Well, whoever drew it is certainly talented: not sure what the big fuss is, but they're nice at least.
Sucide Squad I think it was the first trade not sure thou, but Harley Quinn had some real clothes on, and damn did she look good. The poster is close to what she was wearing, but instead of the brown shorts and that jacket it was jean daisy dukes (look it up) and a flannel vest.Mcoffey said:Remember when Harley Quinn wore a red and black jumpsuit? Or clothes at all, apparently...?
4th post in... I wondered how many posts it'd be before someone made a comment like that. My guess was 3 posts, I was only one off.ritchards said:
Exposed navels aside, most of these wouldn't be out of line for 40's era ad posters [http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Vm_qtULtkdM/UVHK3yxyh7I/AAAAAAAARmk/xMS9SwUM2uo/s640/enter-the-strange-world-of-vintage-lingerie-ads.jpeg]:Risingblade said:Did pin up poster girls from the 40's really show off that much skin?
Fair point. That seemed like the creator poking gentle fun at Supergirl's character concept ("It's Superman, only for [em]girls![/em]"), and mocking the condescending attitudes prevalent during that time period.NotThePANTSU said:Also distancing them from being mere gender-swapped counterparts kind of falls flat when you feel the need to tell everyone that Supergirl is: "related to the world's most super man". Is being super in her own right not enough?
They aren't bad looking. And I've seen official and fan art that is way more explicit. But this was released not too long ago.ritchards said:
the heart of wonder woman's issues as a character. She's here to prove the power of women or be an example of a woman being a superhero not JUST a heroine doing super things.NotThePANTSU said:For me Black Canary, HawkGirl, Poison Ivy, and Wonder Woman are the best of the bunch but doesn't "She can do it!" seem rather patronising?
Totally agree. The only one I found any way appealing was Black Canary. Really feels like wack off material. Showing way too much skin and they have the anatomy of any terrible cheesecake picture.ritchards said:
