Captain America & Shang Chi Sparring

Time for a double dose of Avengers beefcake! In Secret Avengers #9, Captain America & Shang Chi enjoy some downtime in the gym, letting off steam in a kickboxing match. I think I can hear the fangirls (and gay fanboys) squeeing. Many thanks to Brooklyn for sharing these scans with us.

Nice! I love how the artist (Mike Deodato?) drew Steve and Shang Chi with different body types, as Shang Chi should always be drawn slimmer than someone like Cap.

Yup this by Deodato, and while I think he's a great artist, I do have a bone to pick with him. Why does he always forget to draw men's nipples? If you're gonna do beefcake, do it right!

They had them surgically removed to improve aeordynamics?

DAN said...

There's an answer for everything, HA! ;) In all seriousness I've just accepted that nipples often don't appear on comic book guys for whatever dumb reason, artists must think nipples are too scandalous or something or they're just lazy, lol.

Well, the newer comics are usually more anatomically correct, read: shirtless men have nipples! But the older, pre-bronze age comics usually feature men with no areolas, which really is a pet peeve of mine. It seems that male character in comics weren't considered sexy like their female counterparts until the late 70's to early 80's, when artists like George Perez & Neal Adams started drawing sexy women and men.

Okay, I won't go into what I think about Deodato's art (too dark!!!) but I will just say, this is one of the hottest scenes in a comic I have seen. The only thing that could make it better would be if Steve helped Shang to his feet and then gave him a kiss on the mouth.

Wow, that would make an excellent slashfic!
