Next week, Marvel revives another classic title as part of its 80th-anniversary celebration. This time it's Love Romances, featuring several different stories about, as you can probably guess, love and romance. But these are love stories, as the cover tells us, that can only be told in a comic book. And in this preview of one of the stories from next week's issue, a happy couple in a sci-fi future decide to transfer their consciousness into robots so that their love can last forever.
Things, er, don't go quite as planned. But that's neither here nor there, because what we found really interesting was the side benefit provided by a robot's lack of genitals: a reduction in workplace sexual harassment!
We can certainly think of several people from the comic book industry who could stand to have their consciousness transferred into the genital-less bodies of robots.
Love Romances #1 hits stores next Wednesday.
