Popular culture has had issues with women for, oh, several thousand years or more. So, we're not exactly blowing everyone's minds by pointing out that even to this day, women tend to get depicted as trophies or sex toys for the male hero. But, comics really do inhabit their own category here -- if not in the storylines, then just in the frankly ludicrous way females are drawn.

In New York last week, I met a beautiful art model named Carin, who wore a wisp of silk as if it were a complete shirt. I guess that's what happens when you spend most of your day nude — a whisper of a cami starts to look modest. One of her current gigs is a sculpting class, for which she holds the same pose three hours every Tuesday afternoon. If you're an artist but you can't make it to any of Carin's classes, you still don't have to resort to porn to find a model. The models represent a variety of body types, mostly nude, all female. They pose on a lazy Susan so the photographer can spin them around and get pictures from several angles. If you can't find the pose you have in mind, ask — they'll create it for you. Unfortunately, the photos lack one essential quality that Carin brings to her sessions: Life. The models hold their poses, sure, but they convey no sense of motion, no small vibration or twitch from the act of breathing. No heartbeat.

The all-nude fight scene has been a staple of literature since Eve asked Adam to bite into the fruit of knowledge and Adam said, "Make me. We like nudity, AND we like fighting. Back in the really old days, when the Youtube was called "actual Roman gladiators," naked fighting was literally the "bread" in "bread and circuses. What matters is that a snarling knock-down-drag-out is better when the delicate goodies are in play, and never more so than when superpowers are involved.
