Steve Englehart again. Some weird and unpleasant stories were written under his pen.
Doom & Gretchen

I'm surprised this story made it past the Comics Code Authority censors.

In case anyone doesn't know, there was in fact an ancient European tradition of nobles having the right to have sex with any virgin of their choosing in the territory they ruled, especially on the virgin's wedding night. It was called droit du seigneur in French, which is the same phrase Doom utters in the story referenced above. But no firm evidence exists of any noble actually exercising this right. I tend to think it would have caused him major problems, especially if the girls got pregnant.

I don't like this sort of thing appearing in comic books. But I'm a prude to that extent. I want my comics full of violence and utterly lacking in sex.
