WHY BIG SUPERHERO MUSCLES AREN’T ‘THE SAME THING’ AS SEXY CURVES

By Andrew Wheeler

As a man who reads superhero comics, I confess that I share a commonly-held prurient interest in big-chested, long-legged heroes in skin-baring costumes that barely cover their naughty bits — or as I like to call him, Namor.

Sadly, Namor is pretty much alone in his category. Contrary to the perception that male heroes in comics are frequently sexually objectified, it’s my experience that even Namor is only rarely presented as someone to lust over. Yet I’m fortunate that my tastes run towards the Hemsworth end of the scale. Like many straight men, I admire the kind of buff dudes that are the staple of superhero comics, even though they are rarely sexualized. If I shared the tastes of most of the women I know, I think I’d find superhero comics an even more frustratingly sexless wasteland.

Big muscles are a male fantasy. That’s not to say that women aren’t ever into them, but let’s face facts; women have never been the primary target audience for superhero comics, and male heroes are drawn with big muscles anyway. Make no mistake; women are there. But those big muscles are not there for women. They’re there for men; straight men who find male power exhilarating. If women didn’t exist, superheroes would be drawn just as buff as they are today — because as far as most superhero comics are concerned, women as consumers do not exist.

Yet I’ve seen it said more times than I can count that male heroes are objectified, sexualized, idealized, just the same as the women — because they’re big and ripped and dressed in tight costumes. It’s an idea that’s completely tied up in the narcissistic notion that androphile women are attracted to the same qualities that men find appealing.

Talk to a few women, and you’ll find that’s broadly untrue.

It seems that the Sorting Hat tends to place students based on qualities they value rather than qualities they exhibit..

Note#1: Steve is NOT a Hufflepuff. He will NEVER BE a Hufflepuff. Is he loyal hardworking etc? absolutely. But I think what really and fundamentally represents him is his Bravery, his nerve and his chilvary.

Note#2: Tony Stark. he is such a complex character. the best descripion I’ve seen of him is A Ravenclaw, with Slytherin like personality, that tries to be a Gryffindor. And I know that a lot of you think he’s a Gryffindor and I kind of agree.But seriously. His super power is his mind.  He designed his superpower (the suit, which is RED AND GOLD and it’s what he thinks makes him a superhero. It represents the Gryffindor side of him).He discovered a new element and when asked he says he is ”a genious billionaire blah blah blah” So. Ravenclaw.

Reposting for Nick looking like the poster boy for Slytherin.

We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.
