Nimbo

Nimbo

from Wilkipedia

Nimbo is also a portmanteau of ninja and bimbo, used to describe a class of over-endowed female characters primarily found in comic books.

Examples of nimbos include:

Elektra, created by Frank Miller
Psylocke, in the hands of Jim Lee
Zealot, from Jim Lee’s WildC.A.T.s series
Nimbos are distinguished by their shapely appearance, fondness for highly revealing outfits, and skill with varieties of Asian martial arts and weapons. In some cases, the fighting skills are more exotic, even extraterrestrial in origin.
