An artist in India is challenging sexist drawings of women in comic books by parodying them using male heroes in poses typically associated with women. She-Hulk has superhuman strength and speed and is one of the most formidable hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel world. Like Hulk, not only does she have physical power, she's also completely green. Yet, on a comic book cover, she is shown in a seductive pose, wearing a G-string bikini, with her curves sharply accentuated. Indian artist Shreya Arora was shocked when she saw the image.

A not-so-popular Marvel character, Cloud was once a member of The Defenders. She or sometimes he tends not to wear clothes, but does have clouds obscuring certain parts.

Indy comic types, certainly, that goes with the whole indie art aesthetic from comics, music, film, etc.
