Fox Report: Relaunched Comics Using Sex and Violence To Sell

This Fox news report recently "discover" that Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman comics are not meant for kids. 

Where have they been?   I hate to state the obvious, but I don't see under teen kids buying these comics and did they just notice this?

What's funny is that they compared Starfire from the Teen Titans cartoon to the modern Starfire, as seen in RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #1.  If they had done their research, they would know that the Marv Wolfman and George Perez's Starfire had always been a sexual figure (yes, down to the Vampirella-esque outfit).  When the character was marketed to children, under the NEW TEEN TITANS: DRUG ISSUE #1 (Jun 1983), DC Comics did their best and covered up her front.

If parents are concerned about these Teen-Rated comics, DC does publish Tiny Titans and other kids-friendly titles (but of course the report didn't even bother mentioning them).

Watch this for yourself:
