    I remember when Jamal Igle showed her wearing visible shorts underneath her skirt. That's my preferred solution.

    That or have her wear shorts (which she briefly did in the 70's) or full on pants.

    Very few creators have shown the respect for the character that Gates & Igle did, that's for sure.

    Even though I said I don't like Kara with a skirt, I do like they Future State Superwoman look from the waist down, and I'd be totally fine with them making that the status quo suit.

    As far as costumes, I enjoy the one that Smallville comic gave her, which would be a good "Superwoman" costume.

    I don't get the obsession with Supergirl and pants to be honest.

    As long as that status quo is Future State .

    Superwoman #1 is out! This whole issue was about Bennett kind of walking the line between the Sterling Gates/Jamal Igle Kara, the one who is at peace with herself and is much more upbeat and happy, and the Kara iteration that I enjoyed during the New 52, the Kara with some deep anger issues. Itís about Kara attempting to mentor someone very much like herself and show her the way forward, while also wrestling with her deep seated resentment about being upstaged first by Kal and then by Jon. I loved it, I donít know how some of you will take that ending but I would definitely enjoy seeing Bennett do more Kara stories. Loved the art too, felt whimsical like an indie, but all the washed out tone gave it a very melancholy feel.

    Looking forward to part 2!

    I think it's been a pretty consistent trait of modern Supergirl for the past several years that there's a lot of feelings and insecurities she represses to some extent. Even the TV version.

    Not sure what's going on with Clark looking like the Eradicator though.

    I think the TV costume would have benefited greatly from looking more like this suit.

    Although just like with the TV costume it feels more "Superwoman" than "Supergirl."

    To be fair, TV Kara is 30 years old now, almost twice as old as comics Kara!
