"a male hero would never be placed in the same physical condition"

Well, no shit? Men aren't "sexy" when in poses such as that. So far as I am aware, men are supposed to be very stoic/muscled/etc, not flexible and athletic.

If it were a male character in that position, everyone would be laughing their asses off and/or not consider it sexual at all.

Fact of the matter is, spiderman is an athletic and "flexible" superhero, he ends up in more "female suggestive" poses due to this.

Did you watch the video? There was pretty much the exact cover with the male Spider-Man ten years prior and nobody cared.
