We reported a few months ago on The Hawkeye Initiative, a snarky blog that encourages readers to take sexist comic book art that features female characters in needlessly sexualized poses and outfits and redraw them using Hawkeye (or another male superhero) to expose the ridiculous nature of the sexism that is deeply ingrained in the comic book industry. It looks like DC co-publisher Jim Lee is taking the concept to the next level with this poster of Superman from Superman Unchained #1, which depicts Superman with the unnaturally skinny waist typical of female heroes in comic book art, as well as a body-twisting pose designed to show off both Superman's ass and his chest at the same time. The poster will be a part of the story in Superman Unchained, but it is also designed to be detached from the book and displayed proudly on your wall, so that you can show the world that you support equal rights for female…
What's that? Lee didn't do this as part of the Hawkeye Initiative? That's just a regular Lee drawing of Superman? Oh. Ooohhhh. Yeech.
Superman Unchained #1, complete with sexy Superman foldout poster (11.6875” x 18.875”), hits stores next week.
