As many of you already know, comic book artists love to give female superheroes and characters over-exaggerated and sexualized poses. Well, there's a new internet art movement called The Hawkeye Initiative in which artists draw the character Hawkeye in those same sexualized poses. They swap Hawkeye with the female heroines and the result is very disturbing.
There's a tumblr blog dedicated to posting these crazy redrawn images of Hawkeye. This is basically an exercise in disproving the idea that men and women are objectified equivalently in modern comics.
I've included a few of the illustrations below. These cannot be unseen. Not sure why it had to be Hawkeye but here ya go!
