My Milkshake Brings All the Villians to the Yard

So I'm a dude.  In MMORPGs, for the most part, I play dude characters.  As much as I'd rather be looking at the backside of a sleek, sexy femme fetale rather than a huge man-mountain like Hulk, I would just rather avoid situations like these (thanks for the laugh Jong and Syrana).

I decided to delve into the world of transgender heroism and make a female tanking character that ended up looking like Mila Jovavich from Resident evil (so much that I might have to take Two Gun Mojo).  In order to do that, I went to make a custom body, and WHAM, my jaw dropped to the floor.

The Breast slider was at full.  WTF?  I just made a custom character, and Cryptic decided female superheroes have huge jugs.  I like boobs as much as the next guy (apparently not).  I just want my ladies to look tasteful.

Checked some of the custom sliders and found out that 3 of the 8 typical builds (Vixen, Stretchy, and Slim) all fill out the breast slider completely.  In the rest of the builds, the slider doesn't go below half way.  Great for ladies' self image, eh.  Here's news for you Cryptic: your female audience, while not the majority, probably doesn't pack a tiny waist and triple D's.  Way to make them feel inadequate.

I understand the need to limit the size (which might be why it's maxed out), but at least make the template characters a little more well rounded.  If someone only used the template builds, they may end up thinking the goal of the game is to boob badguys to death.
