Artist Dares To Imagine Female Superheroes With Clothes… On?

Michael Lee Lunsford

I love comic books–Spider-man’s exploits specifically–but I haven’t really read them since college. Back in the 90’s, we saw an explosion of talented artists throughout the industry and heroes, old and new, were re-imagined for this second golden age of comics. While the heroes became grittier and darker, the women became bombshells fighting crime, monsters, aliens, and villains in less and less.

I think we all started to wonder, “how does she fight crime in that?” Well, one artist named Michael Lee Lunsford decided to take a more practical approach to the female superhero costume, and actually put clothes on them.

Lunsford explains that this wasn’t some sort of moral judgement against female superheroes and their skin tight outfits, it was “an exercise in character design, attempting to clothe the heroines nearly all the way and not making them painted-on, while still keeping the look of their original costumes in some way.”

I think Lunsford succeeded admirably. I think each of these superheroes still look like heroes, and their costumes make way more sense than the revealing, skin tight outfights they currently wear in the comics.

Take a look at these side-by-side comparisons and see which ones you like better. The original DC Comics design is on the left while Lunsford’s re-imagined look is on the right. Personally, I think they all look better with pants.
