Do you like action heroines or superheroines?

Me? Not really. I don't like the way a lot of them are presented - it's offensive.

The only ones I've ever shown any interest in were:

The black Supergirl:

Cir-El, the tomboyish Supergirl:

and Jubilee:

I would post pics of action heroines but I can't think of any that aren't trampy or slutty.

I don't like action heroines or superheriones that are trampy or slutty.
I don't like the way comic book heroines are objectified.

Comic book heroines should have modest apparel on.

If you think what I posted was sexist or racist I don't care.

The blonde Supergirl and Power Girl are disgusting - they are overrated Barbie Dolls with capes.

Action heroines like Lara Croft, Danger Girl and Tank Girl are way too slutty/trampy.

There's a double standard in comics. If MALES wee presented in comics the way female characters were people would protest.

@djjd62,
I always thought they should make a heroine named Black Tarr.

It's WORSE when they try to OBJECTIFY teenaged characters.

Can someone name any comic book action heroines that aren't slutty or trampy?

The only one I can think of is Little Orphan Annie:

I don't know that mucha bout G. I. Joe, but I think the women in that were presented in a highly indignant and revolting manner.

Have you ever noticed how a large number of action heroes and superheroines are Caucasian?

That's extremely racist and put-offish. It is like the people who create these characters ASSUME non-whites don't read comics or watch movies or play video games.

Does anyone agree with this?
