It's so sad and amusing how alt-girls and nerd-chicks still manage to portray impossible proportions, a la Barbie measurements, superficially repackaged with a different color palette and style.

2) no stupid arse tattoo.

I would like to see her arse for proof of whether or not there's a tattoo.

I'm not feeling it

maybe because it seems out of character with the characters a little?

I have a cousin who is not at all a comic book fan, but is a huge fan of the old WONDER WOMAN TV
show, and when he saw a picture of The Black Canary on my FB feed, he decided he'd wasted all those
years being in love with the Amazon Princess.

40 Pinup is more of a style, than a look. It's a heightened sensuality study of the female form with a unifying artistic theme

Your first image there is a standard superhero cover. Nothing sensual about it.
The second image really doesn't have an artistic theme.

Here we have a young lady, with a sweet innocent sexuality blended with an aviation artistic theme.

She has got a rocking little body. But when I watch her talk, I don't think the left side of her face is moving. Maybe a stroke victim?

It doesn't matter how realistic looking the original, women will eventually turn a female character into a tarted-up busty bimbo whore. Women will eventually also turn any male character into a woman, then tart the feminized model up like a busty bimbo whore. There's also a reasonable chance that any other noteworthy living creature or inanimate object will be anthropomorphized by women, feminized, and turned into a tarted-up, busty bimbo whore.

Sexy Velma! Sexy Thor! Sexy PikachuSexy Death Star! Every one of these has been featured on Fark before!

DC and Marvel should to a 40's style revamp of their comics and have that 40's style pinup/artwork.  Bet it would cost too much to do, though.

Ok, so now they're trying to triangulate a faint ping from 2 miles down in the Indian Ocean.  Has it occurred to anyone else that the flight may have been 'splashed' in another sea, then deliberately transported and dumped there?
