The Liberation of Manfire

Ask me anything   You've created your own super man from a super lady?   The Official List of Redraws   

The purpose of this blog is to illustrate the stupidity of the poses of female characters in comic books. This blog is not necessarily related to the costumes they are given and it is not for rule 63. Critiques of the costumes and rule 63 just happen to be a byproduct of the aforementioned goal.

Just a reminder to the world that there is this glorious feminist thing called the Hawkeye Initiative. Where people draw Hawkeye (and possibly other avengers) in various sexual poses that comic artists generally depict women in.

Maybe people wouldn’t be so annoyed with Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover if every series got overtly sexy variant covers—not just the ones with female leads.

This is a world I want to live in.

Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?

More fun Quiet shots, this time from Colossalcon. All courtesy of the talented M1Photo, who you can find on Flickr or Facebook! The guy managed to make mid-day harsh sunlight work, and any photographer knows that’s no easy feat.

he’s so empowered

I asked him if I could take a picture of him and he asked, “Would you like a regular pose or the Hawkeye initiative?” I didn’t know what the second one was so I went with it just for kicks. I’m glad I did.

Bless all the Hawkeye Initiative cosplayers

May I present Manfire, the brainchild of my good friend Ashley Guillory! She has drawn him, as well as many other superhero ladies as men, over at her tumblr The Liberation of Manfire. Does this concept sound familiar? The Liberation of Manfire actually pre-dates the Hawkeye Initiative by quite a bit, and acted as one of the inspirations for that project. Go check it out, it’s hilarious and wonderful! 

My wonderful and talented friend Maia made me a beautiful Manfire.

So I made four costumes in a span of about ten weeks for Fanime (muffled sobbing), and by far the most fun to put together was MANFIRE. I had planned to do a Rule 63 Nightwing for a few years, and Chris and I joked about him doing the same with the New 52 Starfire, basically wearing nothing but purple booty shorts, and thus MANFIRE was born. 

This costume was a fun learning experience in armor and latex and hair bleach (who knew you could bleach facial hair?) and we had the best time debuting at Fanime 2013. It was super duper well received, and we will definitely be revisiting this with new and improved shoulder armor next time! 

For now, enjoy my super photogenic manthing as Korimand’r, Prince of Tamaran, and MANFIRE!

Low and behold! One of my unknown dreams has come true. Manfire cosplay by Brozerker.
I have so many emotions about this I can&#8217;t even begin to explain them here. This is so cool. I am in awe. 
To everyone who still follows this blog. I apologize nothing has been updated in a very long while. I was accepted into CCA&#8217;s MFA comics program and I have been in class a lot. 
I will keep reblogging all the applicable things I have been finding and maybe some day soon I will start taking requests for redraws. If anyone else has things to submit I will try to be more prompt about posting them. 
You guys are amazing &lt;3
(p.s. sorry I wrote so much under this photo- I hope that is okay.)
