>>111327728>Why would anyone wear a leotard to fight crime?
Because they're fighting criminals, so it's the same rationale as athletes.
Look at the Olympics. They all were tight/thin/skimpy clothing for most of the events.
It's not like anyone from Sherlock Holmes to Barbara Gordon need to wear athletic-looking clothing when they're just gathering clues or whatever.
But if there's the expectation that they'd very possibility end up fighting super villains, then yeah they should probably wear clothing that looks more like swimwear.
Also because it's just more fun and visually appealing. Even relatively normal non-insane women like the sexier costumes.
The only people who don't like them are demented shews and white knights who have decided that they can't date attractive women so they may as well suck up to feminists for the rest of their life and hope to get a pity fuck once or twice.
