    For one month I think DC should switch the male/female costume designs in all their titles. Wonder Woman would put on battle armor or something that shows no skin below the neck and Superman will put on knee high boots and skin tight biker shorts. Power Girl can wear her orange and white costume and Superboy will wear a skin tight wrestling leotard. And so on.

    Too many of the very vocal would freak. I can remember the comics forums when Warren Ellis wrote about Lois' desire to see Superman in biking shorts with coffee in his JLA: Classified arc. And, we didn't see any of that, it was a spoken insistence. Not that the same people had any complaints about Lois in negligee around the same time in another title, of course.

    That said, Alex Ross isn't a beekcake artist, but his photo-realistic style does mean he puts bulges on the superheroes and in one famous instant that was retouched by DC, made sure Commander Steel lived up to his name:

    Till this day I still can't figure out why people went crazy for this. It's not even like there's an over-exaggerated prominent bulge. I'm confused.

    That's what I mean about some of the craziness being awfully personally revealing. "Ooh, it's too big!" and theories of erections and all.

    In other words, you don't see the point.

    This thread needs more of the DCU's two hottest boys: Jim Lee draws a very sexy DG:






    I couldn't find the panel where Dinah walks in on Dick showering, but if you do, it is very much needed in this thread. :D

    And Jeremy Haun draws a very sexy Jason:





    A famous Jason derriere panel from Batman 649. Dick may have the best butt in the DCU, but this panel! :O And dem thighs!

    Funny Dick's butt gets so much play...its very nice, but the costume has a lot to do with it, too. Porportionally it isn't any different than a lot of heroes butts, but its a fandom thing I suppose to rail on about it.

    And yes, Jason, the thighs. Need more thighs everywhere.

    Kudos to the sexist and cheesy images of the alien male beefcake. What we need is more sleaze and tasteless stuff in the male department. And have the character be totally cool with it...

    Ha! There isn't and I'm not, but I'm sure to someone like you it's impossible that a straight man could start and participate in such a thread. Much in the same way you can't grasp what we're discussing here. The only way you'd understand if if someone had an erect penis in a cape on the cover.

    Not to break this into an art class, but if you look at the Steel picture every other aspect of it is pointing down to his crotch. The white stripe of his costume which normally stops at his blue briefs, the musculature of his lower half and THE STRETCHING OF BRIEFS TRYING TO CONTAIN IT!



    And you might want to ask yourself why you keep coming back to this thread considering you don't believe beefcake exists. It's just gonna be butts, bulges and general male nudity.

Balls which are actually missing from the Dick Grayson shot, so you just seeing a crotch, but the point is the same. Dick Grayson working out in briefs is just silly.
    How dare you! Naked Catman is absolutely necessary! Seriously, he's always drawn so pretty. I love Nicola Scott's version in particular. Not so muscled that he's gross (the overly body-builder look is a real turn-off for me), but just perfect.

    I don't mind naked woman, either. I just prefer them to be appropriately attired when they aren't naked (and drawn proportionately, no bizarre anatomically impossible "cheesecake" poses, etc.). If a character is invulnerable, I give them a lot more slack regarding skimpy uniforms, although it's still pretty silly when a uniform consists of few ribbons of fabric. But Huntress's "sexy" uniform makes me nuts. She doesn't have superpowers and there are important organs in your abdomen. Somebody cuts or shoots her abdominal aorta and it's all over. That Helena cares more about showing off her flat abs than staying alive annoys the hell out of me.

    George Perez went to *all* that trouble to correct the names and spelling of all the gods and goddesses in Wonder Woman's patheon and still no one gets it right.

    Hercules is Roman; Heracles is Greek. Get it right, people.
