Fitness Models Portray Marvel and DC Characters With The Help of Body Paint

Some people say that comic book super heroines are drawn unrealistically; that they’re a gross misrepresentation of the female form. I have a hard time agreeing with that statement. Not when super bods exists in real life. The human form comes in all shapes and sizes. While the majority of us land on the average scale, there are those that rock the god bod. It’s these select few that can truly embody the idealistic form seen between the pages of action comics. Proving this point is J.M. Manion‘s superhero photo shoot featuring some of the hottest female fitness models in the industry portraying Marvel and DC comic book heroines, with the help of body paint. If any bat suit should have nipples showing, now would be the perfect time!

In ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ JLaw’s Mystique Will Wear a Body Suit

- 03-01-13Comics, Film Posted by Sarah Moran

Oscar winning actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has suffered for her craft, and no more so than when she endured the hours of make-up and prosthetics over her entire body to play the blue-skinned, shape shifting mutant, Mystique. She had such severe reactions to the make-up a doctor had to be called to set to treat her.

So for X-Men: Days of Future Past another way a turning JLaw blue is being used, a body suit. Speaking with E!, Lawrence shared her wildly hectic schedule, for example, the day after The Oscars she had to have her hair dyed back to Katniss brunette because she was flying to Hawaii for two weeks of Catching Fire re-shoots, and talked a little X-Men,

I’m so excited because I’m going to wear a body suit. It will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters.

Shooting begins “May-ish.” I haven’t read the script yet. I haven’t had 30 minutes. They literally gave me the script and I was like, ‘I can’t read this until Monday.’

Oh right, because she’s also squeezing in another film with Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russel and co-star Bradley Cooper before she heads off to shoot X-Men. Man, this girl is crazy busy!

But what do you think of them switching to a body suit over body paint? I’m okay with it as long as it looks good, which I’m sure it will. Otherwise they wouldn’t have made the change. These people aren’t stupid, they’d have made her suffer again, like poor John Rhys-Davies in LOTR, if it was the only way to turn her into a convincing Mystique.

ABOVE: This full Predator body paint is awesome and all, but it disturbs me. All I can think is how unfortunate it would be to have sex with a female Predator. I’m assuming Predator pussies have teeth. So getting oral from one of these gals would definitely be toothy, come on, it’s unavoidable. [ObviousWinner]
