So did John Romita Jr. choose to interpret "kevlar vest" as some sort of protective corset, or was that Rob Williams' idea? Because that's not what I'd call "undermining sexist expectations".

I think it's meant to be tongue in cheek and poking fun at that very concept, but... Kind-of falling short. Way short.

I think her doing a Superman impression (with Tm and all) saves it somewhat.

So the undermining itself is being undermined?

Never would have expected a Suicide Squad/Incredibles crossover with the Underminer.

That would make a good fanfic, actually. I can see Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl not being happy about their kids meeting some really bad role models, especially when Harley tries giving Violet some advice on how to come out of her shell.

While it's been long debunked that Wally Wood gradually drew Power Girl's chest bigger and bigger to see how long he could get away with it, I almost suspect that's currently going on with Harley.

You might be right, but Power Girl's chest tended to defy gravity. Harley's JR chest sags, which is, er, more realistic for such a breast size I guess? But not really a great look for a superhero comic either, just for some different reasons in addition to some of the same reasons?

So wait. Deadshot is a double agent for Waller, and Katana cuts his hand off why exactly?

Katana didn't know at that point. It's the price you pay for working with Waller.

So did they just... reattach his hand afterwards? Because ouch.
Then again, this is the Suicide Squad, where they torture and kill and bring you back on a regular basis.

How many severed hands is DC up to at this point, anyway?

I...hmm. Counting this, I remember just three, the others being Hal during the Larfleeze arc and Alfred during Endgame.

More than TWD but less than the MCU, is my guess.

Are we talking in total, all continuities? Throw Aquaman in there if so.

Oh, right, Brightest Day Aquaman it is. Maybe DCAU Aquaman too, I guess.

Everyone's (understandably) rolling their eyes at the fetish kevlar vest and accompanying boobs pose, and here am I irrationally annoyed at how a character named "Katana" has swords that are just all wrong (no handguard, no curvature, wielded mid-handle with one free hand wasted doing nothing, and of course in the traditional, mystical "gurl stick that ass out" fencing stance).

I'm no expert, but is a katana handle usually a third of the entire sword?

And did Soultaker trap the soul of Deadshot's arm?
