Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

You know who's costume they actually couldn't successfully change?

Power Girl's.

He also missed the point of that comment which was to point out that to the people who had gotten into reading comics in the two decades between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Final Crisis Barry Allen is some stranger displacing their Flash.

So instead of restoring status quo they were in fact changing things.
Exactly. Go ahead, roll Supes back to when he couldn't fly.

The Speedo is dead history; live with it.

Yep. Superman looks ridiculous in red "underwear" so that goes forever. But I'll be dammed if my hot, blonde, buxom, super heroine isn't going to fly around in a teddy with a big bosom-revealing neck hole!

Did they introduce Powergirl in the nu52? What's her backstory now?

I thought her new 52 costume is a full body suit which no longer reveals her legs and doesn't have a hole.

Yes, in "Worlds' Finest" (introudced in the Second Wave.) Her and Huntress are from Earth 2 and got transported to the New 52 Earth during a battle between the E2Supers and (Apokalypse?), where they served as Supergirl and Robin (the daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.) On N52 Earth they're Huntress and Power Girl but have tried to keep out of the way of their counterparts and others in the super hero community, though they had a recent run-in with Damien Wayne. Huntress has used her knowledge of her "father" in order to get some funds/resources from Bruce Wayne, Power Girl has set her self up as a rich industrialist, funded between Huntress' funds and using her powers to raise funds.

Yes, Power Girl's suit started off as a full body suit but she's going to revert back to the Teddy w/Cape in an upcoming issue.

I see, I hadn't heard it was changing.

Karen Starr was also in the Mister Terrific series that got cancelled I believe as well, she wasn't Power Girl though.

A teddy? Do teddies come with long sleeves these days? Other than the Boob window, PG's costume wouldn't be out of place on a gymnast.

I dunno, I guess you're right, but I don't know what else to call it to describe how the crotch-area fits.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Since some fans seem so concerned with Superman's Speedo and Power Girl's old outfit with the boob window is so popular, the artists are going to give Clark a crotch window.

Eh. that doesn't convey the teddy/panty area of the outfit very well.

You may be the first comic book fan to notice that PG's costume has a "panty area".

It's a goddamned leotard, just like every other superhero wears.

I think in her case it's more of a God Blessed leotard.
