Battle Sparkles(Source)

The internet is a mysterious and wonderful place full of the great and the disturbing. Also, comic books! It is a simple idea, when a comic book related site in whatever form grabs my interest I will make a post here and share it with you.

So let us kick things off with the brilliant Hawkeye Initiative.

A tumblr with a very simple but amazing idea,

“How to fix every Strong Female Character pose in superhero comics: replace the character with Hawkeye doing the same thing.”  –Gingerhaze

So the aim of the game is to highlight the ridiculous body poses that a lot of female characters are contorted into in comic books. There have been many blogs/sites/ideas to highlight this issue before but none have been done with such aplomb and humour. It is shining a light on a big problem with the best weapon possible, comedy.

Here is a couple of examples that gave me the giggles:

More Starfire!
