She-Design/He-Design: Nate Snareser’s Justice League!

Note: This gender-bent version of the Justice League by Nate Snareser takes the opportunity to revise the costume for their new body-types, resulting in some inspired revisionist history. Click to enlarge, and check out that Batwoman and the Green Lantern! – Chris A.

  1. Great designs, the Superwoman and Batwoman are great translations. The GL falls a little short, but it picks back up with the Lady Flash. A runner actually justifies running shorts and a t. The Wonderman is awesome. He actually looks very Mediterranean, 300-esque and most likely to beat your ass to death. I was thinking the she-design on Aquaman would actually justify a bathing suit look then rethought a wetsuit would be more in keeping with the long sleeves.

  2. I love these designs, and with Ms. Martian in play (she’s still around right?) I would love to see her costume move in that direction. This is by far my favorite male Wonder Woman. And the female Batwoman Beyond is totally working for me. Terry’s body was always more lithe than Bruce. I don’t know about the Flash though, a little too Jessie Quick for my taste.

  3. These are great, the sort of thing I come to PR to see. The Batwoman doesn’t fit with this group, since all of the others are based on the regular characters she should as well. Otherwise very nice. Flash & Aqua-Lady are my favorites.

  4. OMG! The Snareser, first off everybody do yourself a favor and check out his site, his other designs and pieces are amazing! I’ve been a fan for years.
    As for the designs themselves, I think they are all great, Im especially loving the BatWoman Beyond and the Wonderman look. The Superwoman one isnt doing it for me though, not quite feeling it and on the AquaLady either the sleeves or pant legs need to go. Also for Green Lantern I would love to see the green parts on her light up like a tron suit.

  5. Eh, the art’s good and the designs are nice, Wonderman and Lady!Flash are both excellent, but Martian Manhunter: Female Edition, looks way too much like Miss Martian and Batwoman is clearly derivative of Batman Beyond.
    I’ve never been into the gender-swap things though; they’re just strange and unnecessary.
    The art is good though.

  6. Great drawings!
    The design, however, is off.
    I specifically despise the Batwoman. No ends justify complicating the sleek looks of the Batman Beyond Costume.
    Same with the other costumes: way too busy. What’s with Superwoman’s paneled skirt? What – if any – good is that thing doing?

  7. Only part that seems unneeded is the odd skirt-thing on Superwoman. I like all of these though, and that’s just a minor nitpick. the Wonder Man one is my favorite though, and if I were a super hero that would be my costume.

  8. Maybe cuz… y’know, I like being upraised nail: I feel like WonderMan could stand to be a little more man-pretty and Colossus of Rhodes-like, bare-armed and striking.

  9. Honestly I think the Batwoman Beyond design works very well in this group. The others all have a similar sharpness to their uniform design and I think the Batman Beyond suit fits.

  10. Superwoman- not sure if what purpose the skirt provides, but everything else from the waist up looks great.
    GL- the cuts in the coloring aren’t very flattering for the female form, it’s weird to see random patches of green everywhere except her boobs and stomach.
    Batwoman- fantastic for Terry, not for Bruce, but a fantastic design nonetheless
    Wonderman- for some reason, it reminds me of a Medieval Knight rather than a Greek Gladiator, but I still like, strong, scary, and very warrior like
    Flash- there we go! an actual design that uses running shorts well! 2nd favorite design of this bunch
    Fem Martian Manhunter- doesn’t really look all that different from Miss Martian
    Aquawoman- surprise, surprise, my fav redesign! Not a big fan of the scaly underroos but that headpiece and top are gorgeous and definitely work!

  11. At first glance I see a warrior prince surrounded by six gorgeous, powerful women, which makes it seem like an adolescent male’s fantasy; this in turn leads to re-evaluation of the gender issues within the canonical JLA.

  12. Nene:
    Wonderman- for some reason, it reminds me of a Medieval Knight rather than a Greek Gladiator, but I still like, strong, scary, and very warrior like .

    Scaled armored arms and straight double hedged, cross sword… not that amazons wearing Greek-roman typed stuff makes any more sense to me.

  13. “this in turn leads to re-evaluation of the gender issues within the canonical JLA.”

    It would actually be pretty funny to see the JLA re-conceived as the inverse of the Charlie’s Angels dynamic, with the dudes recast as scantily-clad twinks who fawn on Wonder Woman and do her bidding…

  14. these look really great! Most are a bit obvious thought. One thing I like is the chain for Wonder Man. It’s a nice change for the male version. I could only see the lasso for a male if you went in a western direction. Not sure why a lasso works for a woman… but it just does for me.

  15. Ryan: Not sure why a lasso works for a woman… but it just does for me.

    asides the obvious bondage connotations, rope is close to weaving and clothing, something much closer to women history than say, metal work.
