A list of the hottest superheroes in the DC cinematic universe. Damn. Alas, again I find myself stuck in the mire of a moral quandary. The old “are we allowed to find a female attractive and refer to her as hot or does that make me sexist” debate. While one can surely understand how some people feel (it degrades and demoralizes them to focus on their looks and not the good they do), but you can also understand where some might want to stand up and tell everyone else to relax, they aren’t real. They are playing make belief and getting paid a great deal for it.
So what do we do? What should we change, ladies? What upsets you? Would you prefer all females in comic movies be portrayed as flat chested henceforth? Do you want less attractive females cast? Maybe you should write to the site that made the video or maybe DC if you are all worked up over this. Don’t kill the messenger. I didn’t write the list, nor do I gain anything at all from sharing it with you, so withhold any anger you have for me for someone else, please.
You could just chill out a little.
It is just comic books. If women truly hated these interpretations of super-heroines, thousands of them wouldn’t cosplay at every event, every year, as these very characters. And for anyone who wants to think feminism hasn’t come far, remember, for every half naked character in fiction, there are characters like Elizabeth from Bioshock and the amazing lead from Orphan Black.
But in the meantime, please shut up and enjoy the video. It’s not that big of a deal.
