    It's a vast improvement over his suit in the first Avengers film, but my favorite is still the one he wore in the first half of The Winter Soldier.

    Well, there are good symbolic reasons not to use that again, though.

    Wanda is clearly based off of her X-Men EVO design.

    I could see that. Although that has what I think this needs - a long jacket (apparently I want a girl with the short skirt and the long jacket).

    Are those plot-point wrist-gadgets she's wearing? Or just decorative?

    Do we have to make this thread about masturbating to random strangers on the internet who don't have jobs where that's the point? I'm sure they would appreciate that all their hard work in making authentic costumes resulted in you pulling out your penis and masturbating to their images.

    Shouldn't these images be taken down given the new rules and the issues we're having at the minute?

    Not really. The above images are all safety in the realm of costumes and character poses done in the comics/cartoons. There isn't anything that is overtly sexualized/NSFW about them. Sure there is a lot of exposed leg but that's not the same as purposefully exposed cleavage or other suggestive poses seen in adult materials.

    The costumes all look great and the cosplayers obviously put a lot of work in to them. That is the classic look for Scarlet Witch. Whedon is doing a riff on the punk/counter culture Scarlet Witch from the X-Men Evolution series. Where Wanda wore a corset, torn pants and torn fishnets clothing at times.

    Maybe we'll see a version of the classic look later on. After all the costumes have certainly changed for the members of the Avengers (Except for Hulk, although he was a new actor) practically every MCU movie (Although with Iron Man, that's a feature of the comics as well).

    The problem is the recent trouble(s) with Google the site has had with T'Bonz saying we should play it better safe than sorry. It's probably arguable the pictures above cross we're trying to stay inside of right now. T'Bonz is going with a "better safe than sorry" approach. I would argue that, right now, the pictures above cross the line that, right now, is erring on the side of caution.

    All of which may be true. However, let's err on the side of caution, okay? You've been given a moment's grace so use it wisely. There won't be any others

    No problem. I had no idea how stringent Google was being about images of that nature. I will adhere to the new rules by Trekbbs and Google from here on.

    Google pulled the ads on another site I frequent - over some pretty inoccuous images. Without the ad money the site nearly folded.

    Google are acting like asses, but it's their money that supports things. What can you do ?

    This isn't caution. This is fear.

    Fear is deserved. Caution is a good thing.
