Is This Gratuitous? Ultimate X-Men #85 Cover
What grabs my attention about the Ultimate X-Men #85 cover is the fact that Storm is laying sprawled unconscious in the forefront. Her boobs are crazy large compared to her normal portrayal, so that really made me wonder. I always think about Storm as a smaller breasted, more lanky lady so this didn't gel with my vision. A bit picky but true. I also was surprised to realize how much "fishnet" she is wearing compared to what I remember. Is that an homage to Zatanna and Black Canary?
Wolverine kicking the sentinel's ass is all good and well. I just wonder what the cover would have looked like if it was Wolverine laying in the front and Storm fighting the sentinel. Would his package be pronounced? Hmmm... I am so pathetic I made myself laugh!
At any rate, this cover wasn't as obvious as past ones, but it did make me wonder....
Is this gratuitous?
Thoughts? I love to hear your opinions!
