The next time you feel down, just remember that Bruce Banner tried to kill himself and Tony Stark has anxiety attacks, and they’ve both saved the world. You will be okay.

Ahhhhh my Power Girl boob post has gotten popular again.
Not gonna lie, I check on the post and go
IT’S OVER 50 NOTES I FEEL TUMBLR FAMOUS.
I love each and every reblog and like.
When an artist makes Power Girl’s boobs smaller or covers them up, they are saying that there is something wrong with Power Girl’s boobs. They’re too big, too on display, too present.
There is NOTHING wrong with Power Girl’s boobs.
They are NOT too big.
They are NOT displayed too much.
They are NOT present too much.
Her fictional boobs are FINE, NORMAL, and PERFECTLY OK.
Peej isn’t someone to hide her chest. Yeah she’s got a boob window, SO FUCKING WHAT. She isn’t ashamed of her body. Who gives a fuck if she has bountiful cleavage? Peej has cleavage because SHE LIKES IT.
I’m a busty gal. One of the reasons I love Peej is because she has my boobs. The big, not hide-able orbs of power. So yes, when people cover up Peej, it reminds me of all the times I’ve been told to cover up and ‘look decent.
Now unrealistic boobs that defy physics is a completely different matter.
Reblogging because, dammit, I agree so much with this and posted about it before.
There’s a difference between an in universe recognition that Power Girl has nothing to be ashamed of (and shouldn’t be ashamed) and that she has every right to show off her awesome breasts and a recognition that, out of universe, superhero costumes are designed mostly by men who want to use women’s uncovered bodies to sell comics to other men.
The best solution is for a woman to always have some degree of control of the PG art(preferably the penciller/inker). If that’s not possible, or even if it is, the key is really just making sure she’s depicted as powerful and owning her body, rather than displaying it for the viewer. I think it’s entirely possible for PG to be busty, clothed to show it, and still be far less borderline-porn than most of the Nu52. I recommend borrowing the Amanda Conner run for an example of doing it right.
OP here. When I originally posted this it was inspire by non-canon Power Girl redesigns, in particular this one http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2013/05/20/she-has-no-head-6-stupid-superheroine-designs-that-need-redesign-stat/
The Nu52 Peej costume really is a great example of how a more covering costume can still feature her being treated like nothing more than eye-candy. Yeah they took away the boob window, but I can’t think of a single issue of World’s Finest that didn’t have Peeg’s onesie being ripped to shreads. She’s not Starfire, who does have nudist beliefs, so it doesn’t make ANY sense that Peeg is naked so damn much.
The run that got me really into Peeg was Sami Basri’s. He’s totally got the Peeg’s classic costume and her body shape without just turning into softcore porn.
