Big Bertha: OK, sometimes even Marvel trips right over the line where bad and good taste meet. Big Bertha (real name Ashley Crawford) is/was a member of the Great Lakes Avengers, a group of second-stringers that has also included Dinah Soar, Mr. Immortal and Flatman. Bertha, a mutant, has the ability to make herself incredibly obese -- but can slim down again by vomiting all the excess fat (not even the Blob could do that). Girls and women get enough body image grief through the media, so I'm kind of glad that a superhero with super-bulimia never really took off. Trivia: She went on a date with Deadpool once and vomited after dinner because she thought he wanted her to be slender -- but he was attracted to her large self, instead.
