But she was an Amazonian, so being scantily clad was their way, and in some ways, she's dressed more modestly than her real-life sisters. Heck, being topless in a loin cloth would be more normal, but I know why that makes no logical comic-sales sense. Anyway, if she wore pants, she'd be conforming to everyone around her telling her the way she dresses makes THEM uncomfortable. "I don't care about your cultural background, my son isn't used to seeing women in swimsuit attire out of a beach context, so I'm upset on his behalf! Waaaah!" I can't picture her giving a damn about the opinions of others. As for these guys wearing bras/other cover, mainstream society doesn't see anything wrong with a man's pectorals because they don't flop about ridiculously when in combat like a healthy woman's breasts would. As for skirts, they served the same purpose as a loin cloth that hangs by obscuring the form of the loins while still accentuating the beauty of the female form. Be glad the average comic outside Japan doesn't encourage the peekaboo panty shot…
... doesn't Cyborg wear robotic short-shorts anyway? 8|
Bruce's costume is ridiculous, I honestly can't even imagine a universe where Diana would wear that. Like I'm all for the whole "she punches people who call her outfits slutty" thing but whoever designed that costume needs to be punched more than anything.
comfort is unisex
it's just in public when that stuff gets weird
And fuck the societal norm... seriously.
u go guuuuuuuuuuuuuuurl
And many male superheroes have no pants:
-Namor just had and still has his scale-speedo
-Darkseid even wears his funny little Miniskirt
It got even stranger in the 80ies:
-He-man and almost every male character in MoU
-Lion-O and Company
+ all the conanesque Stuff that came into existence
-Dr. Manhatten was completely naked
And we are not even talking about those guys who wear only their crazy colored underwear and nylons (Batman, Superman,...) nor all those barechested dudes.
So, dont go the Tom Preston way
Green Lantern is all like ''Superman Istg I will punch you in the FACE, you jealous potato, I look amazing and you goddamn know it''
Flash looks like he's trying to calculate how fast he has to run for noone ever to see him like that
