From what I've been told, the comic book that KICK-ASS
was based on barely made a blip on the radar of most hardcore comic book fans. But since this is the 100TH Edition of Battle of the Babes and the movie is being released tomorrow, I thought it would be good to mesh the two, screw around with it a bit, use a more popular comic book series and come up with every guy's dream = having to choose which anatomically perfect hand-drawn babe he'd love to be the real vixen in his bed. (BIG Props to the lady who helped me with this, Niki - Miss Beatrix Kiddo - our gorgeous and knowledgeable JoBlo editor and fave She-Shmoe!)
Everyone loves a queen. The thing that gets to me about Madelyn Frost is that she had a pretty messed up plot story in the X-men world. Ending up married to a heartbroken Cyclops and bearing his child even though he still pines for his lost love Jean Grey, turning away from her as Phoenix because he just can't seem to love a woman right, being as tunnel-visioned as he is. But after reading up on the history of this sexy redhead, I learned that later in the series she returns as the Red Queen and her Sisterhood of Mutants with her mind set on learning how to transfer the mind of one dead mutant into the body of another mutant who I decided to feature in this battle since it's only fair that after having someone brainwash you, you've got to get a fair chance at the Schmoes grading your hotness.

Emma Frost, first know as the White Queen (because, as mentioned above, everyone really does love a queen) and being the babe who can really read your mind, Emma's been through some men in her time, including hooking up with one certain billionaire who is making a comeback on the big screen this summer. In one of the weird plot twists which came about during the several incarnations of her character, Frost developed a secondary mutant trait of being able to have her skin turn into a diamond hard surface. (Which just starts making me mad about how she shouldn't have even been in the WOLVERINE movie and not as a teenager and not with the secondary trait, and... damn, they really screwed up that movie, didn't they?) I don't have to be a huge comic book fan to see why Emma is such a hottie. I would in order to understand why she later hooks up with Cyclops, since, let's face it, the dude comes off like a whiny douche. But since blondes are in favor, we can't go without one this Battle.

And now we come to little Miss Elizabeth Braddock, aka Psylocke. I feel for her like one must feel for Vivienne when she is overshadowed by her fraternal twin Knox (because a boy Brad baby is going to get a lot of attention in the future) since Psylocke originally was just a side character to her own frat-twin, Captain Britain. As time passed in the Marvel Universe, she transformed into the crazy woman who could not just read your mind, but move things around the room to bash against it. (Telepathic and Telekinetic... awesome sauce!) Sure, she gets royally screwed over by the Red Queen in a story arc, but the woman worked over Sabretooth single-handed. Now if THAT had made it into the WOLVERINE movie, I might have been more entertained. This hottie kicking down Liev's snarky mental doors? Sign me up for that.

I know this is unconventional, but I'm in that kind of mood. Would you want a normal chick who's driven crazy by her husband's abandonment and ready to screw with dead bodies... a chick who can read your mind and get harder than you can or a babe who can do all kinds of tricks with a single thought?
