    This is the infamous Backbreaker pose that is unbelievably common in female comic book characters. The point is to show breasts and butt at the same time. It's everywhere, and it makes me SO MAD. The Hawkeye Initiative is a place to draw attention to ridiculously sexist comic book character drawings by replacing a female in a typical superhero pose with the character Hawkeye.
