So a while ago, I saw the “debate” that happened when Marvel let loose the famous variant cover of SpiderWoman.
And a part of me was like, “You know, it would be great to see superhero ladies in clothes that are actually great for combat and/or aren’t form-fitting.”
Because I am aware that not every superhero lady is in charge of her sexuality or is entirely comfortable with a skin-tight outfit. Have you read the new Ms. Marvel? They talk about that in the first two issues!
Anyway, I decided to make an illustration series showing superhero ladies in outfits that weren’t sexually revealing and/or were best suited for lots of physical activity.
Right now it’s still a work in progress, but it’s been fun to create new heroes and create costumes and superpowers!
Here are some sketches of the ladies I’ve drawn so far:
I have enough projects on my plate to keep me busy, so right now this is on hold (just like my other illustration series, The Women Warriors Project).
I might include redesigns of Marvel/DC/etc superheroes, but I want to do more original characters in this series. If you have any ideas or suggestions, though, please leave them in comments!
Thanks and I’ll see you on Tuesday.
