UDPATED: Slurs and graphic descriptions of sex acts are littered throughout "The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With," which has recently disappeared from James Gunn's personal website.

A blog post written by James Gunn -- the filmmaker handpicked by Disney-owned Marvel Studios to rewrite and direct its upcoming superhero blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy -- has been removed from the Internet amid building outrage over comments in it perceived to be sexist and homophobic.

Posted originally to jamesgunn.com, Gunn's official website, on Feb. 17, 2011, the story titled "The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With: 2nd Annual Poll Results" has since gone missing from the site but continues to exist on Google cache.
