DC fans have had to put with A LOT this past year: The UNFORGIVABLE retcon of Oracle, a new universe full of frankly forgettable villains, and a bunch of really crappy new costume designs (I’m lookin’ at YOU Harley Quinn and Superman IN JEANS). But nothing could prepare us for the most unconscionable travesty of all: This week’s debut of an all-new look for Power Girl. And oh, it’s just HEARTBREAKING. That’s her in the lower left of the first pic. And that’s how she USED to look in the second picture. Can you really tell me that an improvement was made? Power Girl’s super-bosom has made her comic pinup for GENERATIONS. Why, she’s been fap-fodder for horny geeks since 1976. That cleavage peep-hole is an American ICON. You might as well piss on Uncle Sam or wear the American flag as an adult diaper if you take that away from the fan-boys. She’s still pretty booby, I suppose, and the writers and artists are trying to keep the integrity of her legendary sexuality (as evidenced here), but it’s just sort of sad. Like a giant step back in the sexual revolution. Blame the Republicans, I say, for this horrid miscarriage of justice. Somebody needs to start an online petition to have this new costume destroyed by Darkseid so she can go back to the superchick with the knockers we all remember.
