I am deeply disturbed at how women are portrayed in comics. Even the most badass female characters have an impossibly huge chest and are usually posing so that her back is arched in order to display said chest.
It makes sense that these ample breasts were popular back when comics were a boys only affair (or so they thought…) but nowadays with more and more female readers, it’s just unnecessary.
No wonder women are seen as objects and not people. I cannot begin to recount the number of times I’ve seen female characters reclining during a fight scene so that the viewer can ogle her tits and narrow waist. Or even worse, twist in an impossible manor so that we have a perfect view of T and A.
The most recent offence is the Avengers poster given out at the midnight release. It depicts all of the male stars in top fighting form, ready to strike. But for some reason, Black Widow, one of the few female characters in the movie, is twisted to show her ample backside.
Don’t even get me started on the tight leather uniform that is so necessary for any female superhero to wear (although, male heroes wear them too to showcase their muscles, but interestingly not their packages which remain “average”…).
The exploding breasts of these characters are laughable. I sometimes wonder how the artists came up with the idea to make certain characters so well-endowed when it has nothing to do with their character development.
It takes away from the characters to have their breasts be so large. They are seen as a pair of floating tits and not as complex (or not so complex) characters who have the ability to save the world or get the bad guy. Female characters aren’t taken seriously because of this.
I just wonder how these women mange to stay upright let alone get in a right hook or a swing of a weapon. Cut to years from now when these characters are old and bent-backed from all that time trying to hold up her breasts.
Artists; please be more realistic about the dimensions of the human body. We all know you have issues with your penis, so piss off.
