A Comics-Based Makeover

From the “Geeks Are Sexy” website: cosmetics from MAC Cosmetics inspired by the comics character Wonder Woman.

And just what would that have to do with hypnosis? Well, remembering Wonder Woman’s magic lasso, which had the power to force anyone caught in it to obey her will (or any one else who was holding it, as she was often the one caught in its coils) and I just had to think that just about any product related to the character could be hypnosis-related. And sure enough, one part of the line is: “Obey Me” nail polish. I’m sure the name can be explained by the characterization of Wonder Woman as a strong female character with a powerful charisma but the hypnotic (and bondage-related) history of the character is just too strong to deny.

The line is set to be released on February 10th

Commentary: Please, can someone drive a stake through the heart of the 60’s era “Bang! Pow! Wham!” comics imagery and references? They were an embarrassment even back then, a by-product of the over-the-top campishness of the “Batman” TV series that became seemingly irretrievably connected with comics as a whole and embedded in the media whenever comics are discussed even to this day.
