Four from Invincible Iron Man #15.

Tony and Pepper are hanging out in his secret Russian base, but Madame Masque is on their trail...






The moral of the story: don't date women who look like Doctor Doom.

Also, Tony needs to grow his moustache back already; just doesn't look right otherwise.

Yeah, Tony sans 'stache looks really freaking weird. Cute, but weird.

Also, last scan? Madame Masque's butt is eating her suit. No lie.

...upon looking closer at the scan, something is really, really wrong with the angles. Where is the rest of Tony? Isn't Madame Masque supposed to be straddling him? Ergo, shouldn't we be seeing, oh, I don't know, his LEGS at least? Did the floor just open up and swallow everything from his nipples downwards? THIS IS BOTHERING ME.

PS: I commend her sensible boots.

It actually looks like she could Get Shit Done in those boots, as opposed to the stiletto heels that every other villainess seems to be sporting.

It's not just eating her suit, it's eating itself. Madame Masque and the imploding butthole! Maybe that's why Tony left her, he didn't feel his iron man was safe doin' it up the bum.

Must be difficult squeezing her lips through the hole in that Mask every morning...

I'm a huge fan of contextual costuming.
Fighting in high heels is okay if the rest of the work doesn't take itself seriously and there is enough similar content to balance it out (nobody complained about Else Bloodstones fabulous kicks in Nextwave because they where to busy marveling Machine Mans wonderfull tools or oh hey, dropbears!).

I complained (silently), because I wasn't that taken with Nextwave. And I also hate fun.

Have we ever seen what her face looks like?

Well, we never see them move, as they are set on perma-pout. So maybe it's just part of the mask. Every girl wants big red bee-stung hooker lips, right? Even worldly bitter villainesses.

Good god. She not only looks like a female Doctor Doom, she thinks like one too! Victoria Von Doom, should she have been born, would probably have had giant red lips made out of crushed ruby quartz.

You're so right... that makes me want to make a Lady Doom character now. That'd be badass as hell.

Does it matter? Her body is smokin'. I'd take it.

Sure, she'd be all like "honey, why do you always want to do it 69?" and I'd have to avoid admitting that I'm trying to keep face to face with the end of her that looks better so she doesn't kill me, but what the hell.

This art is so weird. Machinery and buildings look great, but all the people look like inflatable dolls. Static and shiny. Imagine the 'squeak' of Tony's lips as he talks, 8th panel particularly :)

Doing ANYTHING in high heels is idiotic. Myself, I find excuses not to draw them, even in the smut. My main one? Why, they're harder to draw than flats.

I think her face will be unscarred and undamaged. At least nothing really serious. She is just freaking crazy and believes ┬┤her face is messed up.
W: Do you see the Horror, Tony? DO YOU SEE THE HORROR?
T: Uh, Whitney, your face is actually very beautiful.
W: THAT IS A LIE! ITS HIDEOUS! HIDEOUS!
(collapse sobing on Tonys manly chest)
I think something like this will happen in nthe next issue.

Wait...he's SEEN her face before why would he have a problem with it now? Or did he forget that along with Happy and screw drivers (not the drink)?

Problem is, Tony has already seen her face and had no problem with it. In fact I seem to remember him thinking she was beautiful and liking the fact that they both had scars they were ashamed of.

So it really makes no sense that he would suddenly be horrified by her face.

Well, to each their own. I think my point still stands though. But I wouldn't say drawing it is much harder than the foot itself (I'd say the hardest thing feet related for me are toes).

The foot is basicly articulated in three places. The toes, the middle foot (I don't know the anatomic name for this) and the heel that attaches to the calf.

If you can draw someons foot bracing for a leap you can draw it in heels.

The rest is just observation and shapes in perspective.

That's what I figure anyway. But I don't know if its to any help without visual aids. Then again its three in the morning, I'm not feeling very pedagocic, my tea is getting cold and I should probably hit the sack.

Or maybe she's hhad one too many cosmetic surgeries like Michael Jackson.

The ballet shoes worked in Bubblegum Crisis, because the armor was balancing the user.

You're not far off-- anatomically the divisions are called the forefoot, midfoot and hindfoot.

Feet in ALL cases are a bitch to draw. I try to avoid them if I can. Thank god I don;t draw superheroes.

I never thought those were her lips.

Also the whole robots (we thend to blank out the design of robot feet as "well it whas probably designed that way for functionality", see Starscream) and un-ironic focus on 80's pop. Or the aerobics cut-ins.

It fits the world of the story. Also, the title allready loads all kinds of ideosyncratic images in our head using "Bubblegum".

Anyone see Madame Masque without her mask? She's pretty, but she has these really big buck teeth. Spongebob sized!

Remember that Tony is losing chunks of his memory at a pretty fast rate. More likely than not he doesen't remember that he's seen Whitney's face before.

I don't understand the existence of this scene at all, tbh.

Didn't they do this way back when in Avengers?

Didn't they make up in Busiek's Avengers run (which was her last appearance before Bendis made her work with the Hood)?

They already did that with Oubliette in the Marvel Boy mini. It's the same as Jack Kirby's original idea for Dr. Doom--that one day we'd see Victor's face and it would have one little scar on it from the explosion. But Stan Lee established that the sight of Doom's face could drive someone insane, so that was out; John Byrne later tried to resolve the two by redoing the origin so that when Doom saw the little scar, he told the monks that forged his mask to put it on him red-hot.

Is this someone else on pencils? It doesn't look like a sack of shit any more?

Fabian Nicieza (I think he was the one) refer to Cable and Deadpool as one of the greatest love story he has ever wrote, and Wade Wilson's entire body is scarred by tumours.

At first, I really shy away from the fanart, even though I thought the fic was hot, because Wade's personality is hot, but over time, I found the fanart hot because Wade's personality is hot. I wager the same thing it is with Tony, he loves her personality enough to love her face as well, it sound like they had a hack of a snarky time together.

...and Christ, I've always read Tony as a bit of a submissive, so a villaintress suits him...
