Chrissie Chau hands out money as superheroine

Put Chrissie Chau in tight leather pants, a satin top with a plunging neckline, boots and a cape and you will draw a crowd. Have her hand out money to poor people and you will have a photo-op that one might think exploits the poor people getting the New Year's envelopes.

She appears here as the Hong Kong Bauhinia Xia, who may become a lead in a movie although the movie exists only as a poster at this point. She is also the star of a comic; read about Bauhinia Xia at 21CB and, as usual, Dennis Lee.

Those familiar with Catholic hagiography might see Bauhinia Xia as a 21st century, Chinese, female version of, say, Martin De Porres or Francis of Assisi (but without the organization skills).

Here is Chrissie as Lady Bountiful:

Lots more leather and lace at Sina
