If there are two things that I love, it’s comic books and mostly nude women. So one would think that putting them together would be like bunnies and carrots (though, as the Buffy musical once asked, what do they need such good eyesight for, anyway?). But this borderline SFW promo for Agent Provocateur’s new superheroine-inspired lingerie line — and attendant comic book — defies logic:

Somehow, this manages to be insulting to comic readers and spectacularly unsexy at the same time. In a season of comic-book mergers — Disney and Marvel, Warner Bros. and DC — this is one I could’ve done without. Am I alone? Ladies, would you wear anything advertised here? On purpose?
