It’s not about bodies though. Men and women who are superheroes in a comic should have superbodies. Goes without saying, the mere fact that you KNOW they’re more than human, that they’re not supposed to be the depiction of an average person, doesn’t make anyone feel bad about their bodies. So it’s not that.

It’s how those bodies are arranged in space, how differently they’re flashed out.

Men are designed rationally - when they move or strike a pose in combat, it has purpose. It’s clinical, clear, empowering. You will never see Spiderman or Captain America in a sexual position so blatantly pointless. You won’t see Ironman’s ass pointing upwards to the moon, legs spread and ready to take it. You won’t see the contour of Quicksilver’s balls against the New York skyline, or a window on Wolverine’s pubic hair designed into his costume. When Luke Cage is bending over, you won’t see little dimples right above his buttcheeks.

Male superheroes are never inviting the reader (boy or girl) to jerk off over a not so subtly sexual drawing of them inexplicably squatting on a rooftop.

You can draw a superheroine, with femininity and perfect body shape, without sexualizing her (see, for instance, the beautiful work of Phil Noto with the Black Widow comic): even her clothes, while skin tight as with any comic book hero, can appear sensible.

Anyway, I don’t care - none of you will ever get it. I’m sorry you even think yourself worthy of the comics you read because honestly? Steve Rogers would never stand for this shit.
