Kara, M’gann, and many of the other alien teens LOVE Cute High School Defense Club LOVE because it’s (to them) such a great intergalactic TV show (and where they learned a lot about Japanese Earth culture). However, after finding out that it’s ACTUALLY happening in Japan (and not alien actors dressed as humans) during the last episode, everyone geeks out and HAS to meet the boys (and invite them to join the League).
For the penultimate day of polls, we’re offering up a selection of some of the standout female superhero costumes from the past sixty years, designed by George Perez, Jim Lee, Al Plastino and more. From Rogue’s jacket to Supergirl’s mini skirt, these are some famous looks — but are they classics, or embarrassments?THE GREAT SUPER-COSTUME POLL: SUPERGALS
There are so many people upset with the new costume of Supergirl because she isn’t baring any skin at all. People say that her hands/midriffs/thighs should be bare, and the tights make her look like a grandma. Well, first of all, no. No. Stop sexualizing female superheroes. There are comments on IGN where men say that “supergirl is meant to be sexually attractive to men and now they won’t want to watch the show”. Don’t. Women do not exist to be sexually attractive to men. For the record, this costume looks pretty badass to me. In an age where everyone has a decent camera phone, Supergirl can hardly afford to be flying around in a miniskirt that literally makes it impossible to fight without flashing someone. The bare midriff? Not professional, or practical. That’s like expecting Superman to be shirtless, and wearing boxer shorts instead of tights. The costume is form-fitting and conservative, like they’re meant to be. It’s street smart, dark, and practical. And it completely complements Henry Cavill’s Superman costume. That one, if you remember, outlines all his muscles, but plays it conservative in the crotch area, unlike the comics where he literally wears red underwear outside his suit. I don’t see why Kara Danvers should be overly sexualized with boobs and bare skin when Clark Kent isn’t? Black Canary, The Huntress, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Gamora, Black Widow, Mockingbird, these are the female characters from the comics on TV right now, and they all have 21st century pragmatic outfits that help them. Hold the women in the same standard you hold men. That’s what equality is.
