Adam Hughes Marvel Swimsuits, Part 1: Sue Storm, The Wasp, Scarlet Witch, She-Hulk

Adam Hughes has always excelled at drawing babes and adding a little humor to his compositions as well.  In 1994 he contributed a number of stellar pinups for the fourth Marvel Swimsuit Special--which took place in Attilan and the Blue Area of the Moon.

Namor and Sue Storm by Adam Highes Marvel Swimsuit 1994

The cover featured Sue Storm getting her freak on with Namor the Sub-Mariner.  Is there any reason why Sue wouldn't want to have a fling with the undersea prince?  She looks pretty fantastic and her leg is slightly opaque to reveal Namor's speedo.

The Wasp by Adam Hughes Marvel Swimsuit 1994

Janet Van Dyne looks pretty luscious in this one piece outfit.  My first impression was there is nothing funny going on here.  But look behind the Wasp to see the bulging thongs behind her, belonging to Wonder Man and Captain America.

Scarlet Witch by Adam Hughes Marvel Swimsuit 1994

This Scarlet Witch pinup is really clever.  She's not wearing a swimsuit per se.  Wanda has used her magic to disassemble her costume--helmet, gloves, cape, etc--leaving only her red centerpiece intact.  How many thirteen year old boys fantasized about undraping the Scarlet Witch?  Adam Hughes sure did.

She-Hulk, Lockjaw by Adam Hughes 1994

Here is the funniest piece of this 1994 set.  The Sensational She-Hulk--a must-have babe for any swimsuit special--sitting on top of my favorite dog in the Marvel Universe: Lockjaw!  Clearly, Jen has been using Lockjaw's teleportation powers to zip around to the best beaches.  They've been to Rio and Jamaica and god knows where else, from the stickers plastered on Lockjaw's back.  Jen's bag is packed with thongs, and the creepy Watcher is lurking in the background on the left.  I pity poor Lockjaw, he just looks exhausted from hauling Jen all over the world!  Nuff said.

No, her leg is slightly transparent. It is mostly opaque.
Just wanted to point out that not only are there banana-hammocks in the background of the Janet pic, but also we can't tell what part of Collossus' anatomy Janet is perched on.
Somethin' saucy, no doubt. :)

  1. Err.. to the first picture, "opaque" is the opposite of is happening with her leg.

    Translucent might be more fitting.
