Supergirl's short shorts XD (Kara's current look, good or bad?)

#1 Posted by Sinestro2828 (1529 posts) - - Show Bio

What do you guys think of the decision to have Supergirl wearing shorts under her skirt these days?  A good change or a bad fashion statement?  An unnecessary act of censorship and prudishness?  A welcome change?

I like them alot! They serve a purpose. I like that she is a superheroine who isn't flying around with everything out for everyone to see. Go Kara! I really hope they keep it.

Do you have scans?

I like it. Look at how some of the other artist drew her, she looks older.
 
The current SG looks so young, that the shorts (To me) serve as a sensor
 

 see? older


Younger

@Sinestro2828: Yes, let's the characters have some dignity. I means she's always flying around in skirts, after all....

I like the new look.

I don't get them if it bothered the writer then he could just say don't show up skirt shots I mean girls in real life just wear skirts and it's fine if the artist wanted he could stretch the skirt or not show her legs it's to much thought put in something not that big a deal.

i actully think they should drop the skirt and just have it a shorts :)

I dont mind them in these pics. I think they are a god idea. I also like when she looks older and it just shows the thong straps peekin out on her hips right above the skirt but as stated its not practical when she flies.

The skirt now looks kinda silly.

#16 Posted by Korg (11931 posts) - - Show Bio

Makes sense. It's more practical for the character, and it's probably less of a hassle for artists who have to draw her skirt line. I like it.

it's more realistic, cheerleaders wear the same thing, it's the sexiness of a skirt + the modesty of shorts

Well, I think it's more acceptable. I mean, she is intended to be a younge character,( according to what artist draws her, cause sometimes, she don't look so younge and innocent), so, pervo no show!

#19 Posted by DEGRAAF (7918 posts) - - Show Bio

she is supposed to be older then Conner Kent (Superboy) right? I thought she was supposed to be between 18-20.

I think it's fine, better than flying around letting all the world see her panties up her skirt.  What kind of self respecting girl who wore a skirt as part of her uniform would go flying around wearing a thong under it.

I know that's what I look for when I'm buying a skirt.

@Korg:  
They can draw some different poses or set up shots differently without censoring themselves in an obvious way. 
 
Shorts get a plus in my book.

see, i always kinda liked the liatard with the skirt. I like the mid drift version also but i think this one seems more hero like and keeps her from wearing a thong or shorts

That can't be a real argument I can argue that Supergirl is not real so we can exploit her all we want. Really it's the artist he can be told not to show upshots of her and the problem is solved.

Better because before people who saw under the skirt... yeah...

#29 Posted by budonkadonk (64 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey, it looks much better than when they were coloring them same blue as her skirt.  No real issues here.

#30 Posted by Eyz (3042 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey! I didn't know about that! XD
It actually looks better, more practical!

#31 Posted by JesseDemonic (22 posts) - - Show Bio

NO! Thats wrong! This is wrong! She should have cotton white panbties or just go flat out camando!
#32 Posted by Rowen545 (378 posts) - - Show Bio

This is good, maybe move to just shorts or pants in the future. Also, maybe some of the other female costumes will change in the future.

I'm glad they kept the skirt(something about it gives her this freeing/innocence thing) but I think the shorts are a smart and good addition.

#35 Posted by Aheld92 (100 posts) - - Show Bio

i think the shorts look silly, if they want to censor it, make her wear pants

before when they would show up the skirt it would just go in to black darkness i cant think of a time in comics when you could see up her skirt and actually see anything
