    ..Killgrave the Purple Man is now a character who can only be used in certain circumstances after Alias established him as a mind-controller who gets off on sexually humiliating female superheroes. There have been one or two Marvel head-grabbers who've gone part of the way down that route before (e.g. Mesmero) but not as far. Now whenever he appears in a book with a female hero the writer has to explain why she's still wearing clothes and not sitting on his lap.


He was sort of a rapist anyways...his daughter the Purple Girl happened because he manipulated a woman into sleeping with and marrying him.

On a side note...it was implied heavily in New Thunderbolts he also raped/sexually assaulted Andreas Strucker aka Swordsman with his powers.

Andreas narration captions say "especially after what was done to me. What he MADE me do...after a lifetime of debauchery, how can I justify feeling debased?" and the picture is a shirtless Purple Man with a wine glass.


Another issue had the Purple Man ordering the Swordsman to lick his shoes.

So Purple Man apparently is an equal opportunity rapist.

    Perhaps change this by having his powers transferred to a woman?


He has a daughter with the same pigment and powers...but I thought they killed her off. She was in Alpha Flight when it got really lame.
