Equal Opportunity Objectification Means Super-Sexy Male Superhero Covers

In an effort to turn the sexist tables, a website covering all things comic books has created a batch of mock covers objectifying male characters. And, well, let’s just say we would be much more inclined to get into comics if this style was adopted more in the art form.

The comic book industry has a reputation of being largely controlled by straight, nerdy men. Without raising a finger to actually substantiate the stereotype, it sounds true.

That has a pretty direct and obvious impact on the way artists draw female characters.

And while the creator of the below faux covers doesn’t have a problem with sexiness per se, it’s more of an inequality issue. Female characters seem to always get the pinup treatment, and male characters never do.

Check out the scintillating covers below:

Sexy-Captain-America-4fe3f

Sexy-Wolverine-75a4b

Sexy-Punisher-Cover-9ce17

Sexy-Thor-8e15c

Sexy-Nova-d789e

Sexy-New-Avengers-f8f1a

Sexy-Iron-Man-1b938

Sexy-Spider-Man-06e34

Sexy-Guardians-2dbc5

Sexy-Morbius-8633f

What’s even crazier is that the images were all pulled from a ’90’s Super Hero Swimsuit Edition, which we had no idea existed.

Here are some more images that weren’t used for the above batch of covers (yes please!):
