Masks Off #40! – One of the weirdest unmaskings in comic history! [Batwoman]

Today, this is post 1 of 2 for today!

First I wanna present one of the weirdest unmaskings in comic history!

In this old comic Kathy Keene is married to Bruce Wayne and wants to assist him as a crime fighter.

She puts on a Batman costume she fixed so that it would fit her and becomes the first Batwoman.

But soon there is trouble….

Well, that is weird for quite some reasons!

Seemingly her cowl isn’t attached to her cape! Why is that? And it just flies away? It doesn’t tear or rip?

This way it looks like her cowl was some kind of hat without a chin strap or a connection to the cape.

And you clearly see the age of this comic, she is a rather helpless woman, stumbles on the scene, calls Batman “darling”, gets unmasked and thereby ruins his carreer as well…just in a matter of seconds.

The current Batwoman (from the comics and the TV show) was a highly modified version of this one and debuted in 2006.

 

I used to know from which comic issue this was taken….

Can someone who knows help out here? I would add that info to the post.

And now I wanna present a newer and modified version that focuses on the UNMASKING from a talented artist made on DeviantArt:

In this one the whole cape flies away, what makes at least a lot more sense!

However “unmasked by a wind machine” is still a very ODD unmasking type 😉

You should check out more of his work, as he focuses on masked heroines and their unmaskings:

What do you think of this unmasking and the different version of this scene?

Masks off! #39 – Catwoman with severe “Mask damage” …and more missed opportunities

[2nd post for today]

Time for another issue of “Masks off!”  !

This time it’s about Catwoman.

In the issue from this week, Catwoman ends up in a room with two grenades! (early in the comic)

She survives, but the explosion badly rips her mask, and so she runs around with it for the rest of the issue 😉

I wanna show 3 scenes with 8 pages. There are more, of course, but I won’t show the complete comic here.

You may know by now that I love damaged masks, so the comic starts really good!

But again, it’s a shame that no one uses this opportunity for an easy unmasking.

In the 2nd scene, where she fights against the woman, that woman has her hand on her mask once, and then she even grabs the hair that is exposed by the mask damage.

But….again, the villain doesn’t unmask the heroine (I would count Catwoman into that category, 51% heroine/ 49% villainess)!

Really frustrating…. well, perhaps next time.

This is the comic with more interesting pages:

Catwoman 015

Masks off! #38 – Spider-woman gets unmasked…and more!

It’s been nearly one year since the last “Masks off!” post…time to change that!

I have known the “highlight picture” of this comic for years, but I never thought about posting it. I guess I just forgotto post it.

Lucky for us, a friendly guy reminded me of this scene…thanks a lot!

And this scene has a lot to offer! A sexy Spider-woman, some peril scene, and even an unmasking……an unmasking of a special kind!

A little background info: Peter was ordered by his newspaper to make pictures of Spider-man and Spider-woman (who seems to be a criminial), masked and if possible, even UNMASKED!

Well, this unmasking is a rare one!

Unmasked by accident/bad luck. It wasn’t his intention to unmask her. But as her mask ……falls off/slips out of place…. during the fight, he took the chance to take pictures of her unmasked face 🙂

I love the action and peril scenes with Spider-woman. We don’t actually see the unmasking, “only” the result…but nevertheless it is a verrrry interesting scene.

I like the ending as he destroys the pictures of her unmasked face as he realises she isn’t an enemy and actually saved his life.

In case you wanna check out the whole comic, it is:

Masks off! #37 – Batwoman unmasked by Batarang!

[Post 1 of 2 for today]

Well, today is “Batwoman-day” on Maskripper to celebrate the ….GREAT news from the last weeks.

For starters a scene that I didn’t post back then (don’t know why…guess I forgot) but it fits really good to this occasion.

And here is the scene:

Detective Comics 938-015

(click on the arrows to get to the other pages)

Well, a very quick unmasking…but I really like that image where her mask drops. Great facial expression.

I often wonder how Batwoman’s mask is attached?

Is is just on the head by the connection with her wig?

Is there some sort of fixation on her suit (on the material that covers her neck)?

Hard to tell how “realistic” this unmasking is…but is is well drawn.

What do you think?

Masks Off! #36 – Black Scorpion unmasked! [Comic]

Many of you folks know the Black Scorpion TV-series. But I bet that only a few know the Black Scorpion comics.

Well there are only 5 to my knowledge, but of course there is an unmasking in it 😉

Check it out:

Solid unmasking! Always good if the unmasker already know the person that he unmasked. 🙂

 

Masks Off! #35 – Mask damage, gassing and “mask talk” with Batgirl

Here we have pictures from 2 comics. In this storyline Batgirl’s mask gets damaged, she is gassed by her own father and has a nice “mask talk”.

It’s the Stephanie Brown version.

Quite a lot good stuff for just two comics 🙂

Masks Off! #34 – Batgirl and Batwoman VS Azrael (incl. an UNMASKING)

Another good comic scene was released in the last weeks. In this one Batgirl and Batwoman fight VS Azrael. And he is a great opponent!

But check it out!

Detective Comics (2016-) 961-009

(click to enlarge – 6 pages)

Well, that’s a fight!

Unfortunately there are no pages left out here. First I thought I skipped a page where Batgirl’s mask is ripped….but they just skipped that 🙁 . DAMN!!!!!!

But with a little imagination…. Batgirl’s full face mask leave so much oppotunities for a great unmaskings/mask damege/mask ripping. And it is a really well made fight sequence with two masked women. So, I shouldn’t complain. My two favorite masked heroines 🙂

Here can you buy the whole comic:

Masks Off! #33 – Mantra disguised

In this episode of “Masks off” I would like to present Mantra!

She normally has some kind of magic mask/costume, but in this scene, she needs to disguise herself as one of the bad guys/girls.

She steals the costume and mask (and gas mask?) of the evil villainess 🙂

Nice disguise!

Of course I would have prefered to see the actual unmasking, instead of “reading” it. But it’s a great costume and maskS that she puts on there 🙂

Masks Off! #32 – Catwoman unmasked (somehow)

Hey folks, long time there was no new material “Masks off!”, my little “unmaskings in comics”-section.

Now I do have something.

The next gallery has all the catwoman/selina pictures from 2 comics, but check it out…

Well, isn’t that weird?

[Spoilers ahead]

[Spoilers ahead]

[Spoilers ahead]

Bane seems to know who catwoman is. The recognise Selina with her wig on (she isn’t shown with it before…). The “unwig/unmask” her, put her in her Catwoman suit (?????? WHAT?!!!), tie her up, and in the next picture she is free again…. A lot isn’t shown in these comics.

Hmhmh, all pretty weird!

Now I wonder what happens next. Will Bane get revenge on her?

Perhaps he will rip her mask off…it’s only a slight chance, but that would be GREAT!

We will see in 10 days…. I will update you folks.

Masks Off! #31 – Spider-Gwen unmasked (3)!

Yes, it’s Spider-Gwen again! Another unmasking scene awaits, and with no doubt the best of the 3 I posted! Read carefully and you will have some nice lines as well 😉

Here it is, 6 full sized pages for you:

Great stuff! I love her expression and his smile after he took the pictures!

All in all the Spider-Gwen comics doesn’t look that great (the art style) but they surely have some nice unmaskings in them. And some evil Frank Castle who is really motivated to prove who Spider-Gwen really is under that mask. 🙂

 

Masks Off! #30 – Spider-Gwen unmasked (2)!

So, again Spider-Gwen and her sexy full face mask are in danger!

She fights the green goblin. She knows who’s under his mask be he doesn’t know who Spider-Gwen is….and he wants to find out 😉

WOW! I love her inner dialog where she thinks about unmasking herself to him (first page!). And later the fight scenes…great!

And the unmasking… very good!

Here is the link to the comic

 

Masks Off! #29 – Spider-Gwen unmasked!

It is really, really time for a new post for the “Masks Off!” -series.

In this one Spider-Gwen is already weakened by some evil gas as suddenly Frank Castle aka “the punisher” appears.

He’s a cop (on earth-65) and wants to catch her! And he wanna know who’s under that mask… 😉

Here are the pictures, enjoy!

Keep an eye out for her inner dialog, really good stuff.

Great unmasking! Good have used a little more dialog, but you can’t have everything 😉

And an unmasking with a full face mask is always much more interesting… than most others.

 

Masks Off! #27 – Two unmaskings and a Spider-girl

For today I have two scenes with Spider-girl! Two scenes where her mask is involved…. 😉

 

Of course that isn’t everything, the “critical” are included here….5 pages:

Two great scenes! Why? I love the dialogues about her fear to lose her secret identity, great stuff!

🙂

Masks off! #26 – Batgirl and her….. copycat!

So, christmas break is over….I have something for you. In this issue, Batgirl has a copycat, that wants to be THE Batgirl.

Both are very curious who’s under the others mask…. 😉

 

I have 9 pages for you…check out who will win the unmasking fight

Even I don’t like the new Batgirl design, this issue was good, great “mask talk” and more….

🙂

Here is the issue with the whole story:
