promo description of the Punisher class/character for Scarlet Blade which shows a CGI white woman with short brown hair facing away from the audience viewpoint, she has green and white armor on her shoulders and upper back and is holding a large gun, the rest of her back is bare including her butt which appears to be totally unclothed except for  a small tattoo or piece of material above her butt crack (it's hard to tell), she is wearing long thigh high boots, her back is bent inward over 90 degrees

The Bumisher

I think her class name is a typo, clearly they meant that to be the Bumisher right?

cover of "White Widow #7" by Absolute Comics showing a red haired white woman in a skintight boobsocked red and black suit with silver bio armor around her shoulders and hands as well as a black symbiote like goop around her right arm, her left arm has a witchblade type gauntlet on, her right leg looks like it's coming out of her crotch and is extremely en pointe

Spider-Woman from

We have Spider-Woman at home, and she's even cooler! She has a venom symbiote, AND the Witchblade!

Also she's a ballerina and her leg comes from her crotch.

Cover art for the anime DNA squared DVD vol. 4 set showing a masked man with dark skin and purple hair and Kotomi Takanashi, an anime girl with short black hair in a pink and purple dancer's spandex, she is in a boobs and butt pose with her arms in the air, and her back bent 90 degrees with her butt sticking out to the right of her body

TFW Your Butt Really Wants to Escape

My friend started to watch DNA² so we revisited the art and I saw this and ouch, apparently when your DNA gets squared*, it turns you into some sort of rubber snake centaur hybrid.
