* Pick a [[MostCommonSuperpower superheroine]]. Any superheroine over 18 or past puberty at least will have the MostCommonSuperpower, and those that don't will still be supermodel thin and have a tendency for Stripperiffic costumes.
* Almost absolutely all prominent female characters drawn by David Finch easily qualifies.

!!!DC
* Vikki Vale in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' spent the first few pages dressed in nothing but a pink bra and undies talking about how Franchise/{{Superman}} is the "Man of Steel" for other reasons and all they had was a flying bat. When she found out that she had a date with Bruce Wayne, she ended up in very revealing dress. FrankMiller's script for that part reads less like ''Dark Knight Returns'' and more along the lines of [[Webcomic/BetterDays Jay Naylor]].
* ''ComicBook/BlackCanary'' and her famous fishnets costume. As noted in DependingOnTheArtist, some artists have her outfit showing plenty of cleavage. Occasionally the bottom of her uniform will be drawn as either being a thong at the back, or at the least be shown to be riding up quite a bit to emphasize her behind.
* The girls of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham City]].
** Barbara Gordon/Oracle/Batgirl is often described as having a buxom frame, and so she does. She's often designed as a HotLibrarian or with NerdsAreSexy in mind. Despite that, however, she's still a tame example.
** Selina Kyle/Catwoman is...well... ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}, a woman who goes around in tight leather and spends a lot of her time flirting with everyone around her. Even before she wore her now trademark catsuit, she was still quite sexualized. As if to spell it out to readers, in ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'' she escapes a death trap that ripped up her outfit...and shows off an insane amount of skin!
** Both Comicbook/HarleyQuinn and Poison Ivy, the former often wearing a tight jester suit (and switching out that for what can best be described as a bikini designed to resemble her former appearance), the latter wearing next to nothing and looking, usually, like a naked woman with leaves placed in certain points on her body.
** [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]] doesn't strike as an example due to her default design being a skinny young girl covered in scars. Still, her suit really clings to her like anybody else, and when she's not drawn as a skinny girl covered in scars, she's usually drawn like this. [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/945740.html#cutid1 The Cruise issue of her series]] was pretty bad for it though, with her wearing a bikini for most of it (a ''thong'' bikini from the look of it), and later doing her crazy martial arts skills while wearing a dress she shortened, inducing pretty blatant panty shots.
** [[ComicBook/{{Huntress}} Helena Bertineli/Huntress]]. With her short shorts/belly window suit being the main cause. One has to wonder how she can actually stay alive as a BadassNormal while wearing that suit. The artists behind ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey seem to be pretty fond of her rear end as well. Though, that's true for all the Birds.
** Subverted with [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl2009}} Stephanie Brown/Spoiler/Batgirl III]]. She's got a modest, realistic build, her Spoiler suit is designed with practical use in mind rather than sex appeal, while her Batgirl suit is just as practically designed, and most of her civilian appearances are in tomboyish conservative clothes. However, she briefly had a ThongOfShielding over her suit in place of the typical UnderwearOfPower, and while her suits are practical, they're usually just as skin tight as any other superhero suit, and just as susceptible to clothing damage as others. [[{{Squick}} She was also heavily sexualized during the torture scene in War Games]] and her time as Robin, and her Batgirl series seemed quite fond of her in her bedroom wearing short shorts and showing off her butt as much as possible, leading to it being briefly lampshaded, with Oracle noting that people are currently getting a good view of her buttocks, or 'good side' as she put it, while they take pictures.
* Averted in the DC series ''ComicBook/{{Manhunter}}: Street Justice'', with protagonist Kate wearing a full-coverage bodysuit when she fights crime. Granted, she stole it from an evidence locker, but kudos to the author for making her different.
* PowerGirl (pictured) is possibly the MostCommonSuperPower incarnate with her famous CleavageWindow (especially drawn by Amanda Conner).
** Subverted in ''JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'': her body hasn't changed, but she's finally come into her own as a successful warrior and leader, to the point that she is now chairwoman of the JSA. She still provides plenty of fanservice though.
* One of the [[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]] books has a segment set in a strip club.
* Post Crisis Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was a pretty infamous example, what with her cheerleader like costume, being introduced naked and later dressing in low cut jeans with her thong on display, and her constant panty shots when in costume. While most young teenaged girls in comics get treated like this, she does it to such a degree that it made many people uncomfortable, and was the source of many of her criticisms. Editors later issued a demand for this to be limited and/or stopped.
* Starfire aka Koriand'r from ''ComicBook/TeenTitans''. She is a hot alien babe with orange skin, who learned languages by kissing people. Kory is regarded as extremely physically attractive even by the standards of the superhero. Her general lack of modesty is often used for copious {{Fanservice}}, and even her normal hero outfit leaves little to the imagination.
* ''ComicBook/{{Zatanna}}'' is a gorgeous, busty, [[ShesGotLegs leggy]] woman whose outfit is composed of fishnet stockings and top hat. Nobody has ever found reason to complain over Paul Dini's appreciation of the character.
* ComicBook/JusticeLeague member Ice had this problem during ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', as a lot of action scenes had her oddly-used tank top portion of her uniform hiked over her chest.

!!!Marvel
* Comicbook/BlackWidow under the pen of certain artists.
* Carol "MsMarvel" Danvers for a long time was practically the poster girl for this before her "promotion" to being the new Captain Marvel, complete with a ''literally'' full-body costume that covers everything but her head (and then an additional retractable cowl that covers everything except part of her face).
* Elektra is famous for MaleGaze scenes. Elektra's body is prominently featured during fight scenes. When she dodges, artists usually draw her from behind to emphasize her ass. Flying kicks are drawn from the front, effectively becoming full-page crotch shots.
* ComicBook/SheHulk is a [[MostCommonSuperpower bux]][[BoobsOfSteel om]] AmazonianBeauty clad in a LeotardOfPower, get frequent ClothingDamage and at one time provided the page image for Fanservice.
* ComicBook/BettyRoss, especially as Red She-Hulk.
* Franchise/SpiderMan's [[Characters/SpiderManLoveInterests love interests]] are, usually, shown like this.
** Back when Steve Ditko drew the book, not so much since UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode was in effect and they all wore modest dresses, and most of them were in high school. By college, however, characters like Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson were introduced. Gwen, however, stopped being this par for the course of her CharacterDevelopment. Mary Jane, however, kept the revealing clothes and flighty personality even after maturing, though in her case its justified: She's an actress/model, it's literally her ''job'' to be hot. Still, while most superheroines have an ImpossibleHourglassFigure, MJ is almost always a BuxomIsBetter crossed with MaleGaze and ShesGotLegs, and doesn't have the superpowers to justify it. This has, however, been criticised by more than just [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], since they once made a statuette of MJ that got flak because of this (and because [[RealWomenDontWearDresses she looked like she was washing Spider-Man's suit for him]]).
** ComicBook/BlackCat had a suit designed for AbsoluteCleavage, made out of black PVC, and had a build that would require lots of surgery to get in real life, even more so that a lot of other heroes.
** In a very weird way, Marvel has been trying to turn Carlie Cooper into this, most likely to increase her popularity. Low cut jeans, bared midriff, a tattoo that's near her lady bits but still visible in order to increase the midriff, and was probably the only girl in ''Comicbook/SpiderIsland'' shown during the 'Naked New York' scene. However, because people [[CreatorsPet just can't stand her]], its been rather ignored.
* Tigra is a twofer, being a CatGirl who walks around wearing naught but a bikini. Later books have tried to justify this with Tigra saying wearing anything else over a full coat of fur would result in heatstroke, and the bikini is pretty much for modesty's sake.
* Comicbook/{{X-Men}}
** [[Characters/XMen90sMembers Jubilee]] wasn't an example when she was younger, but thanks to growing up and becoming ProgressivelyPrettier, she is now.
** [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Shadowcat]], on the other hand, remains perhaps the only female character in Marvel over the age of twelve to retain her petiteness while having achieved the face of a young woman in her early 20s. Although that's partly due to every writer at Marvel except Creator/JossWhedon and Creator/BrianMichaelBendis having forgotten she existed - and Whedon made sure to give Kitty at least two nude scenes during his run on ''Astonishing X-Men''.
** NewMutants Wolfsbane and (usually) Moonstar are ''usually'' given petite frames and tomboyish haircuts, making them more cute than fanservicey. The few exceptions have either been by bad artists ([[CoughSnarkCough *cough*]]Creator/RobLiefeld[[CoughSnarkCough *cough*]]) and/or just look ridiculous because all the past art has them slender.
** ComicBook/EmmaFrost, especially in the infamous Greg Horn covers. She gets quite a few scenes where she's wearing even less than usual and seems to be fully GenreSavvy about this. [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Doctor]] [[MagnificentBastard Nemesis]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this]] by [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments finding new ways to non-stop insult Frost about this during an entire story, culminating in telling her that if she doesn't immediately follow his orders he will personally destroy every fetish wear store on the planet]].
** Also, [[LeotardOfPower Psylocke]]. Not so much with the MostCommonSuperpower, but the costume she was stuck in for twenty years was pretty {{Stripperiffic}}, giving her what might possibly be [[ThongOfShielding the worst wedgie in the entire Marvel Universe]].
** Not a heroine, but [[ComicBook/{{Inferno}} Madelyne Pryor]], when she became the Goblin Queen, achieved the supreme level of accomplishment in this trope. Her tattered costume featured an open middle that left only the [[{{Underboobs}} tops]] of her breasts covered. Only the cosmic power of the Phoenix Force stood between her and a WardrobeMalfunction of such epic proportions that it would have almost certainly led to a revival of UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode.
** ComicBook/{{X 23}} initially doesn't strike one as this, until you realize that just about every uniform she has (give or take a couple) as well as the majority of her civilian clothes [[BareYourMidriff show off her navel]]. Her civvies also have a tendency to involve short skirts, PaintedOnPants, and [[OfCorsetsSexy corsets]]. Also, being a [[DistaffCounterpart female clone]] of Wolverine, makes the embodiment of a whole category of [[WolverinePublicity fanservice]].
** [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Rachel Summers]] was this during her ComicBook/{{Excalibur}} days. When she was in the X-Men initially, she was a stick thin tomboy wearing very conservative clothes and costumes. Then she got abducted into the Mojoverse, and when she got back her body had become a lot curvier (apparently somebody remembered that she's supposed to look a lot like her mother, Jean Grey). Her costume was now a red, one piece leather catsuit with integrated heels and adorned with spikes. Her off duty clothes were not as risque, but only just.

!!!Other
* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'':
** Veronica. It's pretty much a given that she'll be wearing the most-revealing outfit of any given strip, especially the beach-themed ones. Sometimes she's even been arrested for wearing "indecent" bikinis on public beaches- and the artists show it! Later on, Cheryl Blossom takes her crown.
** Cheryl Blossom defined this in the 1980s (where it got her written out of the books) and '90s. Dan [=DeCarlo=] gave her a Pamela Anderson clone body, with [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure even larger breasts and buttocks]] than was normal for Riverdale girls, and was frequently seen in skimpier clothes than all the others. In one beach storyline, she tried to go ''topless''.
** Melody was this for ''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats'', wearing the skimpiest outfits and drawing all the male attention. She is so beautiful that almost any man who sees her gets DistractedByTheSexy and suffers AmusingInjuries.
* Due to ArtEvolution in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', a siginificant portion of the comic (Issue 60s-180s) turned the resident heroines Bunnie Rabbot and Sally Acorn from chibi FunnyAnimal into Stripperiffic PettingZooPeople. The former wears bunny outfit's top, the latter is next to being literally [[WalkingShirtlessScene fur-naked]]. While it was toned down post-180s, it was pretty much rendered null after the ContinuityReboot.
* Red Monika from ''Comicbook/{{Battlechasers}}''. Huge boobs, ridiculous figure, big red hair and stripperific outfits? She's pure Ms. Fanservice.
* Ms. Buxley, from ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey''. She was even more so earlier in the 1970s and '80s.
* Panda Delgado from ''ComicBook/BodyBags''. She's only 14, but she sports a serious pair of breasts and wears a super-short cheerleader skirt and skintight sweater set. The skirt is so short the reader gets panty shots when she's standing still.
* Thorn from ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'', not so much in early chapters, though. In later chapters, you get to see her bare legs quite a bit, and almost a little boobage due to ClothingDamage. There's even a gag (that actually ''is'' in an early chapter) where Fone Bone is nervous enough to accidentally eat a bar of soap because he's taking a bath with Thorn. (And before that, he watches a bird that seems to be there for the sole purpose of averting Fone's gaze away from Thorn while she's getting nude, before she goes into the water.) [[LoveAtFirstSight Needless to say, Fone Bone takes an instant liking to her.]]
* La Mulatona from ''Clemente''. Including when they show Clemente swimming between her breasts (a common scene in macrophile porn) as a running gag.
* In the ''ComicBook/{{Den}}'' comics, any woman from Earth arriving in Neverwhere becomes this; buck naked, buxom and liking it.
* Druuna, from the Italian graphic novel series of the same name, is either naked or wearing a skimpy tank-top-and-thong combo roughly ninety percent of the time.
* Comicbook/{{Empowered}} herself is arguably a deconstruction of this trope, being a FauxActionGirl whose suit [[VaporWear tends to rip up at the worst possible moment]] and [[BoundAndGagged being tied up and gagged]], and thus the center of many people's attention left her in a neurotic mess of self-esteem and body-image issues, and yes -- she does provide most of the fanservice in the series, and [[MetaGuy is fully aware of that, making her an even bigger neurotic mess]]. Ocelotina on the other hand intentionally plays to this trope, pretending to be a superheroine and getting into the same situations Emp does for profit.
* Liz, Jon Arbuckle's girlfriend in ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''. Seen [[http://images.ucomics.com/comics/ga/2010/ga100726.gif here]]. Yes, ''Garfield'' has fanservice. It's a new day. She's played in the movies by Creator/JenniferLoveHewitt. So, yeah.
* Gaturranta in the very first strips of ''Gaturro''.
* Irish Coffee's stripper girlfriend.
* The British wartime newspaper comic ''Jane'' featured a title character who was always willing to help the war effort--which usually involved losing her clothes in some way. In RealLife, it was claimed that this actually helped boost troop morale. This may have been the first newspaper strip ever to include ''complete nudity'', and was seen as unbelievably daring at the time.
** There were rumours that when she appeared completely starkers it would be D-Day. Sir UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill personally intervened on the matter to make it so.
* For the most part, Anderson in ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' doesn't provide much fanservice other than being hot in general. Her own spinoff, however, is a different story. In the first collected volume alone, she spends half a story naked in a coma (she is mostly covered by a sheet, but still), has another judge walk in on her in a shower, and goes clubbing in a low-cut, tight minidress.
* OlderThanTelevision: Almost any female character in ''ComicStrip/LilAbner'' (which started in 1934) who wasn't an old lady, especially Daisy Mae, Stupifyin' Jones, Moonbeam [=McSwine=] and the Wolf Gal.
* ''Little Ego''. Ego exists solely to lose her clothes and get caught in erotic situations.
* Tiffany, The AlphaBitch from ''ComicStrip/{{Luann}}'', is this for the strip, giving much SnarkBait to online fans, considering the head writer is over 60, and Tiffany's a teenager. One memorable strip featured her in a ''string bikini'', and most of the time she's just in a cheerleader outfit.
* ''ComicStrip/ModestyBlaise'' frequently depicted its title character in various states of undress, contrary to her name.
* Aunt Fritzi in ''Nancy''.
* Cythea in ''Necrophim'', a beautiful succubus who never wears any clothes.
* Brooke [=McEldowney's=] comic strip ''ComicStrip/NineChickweedLane'' had, and continues to have, a strong fanservice element to it in its depictions of female characters, most notably Edda. The later spin-off ''Webcomic/{{Pibgorn}}'' appears to be some 80% fanservice: The starting point of this strip is a ''menage trois'' among an unassuming bespectacled pianist and musical arranger, and ''two'' devastatingly gorgeous supernatural entities who are devoted to him: a dark succubus called Drusilla and a red-haired faerie called Pibgorn. Neither entity wears very much at the best of times and the casual reader might suspect the script is written to get them naked as often as possible. Reprints of the strip in comic book form tend to add extra bonus material.
* PhantomLady has been frequently called this, even in the real world US Congress. Her appearance was always fan services but her classic stories all tended to de-emphasize it.
* Toola from ''ComicBook/PocketGod''. Booga and Klak went gaga over her at first sight. In fact, the creators of the comic admitted that she was designed as "the hottie".
* Deena Pilgrim from ''Comicbook/{{Powers}}''. Putting aside her proclivity for wearing what she calls [[BareYourMidriff "little belly shirts"]], it's rare for her to go more than five issues without being shown either topless or completely nude. Also Callista Secor, a.k.a. [[spoiler: the new Retro Girl]], who wears tight shorts and a halter top as part of her costume. However, when she realizes what she looks like on TV (after her first escapade is taped), she's not happy.
-->'''Callista:''' God! You can totally see my asscrack! Now they're zooming in on it! Fuckers.
* Comicbook/RedSonja.
* June Morgan, the wife and nurse of ''ComicStrip/RexMorganMD'', drawn with a Patrick Nagel face and... prominent attributes.
* Most of Dr. Love's appearances in ''Frank Miller's [=RoboCop=]'' have her wearing various tight, cleavage-revealing outfits while doing provocative positions. Her assistant pulls off the same thing in the background at one point.
* Wally Wood's ''[[ComicStrip/SallyForthWood Sally Forth]]'', done originally for military papers, used any excuse to get the [[InnocentFanserviceGirl buxom but naive]] titular character out of her clothes. Not to be confused with the present-day strip of this name, which is about a fully clothed housewife.
* While ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' features many attractive women, Envy Adams is noted in Volume 6 to be "[[InformedAttractiveness the perfect woman]]," with the proclamation being accompanied by her measurements: Bust 999, Waist 999, Hips 999.
** Ramona also gets a lot of this kind of attention, and scenes of her in lingerie.
* Durham Red in ''Comicbook/StrontiumDog'' generally wears a low-cut uniform and stands in a manner that emphasises her [[ShesGotLegs legs]].
* Parodied and subverted in ''Comicbook/TheBoys'' where all the superheroines working for Vought American are turned into Ms. Fanservice as part of their image for merchandising. Takes a considerably darker turn when VA give Starlight a makeover consisting of high heels and a costume composed of about three grams of fabric due to them wanting her character to have been [[RapeAsBackstory raped as a child]] and turn into a sex-crazed slut as a result. It doesn't go down well with her, especially when she reveals she was indeed sexually assaulted.
