Sue Richards – OTT Super MILF?

Sue Richards Invisible Woman Fantastic Four MILF1.jpg

Kenny spotted this while ‘researching’ (we believe him) into the murkier parts of the web. Yes, that sketch above is the Fantastic Four’s respectable Sue Storm Richards, re-imagined by Rockin’ Jellybean as a ridiculously OTT, outrageously curvy super-MILF (could that be a new sub genre for erotic, the Super-MILF?). The sketch is a design for this statue(below), which looks from the derriere regions (which you really can’t miss, can you?) to draw an awful lot of inspiration from the mighty hipped wimmin characters of Mr R Crumb:

I’m not really sure what to make of this – is their version of Sue a hunchback who’s hump slipped down a bit? I’m sure plenty of you recall the furore that exploded over the comics blogosphere a couple of years ago over a Mary Jane statue, although in that case I think it was the mixture of overt sexualisation combined with her being ‘obediently’ domestic and taking care of Spidey’s washing that really annoyed a lot of folks, while some saw it as harmless titilation. But its hard to see this Sue figure (and I used the word ‘figure’ advisedly) creating the same uproar since its so obviously cartoony; in fact it looks like something from the old school British naughty seaside postcards (all it’s lacking is a speech bubble with suitable double entendre). I almost said so unrealistic, but then superheroines (and indeed superheroes) rarely showcase the most realistic human physiques to begin with; maybe that’s part of the point in exaggerating Sue to this extent for this figure. But perhaps its as well they didn’t do a Power Girl figure as well…Mind you, I can’t help but think this exaggerated style would be perfect for doing a Luba figurine.Need I add this is created exclusively for the Japanese market?
