Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF?

Marvel's Elektra in the shower with panels and steam covering her breasts and torso, her butt is sticking out at a 90 degree angle to her back with a panel obscuring the connecting area

Don't take hot shower when you're made of rubber

Not only is this comic page creepy, but I also don’t seem to understand how Electra back works. The butt seems to be from another person. ( also that is really waterproof make up)

So hot she's melting

Just got this ad and her neck looks like when I was little and one of my barbie’s heads started to come off

Possibly one of the ugliest woman-bike fusions I have ever seen. (Metal Max 4: Moonlight Diva for Nintendo 3DS)
