Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The second Wasp, Nadia Pym, starts out with a deep dislike for Spider-Man, unable to go a single issue without insulting him in some way. It's hard to let this slide, because not only is she sweet and kind to everyone else (even ''ComicBook/DoctorDoom''), but we're never given a solid reason as to why she seems to [[IrrationalHatred hate him]] so much.

* WhatAnIdiot: Avengers 317. Iron Man informs the Avengers that an orbe in the ship has been bobby-trapped to explode if it is touched by anyone except Nebula. The Avengers split up and search for it, aware that they must touch it. Spider-Man finds it first.\\
'''You'd expect:''' That Spider-Man would call the others and then figure out what to do next.\\
'''Instead:''' Spider-Man tries to grab the orb with his webs. If he does not touch it, he should be fine, right? NO!

** The series' guest actors sometimes provoke this as well. The most extreme example is probably "The Superlative Seven," which guest-stars a youthful, pre-fame Creator/DonaldSutherland, Charlotte Rampling, and Creator/BrianBlessed all in a single episode!

Added DiffLines:

** Diana Rigg's SpyCatsuit is quite famous, even if she switched to a less {{Fanservice}}y one so she could actually do her stunts.


Added DiffLines:

* UnbuiltTrope: Emma Peel is one of the codifiers for the SpyCatsuit. And yet she switched to a practical one rather quickly, and even so it still looks more like something a biker would actually wear.


Added DiffLines:

* ValuesResonance: Both Cathy Gale and Emma Peel were treated as equals to Steed - presumably because Cathy's early episodes were originally written for Dr King and {{Gender Flip}}ped when he left. In episodes, both Steed and his female partner would alternately save each other.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Maria Hill may be the biggest example of one in the MarvelUniverse. Even her actress in the films happily referred to her as 'the biggest bitch in the Marvel Universe'. She's the woman who tried to arrest ''Captain America'' for reasons she wouldn't be able to arrest him for, going out of her way to sabotage others to get ahead, and generally being a jerk to everyone she meets while her competence as a SHIELD director leaving much to be desired. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Her actions in]] ''ComicBook/SecretAvengers'' [[WhatTheHellHero do not]] [[KickTheDog help with this]]. ''However'', a good number of fans ''do'' sympathise with her, especially thanks to her CharacterDevelopment under Fraction's pen in ''Iron Man'' and the handling by MarkWaid in his ''Hulk'' work, and a number point out that Nick Fury is generally given a free pass for similar stunts while she gets derided [[note]]which, again, her actress acknowledges, pointing out the DoubleStandard of how when a guy does something cruel and morally questionable, he's a badass, but when a woman does it, she's just a bitch[[/note]]; not to mention, her clear guilt during ''Secret Avengers'' helps to at least humanize her and make it clear she's not OK betraying Mockingbird or Hulk (but not Daisy; she's happy screwing over Daisy).
