What do you think about the recent Catwoman/Starfire brouhaha? Do you feel there is a place for highly sexualized cheesecake in mainstream superhero comics? I think Marvel does a better job avoiding it, or at least making them more 3 dimensional.
I haven't read either comic, so it's difficult to talk about this question with any sort of genuine background. To some degree, it's a matter of individual taste. For me, I don't think I'd ever have done--or wanted to do--a shot like that last page of CATWOMAN. That just seems like it's in the worst taste imaginable to me, Especially with a character like Batman who, like it or not, is meant as much if not moreso for kids than the average comic book super hero. But your mileage may vary. I was less concerned about Starfire, outside of the fact that it seemed like that story was pretty poorly done, until people started pointing out that she'd been a big part of the TEEN TITANS cartoon that's still airing in reruns. But all that being said, I'm sure that you could turn around and point to similar examples in the Marvel books, and even on titles I've edited. Everybody's boundary is going to be just a little bit different in this regard. But yes, as a general think, I don't think our industry often puts its best foot forward when it comes to the depiction of women.
