Parting Shot: The Justice League — Without Pants
The two final covers for the Justice League of America #1 relaunch have been released at The Source, featuring the return to Wonder Woman’s swimsuit-style costume from from her previous redesign with full pants. While I tend to think shorts are a better sartorial choice for the Amazonian warrior, turnabout is still fair play, so I couldn’t help but be amused by this Photoshop by CA reader Mario Pieda imagining the rest of the JLA — sans pants.
Do you see now, DC? Do you see how stupid, how unmodern a speedo looks on a modern-day superhero? BRING BACK HER PANTS. — Ryking
Why does everyone care about the pants or not? Honestly, I’d not have noticed the guys were pantsless, given how tight their pants generally are. If we’re going to focus on the issue of her attire, let’s focus on the fact that her breasts would fall out of that bustier in about half a second with the slightest movement, and about the fact that leather, or pleather or whatever, is going to give her swamp crotch and fucking chafe.
Honestly, the bikini bottom is far more practical for range of movement.
In fact, I like the idea that she not wear pants—the guys don’t, either (they wear tights) and there is nothing inherently badass or empowering about pants, especially if they are used as a symbol of machismo.
Everyone secretly yearns to go without pants. Admit it. ;)
