Let’s talk about Power Girl’s boobs.
Yes, fine, that was a statement that was designed specifically for a search hit (from those who have yet to realize that in the same information superhighway they are using to search for comic breasts, there are far more pictures of actual breasts), but our topic today does regard Power Girl and her ample bosom.
Co-writer J.R. pointed out to me a short while ago that in his mysterious and confusing corner of comicdom known as the “DC Universe” Power Girl has recently gotten a wardrobe change and received the fanboy huff that goes with it.
Perhaps the casual comic fan might not know that much about Power Girl, like that she’s the Supergirl of an alternate Earth (it was Earth-2 before the relaunch, I don’t know what it is now) and sort of a cousin to Superman…I think. That may because Power Girl always sat in the middle of the sort-of famous DC heroes like Green Arrow, the Kyle Rayner GL, and Red Tornado. More than likely, the most people should know about her is that she was the heroine with the giant rack…even in the comic book world of gravity-defying breast enormities.
Seen here: breasts.
So what’s the big deal about a wardrobe change for Power Girl? It’s not that they’ve changed anything about her. It’s not really even that it seems to look strangely similar to best-left-forgotten Image hero Supreme. No, it’s that they’ve gone and taken away the questionable cleavage flap that was the signature feature of the character.
Now you can't tell if she even has breasts.
You might tell by this point that I’m not really minding the wardrobe change. It’s not like Power Girl was that big of a character. Sure, the costume has replaced cheesecake with generic, but it’s not even the worst thing she’s ever worn.
Head held in shame for good reason.
So what’s the hubub all about? Let’s talk about it.
