Avengers 200 is ridiculously tone-deaf. A woman is abducted, resists a seduction, has machines mind-control her into submitting to rape by the man who kidnapped her (an old enemy of the Avengers, by the way), gets pregnant from that rape, gives birth to her own rapist, is disgusted by her pregnancy and her child, watches that child grow into her adult rapist, and then gets a happily-ever-after ending with said rapist - and all her friends waved goodbye and felt great about it! If the writers really didn't see this as rape - what was wrong with them?
If there were two issues where the Avengers went completely off the rails, it was Avengers 200 (Carol's ordeal) and Avengers 213 (the infamous Hank Pym issue). Neither issue should have seen print.
