Kara: No, actually that sounds even wor-
DC: TOO LATE!

Kryptonian school pride?

Hey, the execs could've made you wear Starfire's costume. Even her old costume was worse than that. Even Power-Girl would probably find this an improvement. I mean, it's sad that a cheerleading costume is not one of the worst costumes, but comic execs/artists seem to think women in comics don't care about scrapes, bullets, other injuries, weather, durability, or even ensuring their clothes aren't one rip or torn strap from falling off. Starfire's costume disobeys gravity itself!

I almost think Marvel and DC are purposely driving away female readers. Then they can justify dressing their women in clothes that we would never wear to go crime-fighting, because "only guys read comics" and... sex sells? To the extent that guys will turn down a well written, well illustrated, action-filled comic book for not having enough cleavage/midriffs/butts? (Yeeahh... I'm sure that's totally accurate... Cause, y'know, The Walking Dead has totally not reached a larger fanbase than most well known traditional titles (I'm talking about the comic book here too, not the TV series)).

If they have to rely on scantily clad women to attract readers, perhaps they should take another look at their marketing, writing, and story direction and see where they lost their fans. Cause no amount of sex appeal is going to stop a reviewer from bombing the series if they don't like the series itself. And just cause the sex object character is hot, doesn't mean the reviewer won't comment on the unbelievable attire if they didn't like the story.

Because the Kents have strange tastes... you think I'm joking, but the Martha Kent designed the costume, so that is the explanation in the comics

yeah i always had that problem with her costume

I have that if DC brings her int the universe, which wouldn't be on the first JL but the second, she is not wearing a skirt. I mean is hot, but for some one who is flying all the time its an unpractical choice.
