I had a really busy Wednesday and Thursday, so I was late reading my comics this week. But I did want to mention this:
From left to right: Hero! Hero! Hero! Hero! Boobs!
Aw man! Surely DC is not doing this. Not after they have worked so hard and earned my praise for the last year or two for their complete turn-around of the Supergirl charcacter. She is no longer DC’s teenage blow-up doll, but instead a complex, strong hero who is far more than a pair of boobs in a halter top.
So any excitement that I had that this promo image implies that Supergirl is going to be a member of the Justice League is overshadowed by the fact that the only women on the page is an isolated pair of boobs. I hate when a woman’s head is cut off in an ad or promo image, and it happens all the time. Nevermind the fact that it looks like the four male heroes in the picture are just staring at Supergirl’s rack.
Boooooo, DC. Boooooooo.
