Comicbookresources has the whole 5 page preview up on the site. [personal profile] ogrebear just posted the cover so I was highly amused when I saw the contents of this issue which is the Academy's "School Dance"


 

I'm admittedly lost on the "Tigra" is the costume idea. I guess the writer wants to play up that she essentially abandoned her old life when she became Tigra?



God I laughed my ass off at this page. 

And yes, this issue looks like it's going to be a hilariously awesome one. With some of the other party goers including Arana and her Amazing friends and even Butterball!

I'm hoping Trauma will show up. He was my favorite part of The Initiative.

I'm not sure someone who's power involves manifesting other peoples nightmares and whose control has been slipping a bit is going to be a whole lot of fun at a prom.

She did, actually. He was even able to fight off his daddy (Nightmare) later. And she's the one who came up with the idea of using his powers for therapy.

Depends on your idea of fun, I suppose. I'd just like to see him not be stuck in limbo until someone needs some C-List cannon fodder to kill off.

No idea, I'm British, we never had such things in my day (Thank god).

I HAVE seen "Carrie" though, so using that as a benchmark...

Is Tigra no longer with whoever the father of her baby is?

Either she can't change to human any more, in which case she is Tigra, or her cat form simply is her choice.

People think Tigra, they think of the tiger-striped skin, but unlike most heroes that's not a costume, that's really her.

I think it might be a bit of creator thinking slipping into the text...like when Stan Lee said the Hulk's skin color is basically his costume. (Although, recently, it looks like the Hulk's costume is a tuxedo made of unstable molecules, but that's another story.)

Not sure I see it like that. Hank asks her why she's not wearing her costume, she points out the striped fur IS her costume, a lot more than any clothes ever are.

That's pretty spot-on, I think. A costume is what one recognises a superhero by. If someone goes out wearing Tigra's usual outfit, the raction is not 'Hey! It's Tigra!' it's 'Hey! It's someone wearing some sort of leather bikini!" On the other hand, if Tigra goes out wearing anything short of a Spidey style full body covering while in cat-person form, she's recognisable as Tigra.

I love Tigra's dress. Because it's Tigra, I kinda expected a little vag-high number in red. But this one panel seems to develop her character a bit, from over sexed kitten to...im not sure but something i like.

Tigra's always loved pastel-colored floor length gowns. She just only wears them on appropriate occassions.

She's a much more complex character than Bendis and his crew have ever let her be. You don't become an iconic member of the Avengers for around 40 years (I think) without having more to offer than sex appeal.

Thirty years, and not even that, she joined the team in 1981, left shortly thereafter joined the West Coast Avengers some time later when they formed, and then has sort of been an on again off again, but most commonly off again member, until

Yeah, someone should re-post some of the pages from Tony Isabella's initial run on the character, unless they're still up somewhere.

Originally Tigra went around in a Carmen Sandiego style coat and hat and I found that alot sexier then the bikini.

I thought that, too. In fact, that dress is really rather elegant. It's a good look for her.

Komodo has already met Reptil, and he was 16. She helped train him when he was with the Initiative for about a week.
I dunno I guess she might have forgotten, but really how many dinosaur shapeshifting teenagers did she meet and train in the Initiative?

Maybe she figured the age-up was some sort of timey wimey 'I spent a bunch of years elsewhere but came back here' thing, rather than a young mind stuck in and older body thing?

Reptil needs to form a support group with Billy Batson.
