I really hope that the costume designers from the Supergirl show are tuning in here (yeah, fat chance)--because they have a lot to learn from what Kara wore in the 1970s!!
When Supergirl first got her own series, she wore the same costume she always had:
You see, Supergirl was roughed up by a magical adversary, and more than her pride was damaged:
The problem was, the colorists kept forgetting the gloves!
Next, they debuted the costume she would wear for most of the rest of the decade:
Of course, the insides of Supergirl comics featured even more wacky costumes, as reader submissions and insane artists ensured that Kara didn't stand still, fashion-wise.
But, man, they really let it all hang out on the covers!
So, Supergirl CBS, for season two you had best ramp up your costume game!!
