Oh, Livewire. Supervillainess from the DCAU. A flying, sexy, intelligent dominatrix with electric powers and bad puns? This troper prefers her to Harley Quinn!
In the original Amazing Spider-Man comic, Spider-Man uses devices to shoot his web, and he produces his web-fluid separately. Thing is, the comic never tells you just how he makes the web-fluid (they simply say "it's a secret"), and considering the location of spinnerets on an actual spider...
William Moulton Marston, a bondage enthusiast and participant in a long-term polyamorous relationship, created a character you may have heard about called Wonder Woman. Looking back over the earliest years of the comic, it's hard to claim that that BDSM and lesbian elements aren't text, let alone subtext. Apart from the Author Appeal, as Marston said, "Give them an alluring woman stronger than themselves to submit to, and they'll be proud to become her willing slaves!" Underground Comics legend Chester Brown admitted in one of his own comics that the character used to turn him on.
As fetishistic as Diana is, that's nothing compared to her Evil Counterpart Superwoman: leather-clad, stripperific clothes, a lasso that removes inhibitions, continously cuckolding Superman's evil counterpart for Owlman's...Superwoman is basically Wonder Woman if her kinky and dominatrix undertones were completely blatant
Ironically, Peej got her start as a manifestation of aggressive, go-get-'em '70s feminism, and her "boob window" was just there because she was an independent woman who wasn't ashamed of her body. Not that she wasn't intentionally played as sexy, but it wouldn't be until the '80s that she'd become a full-time resident of fetishville. There's a story that her large chest-size resulted from a running joke the original artist engaged in to see if anyone was paying attention, where he'd gradually increase the size of her bust every issue, but that may be an urban legend; she was pretty well-endowed from the start.
Not to mention that she's generally drawn tall with a fairly muscular build, and that just opens the door to MORE interesting fetishes. "No, please Power Girl! Don't lift that city bus overhead! Yeah, no don't twirl it like it weighs nothing in your mighty grip. Also, please don't flex to show off how powerful you look". ...wait what was I saying again?
Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) has a very functional and simplistic costume. But it's all black, skin tight, and with a stitched eye and mouth-less mask. Hmm...
Also, her powers include the ability to read unconscious body language. That's right, she knows exactly what you're really thinking.
And then there are the scars. For some it adds to The Woobie Factor(tm), but many just dig the scars.
Parodied in Young Justice, where a female scientist is "reformatted" by an alien probe into Mighty Endowed, a catgirl-type being with enormous breasts (that are always obscured by smoke or somesuch), probably a real turn-on for those in the Breast Expansion crowd. She's something of a self-defeating villain however, since her alien-gifted enhancements make it impossible for her to stand upright. Fortunately, Mighty later discovers she has mind-control powers (over males, by hypnotizing them with her "headlights"), which allows her to get a bit of "support"; Her breasts are reportedly so large she needs two men to carry her.
Originally she was meant to be a much darker villainess, until Executive Meddling nixed the idea.
In the Ultimate Marvel Universe, the Pyms' size-changing abilities don't involve changing the size of their clothes. Thus, they only wear anything if they're going on an official mission with specially-made clothes. Other than that, you have a naked giant man and a tiny naked woman, who was once locked in a jar.
She even became gigantic once— for some reason, her costume seemd to grow with her just fine. And someone's probably even fetishized her crawling inside the Hulk's sinus passages.
It's truly disconcerting how often Mary Marvel would get bound and gagged in the older comics. Yeah, it prevents her from saying her magic word, but it didn't happen nearly as often to her brother Billy/Captain Marvel.
Her bondageriffic new Final Crisis costume isn't an alignment change, it's simply coming out of the closet.
Maybe Grant Morrison was saying something with that, considering the other characters that got the same treatment included Wonder Woman...
I think what he was "Saying" was that he likes hot women in fetish outfits. And who can blame him? :D
When Marvel attempted to reach out to a female audience by adding Anime elements, someone should have told them that this◊ wasn't the way to do it. (Okay, maybe that wasn't what they were talking about, but it's Fetish Fuel either way.)
I'd make a Doctor Octopus joke here, but I know someone would find me and kick me for it.
I'm convinced Marvel don't understand how to appeal to females now. I mean, it's a bunch of girls about to get raped by tentacles. They should have made it a bunch of guys getting the tentacle treatment, and that would have made more sense.
This female troper finds it plenty appealing
That cover is actually made by a woman. Oh, and she also did This◊ cover. I think this might be a case of Author Appeal as much as anything else.
Mongul of DC Comics has a daughter (well, sister...the current Mongul is Mongul II) who may or may not be named Mongal. She...well, looks like a female Mongul, muscles and all. You have never heard of her. She was in Our Worlds at War and one issue of Green Lantern. I have fan art of her that I made somebody else draw for me. Help me. Please.
This troper has a furry friend who already found Knuckles the Echidna incredibly hot; his skintight, Outback Cowboy outfit from the comics' Twenty-Five Years Later mini-series bumped that sex appeal for him (and myself, admittedly) by a factor of aleph-one.
Although notionally designed to appeal to female readers (as well as just milking an idea for every conceivably profitable spin-off), the once-widespread tendency of creating female offshoot versions of popular male characters as additional sidekicks has always seemed... interesting, especially since the reverse never happens, and these offshoot characters are rarely ever seen as love-interests for the hero himself, and are thus "available". Supergirl, Spider-Girl, American Dream, Mary Marvel, Jesse Quick, Batgirl, Batwoman, the female Wildcat, the female Bucky, the female Robin, the female Speedy etc. etc. A method of channeling fans' sublimated homoerotic interest in the hero into a more permissible (but identically-costumed!) target? Or just a bit of harmless kink? YOU DECIDE!
I always wanted Thor-Girl to use her mighty hammOH MY GOD!
Black Canary, either if you like her outfit, like her being an ass kicker, or if you actually have a thing for siren screams.
Every other issue of the '70s Invaders series involved Captain America chained to wall, while a Nazi beat him with a whip. On another notable occasion, supercute superheroine Spitfire tried on a vanquished Nazi hat, which no doubt provided quality wank material for many impressionable youth.
To say nothing of the fact that one of the original Invaders, Namor, was a Jerk With A Heart Of Goldprince with wings on his ankles who wore nothing but a speedo. Forties fanservice, how do you taste so good?
Do you mean to tell me that I'm the only person on the planet with the hots for Bucky? Mmm... child soldier in leather... the whole Winter Soldier thing just makes it even better...
She Hulk, period. Her description reads like a laundry list of kinks: Mousy young woman turns into a six-foot-six amazon? Check. Longer hair? Check. Bigger bust? Check. Muscles? Check. Skintight spandex costume? Check. Occasionally very aggressive? Check. And a lot of people get off on the fact that she's green, as well.
Lampshaded in the She-Hulk graphic novel, where she gets illegally strip-searched by rogue SHIELD agents, snarking "You want me to do jumping jacks too?" then gets tied up and tortured/examined nude by a creepy agent who videotapes the results for "personal use". The creep gets Karmic Death by being possessed and brain-eaten by a colony of psychic cockroaches (who transfer from body to body by kiss, so I suppose someone could find fetish in that too).
Sensational She Hulk Issue #40. 'Naked' She-Hulk. Jumping rope. Shower. Need more be said?
This Troper is convinced that John Byrne keeps a Real Doll of She-Hulk in his house he shags up with every night. Same with Capcom artist Akiman and Chun-Li.
Kon-El can manipulate anything he touches. In an early issue of Young Justice it's implied that Kon could touch someone and have their clothes rip to shreds, add that Superboy straddles the Handsome Lech/Chick Magnet line - depending on Rule of Funny and writer, it's very likely he thinks of creative sexual hijinxs for his powers - including comfortable Mile-High Affairs, and full-body massages.
Not to mention it's implied he lost his virginity to the older, red-headed Ex-Female Fury Knockout, tried to hit it on with the older, gorgeous and very dominant Tana Moon, dated the aforementioned Batgirl (who was able to knock down his shield), and Wonder Girl. Me thinks the writers had a thing for a strong guy getting dominated by even tougher girls.
If you mean that in a nonliteral sense? Sure. But the only girl on that list who might actually be tougher than Superboy is Knockout. But if you like the literal variety, Supergirl breaks Superboy's jaw when they have a fight. She's a full-blood Kryptonian while he's a hybrid.
Not just girls, either. Further back and one kink over, during the Reign of the Supermen arc, there was a moment when, trapped by the cybernetic Superman, he wound up in a bondage situation that did immobilize him - in a pinup pose, with form-fitting clothes that you could see muscle through and a fairly distinct bulge. This on top of his hairstyle, leather jacket, and a few other mannerisms basically painting him as young-closeted-homosexual Supes.
As the opening panel illustrates, Giganta. In fact giant women often wind up in comics, especially the Femforce lines from A.C. comics.
Believe it or not, one of the most prominent contributors to Giantess City is...the main writer of Femforce.
At least up until Captain Britain and MI:13, where she finally gains full control over her shapeshifting powers.
And speaking of Excalibur, there was a scene in the original series where Sat-Yr-9 outright seduces Kitty, including having Kitty sensuously sucking cake frosting off her finger. (The cake, by the way, was for Kitty's fifteenth birthday.)
Aaron Stack, a.k.a. Machine Man, is full of very useful devices. One of them can make you pregnant.
I'll see your Triplicate Girl and raise you Multiple Man.
I'll raise you further; his duplicates tend to personify aspects of his personality; one incarnated "depression", one as essentially "betrayal". Can one incarnating "horny" or "lust" be far off?
There was also, I've heard, "gay".
In the recent "Legion of Three Worlds" mini, Luornu Taine in one world now goes by the name Duplicate Girl, with powers more closely resembling Multiple Man. At one point she quips, "I don't know how I got along with just three of me." Her husband, Chuck Taine(Bouncing Boy), commented that they had just come back from their third honeymoon. Chuck Taine is now officially the luckiest dog in the thirtieth century!
This troper personally believes that she got her tentacle bondage fetish from none other than Doc Ock. Seriously, watching Spider-man being repeatedly bound and slammed into walls rather violently was.. oddly hot when she read over her old copies a while back. The fact that Ultimates Ock is a complete and total hottie (Thank you, Marvel, for showing him shirtless [And pantsless once] many, many times) combined with the fact that he can manipulate his tentacles into pretty much anything merely brings this fetish up many, many notches.
This troper wish she could find the picture again, but one issue of Spider-Man had MJ wrapped up in a giant web that Peter made for obvious Valentine's Day Bondage Session.
Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes #221 tells the story of the time villains Grimbor the Chainsman and Charma, who was a girl whose superpowers made men love her but women want to torture her, infiltrated the Legion Headquarters. This was also during the time Mike Grell was illustrating the book, which meant most of our heroes' costumes had turned into things like bikinis and corsets. I didn't even know I had those kinks.
And the Chainsman's Hat, as his name implies, was locking people in shackles; not only did every trap and weapon involve chains or metal mouth-clamps, he was the first person in comics to literally subject the entire planet Earth to bondage and strangulation, wrapping the world with "energy chains" that squeezed the atmosphere tighter and tighter until people couldn't breathe.
This Troper found a... disturbing website that was inspired by this guy. Basically, they've imagined if Grimbor was in charge of an asylum filled with various superheroines and villainesses, along with a bunch of anime and manga characters thrown in! Normally, I would find something like this... interesting, but this website is too creepy for me. Go look it up yourself if you're curious, it's called "The Chainsman Institute".
Catwoman. Why has nobody on this wiki mentioned Catwoman? There's a reason she's the icon on the Fetish Fuel page links on the New Edits page, people!
Dawn in the Buffy comics has, for completely unexplained reasons, recently gained the power of randomly turning into Fetishy forms. First she was a giant, now she's a centaur. . .
You can actually find giantess collages of Michelle Trachtenberg at Giantess City. They even make her bigger than she was in the comics.
Recent Buffy comics have also seen a upward spike (ooh-err) in the amount of depicted and implied lesbian sex that occurs. Even Buffy herself, who previously displayed no serious signs of being interested in sex with girls, is getting in on the act.
More like twelve. Anyway, this troper for one is perfectly capable of looking at a naked twelve-year-old girl without thinking of sex. What? I didn't mean I go around looking at real naked twelve-year-olds.
Sadistic, Eye Scream-fueling psychopath The Corinthian from Sandman was fetish fuel for SOMEBODY. That somebody was me, and I'm really, really sorry. It's just... gah.
Speaking of The Sandman, you also have Desire. There has to be more than one person who's turned on by someone who can flit between genders at will.
Oooh, yes, there is - this troper and her boyfriend means two people.
Also, you've got Death, the original Perky Goth sex symbol — in a leotard, thigh-high socks, a sweatband and a ponytail. It's in Season of Mists and she's appearing to a tween boy, but still. Wowza. She's shapely and sexy and just provocative enough — as well as cheerful, confident, and likeable.
This troper hopes that Gaiman's Death is the one she'll meet at the end of her life. What better way to go than to be escorted by that gorgeous lady?
Delirium didn't quite provoke lust in this troper, but she did definitely set off her mama bear sensibilities. Poor girl seems so distressed sometimes...
Let's face it, pretty much all of the Endless had to be fetish fuel for somebody... even Despair. She does walk around naked. The whole conceit of the Dreaming itself has its own possibilities...
Special mention must go to its ruler, whose state of undress during his captivity earned him a special place in this troper's heart. And the fact he rules a plane of existence that he can shape entirely as he pleases. Or did, anyway. Not to mention the almost unbearably cute scenes of him and Big Sis, Death, in The Sound of Her Wings...
Dream's eyes made this troper's heart flutter. Something about how dead/menacing/enigmatic they could look just...yeah.
And LONG HAIR damn it, it's rare enough on its own to not be paired with a horrible butcher face (like Marvels Sentry). So on another note: Ian Nottingham!
For this troper, it's Green Arrow. Just... Green Arrow. *Especially* when drawn by Neal Adams (the linework! And the shading!). It's the hat. And the gloves (and the lace-up front of the costume, and the turtlenecks, and the snark, and the Ho Yay, and the righteous speechifyin', and...). Moral of this story? Don't let your little girl watch the Disney Robin Hood too many times in a row; it will permanently mess her up. Oo-de-lalee, indeed.
Aside from the fact that he's, ya know, terribly disfigured under that mask, this female troper finds Deadpool incredibly attractive, and not just in the I-love-to-read-about-him sense. There's something about deadly guys who are just bat-nuts crazy insane that makes me go mmm.
Agreed. Especially when he does all those high kicks and jumps.
Aaaugh, yes. Those high kicks and jumps. Also, I have to say, as much as the character development in Cable and Deadpool was awesome, the dangerous, self-loathing, totally insane character in the original Deadpool comic was kind of more fetish fuel-y.
Are you counting the horrible disfigurement as a point for or against?
Depends on the artist who is disfiguring him.
There's a scene in Cable and Deadpool where Deadpool is transported to an alternate reality where Cable's techno-organtic virus has rage out of control and assimilated everyone. Techno-Cable tries to assimilate Deadpool. With tentacles. And it's implied that there was... erm... penetration...
And didn't DP have a fantasy Dream Sequence about rubbing suntan lotion on Cable when they shared DNA? (Heh heh, "shared DNA" — that's another one) You have to imagine the writers are deliberately redecorating with such blatant Ship Tease...
A recent X-Factor volume had Siryn spend a night with Deadpool and lets her say that it was really great...
Deadpool can see right through the fourth wall and comment about his fanbase. He's aware of you and many other girls/women finding him Fetish Fuel. That kind of mutual semi-vouyerism is probably a fetish on its own
Nightwing, full stop. He inspires lust in every female he's ever met, and a significant fraction of the males.
Planetary. Jakita Wagner. As The Drummer so perfectly sums it up when she asks why he wants her to stomp up and down a bit: "Aside from letting me live out my female stormtrooper fantasies?"
Actually, The Drummer isn't so bad, either, as he seems like he would be extremely... playful. And to round everything off, go for Elijah Snow, too (at least when he's not smoking), for that whole well-dressed, snarkily intelligent, fit-but-not-overmuscled gentleman adventurer thing.
One of the more recent Savage Land Mutates is Leash, a six-footAmazonian Beauty who wears pigtails, tattoos and red leather (shorts, thigh boots, spiked dog collar and half-unlaced bustier), whose power is to slap a "psychic leash" on your "astral body". Hmmm...
Introduced at the same time is Lupa, a well-endowed wolf-girl in a ripped t-shirt and loincloth, who emits mind-control pheromones that turned Beast into her slave (after she slipped him roofies blood lotus flower to weaken his will.) Double hmmm...
Their previous entrants include Lorelei, whose siren song puts males in a trance, a man-frog and a wolf-guy (who gets increasingly more wolflike with every appearance as Furries get more popular his mutation progresses), a blind (seer) Gentle Giant, a man and a woman who both had the power to make you dizzy and nauseous when you look at them, and a muclebound barbarian with four arms. Oh, and a humanoid worm with suckers on his hands who covers you with slime to gain total control of your body while leaving you fully aware. Something for every fetish!
Honestly, for such an innocent series, Sonic the Hedgehog may be one of the best Fetish Fuel comics for furry fans. Even when I was seven, Sally's minimalist outfit, (vest only) and the innocently suggestive (is that possible?) shape of the females chest fur or coloring, drew my attention. Things have only grown with the relatively recent addition of Rouge, a greedy bat with a heart-shaped top.
Possibly the best example of Archie Comics (of all people) embracing this, to some degree, is the 11th Special, aptly titled Girls Rule. Right on the cover you are greeted by five of the then-most-popular female characters, striking impressive poses.
Rouge is quite a popular character for tf fans, as well. Searching Dev Art for Rouge will usually lead you to a lengthy tg/tf/furry/inanimate fetish series..
Julie-Su and Bunnie are both cyborgs; Bunnie's cybernetic parts make her stronger than almost every other character in the series, while Julie-Su is simply bad-ass. (Also, Bunnie's cybernetics were redesigned so they're less clunky than in the early comics / Sat AM, though this Troper isn't sure if that makes her more or less sexy to him.)
For a while, Queen Alicia was floating in a tank in suspended animation; in the earliest issues of that period she was also wearing a skinfur-tight suit.
And of course in the classic issues (as well as Sat AM and Sonic Underground) there's roboticization - which turns people into robotic slaves.
C'mon, there's gotta be some love for Rotor, after his outing by Word Of Gay. I mean, a Hollywood Geektech genius with the libido of a walrus and a lot of time on his hands as a senator and backup Q for the Freedom Fighters. Surely that massive blaster rifle he made, in the earlier comics, isn't the only "toy" he's tinkered around with, in his workshop...
Pretty much every time Captain Atom fought Plastique, she would tie him up naked in an awkward pose or put a restraint collar on him that would block his powers, or something of that nature. They ended up getting married. (Unfortunately, they're now apparently divorced.)
There was a She Hulk comic titled "I Have No Mouth And I Am Mean" wherein a giant, white, man-shaped furball performed various experiments on a group of people. I don't remember a whole lot about it, but I do remember very sterile, vaguely medical bondage and the furball man attempting to turn She Hulk into one of his own race.
This troper once stumbled upon a deviantART gallery with a disturbing amount of commissioned works featuring female comic book and anime characters exposed to Joker venom. White skin, manic grin, green hair. And some where they were just laughing. Oookay...
Uff da. Should not be hot, should not be hot, should not be hot... okay, is. (Of course, I'd be more in the market for male characters, but way to expose me to a weird fetish I didn't know I had.)
This troper can't believe she's actually asking this, but... Link please? ^^;
Grimbor the Chainsman! There is absolutely nothing more that this troper can add that would make him more fetishistic.
Blue Beetle presents: Dani Garrett. The granddaughter of a superhero, a Motor Mouth, possibly a Covert Pervert, geeks out about superheroes and gadgetry, practically the embodiment of Nerds Are Sexy, drives the Bug, and of legal age. Sexy enough to bypass This Troper's blond aversion.
The Spider-man villain Mysterio of all people provided some interesting fetish fuel in a recent team up with the Sinister Six. When Mysterio was using his illusions to disguise the Six while they rode in a bus, he disguised the other five people as catholic school girls, while he made himself appear as a male student, sitting in the middle of them with what can only be described as a very satisfied smile on his face.
Anime looking schoolgirls at that.
The new JSA run has convinced me: yes, Stargirl is cute and Power Girl is Miss Fanservice, but Cyclone is where it is at. RedheadGenki Girl with wind powers? In Harvard? On a theater major? Theming herself after Wizard of Oz and naming her pet monkey after L. Frank Baum? Sorry, that throws my nerd affection and my theater geek affection into overdrive. Add in she's a Legacy Character of her grandmother, the Golden Age Red Tornado... Please god, find this troper however it is Superboy-Prime gets back to New Earth, because I need to get to the Brownstone ASAP!
This troper is 100% straight. And yet...something about Dr Doom...well, I'd let him invade my small corner of the world any time he pleased.
Kid Devil and Miss Martian are fetish fuel of a more innocent variety for both genders over in Teen Titans. One is a Green Skinned Space Babe wearing a Sailor Moon outfit who acts incredibly adorable, the other is a shirtless red demon boy with horns and a tail who is often adorkable.
Their teammate Rose also has few. White hair, one eye, some incredibly well toned muscles, wields sharp pointy objects with a kinky side thrown in. And then there was the issue she got handcuffed naked by Robin in his bed (Not What It Looks Like). Add her to the above two and you get one hot Christmas Colored OT 3.
Caiera the Oldstrong, the Hulk's love interest from Planet Hulk, is the definition of Amazonian Beauty. But more than her amazing body, assertive yet vulnerable personality, and formfitting armor, it was her striking black and green eyes that did it for this troper.
Cute Monster Girl Horridus from Image Comics. She's half-alien lizard, her body is covered in razor-sharp thorns, but she's so cute and sweet that this troper wants to give her a great big hug. The lacerations would totally be worth it. Doesn't hurt that the thorns on her body mean she can't wear much in the way of clothing.
Scott Pilgrim's Kim Pine appeals to this troper's fascination with red hair and freckles. Especially because a few scenes show she's got them on her shoulders and, presumably, elsewhere. Yesssss please.
The Enchantress. Just... The Enchantress. Seriously. This old enemy of Thor's is sexy enough as it is, and if, like this troper, you've got a mind-control fetish, she's sexiness incarnate.
This troper is a cardiophile (has a fetish for hearts and heartbeats). She's not all that familiar with Daredevil, but the thought of being able to secretly listen to another person's heartbeat from a couple feet away? Yowza!
The Avengers's Hawkeye is my fictional crush. He's handsome, skilled, and snarky. Not many guys can rock purple, but Clint does it with ease. And to top it off, any moment he interacts with Captain America is sheer cuteness.
The idea of Superman exposed to Kryptonite makes this troper all hot and bothered. She has a major fetish for big, muscular, strong and/or superpowered male Badasses being put into a severely weakened or unconscious state. In a similar vein, the Death Of Superman arc with Doomsday beating the living crap out of Superman (and tearing his clothes to shreds — another thing this troper has a fetish for)...well, it being several years after He Got Better, it was more Fetish Fuel than anything else.
Even as his status as a scrappy,I'm baffled that no-one's mentioned Superboy Prime yet. Let's see,he's a Woobie Destroyer Of Worlds, has a big S-shaped scar, Wangst...is there anyone with PSL for the kid? (And since he's supposedly part of our universe, it may just be SL)
There's a Minnie the Minx comic in which Minnie gets fat in order to spy on a fat Scottish clan disguised as one of their own, and she gets even fatter when she has to enter an eating contest to prove she's one of them.
There's another comic where Minnie wonders what it would be like to be fat, so she puts on a fat suit. She ends up sweating a lot and having trouble walking.
The Wasp's new look from Uncanny Avengers hits so many of this troper's kinks at the same time; short hair, able to shrink, wings like a fairy, small breasts, and a not giving a damn attitude. Mmm... I'll be in my bunk.
Janet van Dyne occasionally caters to the giantess kink as well as shrinking. Even aside from anything relating to her powers, she's a classy, sexy cougar (one of the older heroines of the Marvel Universe along with Sue Richards) who makes it very clear that she enjoys male attention. She's also worn costumes to cover just about any fetish imaginable.
The tragically short-lived DC superhero parody comic Major Bummer featured Val Andrist, a mocha-skinned teenage girl who wore as her costume a violet skintight leotard/bodystocking with a hole cut out from underboobto navel, socks and chunky high-top tennis shoes. Who can fly.
