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.

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!):
