In fact, commenter Salieri brought to my attention that the only two corps members showing off absurd amounts of flesh in the image were females, one from the Star Sapphires and the other from the Indigo Corps. More after the jump.
Just take a look at this image for a second and look past the beautiful colouring and artwork and focus on the various corps uniforms. Every single one of the male uniforms features the colour of the corps intermixed with standard issue black covering the rest of the body.
Ignoring the absurd proportions of the Star Sapphire pictured here, why is her uniform, and I use the term lightly, worse than your average stripper? Even the more subdued Indigo Lantern's uniform features a midriff and loincloth that shows off a ridiculous amount of skin.
I know comics have always been pretty male dominant and females typically get the thong and go-go boots treatment, but, honestly, does no one else see a problem with how these different corps are represented?
Take a look at this image of a modified Star Sapphire costume based on the DCU animated cartoons. She's still a buxom beauty, but I dare you to tell me that is not a more appropriate and classy looking costume than having her tits hanging out in the one featured above.
I don't mean this post to be an attack on DC or Green Lantern or even the artist that drew the picture above. The above image and discussions about it just sparked something that had always bothered me and is a topic I typically ignore. So, what say you? Do you think these "costumes" are over the top in comparison to the more uniform-like other corps? Do you feel there should have been some kind of oversight before rushing these over sexed costumes to print? Would you be opposed to a more toned down version, like the one pictured above?
