Oh yeah, number two is better. I think it even improves on the original in the belt.


I got around to catching up on Supergirl and BAM! It was really a Power Girl issue. :-D

It's a good variant of the classic. Add to that, it's indestructible.

It was asking her to dress up like Power Girl that did it. :lol:

POWER GIRL

No costume list is complete without a shout out to Power Girl. Some iterations have been very pretty (Amanda Conner’s pre-nu 52) and some have been very ugly (the first new 52 redesign – easily proving that more fabric does not necessarily make better design. I personally think the boob hole is ridiculous, especially as it gives artists too many opportunities to make it look absolutely absurd instead of reasonable. The new Mahmud Asrar version is actually quite good – as is his wonderful drawing of her (above) – but I doubt it has the impact to stick – i.e. while it’s nice, it’s too similar to the old version to feel different enough, and so I suspect artists will just default back to the old version. I wish we could think WAY outside the box on Power Girl. Not just tone her down or cover her up, or take her back to the original, but just a REAL redesign with HER in mind.

Meredith took a crack at the impossible Power Girl costume that has stumped designers everywhere for…just about ever. I love how she went more “sporty” with it, so functional and yet clean and crisp:

Meredith’s Power Girl notes: First, let’s just get it out of the way, yes, the boobs are significantly smaller. No, I don’t have a problem with big breasts. I have a problem with designing against body type and when ladies participate in the level of athleticism required by Power Girl it becomes real hard to keep a lot fat on your chest. Cup size is further diminished with the addition of a sports bra as well. Which ladies like to have when we’re being active because we don’t want to have to stop every five minutes to ‘tuck back in.’ Last time I redesigned Power Girl in the context of a wrestler/weightlifter. This time I thought of her as a boxer. And then I just had fun.

I still like the comment by the poster who said they don't want to read a Power Girl starring Ellen DeGeneres

besides the big boob thing, what else is she good for?


Potential porn-star with Superman powers. She'd make a killing in that industry.
