13948: Super Sex Objects.

This series of photos was described as follows:

Los Angeles-based fashion photographer Viktorija Pashuta, famous for her creative viral photo shoots, comes up with a new series of high fashion images exclusively for BASIC Magazine, where she reimagines what famous AVENGERS MARVEL CHARACTERS would look like if they were female.

Sponsored by luxury suitcase company DESENO, the photographer transforms six famous superheroes like THOR, IRONMAN, HULK, CAPTAIN AMERICA, BLACK PANTHER and HAWKEYE into WOMEN SUPERHEROES. Using one-of-a-kind fashion pieces from European & US designers, she creates images that aim to empower all women around the world and inspire them to be strong, independent and almighty.

Okay, but not sure these images really save the day, so to speak. After all, the women are arguably objectified and hardly inspirational. Actual female heroes in the Marvel universe exhibit greater strength, independence and almightiness. Plus, some of the Marvel characters already have female versions. Finally, the lack of diversity is super insulting.
