Now You Can Make An Informed Decision On Which Avenger Has The Best Booty

For great justice

Have you noticed the trend, in lots of comic related art, but specifically in The Avengers’ movie promotional materials? Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has this magnet in her butt that automatically turns it to camera every time a picture of her is taken. Weird, right? Well one artist decided to have a little fun with the trend and give the male Avengers their time in the spotlight. 

Artist Kevin Bolk had this to say about his creation. “I couldn’t help but notice that in most of the ad material, the guys are all in heroic stances but Black Widow is almost always in an impractical, curved-spine ‘booty shot’ pose. Figured I’d flip it around for my lady friends out there. Seemed only fair,” he wrote on his the illustrations DeviantArt page. “Them’s some strong male characters, amirite?

Here’s the original item Bolk took his inspiration from. It was from Russia but we’re not sure if it was actually an official promo piece.

Although not every single image coming out of Marvel’s promotion of The Avengers features Johansson rear end (The Beat has a couple face-forward), we’ve caught a few so far. For instance, here are the first official posters for the film. We’re still debating whether or not Loki is indeed also showing us his butt but ScarJo definitely stands out from the rest of her team.

So, are you totally thrilled you got to see The Hulk showing off his buns of steel or what? Not to mention his duckface.
