If male superheroes dressed like the womenJuly 28, 2012
The Escher Girls tumblr has become one of my regular stops for entertaining mockery of comic book art. Our RPG chronicles like Vampire and Werewolf feature plenty of female characters, none of which I could ever imagine doing the scantily-clad broken-spine poses. Today I found of one those turn-the-tables posts, putting some men in superhero costumes that are more reminiscent of the heroines.
I’m glad at least Spider-Man was brave enough to do the butt attack pose, although the commenters pointed out the telling lack of thongs. Well, in fairness, for most of them we just don’t know. The dudes are in good shape!
Was it this bad back when we were buying comic books? Probably, yeah.
