Do some women find Ashe to be a power fantasy? Almost certainly. But she was made to appeal to men before women.
On a somewhat related note, how do you view Xena in relation to intentions of her being designed as a female power fantasy or as more of a sexual fantasy?

I mean, that's a lot of skin.

A lot of attractive, strong skin.
Revealing male design with lots of strong skin... sounds like they are catering to ladies. Totally works with Manowar, just look at their fanbase demographics :P

They counteracted their good efforts after I saw that Kat snowdown skin.

Edit - To clarify. They made good progress with Vi and she looks hot without being ****ty. Kat is just like **** queen.

Consider how many men would be interested in the them if it was just based off that picture.

This is another case of 'attractiveness to women is a powerfantasy and rolemodeling agent for men'.

It's a strange bias people have, but can be pretty interesting once you see it--

Making characters and personas sexy actually "caters" to both genders.

Anyway, reserving judgment until the splashes are up but this looks pretty damn awesome right now.
Wasn't Riven's bunny skin fan created?

She looks great-- someone posted "what Nami could have been", and it was all topless mermaid, cheese cake pics from the 'net. I'm glad they went this way.
