Perhaps--but I don't think he was significantly more disrespected than the others. Wasp and Hawkeye are frequently dismissed as being too weak, despite their long stints as leaders and their proven capability. Hank Pym's track record comes back to bite him fairly often in terms of being respected.

I agree--but this could give them more ammo in terms of bashing Simon's character. For other readers who like Simon but aren't big fans, or who are more neutral in their feelings about Simon, it *could* potentially hurt their opinion of him.
I'm not saying this story IS a bad thing for the character--I'm just saying that for some people it could hurt his rep.

Yes, but he never was racially biased against her--he didn't see her as black. As Eric put it, she is "the purest white I've ever seen". She may be offended by his racist attitudes towards others, but he never held those attitudes towards her.
