In this comic we see the female stereotypes that are pervasive in the 1994 series. What is important is that Bazooka Joe's girlfriend, Zena, is chacterized as an extremely unintelligent woman. Given her position as a companion to the protagonist in the series, the comic makes the statement that women rise to high societal positions by being vacuous people. Also note that female hierarchy is based on male companionship, another stereotypical ideal.
