Ahhhhh Power Girl. She’s another relative of Superman’s-originally. She was a Kryptonian on Earth 2 before Crisis On Infinite Earths threw her origin into epileptic convulsions. And when she debuted, she wore this little number.
As you can see, it’s basically a one piece bathing suit and a cape. And compared to modern incarnations? It’s pretty modest. Over the years, the neckline creeped down and the bottom narrowed. And the breasts grew. Apparently she was not finished growing up when we first met her.
Note what people “affectionately: refer to as the boob window. We currently are told that the reason for that window is not to give the boys a nice look at Power Girl’s overwhelming chest(and seriously, who could avoid staring if they were standing in front of her?! Those breast are capable of blocking the sun dammit!). Nooooo. Seriously! The reason? She has not found her “logo” yet. That window is supposed to be where her “Superman” style shield goes. It’s a good try, but I am not buying it.
So I decided, like Supergirl, I would try and create my own idea of a costume for Power Girl to fight crime in.
Here it is. I am not fully satisfied. There are things I think could be better. But note, no Boob Window. No bare legs. Like Supergirl, I wanted an iconic look to the costume. I kept the color scheme and yeah, the big breasts, since they are pretty solidly within canon at this point. Yes, another idea that DC would never use. Which is why they will probably never hire me. 🙂
