@PowerGirlFan: did you even read what I said?
I never said she was responsible for men staring, I said she took responsability of having the boob window for what it was, not for some weird explanation, and she was okay and confident with it.
and the path for them to make a new costume can only go through the iconicism of the old one. that's how they did with Supes or Wondie or Bats or anyone else in N52, they changed, but they kept what made them that super hero/heroine's costume
I read it. The "explanation" in the panels I posted is basically that she doesn't need to explain it, it is what it is: a window which displays her boobs. That's why I like it. She's saying that it's nothing but a costume feature which represents part of who she is. Nothing weird about that. She's not trying to explain or justify it. She was merely denying Fox's accusation that it is undignified.
I like PG's original costume too. But PG is not a big icon like Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. Their costumes have always been the same. Even other, bigger icons like Green Lantern and Flash changed their costumes from what they were in the Golden Age (and were actually separate people). PG is not even as iconic as they are. PG has always been the alternative female Kryptonian. (Even Supergirl was just the female alternative to Superman.) For most of her history PG has been an Earth Two character or some type of alternative universe origin. They could afford to give her a new costume without confusing or upsetting very many people. They already have given her two new costumes before changing back to the original. If the new costume were a good one I'd be fine with it. I liked the yellow/white costume and the basic design of her blue/white costume. I think it is a good thing that PG's lower icon status allows her writers the freedom to change some things about her.
exactly, because Flash and Green Lantern have other characters under the alias, they can afford to change easily and even then they didnt change much
and i totally disagree. Not only there's lots of fans and people who know about PG and recognize her, I dont think writers being allowed the freedom to change her at will is a good thing at all. Writers can change things with all achracters once in a while when they pick up that character's story but they can't go against what is already built, and having too much of that freedom will eventually cause that to happen, which then creates canon holes and contradictions
also, the explanation given by her is not even what I was going for; I was talking about her attitude towards it, when, regardless of explanation, she knows she is the one who is responsible for having that feature there and that it's obviously gonna cause some type of reaction. that's one of the things great in Palmiotti and Gray's run

This is why I love Power Girl, her expression in the last panel..priceless.
true true. Amanda Conner should be PG's official artist forever
