Justice League of Wonder (Wo)Men

Posted by Grey Sunday, August 7, 2011

We have seen enough twists and turns for the pants-or-pants-less sage of Wonder Woman on the way to DC's groundbreaking "New 52" initiative. It's a matter of time before someone snapped to strip the entire Justice League of theirs.

In the shadow of the ongoing debate over DC Comics's purported misogyny in their choice of female creators, Kelly Turnbull, the creator behind the popular webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, threw another sneaky shot at DC.

In response to DC's The Source Blog's unveiling of David Finch’s variant cover for Justice League #1, Turnbull produced a parody version of the same cover in a hilarious protest to what she perceived as overtly sexy, feminine pose by Wonder Woman in the cover.

WONDER WOMAN’S NEW COSTUME LOOKS DUMB!

Ugh, now she doesn’t have pants like how it used to be? What is wrong with you, DC?

WE WANT DC TO LISTEN TO US!

Ugh, they acknowledged but they’re not doing it right

WE WANT WOMEN FRONT AND CENTER ON COMICS!

Ugh you’re not drawing them right

I don’t think anything DC does at this point will satisfy anyone. I agree DC has mishandled some things but I also think that we’re reaching a point of just complaining about any and every little thing.

The point of contention still is, as it always was, that people are getting tired of seeing all of the female leads drawn with body language and uniforms that make them appear less heroic, powerful, legitimate, and all-around able to be taken seriously than their male counterparts.


And here's the David Finch’s variant cover in question.

On other, relatively mundane Justice League news, Ivan Reis have come up with a cool rendition of the new-and-improved Justice League for the official poster for the upcoming New York Comic Con scheduled to be held October 13th - 16th.

Oh, and no sexy feminine pose in this one.
