Point / Counterpoint: The DC Comics Reboot Circa 2011

For those who don’t know, DC Comics is rebooting their entire universe. Again.

Lots of characters are getting new costumes.

Point:

“I understand that there is an editorial edict for the DC Comics superlaunch that their female superheroes wear more… practical clothing. So Wonder Woman gets to keep her trousers. But the likes of Supergirl will be redesigned so they aren’t running around in a little skirt flashing their panties at every available opportunity either. Female superhero characters will have their legs covered.”Rich Johnston of Bleeding Edge News

Counterpoint:

Harley Quinn's new costume, out front of the Suicide Squad

Thigh-high boots count as pants, right?

Harley Quinn’s new costume is as stripperiffic as anything pre-reboot and I argue the practicality of effectively using a sledgehammer in a corset that is obviously loosely tied.
