I wasn't entirely sure what to write about, especially for my first post, so I went on google and typed in superheroines to see what came up. I found an article called "Top Ten Skimpiest Superheroine Costumes" at this link: http://www.bamkapow.com/top-ten-skimpiest-superheroine-costumes-602-p.html. When I thought of superheroines while I was growing up, I thought of someone who was supposed to be a role model; someone strong, intelligent, and clever. I never knew much about them, but I thought they would be someone I could look up to. After starting this class, and reading this article, I see that superheriones were more used as just more pleasure for men. They wear hardly any clothing, or in some cases simply no clothes at all. The Savage She-Hulk's outfit, number ten on the list, covers a lot compared to the other nine heroines on the list. Supergirl's outfit isn't horrible either, but her skirt is a little short. Fire and The Engineer are both naked. Tigra, Shanna the She-Devil, and Red Sonja are all wearing what look like really skimpy bathing suits. The top three skimpiest outfits on the list, Witchblade, Vampirella, and War Woman, can hardly be considered outfits at all. It is disgusting how superheroine outfits are designed so they can be "sold".
