Episode 163 - "Don't faint with gratitude!"

PCX reviews Supergirl V1 #9
(part 1 of 4)

Whew, when I saw "Supergirl", "4 parter", I had flashbacks to Starhawk's Supergirl v4 # 23.

Long hair, gross? Only if you don't move it out of the way when you wipe. That happened in my elementary school, 3rd grade I think. Cute little blonde, hair that covered her perky little ass. She comes from the toilet and her best friend noticed the smell first, saw she had smeared some crap on her hair. She quietly got the teacher to let them both go back to clean her hair. I was probably the only other person to noticed cause I was sitting behind them. I know it was nasty but all I could picture is the blonde touching her own tight little buttcheeks.

Supergirl v1 #9 is available here.

People have noticed that Superman and Clark Kent look the same but Superman usually creates evidence that both have been at the same place at same time. Like using his Superman robots, Red K split, Batman in disguise, even a cardboard standee to stand in for Clark.

You should see the Syfy version of Princess of Mars, Dejah Thoris is Traci Lords. They didn't bother coloring her red either and the green men are 2 armed STOS looking.

But they carry this helplessness too far in the Barsoom books, Tara, John Carter's daughter is supposedly half human and should be nearly as powerful as her brother, Carthoris but they play her off as a weak victim to be saved.

What's with the barbed wired look on the bottom of Supergirl's shorts? I like the version better with the slit on the sides.

The Supers get free music all the time. All they have to do is tune their ears into what they like.

Why not just fly the plane back up into the sky? And why didn't Supergirl tune her ears into air traffic radio transmissions?

Writers before were just used to writing females as victims or submissive. Partly because females did play those roles in real life.

Ah, the infamous Supergirl #23 review...

After your story, we'll be lucky if Courtney doesn't shave her head altogether.

I just saw the All-Star Superman cartoon with Supes explaining all of those old gimmicks to Lois, i.e. how he'd always played her for a fool. Stupid Lois.

How hard would it be to make Dejah red anyway? They could just use CGI if the actress doesn't want to wear body make-up.

I always liked Supergirl's hot pants, either with slits or the "barbed wire" look.

Why not just fly the plane back up into the sky? And why didn't Supergirl tune her ears into air traffic radio transmissions?

Nobody ever said Supergirl had super-intelligence. Or even just plain common sense.

Oh man, have I been busy, I've been meaning to comment here for awhile.
Yeah that story is well gross, but I already shaved my head once.

I can't find any solid facts about why the red martians were not red, but I figure they didn't want the good aliens to look 'too alien'.
The leading lady can't look like one of those fake-tan Jersey Shore girls!

So I've graduated from WAAPA today ,although I've still got assignments to hand in. Now I'll be working full time for a year or so and hopefully save up to move to London.
Don't know where I'll be working yet though, but the commissions are working out pretty well for me right now.
