When Heroes Turn Bad

Something I saw outside an Astroboy shop. Now I always thought that was a rather rude gesture, from Europe I think...kinda like an 'up yours' or 'F**k you' with elbow and raised fist...what do you think?

I don't know, if you are so inclined you might interpret it so, however, having grown up watching the original Ultraman series and later watching the Power Rangers, the hero is always doing all sorts of bizarre gestures.

From this angle, it looks a lot like he is in a defensive boxing position.

imp: wouldn’t it be cool if a whole bunch of little kids went around doing it too?

Richard: yah, I know it’s an action post. I seen enough ultra-man and anime (but NOT power rangers) to know that. Am just saying it kinda reminded me of the other ‘rude’ gesture.
