You probably don't even need to read comics to know that, even to this day, many big-label artists and series still put their female characters in physically impossible poses, all in the name of making them look sexy.

In an attempt to fix this, artists worldwide are teaming up for a top-secret initiative. And by that I mean a Tumblr blog. Where people take ridiculous portrayals of female comic characters and... replace them with a sketch of Hawkeye, from the Avengers, doing the same thing.

The results are... well, take a look for yourself. I don't know whether to be terrified or turned-on, so I'm just going to go ahead and see where both get me.
