What's the deal with the 'sidekick' thing? Why is that bad?

I thought it would be kind of a universal insult (if you weren't a sidekick), each member of a team is meant to be equals here. Sidekicks aren't common in this situation. Usually people of a similar level are paired up, and then given a trainer.

Maybe being thought of as the underling or trainee for someone else if they aren't is something any superhero would carefully try to avoid.

From Evilyn's point of view, Tabitha is a less powerful hero (so far), and a hero with less training. Being called Tabitha's sidekick implies that Evilyn is lesser than her, that Tabitha herself is experienced enough to mentor others, and that Tabitha is someone Evilyn admires enough to become their sidekick.
