The New Mutants summarise their new mission statement of "We clear up the shit other writers left behind/which the X-Men messed up" "Unfinished Business" as they search for Nate "X-Man" Grey... and Doug makes a discovery...

I should add that that IS Victoria Hand in the background and she is her usual charming self (One is almost nostalgic for Gyrich)

Well that's uncharacteristically catty!

Personally, if for some reason I lost my ass and had to choose one of their's to be grafted onto me, I'd go for Victoria's.

But if I had to choose one just to look at touch, and fondle I'd go for Doug's.

Victoria is wearing a perfectly decent outfit which, shall we say, seems to have at least a partial intention of highlighing her ass as an asset. (and I should make it clear that I don't think there's anything wrong with that whatsoever, more power to her for that (and her fanbase here clearly agrees) but to me it seems to lack a little... subtlety.

Doug on the other hand is casually wearing something akin to a boilersuit (a spandex boilersuit perhaps, but more utilitarian than anything else), not apparently designed to highlight anything, and yet what we can see is instantly appealling.

And you... don't think your natural predilection for young men's asses is influencing this very objective assessment at all? ;)

I don't think Victoria's skirt is unsubtle, or any more highlighting of her assets than Doug's suit - they both look equally tight to me, and Doug's hips and ass are also accentuated by the V shape and the yellow accents (the fact that the 'camera' appears to be staring directly at it also helps).

If Victoria's ass looks more obvious, it's because there's more of it there. Because she is a lady (I say this as someone who has a particular difficulty with perfectly ordinary, modest-looking skirts suddenly morphing into "attention-seeking" gear the moment I get in them).

Hey, I have to speak up here as a straight guy.

*I* had to stop and admire Doug's ass in that panel. Mmmm-MMMM.

...okay, straight-ish. It doesn't count if it's Doug!

To be fair of course if Doug were to try on the same outfit we'd probably get much the same reaction.... though I'd end up VERY confused! o_O
Well, I don't have it with Doug, but let's put it to the test:

IIRC, it's the former (and guy in the vid is very cute, it's a shame he can't dance)

*g* I think I've seen that one before as well. Very nice too, tragic lack of high heels though.

so, would you have linked to that fanart with Batman as Frank N Furter if I had answered the second?

Also, you have to consider the gender factor. They artists probably just stuck Victoria in a short tight skirt and drew her bootylicious because that's how comic artists tend to draw women's clothes and bodies. Comic art rarely reflects anything about a female character's personality, but everything about the artist's sense of sexual aesthetics

And if Doug isn't so obviously sexualised, that probably isn't supposed to emphasise the innate charm of his boyish modesty - it's probably simply because he's male.

I *think* the pose is supposed to convey a sense of motion, as though Doug has literally just stumbled upon Cap - which is why he has one foot slightly raised.

But instead it just looks like he's coyly preparing to be swept off his feet. Idk, if it is a mistake it's one I'm more than happy with.

The best is when the writers then blame the characters for it in the dialogue.
