When we think of sexy illustrated characters the first names that usually come to mind are buff athletic types such as Superman or Batman and for good reason. Characters like the legendary Dark Knight and the hunky Man of Steel rightfully capture our attention, and our attraction, for very obvious reasons; they’re extremely good-looking, charming, and are iconic and extremely well known.
However, while men like Superman and Batman are undoubtedly handsome, there is a certain charm to those characters that you initially wouldn’t consider attractive. For characters that are a little more… eccentric or prickly, they don’t originally seem that appealing; however, once you follow their story or get to know them a little more closely, you can’t help but find them just a little sexier than you did before. Here’s the list for 10 surprisingly sexy illustrated characters:
A description of a slightly awkward gay Jewish fan-boy doesn’t necessarily strike desire into the hearts of women, but one look at this adorable hero just might make you reconsider.
Gambit, otherwise known as Remy Etienne LeBeau, is a complete and total Swamp Rat (at least according to Rogue, his on-again-off-again girlfriend), but once you get past the red eyes, the weird headgear, and the kleptomaniacal tendencies, he’s actually pretty hot.
Aqualad is the youthful mentee to AquaMan and, unfortunately, the name doesn’t inspire much hope as to the attractiveness of the character, but names can be deceiving. In the original depiction of this character, Aqualad had dark hair, light skin and a rather unfortunate-looking red and blue leotard ensemble; however, as the comics evolved, so did the character.
7 Marko (Saga)
Saga is a comic book series written by Brian K. Vaughn and illustrated by Fiona Staples, a very off-beat and highly interesting series that has the same romance as epic stories such as Romeo & Juliet, with the added bonus of the couple staying together throughout the course of the story.
6 Alana (Saga)
5 Atsushi Dojo (Library Wars: Love & War)
Atsushi Dojo (male protagonist in the Library Wars: Love & War manga series written by Kiiro Yumi and Hiro Arikawa and illustrated by Kiiro Yumi) is an extremely short, highly irritable solider, he doesn’t exactly sound like someone’s idea of a dreamboat, but get past his rough exterior and you’ll find a handsome (although somewhat short) prince with a heart of gold.
4 Jack Frost
Even though Jack Frost is an animated character in a children’s movie (Rise of the Guardians) that doesn’t stop him from being one of the sexiest illustrated characters fans have seen yet.
3 Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man)
Before he was bitten by that radioactive spider, Peter Parker was a complete and total nerd and didn’t break very many hearts, until he’d donned the famous red-and-blue costume we’ve all come to know and love.
2 John Blacksad
Casting the fact that he’s a cat aside (we are talking about illustrated characters here after all), John Blacksad is one of the sexiest characters anyone has ever seen drawn across a page.
1 Dick Grayson (Robin/Nightwing)
Who would have ever thought that the red-yellow-and-green clad Boy Wonder we saw fighting alongside the legendary Dark Knight would one day become an extremely hot Man Wonder?
Least to say, Nightwing is definitely one of the sexiest guys in the DC universe (let alone the entire comic book universe), but you would never have thought so watching him grow up. Attired in the red-yellow-and-green outfit based on the colors of a Robin (in reference to his mother affectionately calling him her robin), Dick Grayson was a completely adorable and entirely asexual character for the fans. As Robin, Dick Grayson’s role was to play Batman’s youthful, energetic sidekick, whose youthful appeal and humor often acted as a foil to Batman’s dark and serious nature. Robin was known for his brightly colored costume, as he was for his acrobatic skills and his witty sense of humor, it wasn’t until puberty hit that people (especially fan girls) started taking notice of his more…sensual side. With lean, but well-defined muscles and a smooth, but playful charm almost no woman can resist, it should come as a pleasant surprise what a sexy character Dick Grayson (whether as Nightwing or as a spy in the Grayson comic book series, written by Tim Seeley and Tom King and illustrated by Mikel Janín) has become.
