We’ve known for years that many current superhero comic creators think that marriages equal death for characters. “It takes away options to have girlfriends get jealous and upset feelings over broken dates,” they whine. So now, they’ve just made it literal. They’re warning boys that if they get married, although they get sex out of it, they’ll turn into a different person (with no foreshadowing) and then die, and it will be the woman’s fault.
It’s fear of commitment made literal as only superhero comics can do it.
