    The thing with her rack is because she underwent puberty in 5000 times the earth's gravity.

    The apocrypha is that is was an in-joke between the artists to keep drawing her breasts bigger and bigger, and it eventually got out of hand. I don't know how true that is, but it certainly seems plausible.

    Wow...uh, that 5000x gravity thing...that should've made the rest of her bigger too. :roll:

    However, hooray for that in-joke. I'm far more interested in reading about Power Girl as a result. :winky:

    I dunno if you've noticed, but she's been getting drawn pretty jacked lately by artists.

    And who is the dude with Star-girl (or is she no longer star girl...did she lose the cosmic rod?)

    And yes, Damage's costume is dumb. He looks like Atom Smasher.

    "In her first appearance in ALL-STAR COMICS, inker Wally Wood told someone concerning Power Girl "I'm going to make her breasts larger each issue and see if anyone notices." When he finally left the book, PG had a serious rack on her (no offense meant to female readers). In her post-Crisis appearances, she seemed to have regained more normal comic book woman proportions for a while, but then again there seemed to be a progressive enlargement of her chest over the years. The first time I seriously noticed it myself was in Alex Ross's paintings in KINGDOM COME and in JSA they not only have continued drawing her this way but characters now mention it so it's basically an official part of her character that PG has large breasts, as some women do."

    Ah, cheesecake, how I love thee. Leotards are definitely the way to go for super-heroines (I'm looking at you, Ms. Marvel). :winky:

    Anyway, I've derailed this thread enough. I think I'll go see if I can find some JSA trades or something. I'll probably pick up this issue as well, since it's probably as good a place to jump on as any.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Well, from the context, Maxine can create and control cyclones, tornados..the whole bit.

    i didnt not like this book. i think this book was made by jeff jons and dale eagleman who is not an actual eagle man that is just his name. i think they made it by getting naked and rolling around in ink and colors and words and then wrestling on top of the pages while they peed in each others butts. i think this book would have been better if spawn or those guyes from yungblud would have been in it because they could have killed those guys with the powers. catman seems really mean and i dont think his son should smoke. i know someone whos dad died from cancer.

    I liked the first issue bunches. Maxine Hunkel's adorable, and I don't mind the similarities between Starman and Deadpool so much since they seem to be taking a look at the more realistic implications of a manic, humorous superhero rather than simply using the character for comic relief.

    Not a fan of Damage's costume or character, though.

    Maxine was a complete surprise for me, as I originally penned her as being the token slutty rebellious teen on the team. Starman was as well, but then I read the book again, and actually payed attention to his lines. There is a lot more to him, as Johns said, than people will originally think.

    Specualtion on Starman:

    [spoiler:d0c63c5d32] I think Starman is the same Starman from the series we all love, no Jack Knight but the one who comes from the future to be starman in our time. But with the whole , the time line is re-writing itself thing that booster discovered in the beginning of 52, I would say it affected him while he was in transit to the past. OR some thing along those lines.[/spoiler:d0c63c5d32]
