Malin Akerman at Her Sexiest in "Watchmen"
"Watchmen" is excellent, but carelessly thrown in the back of the closet of superhero adaptations behind the mounting number of "Avengers" and "X-Men" and "Batman" blockbusters. There simply aren't that many examples of a big, bawdy, deep superhero film that hits its marks - and leaves some as well - but just isn't noticed very much. "Watchmen" is practically sui generis.

Her first major role was in the 1997 Canadian series "Earth: Final Conflict." She has appeared in a number of Hollywood comedies since, such as "Couples Retreat."
Unafraid to take on controversial roles, since "Watchmen" Malin has played the role of Linda Boreman, a thinly veiled portrayal of Linda Lovelace. Boreman is an adult film actress and heroine of "Deep Throat," a film-within-the-film in the biopic "Inferno."
Malin In Real Life and Modelling ShotsAs noted above, Malin made her mark as a model. These days, she gets to walk the red carpet more than she gets to model, but she remains in the public eye. Malin shows a decided preference for leather fashions. Below are various shots of Malin wearing her fabric of choice.
Malin as Silk Spectre in "Watchmen""Watchmen" is a graphic novel by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins. It was serialized as a limited series by DC Comics in 1986 and 1987 and collected in book form in 1987. "Watchmen" originated from a story proposal Moore submitted to DC featuring superhero characters that the company had acquired from Charlton Comics.
As Moore's proposed story would have left many of the characters unusable for future stories, managing editor Dick Giordano told Moore to create original characters instead. The 2009 film is based on the graphic novel.
One might say, "That's not leather that Malin's wearing!" Well, maybe not. It looks more like latex. But this is her most famous role, and whatever she is wearing looks good anyway! The pictures of Malin wearing leather in real life are above.
"Watchmen" was not the most successful superhero film. However, nobody who has seen it will ever forget Malin in her outfit, striding into the prison and taking care of the bad guys.
