Psylocke in the sadly-all-too-common spine-breaking breasts and butt pose. Have these artists ever seen a real woman? xD
Chiropractors must do good business with female superheroes.
One of her breasts is lower than the other. But worse than that… look at her right hip, where is it bending at? Hips are ball and socket joints people!
This is an extremely uncomfortable pose, period, much less to fight in. xD Also their breasts are growing out of their collarbones!
I know MY breasts start at the collarbone. Don’t yours?
Her arms are frightening me.
The legs! Where are the legs!?
For a little gender equality: This is a rare picture of a guy in a broken spine girl pose!
I think Psylocke’s entire body is made up of plasticine there.
Greg Land traced a crime scene photo for that third panel didn’t he?
