I could start this off by launching into another criticism of how I don't think the female Corps members are all that well represented in the new 52, but it is kind of beside the point. In fact there are very few female Corps members of any kind with a prominent role in the DCU now. There is one pretty generic and underutilized one in the Green Lantern Corps (which I have stopped reading), Bleez, Fatality and recently reintroduced Lyssa Drak. Gone are Soranik, Arisia, Iolande and even while Carol Ferris is around she isn't doing a lot and absolutely no costumed heroics. With that Bleez and Fatality are doing well enough as female leads in the new 52 and in fact Bleez has been a pleasant surprise as she is being used in two series and while Fatality is in only one, she still has a decent enough portrayal. Still while reading last week's Green Lantern: New Guardians I did notice something odd. Truthfully it more highlighted something which I had seen the previous issue, but I was not sure would repeat. Essentially Fatality is being used actively in a panel, yet all we see are her breasts (I included the above panels in the scans just in case no one believes me):
In a sense this is not really a big deal, but in another sense it kind of reduces Fatality to nothing more than a sexual object. Of course she doesn't appear this way throughout, but these scenes are kind of blatant. There are of course those who might argue that the artist is trying to save time by not drawing the face, but essentially this reduces her to only a symbol (a sex symbol). If the action instead consistently cut to Kyle and showed only his ring during conversations we would still figure out who is doing the talking, but fans would certainly make mention of the fact that Kyle is more than his ring, that his willpower and discipline is what makes him the hero more so than his powers. In Fatality's case it is even less relevant as her breasts have almost nothing to do with her being a hero (though I suppose they help her being a featured hero.) Not a big deal, but maybe the artist should let her mouth do the talking from now on?
