Finally, Comic Book Women Get A “Real Bodies” Makeover (Spoiler: They Look Healthy, Awesome, and Badass )

by Madison N Nunes

Surely some comic book fan woke up this week and decided they were going to set out to win BUST‘s heart. There’s been news of all female spinoffs, characters coming out as bisexual, and now, members of are re-envisioning the bodies of super-heroines as more down-to-Earth figures. 

When the team at saw Buzzfeed’s Disney princess makeovers, they decided they should take these super-human ladies and give them some super human bodies. Their hope is that when viewers see these realistic waistlines, they will be able to better relate to the characters. After all, being powerful doesn’t have to correlate with being a double-D, size 2 cat lady, or being a lady at all (lookin’ at you, Captain America). But hey, if you happen to be Selina Kyle and have those idealized attributes, you’re great too.
