With all the buzz surrounding Marvel’s The Avengers, you’ve probably seen Kevin Bolk’s Avengers Booty Ass-emble parody. It answers the question “what would happen if the male Avengers posed like the Black Widow in this piece of official promotional art?” Hilariousness happens — that’s what.
In fairness, The Hulk’s pose is exaggerated. Unfortunately, his is the only one. I own plenty of comics with ladies posing just like the rest the Widow’s teammates.
Anyways, this parody had inspired me to share some more of my favorite, funny, feminist superhero fan art.
You already know how I feel about Starfire’s reboot in Red Hood and The Outlaws. That’s why I was so thrilled to stumble upon Ashley R. Guillory’s gender-swapped redraw of Starfire. His name’s Manfire and I suppose someone out there is going to argue that his pose is totally natural.
I love Dresden Codak’s Why Cleavage is bad for Crime Fighting. I’ve always hated Power Girl’s costume. The suggestion that the chest hole symbolically represents her search for identity is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. The only thing it represents is one of the many things wrong with our society.
Which is your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
And if you know of any good feminist superhero fan art (or superhero fan art that promotes diversity of any kind) send us a link to JourneyintoAwesome at gmail dot com and we might include it next time!
