DC Comics’ Supergirl Gets A Costume Redesign…With Pants

Faster than a speeding bullet!

Even if you weren’t a dedicated viewer of The CW’s Smallville series, I think you’d enjoy Bryan Q. Miller’s Smallville Season 11 comic. It’s available first digitally, then in hardcopy at comic shops, but it represents a nice look at Superman and friends outside the New 52. But what brings it to our attention today is the addition of Supergirl and her brand new costume. While the artist on issue #14 is Daniel HDR and this cover is by Pete Woods, it seems frequent cover artist on the season, Cat Staggs, was the one who created the look. She tweeted, “Dear 7 year old Cat, one day you will get to design Supergirl’s costume. #shutthefrontdoor #pinchme #SmallvilleSeason11” While the boots from Supergirl’s New 52 design remain, lost is her cape and that awkward crotch patch (thank god). And yes, there are pants. What do you think of the new look? Would you like to see it transfer over to her own series?
