Let’s talk about the new Supergirl costume, shall we?

It does look nice, but is there REALLY a reason for her to fight crime in a short skirt?

It could be argued that the skirt is an homage to Supergirl’s traditional outfit, but then we have to point out how Superman’s costume in this universe does NOT honor the iconic briefs-over-tights look.

So, other than redundantly proving that Kara is, in fact a SuperGIRL, what’s the point of the skirt?


Interestingly, it appears that at around the same time DC has decided that once again – comic book Wonder Woman can have pants.
