Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF?

Boobs and butt cleaning service

Oh no somebody's maid robot had a serious malfunction and has almost twisted itself in half.

Panel from Wonder Woman vol 2 #114 with Wonder Woman smashing an orange haired girl (Silver Swan before transformation) through glass, Diana's breast plate appears to be falling off and her bare butt indicates an atomic wedgie from her pants

Wonder Wedgie

Submitted by anon

This is relatively minor, but it looks like Diana's had a wardrobe malfunction in two places.  Her top looks like it's falling off and her butt just ate the rest of her costume. D:

Panel from Wonder Woman vol 2 #65 with Diana in a boobs and butt pose in a sand storm

Boobs and butt Wonder Woman

Diana's mad at man's world for pushing the boobs and butt pose onto her.

screenshot of Destiny Child with a girl in black hair holding a sword on the left of the screen with extreme boobsocks as her breasts and nipples are basically visible but covered in black, in the center is the game screen with a blonde woman straddling a sword between her legs wearing a white bodysuit

Please do not straddle your sword

The girl on the left has some serious painted on boobsocks going on, but more importantly, the middle girl needs some serious sword safety training.  Ma'am, please do not straddle your blade like that.
