    Oh, I know PG is all natural. But lacking context, I thought it could be a case of Supergirl just being catty. "So THAT'S why they're so much bigger than mine!" Besides, it looks like PG's bob haircut.

    Does X-ray vision even work on someone who's invulnerable?

    Also, I think Power Girl is often presented as being taller than Supergirl (could be wrong on that one), and that supports the late growth spurt idea. Of course, we don't know what is "late" for Kryptonians. For all we know, female breasts will continue growing indefinitely under a yellow sun.

    The physiology of "Krypton-2" Kryptonians differ from their "Krypton-1" counterparts. Maybe thats why.

    That and you'd need a kryptonite scalpel (magic sword?) or a red sun spotlight for the surgery to taken place and then after the fact when her powers return, they salen implant will be viced to gether agsint the pressure equal to continental landmasses turning the saline ine iol, then coal then diamond which will kill her the next time she loses her powers, and if not diamonds which is reaching, then certain;y the saline could work itself into pearls.without the application of too much pseidoscience with every bounce and jiggle.

    Yeah, but Kandor has yet to be established in the movie-universe, so...

    ... a new Superman movie should happen before a Supergirl movie to at least set up whichever preposterous Supergirl origin they choose to go with.

    Then Superman could cameo in the Supergirl movie. It would be absurd if that didn't happen (it was a shame the planned cameo never happened in Helen Slater's Supergirl movie).

    Plan 9's remarks were ignorant, brutish, groundless and absurd:

    - Ignorant, because s/he knows nothing about my artistic tastes or intellect
    - Brutish, in their childish mean-spiritedness,
    - Groundless, in that I never said that a movie Supergirl should have enormous breasts, and
    - Absurd, in that s/he asserted that humans and aliens should realistically share the same proportions.

    You do yourself a disservice, Dusty Ayres, by parroting such immature bluster.

    ^"Bodacious" doesn't mean large-breasted. Originally it was most likely a blend of bold and audacious (popularized in the Snuffy Smith comic strip) and means blatant, thorough, extreme, remarkable, outstanding. In '80s slang it means excellent, awesome. A "bodacious babe" is a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman by whatever standards the speaker employs.

    Now, if one referred to "bodacious breasts," that would imply breasts with an extreme quality, at least in the original or dictionary-standard usage of the term, but that quality wouldn't necessarily have to be size. But there's nothing in the phrase "bodacious babe" that specifically calls attention to the bosom, aside from alliterative implications which could well be unintentional.

    If they're going to cast by body type, I reckon we should make it a proper challenge and base the character on Michael Turner's art. Cast a young, athletic, blonde woman with no internal organs whatsoever. ;)

    It's like waiting for toast to pop up. If you pay attention it'll never happen.

    ^Why are you getting so angry about a character called Supergirl being played by a younger actress ?

    She's supposed to be what ? 16 ?

    Christopher is correct. I did indeed suggest that the actress should have a nice body, but you twisted that into saying that I was advocating one that wasn't "realistic [or] believable". Well, some completely realistic and believable human females have great and "bodacious" (in the 80s sense of "awesome" and "excellent") figures. To imply otherwise is frankly insulting to statuesque women.

    Besides, this is an alien we're talking about; it's not as though I'm demanding that a future Buffy actress be "super"-shapely. Hell, I know an English gal who doesn't have model looks or a large chest, but whom I'd cast as Lara Croft in a heartbeat, because of her personality and dry wit.

    However, I still don't understand Gaith's premise that casting a 16-to-18-year-old actress is in any way incompatible with casting a sexy or well-developed actress. Plenty of women are just as statuesque or voluptuous at 16 or 17 as they are at 22 or 26. As I recall, when Venus and Serena Williams began showing up at major tennis tournaments around that age, they had just about the same physiques they've had ever since, and nobody would call either of them waiflike. I also recall a number of my female high-school classmates having quite well-developed figures at 16 or 17.

    Are you talking about Rhona Mitra?

    Too late.

    She was the original model for the first designs which were made for the first game. The Boobs were an accident/joke that got out of hand and were supposed to be reduced to a realistic size before it was time to show the final product to the customer.

    Supergirl shouldn't have boobs YET. What part of "girl" escapes the collective "yous" vision on this subject? Think to catch a predator. Hells bells, could you imagine how pointless hitgirl in Kick ass would have been if she was 18 with boobs the size of breadboxes? It'd've been a lionshate less amazing that she beat the shit out of all those guidos if she wasn't an 1/8th the mass of any one of them when she executed near 50 of the mobster buggers simulataneously. On in the last episode of Buffy seaon 5 when some one says "How did you do that, you're just a girl." That sort of thing.

    Supergirl should not have a great body (Jeph Loeb sold out designing the new supergirl inventing a booby nymph for cleavage covers of his comics.), and if you think she has a great body for an 11 year old, then your are either 12 or hinting that you want a jail cell in the near future.

    Supergirl with boobs, a driver license and a love interest is the third movie.

    Oh.
