The Olympics are over and this video is a little old, but I thought I’d share:
You may remember Jenna Marbles from her video on how to trick people into thinking you’re hot. And talking to her dog.
Because I’m a big fucking nerd, as I watched Jenna’s take down of “Ponytail” I couldn’t help but relate her comments to super hero bewbs. For the past few weeks, we’ve seen amazing physical feats of athleticism from people of all shapes and sizes. The body types of athletes are as varied as the countries represented in the games. Yet when we turn to our super hero comics, we see one or two body types. I hope that maybe the games could serve as a reminder to artists that physical athleticism comes from a variety of body types. The Flash should never be as muscularly drawn as Superman.
Back to super hero bewbs. It’s perfectly fine for a super hero to have double Ds, but when fighting crime, they should probably be reined in. Sports bras somehow don’t exist in the super hero world which must be terribly annoying for the ladies. Breasts swing around when you’re in motion. When you’re fighting, they can throw off your timing. Why the hell would you let them flap around in the wind like that? Super hero sports bras should be standard issue to every super hero lady out on patrol. You can still draw them with large breasts when they’re not kicking ass. A lot of comics these days feature pages and pages and pages and pages of just talking. They don’t need to be in their fighting uniforms for the exposition. But when it’s time to suit up, get those breasts in check. You’d think with all the emphasis on realism and grittiness these days, the sports bra would fit in there somewhere.
