Y’see, how is a publisher supposed to know just what its female audience wants from a hero unless it asks them? So, here we find DC comics conducting a little audience research amongst its girl fans in a house ad from the mid-60s. How much notice was taken of the resulting deluge of hormonal desire I’m not sure, but one would like to think DC took appropriate steps to include more of what the women wanted.

For purely personal reasons I’m hoping that “Sophisticated Older Men” came out on top (as it were)…

But, at the same time, I’m all-too sorely aware that “Scruffy Comics Fan” doesn’t appear as an option. Oh, woe is me!
