    Heck, I remember when it was blue and grey with a yellow target on his chest. :)

    Only in reprints in 100-page specials, honestly. And then, of course, there was a certain TV show I watched religiously as a kid.

    Same here. Usually in JLA where once year they'd do an oversized reprint issue.

    I always loved the back-up features in those big specials, since they were pretty much the only place where you could stumble onto some old DR. FATE story from the forties or obscure characters like "Merry, Girl of a Thousand Gimmicks."

    They were like grab bags of Golden Age goodness.

    I'm guessing she didn't make it to 1000 issues to reveal all the gimmicks? :D

    Most of the time I was actively buying comics was before the "bat-signal" version of the suit emblem. I remember picking up an issue after some years - I think Alfred died for ten minutes and they introduced Aunt Harriet in the last panel? - and wondering what was up with a bunch of stuff. A straight-shot Jagmobile? Cool.

    I love the stuff that you stumble across in old comics - there is an issue of the Shadow where he freaks out because the bad-guys are into astrology and thus are immune to all of his powers.

    Really not that old a comic, but I read an X-Men issue from the 90s where the X-Men suddenly found themselves on a planet with Skrull architecture. Professor X conclued that, since the Skrull Homeworld was destroyed earlier, they must have travelled through time! Or, y'know, the galaxy-spanning Skrull Empire has similar architectural styles on multiple planets....

    Alright, I don't know if the news were already published here but well.

    1) we can see first 5 photos of the premiere here :

    (We can say whatever on the new Supergirl's suit but we must admit that it makes good on Benoist. My only reservation would be her bangs... :p)

    2) Do you remember Lena's ex, Jack Spheer (performed by Rahul Kohli)? It seems that he he comes back. Alive, as particules or shadow or in a dream? That's the question.

    I'm excited and impatient to watch the premiere in the hope that this s5 will be less politcally and with dialogues/situations more complex.
    I really like Lena's character and her evolution from s2 to s4 : she is smart and endearing but hides a darker side which just waits to explode in broad daylight and Kara & Cie gave her an occasion to do it so now, it could be interesting to see this side from Lena through her behaviour/actions... even if at the end of S5,
    everything should be in order between her and Kara, well I hope because their relationship is nice.

    ^ I wouldn't want them to abandon political and social commentary. The producers, to their credit, are committed to making the character and the show have a relevant moral voice. It upsets the crap out of viewers who just want the empty calories of Kara punching comfortably apolitical baddies in a world of pure fantasy -- especially those who see themselves unfavorably reflected in the show's sociopolitical mirror. Personally, I take some pride in the fact that my favorite show has also been called the most progressive show on TV.

    The dress was so that she could poop while flying.

    Kara is going to be very frustrated always moving forward, now.

    I liked it at first but am starting to like it less and I know why. It sould be a lighter shade of blue like baby blue. Also it looks bulky like work coveralls a auto mechanic would wear. Jason

    It wasn't.

    Kryptonian poop impacting Earth from great height would cause an extinction event.

    This is why evertime they got to go they rush back to the Fortress of Solitude to use they one good toliet for their needs. The real poop question is how hard was it for the Kents and Danvers family to clean their life pods used to get them to earth. Trapped in a tube for years with no toliet or diaper changer aboard. Even in cryo sleep the body needs nutrients and those nutrients have to go somewhere. Jason

    That's a use of the Phantom Zone Projector they don't talk about and why the Kryptonian criminals hate Superman.

    Kryptonian crap jokes.

    Wow.

    Aside from that sticky subject, the "S" shield of the new costume still lacks enough yellow/gold trim as an outline--something to break up the muted colors bleeding from symbol to bodysuit. Or at least go the Cavill route of a stylized "S" shield so large it stands out no matter the color mix.

    I could see going a little lighter than this, but baby blue would be way to light IMO. The blue they use in comics would be pretty good.

    I don't think a lighter pastel type shade would register on film very well. Certainly not with that level of texture. Also keep in mind that's an indoor shot with warm, moderate light levels. Outside in broad daylight it'd look much lighter.
