* Kang tries to do this with JessicaJones in ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'', and learns that it's a bad idea to threaten a pregnant woman with ''superpowers'' when she kicks the {{BFG}} out of his hands and points it at him. ** Sounds like Jessica Jones went from PregnantHostage to PregnantBadAss in one swing! * In the second issue of the 2011 series of ''SuicideSquad'', it is revealed that the MacGuffin the Squad is sent into the stadium to retrieve is a pregnant woman. Although, this being ''Suicide Squad'', all is not as it seems.

It seems to be a law of TV and film land, that any hostage situation will include at least one [[ObviousPregnancy heavily pregnant woman]]. This can either be used to show how inhuman the hostage takers are by having them use her as greater leverage, or to show them in a better light by having them treat her with compassion. If she's more than eight months, she'll probably go into labor, and give birth to a healthy baby with the help of a nearby know-it-all kid, med-school dropout or, if they're really lucky, an off-duty nurse. Or maybe even one of the hostage takers. The PanickyExpectantFather will rarely be held hostage with her, and may even be with the police constantly telling them "My Wife's in there!".
