Comic artist Guillem March recently posted a sequence that was cut from The New 52‘s Catwoman #3. The pitch: Catwoman figures out Batman’s true identity and uses her feminine wiles to exploit him to do her bidding.
Then you actually SEE the sequence and realize that it involves Catwoman doing a strip-tease on Bruce Wayne’s front lawn. The scene was ultimately scrapped to focus on Catwoman coping over the loss of her friend Lola.
It's great that that scene was cut... but what worries me is this inside glimpse into what “could have been” shows that these outdated ideas of what feminist power and agency actually are... is still present and lingering even in 2011. (Don’t believe me? Look up the various ways they try to explain the “boob window” on Power Girl’s costume)SOURCES:
