero movies became so popular.

    michael hawkins 5 months ago

    You guys do have to admit that whether or not you do actually believe in the "women in refrigerators" troupe, Gail Simon really did rely to heavily on the women characters dying for Kyle Rayner troupe. I mean the alien ex-cop woman killing herself because Kyle reminded her of how she used to be a green lantern? Seriously?🤨 The people who killed themselves in Bird Box had a better excuse.

  • Abdullah the village idiot Afzal

    Didn't they do this like 7 years ago?

  • DarkWolfPack012
    DarkWolfPack012 5 months ago

    Why does everyone think joker assaulted Barbra? He stripped her down and took pictures. There's nothing the even suggests that he did anything else.

    • Fandom Trash
      Fandom Trash 5 months ago

      DarkWolfPack012 that’s still sexual assault. He stripped which is a form of violation; which would have have to of included him touching her body and took naked photos of her without her consent

  • Sipho Silimela-SHEEPOANIME

    How about that Joker killed Commissioner Gordon’s Wife(?) in front of all those babies

    Why do people still call the trope "Women in fridges" when it was changed to "Stuffed in the fridge"?. I can name a few male characters whose death inspired another character to take action. Uncle Ben, Jason Todd, Krillin from DragonBall (Twice)etc. I know there are many more male examples too.

  • Andrew Cutler
    Andrew Cutler 5 months ago

    How come Robin dying isn’t a “man in a fridge”? Oh right, it’s only bad if it’s a woman. Got it, Watchmojo.

    • Fandom Trash
      Fandom Trash 5 months ago

      Andrew Cutler you clearly are stupid. The woman in a fridge is talking about a trope that women who are mostly just wives or girlfriends with no little to no character development are constantly killed off in order to serve the male characters storyline. It’s boring and lazy story writing. Jason Todd being killed is not the same because he was a developed character with an independent storyline. No one is staying women characters can’t be killed off, but many are killed of needlessly and lazily

  • Haywired
    Haywired 5 months ago

    It must be weird for kids who are targeted by DC to get into Batman with all the seemingly innocent cartoons, toys, Lego, pajamas, duvet covers, etc. when they discover how fucked-up the main source material is... I'm glad DC doesn't own the rights to A Serbian Film. They'd probably try and sell A Serbian Cartoon to kids...

  • Jordan Tate

    Heroes in Crisis should have an honourable mention. A story marketed as a story focusing on mental health that actually has very little good representation of the topic and instead sees our favourite heroes being murdered for seeking help. Not a great message in any sense.
