While browsing one of my favorite blogging sites, I found a few pictures I thought would be interesting to include on our class blog. They depict male superheroes as though they were female. Some of them, in my opinion, were drawn very tastefully, and exactly what you would think the "female" version would look like (without being objectified or sexualized). Some of them, however, seem extremely sexualized and barely clothed.
The versions of Batman, Superman, Captain America, Spiderman, and a few of the others are mostly just wearing the same costume as the men with breasts and slightly different muscles. Some of the other ones, like Green Lantern, are barely covered.
I'm not really sure why these superwomen were drawn, but they are very interesting to think about. Why wasn't Wonder Women drawn like this female version of Superman? Why wasn't Batwoman drawn like this version?
One could argue that their actual costumes give them a different identity than just the female version of said superhero. However, could their costumes have been drawn similarly to these -- as in, not provocative? Most likely. These depictions are quite interesting, though. What do you all think?
