Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Friday, January 26, 2007


Okay, so there's this image going around. Pretty neat looking honestly. I haven't been a comics fan long enough to be jaded by yet another crossover, I suppose.

Anyway, Ragnell's got the image here. (Well, pieces of the image at least. Caution for spoilers though). As well as her thoughts.

I have to say, my own reaction is stuck somewhere around: "Egads. Must Donna Troy wear that??"

I know it's a classic. But honestly, that jumpsuit is pretty much indicative of everything wrong with seventies/eighties fashion.

It's positively hideous!

That said. Kyle's costume...really growing on me...but it might just be the comparison.

    As much as I dislike Donna, I really do like her uniforms.

    I think I got brain-washed by Young Justice on this, thanks to Cassie giving a pretty awesome explaination on why she never wore the Donna's old red uniform even though Diana gave it to her.

    I am still trying to figure out why it's a mash of elseworlds and standard DCU characters. And why they must continually insist on killing Ted Kord.

    which girlfriend is it that kyle isn't looking at Alex or Jade?

    Donna will forever have no fashion sense and "blink" Kyles will change once the next Paris fashion show:) Thats a better rendering of Donna than most I've seen though.

    Thorn: It was actually in one of Dan D.'s end of issue essays "Every Crisis must have...A dead Blue Bettle" . It sucks I know, sorry.

    Although I find Donna completely and totally uninteresting, I must admit that I rather liked the black outfit with the starfield. The red one is kind

    Mary Marvel has a much better costume.

    I'll be the dissenter here; I like Donna's costume (though it could do with some sleeves) and dislike the Ion costume, mainly because it looks too much like the Jim Lee costume redesign from the first time he became Ion. And there's a lot of things I hate in this world, Jim Lee's design sense being one of them.

    I'm not adverse to them getting back together, either. I think it would be nice for those two to have some happiness for a while, considering how the past few years have smacked them around.

    I like the two costumes myself, I'm still just getting a kick out of Holy Crusade Batman

    Personally, I think Donna's Wonder Girl costume doesn't date itself that badly, because of it's simplicity. The only alteration I would make would be to change the the straps to a high choker-style collar.

    Either that, or give her a red version of Star Saphire's new outfit :)

    As Ragnell pointed out, Donna may be the only character capable of surviving Kyle's death field.

    Well, she doesn't actually -survive- his death field, but whatever.

    My protest is that this is too weird to be the 'main' line and not weird enough for an alternate line. IN THIS ALTERNATE WORLD, ROBIN WEARS A DUMBER COSTUME AND DONNA TROY IS STILL IN THE 80S, TRUE BELIEVERS! Next we'll see Earth-Everyone-Wears-Cowboy-Hats. (In which Jonah Hex is god-emperor.)

    oh and Bedouin Batman.

    Of all the possibilities, why Red Robin? There were so many better looking designs from KC...I mean, Tokyo Rose? (At least I liked that design better than Red Robin, even if it was blatently Chun Li and she only appeared on a single panel) Blah...give me RoboBats!

    ...or even Red Son's Bizarro?

    Upon looking at the image again, the fact that Kyle is apparently wearing a yellow ring is forboding. The big Sinestro Corps GL event is coming up, and it would be just DC's speed to turn him evil and kill him off in that.

    I...I...I REALLY LIKE that outfit on Donna!

    Its showing her arms, not her stomach. It is PANTS. And its not that stupid field-of-stars inverse Dalmation outfit.

    I like it.

    The Earth-where-everyone-wears-cowboy-hats sounds wonderful!

    Here's what I thought of it.
