Faster than a pre-ejaculate
More powerful than Viagra
Able to heave over tall buildings in a single bounce.
Look! Up in the sky.
It’s a bottle, it’s a balloon,
No, it’s Supertits!
Who is Supertits you ask? Well she’s not really just one who, but a symbol of the many super busty, super women, keeping the world safe with her knock out powers, and eye candy costumes, distracting bad guys, and catching criminals with her cavernous cleavage, all in a days work.
Recently my five year old son (and my 45 year old husband), has been fascinated with the Justice League. You know, DC comics band of super friends: Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and The Flash. Included amongst these titans in tights are a couple of super heroines known as Wonder Woman and Hawk Girl. As I sat and watched these cartoons with my son, I couldn’t overlook the buxom bosoms heaving out over these daredevil divas tight fitting bustiers; yes, bustiers! It was as if all their superpowers were concentrated in one spot.
I said to my husband during one of our Justice League marathons, “I don’t understand why these super hero women need to be dressed in bustiers, with their swollen breasts spilling out over their costumes. It belittles their power; it’s so sexist”, to which he replied, “ No it isn’t. Those ARE the most powerful things in the universe!”
I laughed out loud. Leave it to a man to state the obvious. Of course breasts control the power of the universe. Breast augmentation is the second most popular plastic surgery. Breasts provide sexual pleasure, feed life to newborns, and rally millions in support and dollars when they’re ill.
Let’s face it, it’s not like an A cup is going to stop a speeding bullet.
Fighting crime and getting ahead is hard work, and our super heroines are entitled to use whatever forces of nature help them to accomplish this. And for those of us not so fortunate to have cosmic cleavage, there’s always booty brawn to knock out bad guys.
But I’m not much of a comic book type of gal, so in the name of research, I had to check out how many other tensile strength tits were bouncing around out there in the name of truth and justice. Let me tell you, the list was longer than America’s Most Wanted. Here’s a synopsis of five of the top heavy super ladies, and their claim to fame:
1.) Power Girl. From Superman’s home planet of Krypton, Power Girl is sporting a powerful set of double D’s protruding through the hole in the center of her teddy. With a lot of support, she rises to the position of chairman in the Justice Society.
2.)Ms. Marvel, leader of the Avengers, is clad in a black leather bustier teddy with matching leather gloves and black leather thigh high boots. She makes pretty woman look like a catholic school girl.
3.) Storm, a member of the X-Men, is scantily wrapped in tight fitting leather. She has the ability to control the weather. Perhaps it’s her thunderous breasts channeling this ESP.
4.)Emma Frost. Forget the bustier, this frosty fem fatale cools down in a set a of pasties and Le Mystere panties. It’s no wonder she becomes leader of the X-Men.
5.) Wonder Woman. I had to save the best for last. This is the one Super Heroine I do remember growing up with. An American Icon, she gives a whole new meaning to the red, white and blue. Her American Eagle adorned bustier and star spangled booty would make any man stand up and salute her flag. But it’s her lasso swinging skills, bullet repelling bracelets, and super strength that made every girl feel she could be powerful too.
Now look, I’m a modern woman, a self proclaimed feminist, and an A cup. But I couldn’t help think, ‘Is this dominatrix image one that should be projected toward young kids, or is it just a reflection of reality?’ Voluptuous, strong women do rise to powerful positions; it’s just hard to see their bustiers under those power suits.
We all have to use our strengths in this world to get ahead, and we might not be glamorous superheroes, or super models, or even super mom’s, but we all have something super to offer as women. So hats off to the tantalizing, titillating, tightly topped titans of feminine mystique, Supertits, and her boobalicious powers to fight crime while climbing the comic strip corporate ladder.

My youngest son is a huge fan of Marvel comics, and he has endured many conversations on this topic. I figure I can’t change society, but I can hopefully teach my son to recognize the absurdness of these depictions!
You’re right these are most certainly absurd depictions, but I doubt any of the illustrators were women!
love it !
Have you seen this: http://thehawkeyeinitiative.com/
Or this: http://boobsdontworkthatway.tumblr.com/
I feel both address this issue nicely. And yet, I still love comics!
Thanks for the like, and stopping by. I checked out those other sites (I’m not all that familiar with tumblr I have to admit) and I thought they were both pretty cool, esp. the hawkeye initiative; makes me want to send in a submission of my own. I’ve never been a huge comic book fan, but I did watch Wonder Woman religiously when I was a kid. I loved that she got the bad guys…even if she was wearing next to nothing.
