    remember thinking that some female comic book characters were "nice looking" but I don't think I ever fantasized about them. But around the early 90's I can clearly looking back see a trend to sell the sex appeal of female characters. At first it was empowering (Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Jean Grey, Invisible Woman, Witch Blade) but then it seemed to head into "Super-Power-Dominatrix" territory.
