Meanwhile, I keep pretending she's Peege in order to keep me sane until May. This can't be a good thing. XP

That is some lovely art, especially the last page, if only it weren't ruined by that costume... which I just CANNOT get to work at all (and I'm a guy who can justify the Disco!Wing costume)

Crotch-thing aside, I'd like it if not for the boots that protect every part of her lower leg EXCEPT FOR THE KNEES.

Bizarro World knee-pads!

Well, when your body is tougher than any personal armor this side of the Entropy Aegis then you probably don't pay too much care on how protective your clothing are. Not that I can think of any other reason except running out of fabric that would explain this fashion faux pas either.

By that logic, she might as well go The Full Dr. Montyhattan.

The crotchplate and the kneeholes are enough to do it for me.

I actually like the costume and I think it would work, except for the fact that she needs blue tights. Fill in the skin with blue and I'd love it.

Something like this?

(sorry for the rush job)

Still needs the crotchplate to be more integrated but a definite improvement!

Fifth? Worldkiller of kryptonian origin? Sounds like Doomsday.

Thats definatly what she's implying here, that Kara isn't a normal Kryptonian (hence her divergent powers).

...I would find it hilarious of Kara metamorphosized into Doomsday, 90's spikes and all.

From: [personal profile] darkknightjrk
That would seem odd because, from what we've seen, it looks like she has regular, Kryptonian memories. Of course, that could be imprinted...and that could be used to make sure that while Kara may be linked to Clark now, he's still the last "pure" Kryptonian.

But I'm also hoping that the divergent powers comes from the idea that the solar radiation affects Kryptonians in different ways. I think that's a really cool idea.

The fact that Reign is implying it so blatantly, in such an obvious attempt to get to Kara is the strongest bit of evidence that she's not.

Either would strike me as deeply cliché, so both are equally likely methinks.

So, that would mean Death and Return of Superman was no longer in? Because Steel has already appeared in Action Comics. But how would that affect Green Lantern, I wonder?

The Kryptonian people in the pre-52 universe covered the majority of their skin and frowned on casual skinship. The idea of blatantly displaying their inner thighs - not to mention *ugh* the crotchplate - would have repulsed them. Normally I don't condemn retcons, but here I'd like to see that particular piece of history preserved over this gauche abomination. I LIKE fanservice, I really do. Heck, I grew up ogling Wonder Woman. But this? This isn't even fanservice, her outfit is a huge turnOFF (maybe that's some sort of insane plan to de-sexualize her?)

You see double downward pointing triangles on her crotch is an attempt to de-sexualize her? (Assume that was said in a fairly mild, ironic tone; I'm not trying to start an argument.)

From: [personal profile] blue_bolt
The context of my statement is that her lower outfit is so incredibly TERRIBLE, that it fails to be even remotely sexy. It's almost like the Young Justice villain whose breasts where so large she kept falling over. Instead of being sexy its just plain gross.

I believe the term is "Fan Disservice."

I'm also glad we're not dealing with typical villains who kill their subordinates whenever they get defeated.

Well, there are only five of them. If Reign acted too much like a "You Have Failed Me" Bond villain, she'd be all alone by the end of the week.

....and I still don't see we needed to reboot to have Supergirl in adventures like the above (or this art). this could have been as easily a continuation of the previous and quite recent Supergirl title!

Honestly, I'm just glad they're covering up more of her than usual comic heroines get.

The top is pretty good, and I actually like the crotch plate, but everything goes downhill from there.

sailorlibra: (awkward)
From: [personal profile] sailorlibra
You know, it's kind of strange. There are so many costumes that bother the fuck out of me and that no one else seems to care that much about (Ice's costume, Dinah's eighties outfit, Wonder Woman's Odyssey outfit, etc.) and this costume bothers everyone but me.

I mean, don't me wrong, I don't think it's a good costume. But I don't think it's a bad one, either. It's definitely kind of awkward, but I spend exactly zero percent of my reading the issue thinking about it. Whereas everyone else seems to spend about ninety-five percent of their time. Which is a shame, really. It's definitely one of the better titles of the DCnU (the best in my opinion) and I wish more people would concentrate on its awesomeness and not on the costume fail.
