There's no better way to illustrate the ridiculous, illogical, and sexist poses of women in comics than to draw men the same way. That's the mission of a unique Tumblr called The Hawkeye Initiative. Its creator Gingerhaze describes its mission this way: "how to fix every Strong Female Character pose in superhero comics: replace the character with Hawkeye doing the same thing." Once again, numerous artists have risen to the challenge. Here are some of the best examples:




What do you think of the Hawkeye Initiative?

That's awesome, though why are they picking on Hawkeye?

The Spider Girl spoof bothers me. But only because it's undeserved. That's a pose you see Spider Man in all the time. I'd say he's in that pose in a skin tight outfit a lot more than she is. But the other....yeah their a little silly and mock worthy.

I agree with Comic Geek on this one with also the Black Widow pose. Not exactly a classic Spider-Man pose for BW (though it does remind me of a JRJr pose where you can see his ass and chest) but still a valid one. I get the point of this article.
Women HAVE been and are STILL portrayed poorly in comics to this day, with some "claiming" to be satirising it but that's another argument.
