Don't any of these women own any clothes?  And is it possible to look sexy without wearing a costume that makes it look like you should be dancing around a pole?

Sheesh.

Aparently not (I'm being sarcastic just in case there was any doubt) & get ready for the sophmoric folk to chime in.  Sex sells though & given the target demographic of who comic companies are going for what do you expect?

Missing Dark Phoenix, Black Cat & Hela, for starters. A lot of Indies & B-listers on te list, too (yeah, I know that Hela rates B-list, herself). How about the White Queen? Sure beats Selene.

Also, the artwork that was chosen really doesn't represent. There is much better, sexier-looking Enchantress, Poison Ivy & Elektra stuff out there, for sure.

Black Cat and White Queen were left off as they are not really villains anymore...Ya i know there is some ambiguity when it comes to Elektra and Gamora as well.  but I also wanted to avoid duplication as much as possiblewith one of my earlier articles on sexiest costumes where both those characters made the list. 

Hela?  Hela?  I could come up with about fifty names before I'd reach Hela...

Can't really argue except to repeat what TJ mentioned, some of these are on the side of good or at least straddling the line. Straddling? the images I'm getting

Much as I hate to admit it, and I'll probably have my Guy Card revoked for saying this, but I agree with Kara.  As much as I can admire the artwork, I think costumes like the Bomb Queen's (really?... "Bomb Queen"??!?) and Purgatori (??) are a bit absurd.  Skimpy is fine to a degree, and I understand that the demographics of the artists and the audience tend to dictate the styles, but I think they get carried away.  Ah well...

Nah man, there's a tactical advantage to wearing almost nothing and/or skin tight suits. You don't want to get hung up on something while making your getaway or give your enemies something to grab (I mean clothing by that) when fighting. See, it makes perfect sense, nothing absurd about it, "tactical advantage".

Let me add distraction to male enemies as part of the tactical adavantage

Cue feminist ....3...2...1....NOW

 

Time to rail against skimpy outfits and huge tits (yeah I said it)

It's fantasy, in a male dominated genre what do you expect. AND No feminist EVER, NEVER, EVER Rails against the completely unrealistic and rediculous bodies of men in comics, or thier revealing outfits...

 

Been hearing (some) women bitch about this in comics forEVER! It's a tired argument... and im sick of hearing it.

P.S. these drawings are hot...uh for drawings...

I'm not going to rail agains huge tits but do they all have to have DD breasts?  It's like comic book artists are all wannabe plastic surgeons.  I know it's a matter of preference but a woman doesn't need ginormous watermelon boobs to look sexy.  Not even one drawn on paper.  And if these women are so good at fighting and being super villains, wouldn't those things get in the way?  Could you imagine trying to fight with those puppies bouncing around all over the place.  Those costumes must have some really great hidden support systems.

The Black Cat was robbing Dexter Bennett's apartment in her last, most recent appearance, just a couple of months ago, so I'd say she's a baddie. Elaktra's always been an assassin. And Gamora's been on the side of the angels ever since she hooked up with Adam Warlock & crew, no?

Just for kicks, here are some images I googled of your choices:
