New Costume? (Edited x 2)
Don't know how legitimate this is, but over on the CBR Forums, they have posted this picture as the cover for Supergirl #1. There are also presumed covers for Superman #1 and Superboy#1. Here is the link:
Also, if that link won't work, it is up on Bleeding Cool.
I don't mind the 'swimsuit look' especially given the red shorts look. I would have much preferred the red skirt version. And I like the high collared cape as it gives Supergirl an air of royalty. And the new snazzy 'S' shield. I think I'll be okay with it.
But the kneeless boots look completely off, almost like something you would find on an amecomi statue rather than on a superhero. Maybe the stuff above the chevron line will disappear when the book is finally officially solicited.
That is Mahmud Asrar credited on the cover. I wonder if he is doing the interiors as well.
If they were normal boots, I would be pretty happy with this cover. Of all the revamped costumes, this one (again other than the boots) works very well. Those high boots simply have to go.
And she certainly doesn't look to de-aged, one of my concerns. This could totally be the Supergirl from the current book.
Can I also say that I hope the rumor that this is some merged amalgam of Supergirl and Power Girl is wrong. I will be more than angry if that happens. The two characters are so different in attitude and experience and life. There hasn't been a sighting of Power Girl in the DCU, this Supergirl looks older ... it could be a merging. And that would be a complete insult to fans of both characters.
What does everyone think?
