WARNING: Pictures of Scantily Clad Women
I could pretty much use one word to describe most superheroine costumes. Ridiculous. So imagine you’re about to go fight some nasty bad guys and you need to put on a disguise. So what do you choose? How about a swimsuit. Like Wonder Woman and these other heroines:
Scarlet Witch (Marvel)
Ms. Marvel (Marvel)
Black Canary (DC) And what better way to add to the swimsuit effect than fishnet tights? I can barely wear tights to church without ripping them. I can’t imagine trying to fight crime with them on.
And if I were doing heroic stunts, I’d probably aslo at least want to cover up my stomach. I don’t know. Just a thought.
Emma Frost (Marvel) Sadly, this is one of her more modest outfits.
Lets not forget about wearing skirts while fighting crime. Especially if you fly or grow to a giant size.
Arrowette (DC) Bare stomach and skirt. Good idea.
Now to be fair there are some reasonable outfits out there. Like these:
Black Widow (Marvel)
Invisible Woman (Marvel)
Bumble Bee (DC)
So, it seems to me that Marvel has more reasonable costumes than DC. But to be fair, I tend to be a little biased toward Marvel in most things. Basically what I’m saying though is that a lot of the women out there fighting crime in comic books are horribly dressed for what they’re trying to do. Unlike most of their male counterparts, they’re not at all protected by their costumes. As you can tell I kind of prefer the jumpsuit look. It can be sexy while still being reasonable. Just my thoughts on it all.
And while we’re talking about fashion, let’s all take a moment to admire the original Batwoman’s purse, which contained all her beauty product themed crime fighting gadgets.
On the bright side, most of the heroines don’t wear capes. We know how Edna (Incredibles) feels about capes.
