I think it would be helpful. Like Superman, her powers stem from her absorbing sunlight.
More bare skin, more sunlight recieved.
Thus, it´s really helpful!

but why then do only women show their skin?

what i mean to say is... same right for everyone...men should also be aloud to wear skimpy outfits and women should be aloud to wear overall-body condom like the men in the comics :p

seriously i would by a comic with men in skimpy outfits :D

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.

First off, I completely agree that "fan service" is no excuse for poor writing and that your last sentence is dead on. That said, if you think that sex doesn't sell or that this only happens to female characters then you aren't looking; how impractical would it be for a superhero who regularly gets shot at, flies at speeds capable of exit velocity, re-enters the atmosphere and much more, to wear nothing but jeans and a t-shirt? Well guess what! DC has just that and he is even related to our heroine, his name is Superboy and he seems to get his shirt ripped apart quite often, exposing his perfectly chiseled abs, chest and arms (ain't that a coincidence). Another perfect example is Nightwing, if you want a drinking game that might kill you (assuming you are 21) then pick a volume and for every gratuitous butt shot take a drink, pretty soon you wont be able to read for the night, or stand up straight for that matter.

While we're at it, remember when DC gave Wonder Woman pants and a Jacket or how Power Girl got a full coverage suit? Didn't last long did it? and male fans weren’t the only ones who complained. Also, if you want a lol then I recommend reading some of the hate mail girls sent to DC when Dick Grayson became Batman and butt shots stopped for a while.


The main difference is that when female characters are over sexualized people throw a tantrum but when the same thing happens to male characters no-one notices and no-one cares. But before you think I am ripping on you please remember the very first sentence I wrote. Also, I agree with you on Starfire's outfit, but lets be honest, she has never had a modest sense of dress throughout her entire comic book history... personally I don't understand why they didn't use her teen titans cartoon iteration, it was the most fan and critic loved version... not "edgy" enough I guess.

Tell me about it! I read comics all the time and its all big busts and big asses with lots of exposed skin, even with Lady Punisher and Elektra!!! The only thing that combats that is exciting storylines with lots of fighting... but thats just my take on it.

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.

Slut is a term people throw around because they're afraid to actually live. They like the idea of some little uneventful life and manage everyone else to make sure they each live little uneventful lives as well. It's being discovered that people's most frequent death-bed regrets aren't as often about things they did as things they didn't do. Let Kara wear that. She represents youth, beauty, fitness, goodness, and justice. This picture is funny though. It's as if to say the whole reason Kara wore the outfit is because the style center of her brain was turned off and suddenly one day it activates.  :D  I always thought her costume looks good, but I confess, I'm a guy. I also live in a hot region where less clothes make more sense.

I wouldn't call her outfit slutty - but it IS impractical. No woman would dress the way most superheroines do to go fight the badguys. It's excusable for invulnerability-and-weather-proof-powered ladies to not be concerned about protecting their bodies from scrapes, wounds, or the weather, but even they shouldn't want to risk a wardrobe malfunction in public (clothes get torn/shredded even if flesh does not). Lingerie isn't bullet proof. Even if it was, it covers too little to be effective.

Those who can be harmed by cuts, scrapes (sliding across concrete in a bikini would hurt like hell), bullets, heat, cold, and bad weather would, in real life, dress to protect themselves. Red Sonja's chain mail bikini is especially baffling, since not only does it not protect against any wounds, it would actually be terribly uncomfortable (I pray it is at least lined with cotton or something.).

(In case you think I'm a just a prude and I'm "afraid to actually live:" at this point, I feel like they may as well just have Starfire run around in the nude and claim Tameranians don't believe in clothes (they don't need it for physical protection). What she wears now shouldn't be able to stay on, it just manages to cling to her skin despite the laws of physics (gravity alone would pull off the top). Her superpowers should negate any need to wear clothes for protection, so either she wears clothes because she doesn't want to bear all (in which case she should wear something capable of staying in place without double sided tape) or they should just have her go all nude because bearing all isn't a concern to her. What she wears now is just offensive.)

sigh...you should hear the Croatian insults... ...we made insulting into an artform here.  you know that saying eskimos have 50 words for snow.

that is us with every single curseword.  in my country we hae so many gradations of that word, some pertaining to sexual promiscuity, some  to clothing style some  to personality, and only 1 word  to translate it to English...

seriously, for good fun juuuust google Croatian cursewords, i dont think there is anywhere a good extensive list but there are some decent ones.

trust me on this one, people liking the idea of uneventful lives in my country have a faaar more elaborate way of passing judgement.

only mentioning this cause in your last 2 messages you started off with the same premise XD so i thought you might enjoy some fun with languages XD
