From Journey Into Mystery #105, published in June, 1964: Genius scientist Giant-Man and her glamorous girlfriend the Wasp take off in a manner befitting a duo of sizechangers. But why she gotta be like that?
So — first she whines because the superpowers that her boyfriend gave her just aren’t enough, he should also get her the insect equivalent of a car. And when he gives her exactly what she asked for, she complains that all she got was a lousy flying ant, she should get some candy and bling-bling instead. (Never mind that she’s a filthy rich heiress who’s never worked a day in her life.)
And of course, all this is ages before this very same boyfriend suffers a terrible nervous breakdown, develops a split personality and assumes a new costumed identity. He then proposes to her. She’s the only one who knows that this new suitor is, in fact, her old boyfriend, who is now obviously extremely fucked up. So what does she do when faced with this irrefutable evidence of his mental illness? She lets him do all this instead of getting him some immediate medical assistance just so that she can marry him.
Domestic violence is fucking horrible, sure, but honestly? It’s no wonder that Hank eventually popped her one.
