I'm sorry but I strongly disagree with this statement... Wonder Woman showing some skin is not the problem and never was, after all there are male superheroes that shows as much as her, if not even more. The problem is the sexualization of her figure; Hulk goes arround with almost no clothes, but is not an object, not just a sex selling thing. To ilustrate my point, here is wonder woman with no pants latimesherocomplex.files.wordp… and here is she with pants xmer.files.wordpress.com/2010/… ...is not matter of her clothes, but how she is portrayed. I know clothing is actually part of the issue, and you can tell by looking at Powergirl, I just saying that if you attack a problem where there is non, you lose energy in solve something that wasn't broken, and trying to "fix it" with the wrong resourses (that's why the "pants" Wonder Woman is a failure, she shows less skin but still in a sexualized way) and also you don't pay attention where a rea problem is.

Even more, the creator of Wonder Woman was a progresist feminist that thougt women were the future of humankind, and even so he made her with a short skirt, but a bad ass attitude.

Amazing woman wants to wear pants, but creators don't want - your one of them satisfied so she can wear the pants and be a hero instead of a sexy model

Since I've praised so many of your pieces, I think I can be forgiven for slapping my forehead over this uninspired bit of cliche and callowly trendy faux victimhood.  You have always done so much better in all your other Deviantart pieces!

I'd like to see Wonder Woman try to complain about her outfit to Namor, Robin, The Hulk, Colossus, The Spectre, The Thing, The Martian Manhunter, Hercules, Black Condor, He-Man, to name a few -- as well as The Silver Surfer, The Swamp-Thing, and Doctor Manhattan and the Silver Surfer -- but that would make it clear how silly this costume complaint has been!

Now, if she'd complained about the odiously sexist body poses in which female superheroes are drawn . . .

It's actually BOTH factors (scanty clothing and sexy posing) that makes this trend so terrible. All those scantily clad male superheroes you mentioned are never posed in suggestive, sexy poses; I can't recall the last Hulk issue cover that had him bent over impossibly to emphasize his crotch and muscles while making orgasmic faces. Also, nobody is saying showing flesh is bad, but you need to look at female and male superhero costumes side by side and see that bare chests with rippling muscles is hardly the same thing as suggestive straps across the breasts: one is meant to convey power and force, the other to titillate and arouse. And all those male superheroes you mentioned are more exceptions than anything, with their costumes usually making sense in context (Namor is underwater, a bunch of those guys are invulnerable, etc). A big complaint is how the DEFAULT for female comic book characters is a sexy/revealing costume. Doesn't matter if the woman in question is shy and bookish or has no business baring skin due to the environment, she's going to be sexed up due to women being objectified.

Funny, it might be appropriate for the "male artists" to protest back by ceasing production of female comic book characters.  See if that settles this monsoon of cognitive dissonance and fractured thinking.

The great majority of comic artists are male. Well I always say, better not do it if you're going to do it wrong. I couldn't care less if they were to stop making all their female characters like that. It's stupid.

I love how Aquaman admits to having some crappy costumes in his run. Honestly I don't know why people were so against Wonder Woman's Pants. They don't saying anything about Batman changing his costume like ever year, but the moment Diana loses her leotard the entire world has an issue.

I think that the costume was not marketed well... and i would have ditched the 80's jacket all together. 

Had they introduced her with pants in the new 52, I think it would have been received better. Then again, I love the new WW in her own book. The artwork is kinetic and bold. I don't give a hoot about the pants when I read that book. :) it's only when every panel has her in broke back pose that I take issue.
