Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

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

Okay, this is pretty neat. I like the thought of someone using Supergirl's symbol like that. It sounds really cute.

Though I kind of have to agree with the commenter that asks how it's different from the Superman symbol. Which is a good question. Still, I wouldn't be adverse to wearing clothes with the superman symbol either. :-)

I think I like it best though because it's an acknowledgement, indirectly, that yes, indeed, there are women who read comics and get something empowering out of them. The odds of a non-comic fan even noticing the Supergirl motif, or being particularly interested if they did, are pretty slim I'd guess. And it's been quite a few decades since that wretched Helen Slater movie.

Comic fans are the ones who'll be interested in buying it and who'll find it empowering.

Considering how often I've seen it claimed that female superhero fans don't exist (or ought to be reading manga instead because it's so much more empowering) it's really nice to be acknowledged as a marketable audience. :-)

I want a trenchcoat with the Supergirl symbol on it!

    . . . That is odd unto me because it's not really anything new.

    I have super-girl boyshorts in my closet.

    I'd have preferred some with the bat symbol but they didn't sell those, which is bizarre.

    Hopefully more are on the lower end of the price scale than the higher end. :D I love the S symbol tho, it's very empowering, and it is so recognizable and a part of our culture which is why I think having a girl represent it and having Supergirl is so important :D I def will be getting some of thse clothes if they look good :D I alrdy own so much Supergirl stuff xD

    I think the great thing about the symbol is that it can be a Superman symbol or a Supergirl symbol. We can wear a shirt with that symbol and it can be representing Supergirl, not necessarily Superman. :)

    I have a branded Supergirl air freshener in my car (although, at 2 years, it doesn't do much freshening).

    You can tell it's SuperGIRL because it's pink.

    One of the many reasons I dislike Pink.

    There are super girl products already but for the difference between superman and supergirl girld deserve to have an heroin of their own and not count on the protection of man it is really basic

    I think there are just a few things branded with supergirl. I don't know why but, I think is a few feminist.
