Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II.

It’s funny that I just came to this realization now.

We’ve got people as ESM Icons that do not exist in real life, so why not have the same rule apply for our Dime Piece series of articles?

I like to live by the same slogan.

Our first non-reality feature is Silk Spectre II from the Watchmen movie and graphic novel.

Why does she qualify for ESM Dime Piece status?  Check out our reasoning below:

  1. Silk Spectre II is played by Malin Akerman
  2. Tight yellow and black latex
  3. She is a hot superhero

And last but not least is probably the most important reasoning of all: the sex scene in the movie.

I know, I know you can call me a dork, but for anyone who grew up reading comic books as a kid, their biggest fantasy was imagining their favorite female superhero hottie doing more than good.

Who knows what this might open up?  A reality based Archie comics?

We can only imagine.  Maybe we should call Digital Playground and pitch the storyline.

Would you let yourself get beat up by a chick that looked like this?
