Pass the brain bleach!
Pass the brain bleach!

Ok, ok, I’m done riffing on the Hawkeye Initiative thing, but I couldn’t resist one last poke at some of the fantasy armor & sexily posed lady “warriors” tropes. I don’t care what your stats are – if your midriff is showing and you’re coyly simpering at the camera, I’m not gonna take you seriously. The same poses & outfits that female characters look utterly absurd when drawn on male characters, and if you’re squirming in your seat reading today’s comic, well, welcome to every time I open a gaming book and see more cameltoe & bikini tops than actual, functional armor.

Tomorrow we move on to more gaming hijinks!
