Artist, Lord Ingvard, Re-Designs Women's Superhero Costumes To Be Actually Functional

Artist, Lord Ingvard is sick and tired of the costumes artists give their female superheroes.

I love comics and superheroes as much as the next nerd, but the women’s costumes—sweet mother of Moses!—the COSTUMES. At the very least, highly impractical. And at worst, incredibly sexist. I mean, EXTREMELY so. Honestly, I don’t know why women haven’t been a lot more angry and vocal about this kind of thing over the years.

That being said, I just had to take a shot at addressing the most obvious problems. Now, I am not by any means an experienced or accomplished character designer. I am not suggesting these costume re-designs are ideal, or even very good. My main goal was to at least TRY to approach the subject of female superheroes with the degree of logic, equality, and respect they—and their readers—deserve.
Below are the heroes, Ingvard re-designed with a more practical touch.

While Marvel Comics continues to make leaps and strides in the area of diverse representation, Marvel Studios can't seem to find their footing when it comes to female and minority heroes. The Avengers movie line-up as it stands now, has less women than any Avengers team has had in a long time. Making matters even worse, since merging with Disney, the merchandise of their franchises seems to frequently forget their female heroes. First Gamora was left off Guardians shirts, and Black Widow hasn't been seen on shirts and toys since the first Avengers despite starring in two of their movies.

Finally (maybe because of DC's push with Wonder Woman) Marvel seems to be hearing the call. At Licensing Expo 2015, Marvel senior Vice President of Licensing Paul Gitter said they were going to have "a big focus on adult female apparel". Maybe Black Widow will get some shirts once Captain America: Civil War comes out, but let's hope both Scarlet Witch, and they're upcoming Captain Marvel see some love, too.
