Look, I'm not going to run up-and-down screaming "sexism" or "J'Accuse!" or anything like that.
But it's funny. C'mon.
You have all these JLA'ers in bondage and the focus is on the Canary/WW/Vixen spread-eagle trifecta.
To be fair, an artist many times is given the script -- sans significant "camera angles" -- and is told, simply, "draw something cool."
And so they do.
That said, it is writer Dwayne McDuffie himself -- who I always believe is aware of these cringe-worthy bits of comicbookdom and refers to/apologizes for them in his books, who has the last word:
It's ok, Dwayne, we know it wasn't your idea; you just got the art and had to start scripting it.
