Thanks DC, for giving me inspiration to start blogging again! How could I not with this upcoming reboot and its costume revamps?
I think someone better at actual looking at society writing stuff could make a pretty sweet essay out of this. All of the men in full coverage bodysuits, Superman is showing the most male skin and that’s just hands and his face, while Wonder Woman, the only woman on the team, is going to fall out of her strapless top that leaves her shoulders and chest completely bare? There is some kind of talking point about sexualization and male gaze there. And there is a point about my searing hatred of strapless tops, the point is, they are not for crime fighting in!! Props to Jim Lee for drawing her in the same basic pose as all the dudes though, instead of her looking like she’s in a Maxim shoot while they’re all looking tough. The guys all look pretty decent, not sure how the other artists will like drawing in all the seaming lines, but I actually kind of miss Superman’s red underpants now that they are gone.
