    It's not her best but it's a perfectly acceptable outfit for the run Rucka was writing and characterization he gave her. She's had some far more major swings and misses.

    For like a one issue appearance where she doesn't go all out and is more low-key, I understand, I didn't even hate it initially, but for a major WW villainess and one of the strongest magical beings in the DCU and who is known for her vibrancy and flamboyant nature...it feels way too normal. Like, I just don't think it makes any sense as her de-facto look and it just makes her look out of place and unimpressive the more they use it.

    How is the middle a miss? Aside from the episode not using her to her full potential.

    That I can agree with, in my ideal world she'd swap her looks between Perez, Dodson, and Rebirth but that's not really something you'd get in a corporate superhero comic that needs consistent looks for branding purposes.

    Too "Fourth World-y" for me when it comes to Circe.

    I'd be fine with that too, I just take issue with what they ended up with as Circe's de-fact look when there were better options.

    Well, "What if Jack Kirby designed Circe" doesn't sound like a bad thing...oh wait, he did design a Sersi for Marvel .

    Fair enough, I think we mostly have the same opinion. Her Rebirth outfit just doesn't bother me as much as it does others.

    Kirby's great obviously but didn't feel it fit a Greek sorceress imo. Or at least Timm and crew's version of Kirby.

    More like sci-fi Greek, but I think it fit her well .

    That look definitely felt at home in the DCAU. Sure, it's a bit different, but not in a bad way IMO.

    As for the DCUO Circe, at some point they tweaked her costume, but didn't retcon it. They just added a bodysuit, and any NEW appearances have that.

    Well, it's Circe and it was the turn of the millennium at the time. She was hip with modern culture so it made sense she updated her look too.

    You know which Circe design looked a cross between Kirby's Sersi and DCAU Circe? Justice League Action.
