EARTH 2 Supergirl Costume Design Revealed

We've been seeing a lot of changes planned for the EARTH 2 world.

This week we've been seeing a lot of character designs for the upcoming EARTH 2 and WORLD'S FINEST series. So far we've seen designs for Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman. Today, DC revealed the costume design for Supergirl by Kevin Maguire.

Here's what EARTH 2 writer James Robinson had to say:

Superman’s cousin loves her adopted world with a passion, seeing how the people of Earth have adopted her and taken her to their hearts. She is the definitely brightest light among this first group of Earth 2 heroes.

But who is this Supergirl? How does she relate to Power Girl? Here's what WORLD'S FINEST editor Wil Moss had to say:

Meet the Earth 2 Supergirl, aka Karen Starr. As readers of MISTER TERRIFIC already know, Karen has been busy since she arrived on the main DCU Earth, creating a successful company and dating the brilliant Michael Holt. But what are her true motives behind those actions? How did she get here? And what incident prompts her to take up her new identity of Power Girl? Find out in WORLDS’ FINEST #1!

Why'd they draw her with camel toe?

Where the frick are the big three?! James Robinson promised us Wildcat, Flash and Green Lantern. (I don't call them by their "real" names because these are the originals to me)

Still not really sure about his one, i hope they will keep the funny part in the character.

So we will have superman, superboy, supergirl, powergirl, apollo, martian manhunter, shazam, jenny quantum ( and maybe the doctor from the authority), captain atom, firestorm and the flash on earth...good luck finding someone to beat that, DC really like godly characters...

Now that I look at it again, that camel toe comment is hilarious.

What makes this any different from normal Supergirl? GOD DAMN YOU DC!! Would you stop ramming The big three and their spin-offs/side-kicks down our throats, and show us the characters that would make the Earth-2 books interesting.

I've gone from really wanting to read Earth-2 stories to just not caring, fast.

Posted by Sakurafire

And here I though the point of Earth-2 was to read about different versions of the main Earth characters? Supergirl-2/Power Girl sounds like the normal Supergirl we've been reading about.

DC, mix it up a bit, why'don'cha?

Edited by snowtires

ahahahahahhahaha did someone's kid draw this? it looks like this is the version of supergirl that would guest star in a straight-to-dvd video called something like 'supergirl's bible adventures!'

Posted by LordRequiem

It's apparent that the aforementioned wardrobe malfunction is the catalyst for her transition to Power Girl. Lol.

Posted by Adnan

@Sakurafire: I imagine you won't have to read about this Supergirl too much though, 'cos we know she ends up in the main reality as Powergirl. Same with Helena Wayne/Robin.

Makes me wonder if they're gonna do a '5 years ago' style thing like with JL.

Posted by Baddamdog

Looks like it was drawn on paint

Edited by FoxxFireArt

Not a great first impression, but that's probably due to the fact this looks as if it was colored using MS Paint. The others looked really cool as the sketch work.

Posted by KnightRise

Man i was really hoping that earth 2's main heros would be jay garrick and allan scott, all badass and experienced but still happy to do their jobs, and the new genration would be dick grayson as kind of a robin-batman hybrid (read: nightwing), power girl with boob window in abundance, and huntress. Dont get me wrong i absolutely love the darker, broody new 52 but i really wanted some whimsy and adventure out of earth 2...or at least get power girl half naked agian :(

:( where are my Earth-2 Jay Garrick and Allen Scott designs?

YES!

Posted by mr_frosty

Wow... people still use MacPaint?

Posted by Arevish

What's wrong with the color? This looks so fake

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Well this is just effin' confusing me now. Are this Earth-2 Supergirl and Power Girl one and the same or not? Its cryptic what's being said by Moss. Saw this this morning and its just making my head spin now. What started as simple for the Earth-2 reality is now becoming complicated. And yes, where in the bleepin' bleepity bleep bleep are the big three? Where are Garrick, Grant and Scott? Seriously...this is just getting to be weird now.

THIS HAS TO BE A MISTAKE!

The costume design itself is okay enough (sans the plastic man belt) but the quality of the colors, inks, and even the lines is atrocious.

What could have went wrong? DC uploaded the wrong image and now can't take it down? There has to be some explanation for this.

Posted by Afro_Warrior

@RedheadedAtrocitus:

Yes they are one in the same. On Earth-2 she went by the name Supergirl, but when she came to Earth-0 (Main DCU) she changed her superhero name to Powergirl(I'm assuming because she realised having, two supergirls flying around would raise suspicion).

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Just watch, tomorrow they're going to release the Superman photo and that'll be it. We wont hear about the JSA artwork until late april. Massive uproar.

Posted by cagedleo730

@Sakurafire This Supergirl (Earth 2) sounds nothing like new52 Supergirl. Right now she can't speak English, doesn't fully trust Kal and barely knows her own powers. Karen Starr's Supergirl looks more cheerful and sounds more positive according to the blurb.

Posted by ComicMan24

Not so crazy about it but maybe it will look better when it is properly drawn.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Do people not realise that Supergirl and Powergirl have always been the same person?

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

OH MY OIHLUKSHUAK GOD THE FREAKING COLORS. MY EYES. TOO FRICKIN BRIGHT.

Was this drawn in MS Paint then colored with highlighters? God.

Design is kind of nice I guess.

ugh

Don't you think it's just likely a rough design and not actual artwork from the book?

Posted by Skywarpgold

The design's ok I guess, but it really looks like a crayon drawing or something.

Edited by pikahyper

wth is that !!! it looks like a reject from the original Super Friends cartoon >_<

That is in no way up to DC's or any large publishers standards no matter how rough it is, releasing something like that too the public (especially as promotional material) is just unprofessional and insulting.

/facepalm

To be honest, its terrible. Atleast the others were good...

Posted by Or35ti

So wait does this mean that the Earth 2 titles takes place before Supergirl and Robin (Power Girl and Huntress) make their way to the mainstream Earth in Worlds' Finest?

Posted by pspin

Good design, this seems like a sketch color wise, not a finished product. Either way Earth 2 and Worlds Finest look great!!!

Posted by pikahyper

Now I know what it reminds me of, those super cheap coloring books made in Mexico and sold in like $0.99 stores, Big Lots and the occasional super ghetto K-Mart.

I'm a huge Maguire fan and I've seen his sketches and mock-ups before and they have never been this bad, it makes no sense.

I was hoping she would have a skirt!

Posted by Kal'smahboi

Too many pentagons. Just because their symbol is in a pentagon doesn't mean they need to be covered in them.

Posted by azza04

That is just really bad... and I don't get it, are they saying this Supergirl here is the Karen Star who appeared in Mister Terrific?

Posted by Video_Martian

... I've already seen this before...

Well, yea! Didn't you know that?
Posted by BatWatch

The colors look awful, and the costume design itself is mediocre.

Seriously, what is up with the camel toe? Sometimes I'm embarrassed to like comics.

Posted by seshses

I love the chest emblem but i have a soft spot for Supergirl with the mini-skirt, see Micheal turner version

Posted by xkoenig

The art has a strong stylistic resemblance to Amanda Conner! I wonder if they deliberately chose Kevin Maguire for that reason?

Edited by WarmerDays

@pikahyper: A "Super Friends cartoon", I had the same exact thought when I first saw this drawing!

Posted by Bestostero

i hope Mr. Terrific will be in this too...? lol

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

@PsychoKnights: Not to mention the shadowing there makes it look like her crotch is a little damp...
