Actually, aside from Obelix are all fictional viking-ish characters. Starting from the lower left corner: Obelix , Marvel's Thor , Vicky the viking (strangely blonde) , Hagar the Horrible, , the blonde guy behind the shield I don't know and Stoic the Vast from How to Train Your Dragon

For those like myself, who like a bit of hard spaceship SF combined with superpowers, here's an image taken in the utility airlock on Deck 7 of a Scalantran ship.

The Scalantrans make everything as small as they can, and they are already a small species compared to humans, which makes their ships a tight fit for the uber-tall Velorian Protectors who often hitch rides with them.

Here we see Jana Ester'all, a Protector to her new assignment after having graduated from the Velorian Training Academy, floating in hard vacuum the open airlock, her legs dangling over the side of the ship. She's stepping out for a "breath of fresh air", so to speak. Not for her, but for everyone else.

She's wearing the latest in Velorian combat uniforms, which are infamous for covering as little as possible. After all, indestructible fabric is very hard to come by these days.

The human crew-members serving on the Scalantran ship have been struggling for weeks to pay attention to their work while inhaling her pheromones in the closed spaces, so venting her and her irresistible natural perfume out the airlock gives them a break from the constant tension.

Being a Velorian, she tries to be as considerate as she can for the human crew, but human men have their limits even then. A few days snuggled up to the warmth of the main engine exhaust will be good for everyone.

Please forgive the quality... I'm not an expert with Photoshop. But it is a very large image, so please, click and enjoy.

Kerry Green is probably what a super-Amazon should look like, but at this point, I'll take Gal Gadot's portrayal.

But I've been back and forth on this many times. Sometimes I think superhumanly strong characters should look superhumanly strong with bulging muscles and throbbing veins. Other times, just being fit and athletic and slender is more in keeping with superhuman portrayals.

Does their strength come from having larger or fundamentally more efficient supermuscles, or from having muscles that are made of entirely different stuff?

I don't like relying on magic or TK or whatever to give them their strength, so in the end, it comes down to what those muscles are made of.

I built the whole AU around the idea that Supremis were made of different stuff (a Galen/human hybrid).. That while they didn't always have bigger muscles (at least when relaxed -- expansion was double that of a fit human), but their muscles were harder and made of vastly more yet thinner strands with radically different contractile abilities. One Supremis muscle strand is equal to a thousand finely conditioned human muscle strand.

But in the end, that didn't answer the question whether they looked stronger or just WERE stronger.

That debate still goes on in my head today.

Kerry Green versus Gal Gadot captures the essence of both my confusion and my fascination.

It would be an interesting poll to see how SWM's members see it. The Who Looks More Like Wonder Woman should, Kerry Green or Gal Gadot poll.

My take has always been that they should look fit, but not musclebound -- like runners or ballerinas, not weightlifters.

Tetsuko works (and she rocks) in DCM's world. But only in Ďavid C. Matthews comic book imagery style (which is great by the way), In the real world, yes Gal Gadot has a nice figure, but I think I'm leaning towards the West twins for the superstrong look.

I agree on David C. Matthews' images. They tickle one side of me.

But I could never write a story with one of his characters. They are too over the top. And besides, their secret identity disguises would be effing impossible! <grin>

In the end, my fantasies are always tickled the strongest when my Velorians look sort of like this:

You know those strut assemblies hooked to the front wheels of your car? Those things that are nearly indestructible? Not so much for her.

Charlize doing her thing during the Hancock movie filming. Right before she threw the truck at Hancock.

That must have been a fun set to work on.

There were some great comics back in the 1980's. Here's the cover to a mini-series from 1988 that I really liked:
