A lot of artwork these days seems straight from a torture porn movie: sexual violence against women, covers showing women in demeaning poses, an increase in bondage-like art. It's getting very creepy.
Ms. Marvel #32:
Come on, a helpless woman, bound, dressed only in her underwear, being electrocuted in a panel that gives us a wide view of her breasts and crotch. How is this not meant to titilate? I'm amazed they forgot to gag her, though.
Notice again how the panel showing her arm being crushed is composed: before looking at the falling hammer, which I presume is the point of interest of the panel, our eyes are led to glimpse at her perky tits first.
Bondage and dominatrixes are also quite popular:
I know the X-Men have a history of bondage since Claremont, but it's never too late to start amending things. There's no point in continuing to indulge in this. Surely artists can come up with new designs for evil, powerful women.
Do you have other examples? Do you disagree?
