    So you're saying that if Pym had killed Captain America in the same issue he backhanded Wasp, his reputation today would be much better?


Ha! It's funny you said that because I was actually going to say the same thing in my above post.

But I think even if Hank had killed Cap, he'd still have the "wife-beating" stigma for his assault on Jan anyway. Hank might have been out of his mind, but Janet wasn't. She was a concerned wife checking up on her husband and got back-handed for it.

This was different. This was an out-of-his-mind Cyclops attacking an equally out-of-her-mind Emma who had been, just pages earlier, talking about "burning down the world and starting from scratch." Referring to this sort of situation as "domestic abuse" is like referring to a 5th avenue brawl between Spider-Man and the Rhino as "jaywalking."
