(may contain a spoiler or two, just in case)
Ho boy….I know I wrote about how they ruined Catwoman’s look in Arkham Knight. Now I haven’t even played this. But after enjoying the Arkham games and due to me liking Spiderman equally as a hero franchise, I wanted to learn about this game. So it seems like this game is again plagued by the whole Sarkeesianite “desexualization”. They did Black Cat wrong, but I’ll admit she still looks awesome. They did Mary Jane even wronger…. and I don’t know if I can consider it forgivable…But it pales in comparison to what they did to Silver Sable. Good God, what were they thinking! Sable’s not exactly my favourite character but they really did a number on her look.
OK so lets start where we need to:
THIS….is Silver Sable!!
The tight SHINY leotard (SILVER Sable?) (….and the times she wore a dress….oh my god….). The long voluminous hair…(there were times when it was shorter but it was more stylish). Also take note the throwing star dagger thingies…”chai” I believe they’re called…she carries on her person. It’s not a fetish or anything they’re just cool, and a trademark of her costume.
When I saw the Silver Sable for the ps4 game I damn near felt sick. I mean yeah she’s still an attractive woman but by mere comparison to her past self….this is an ABOMINATION!
They give her a suit that’s loose fitting and worse yet, plain grey with no “chai” on it. They give her a namby-pamby-ass Karen haircut. And Sable did wear a jacket….but not a fucking TRENCH COAT! (Ok I saw one drawing with her wearing a trench). And you couldn’t make it SILVER?
This whole thing screams an extreme attempt to desexualize her, to suck as much “male gaze” as they can from her. A massacre scene courtesy of Sarkeesianite wokeness.
And INB4 “U jUsT WanNa fAp 2 VidyA GaEm”……
Congratulations, woke devs, by removing what made her look sexy you also removed what ALSO made her look POWERFUL, COOL and BADASS!
You couldn’t have the shiny suit cause that’s too much like latex fetish gear, so instead we get Grey Pajamas Sable. Don’t want her looking like a pornstar…so instead of a hairdo that radiates “I’m too much woman for you to handle” you make her a fucking soccer mom. You put that trenchoat there so men literally can’t ogle her ass, but while that coat may be cool in the matrix…it’s not Silver Sable!
“Muh dick” aside, she’s so BLAND! So DRAB!
And from what I read, many players didn’t like her that much. They seem to have a problem with the fact that Spiderman got his ass kicked by a normal woman with no special powers. Well just maybe it was because she looked too normal for her character. Now OG Sable… more than just “sexy schmexy”…that look says she’s THAT BITCH who can go toe to toe with Spidey.
Look, sexy women have always been a part of the entertainment value of comics, I’m not ashamed of that. Shit like this just puts such a damper on things. It just isn’t the same. But what really leaves a bitter taste in my mouth is that its all done in the name of IMO, a terrible ideology.
OK….now take your fingertips off the keyboard for just a second. Before you hatetype me: despite my vitriol….this is JUST MY OPINION. If you honestly feel that this look is better I’m open to hearing your explanation. I will RESPECT your opinion. I’m okay with dissent so long as you don’t directly attack my character.
