Kick in the Crotch Month, Day 1: Attack of the world's tiniest foot

As Dean Martin (sorta) sang:
How lucky can one guy be
I kissed her and she kissed me
Like the fella once said
Ain't that a kick in the crotch?
Yes, it's Kick in the Crotch Month! Join us every day all through May when we celebrate yet another one of comics' lowest blows! (Readers of a nervous disposition may wish to wear an athletic protector.)

No, Bandette, no!

The final panel intrigues me. The sound effect implies that we are seeing the kick at the moment of contact. Black Widow is obviously putting all she has into the kick. But her tiny foot does not sink into her assailant's crotch, not even an inch. This can only mean that the bad guy is wearing the iron jockstrap to end all iron jockstraps--and Black Widow has a broken foot.

Credit Where It's Due Dept.: "Acuñ" should be "Acuña".
