One of the few female versions I’ve seen that portray the strength of the characters instead of being a vehicle to show Cap with a midriff or Thor with tremendous cleavage.

I made this design in response to this article. Also, it was an excuse to draw Punk Storm and her majestic mohawk.
T-Shirts and Prints of this design are available on my RedBubble page:

*SCREAMING AND FLAILING!*
NO MORE HUBCAP BOOBS! I’m good with this!
Not a fan of the boots, but I’ll put up with them if it means we’ve seen the last of the metal boobsocks.
This is ridiculously cool

“There’s nothing wrong with cheesecake. But it’s not all we want to eat.”
“Yes there are tits. There is indeed ass. But for the first time, I get the sense that this is cheesecake that isn’t being aimed primarily at the male readers. There is a whole other demographic out there that loves reading about smart, sassy women who happen to be fantastically gorgeous without being objectified for the male gaze.”
Every time someone calls bullshit on all the concern trolls who came out of the woodwork over that kiss, I get a little extra spring in my step.
here’s the variant cover for fearless defenders. I am delighted that these days, I have lots of strong ladies to draw.

It’s a shame I can only put this book on my pull-list once.
This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female isn’t unusual for a book that isn’t defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it’s an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks — Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique — and still been all-female.
It’s hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it’s especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with “strong female characters.”
