Oh, just stop it. Now.

From Thunderbolts #111 (nicked from Dave's Long Box):

Human bodies don't WORK THAT WAY. The woman with the blond hair? How is she even standing up? People CANNOT WALK LIKE THIS.

Stop posing women like broken-back Barbies. Please. It's ridiculous.


  • The woman on the extreme left seems to be doing a model catwalk strut, that unnatural placement of one foot whipped directly in front of the other, with hips swinging like a pendulum.

    The blonde, though--I assume has the spine of a snake, is not human, and has no mass.

  • This picture caused me, when I first saw it, to try to find out if I can stand with my left boob centred over my right hip. It turns out I can... for a few seconds, before I fall over.

  • Is blonde girl not "elastogirl" the incredible flexi woman or something?
    I knew a girl who could walk like that.... after the car crash

  • Ok, the walking is not very realistic.
    What about her superpowers ?
    And the world their living in?

    Come on, it´s fantasy, fiction, the female character wants to look hot. If you want realism, just go outside it´s full out there.

  • Oddly, on the occasions where I have hurt a muscle very low on my back and on one side, that's exactly how I walk. However, I'm in pain and presumably this not the intended impression.

  • I guess the main point is that she has her weight on her left foot while leaning to her right. This would be impossible as a held pose, but as a momentary pose while walking it is possible. It would be a strange, exaggerated type of walk, more like the shifting of weight while rollerblading than normal walking.

  • That's true. she doesn't look like a fighter, and thunderbolts are rude. She seems as a model who use viagra online with her couple. Definitely she blew it.
