Evil old woman/witch/hag is the best and least covered archetype IMO. People have been saying it for a long time, but it's a great idea. Honestly, releasing a few modestly dressed female champions doesn't do much to combat the accusations of sexism when every female is young and physically attractive, while we have Zilean, Gragas, Urgot, and a bunch of monster champions for the males.
It probably won't happen due to "cultural" issues in China, but I feel like a full on skeleton warrior could be cool. Karthus, Sion, and Thresh are sort of along these lines but not quite.
I don't have the link, but a great article covered this a while ago. Just like you say, there are only ONE monster champion for females (Anivia). Not to mention, that even male champions that aren't ugly or old, are not sexualised in the same way. Think Gangplank. He's a regular pirate of about 50 years old. Miss Fortune, the pirate-ish equivalent among females, is 18 and has a d-cup. This is why the Pool Party Graves/Lee Sin skins made me happy.
Like, I have no problem with sexualising the female champs, as long as the male ones get the same treatment. Go equality! ;D
And on that note, how about a 20-or-so muscular, shirtless-for-no-particular-reason guy with good hair?
(this did so not belong in this thread btw, sorry about that. It's just really interesting. :))
I can't tell if this is satire or not.
It's like you've never seen Varus.
