    Isn't that similar to the Kirby esque (I don't know...it reminds me of the New Gods...it must be the circles) DCAU Justice League outfit.

    You know...I'm also surprised that Blakfu doesn't even have the status of Fantastic 4's Mole Man...

    Timm and co were Kirby fans, so yeah I always got Kirby Asgardian/Fourth World vibes off it.

    She's a good template.

    Meanwhile can you imagine being a trans stripper in 1960's Reno? And an actress and scholar?

    She's totally Fourth World which makes it confusing, but it's still a great design. Love how the gown repeats some of the same elements.

    What an accomplished woman! She made a great Giganta in the Legends of the Super Heroes roast special. I wish she had been included in part 1 as well.

    Decent origin but (at least back then) it makes Gigantia more of a Apache Chief villain then WW so would definitely need to be re-worked to involve her somehow.

    Yeah, wouldn't make a bad design for a movie version. Hopefully with the purple hair also.

    Giganta was pretty great in that. The only thing I dislike is the minimal interaction she got with Diana herself, and her origin was tied to Grodd, but that'd be an easy fix by just using her more in WW's book and basing it off this.

    if I could change anything about Rucka's second run I'd swap out the Poison he did for a Giganta revamp based off this.
    I'm about due for a re-read of Justice myself soon. I understand why we absolutely can't hit the nostalgia button too much, particularly for that era that is way less diverse, but I do a wistful sigh every time I read it: all the characters (on both sides) look great, and none have the accumulated baggage they have currently.

    Col. Poison in Godwatch seemed like a role better filled by Giganta (bodyguard and muscle for Veronica), a revamped Paula von Gunther or Eviless leading the Crimson Men under Veronica's payroll. Basically anybody but Maru.

    Yeah, Ideally I'd split the role and have Giganta be the merc-muscle for the modern day Godwatch portions but have a more traditional Poison be present in the Year One portions since the virus they were trying to stop was called the Maru Virus but Maru herself never appeared there.

    Yeah, that's a nice look for her. (Maybe have her put on a shirt though, lol)

    I liked Vanessa's design for the Silver Swan even if bringing her and Julia back the way they did was done so poorly.

    I liked the '77 disco band version of Silver Swan. Feels like something the show would have done if they actually adapted the costumed villains.
