She-hulk breast self-exam

I will be the first to admit that I find the idea of She-Hulk fondling herself, and the full set of superheroine PSAs about doing breast self-exams probably has its heart in the right place.

However, it gives me pause when I appreciate that a similarly conceived and executed set about testicular cancer would probably not be equally vell-received. Tony Stark fondling himself in the shower might be hot for me, but probably not for most people. And the idea of Nightcrawler giving himself a prostate massage is, well, my cup of tea, but I understand I'm not in a majority.

Also, breast cancer isn't limited to women, but I don't see any male superheroes doing breast exams in this PSA.

I don't know. Long shots of Batman fondling his pecs was the whole point of the third film, wasn't it?

LOL!

Oh I don't know, I suspect that a lot of people would be into one or both of those. *Admitting* to that fact is another story of course.

Well, of course!

I know plenty of women comic readers that would drool right along with the rest of you....

I'm pretty sure you'd be in the majority amongst gay and bi men asked if they want to see a PSA series for testicular and breast cancer starring Batman, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, and Superman.

Though, come to think of it, Wolverine probably bloody well is immune to breast and testicular cancer. Though maybe he'd do a PSA anyway.

For Marvel, it wouldn't be Tony Stark. It would be Hercules.

Or Deadpool.

Actually, I can see Deadpool doing the testicular check. And now I can't UNsee it...

isn't Deadpool basically one big ball of cancer cells? not that this would *stop* him mind, just saying.

If you've seen the reaction people give him when he pulls off his hood, imagine the reactions to a testicular check.

This comes pretty close: http://e621.net/post/show/145863 NSFW obviously.
