Wouldn't it be great to date a comic book hottie, to finally be able to go out with a flesh and blood version of the ink and paper super babes you've been pining over since your adolescent years? Sure it would, unless you picked the wrong one. Not every babe in a cape and cowl would make a good girlfriend. Quite the contrary. Some of them would make outright rotten love interests. In honor of Valentine's Day, a day dedicated to true love and romantic union, we've come up with a list of the top five female comic book characters you should never date (presuming you got the chance through some miracle of science or more likely, the bestowal of a magical ring or other mystical artifact).
This buxom super heroine is every nerd's dream, but for all practical purposes she'll have to remain just that. Being Superman's cousin, Power Girl's essentially the busty, female equivalent of the Man of Steel. So, unless you've got the stamina of The Flash and the muscle mass of a juiced up Bane (or a bed sprinkled with flakes of Kryptonite), there's no hope of satisfying her in the sack or even surviving a sexual encounter without ending up in a hospital bed. It really makes you wonder how Lois Lane continues to have nuptials with Clark Kent.
The last thing you want in a healthy relationship is a controlling partner. As such, the one time White Queen of the Hellfire Club turned X-Man, Emma Frost is high up on the no-date list. The sultry telepath has a lengthy track record of using her mutant powers to manipulate or literally control her enemies, allies and even lovers. Furthermore, if you're the jealous type, you'd eventually tire of seeing Ms. Frost parade around in attire that would make a fem dom blush.
She's great for a one night stand, but this libidinous magister of the explosive arts has a very fragile psyche and an incredible temper. What she lacks in clothing she makes up for in pure, psychotic rage. The moment you made her unhappy, she'd blow you to pieces, and not in a way you're hoping.
