    Does this mean Sidekick Girl is a real sidekick now?

  2. P.D.H. says:

    I don’t think Illumina would steal the thunder. I really expect this to be a good tag team, beat up the bad guys kinda thing. I’m waiting for this arc with crossed fingers!

  3. Ragingagnostic says:

    She looks tough…except for that boob window.

  4. HakkyounoTenshi says:

    I like the new costume. It’s much more practical than her old one. I’m REALLY looking forward to the next comic. I want to see Mack in action.

  5. EvilKiru says:

    That’s a Cleavage Top, not a Boob Window (see Power Girl comics for an example of a Boob Window).

  6. Roguewing says:

    Definitely liking the new outfit there, Lumina.

    Very much looking forward to seeing her in action now

  7. Adama says:

    Much better outfit!

  8. alurker says:

    A hero who can provide her own dramatic backlighting. Now that’s class.

  9. Jordan says:

    In a way, the new costume is sexier than the old one (at least to me).

  10. The Aussie Bloke says:

    Levitate them and give them a lesson in “Shaken Baby Syndrome”

  11. T'Renn says:

    In addition to the backlighting, she can also now consciously direct her own “Dramatic Wind”. Even with her hair in a much more practical-looking ponytail, it’s more than long enough for proper drama.

    Also adding my vote for the new costume. For one thing, just because it covers more, doesn’t mean it CONCEALS more. This design just reduces the (perceived) chance of a wardrobe malfunction.

      So they still couldn’t give her four more inches of cloth over her cleavage? Would it be less Illumina if they showed less Illumina?

      • David Johnston says:

        Ain’t no they there. As a fully accredited superhero, Illumina gets to pick her own outfits within reason. She wants to show some cleavage while looking tougher than she used to. That her self-esteem isn’t entirely wrapped up in how decorative she is, now doesn’t change the fact that she’s backlighting herself and levitating her hair and boobs. She considers that part of “looking like a superhero”. And in her culture, she’s not wrong.

    Digging the new costume. Still Illumina but proclaims that she has Taken a Level in Badass.
    The line from the movie “They Live” (which I haven’t seen but know of) comes to mind: I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum.

  13. Zodo says:

    Illumina is looking FIERCE! So is Sidekick Girl waiting in the wings to step in?

  14. Kit says:

    Ponytail, full-leg and -arm coverage, actual mask instead of a domino…


  15. Sidekickgirl says:

    Just to be clear, the Agency does not choose Heroes’ costumes. They design their own, from such places as Measure of a Hero, which we saw in a previous arc.

  16. Mischa Avros says:

    Personally, I think the cleavage top is a nice demonstration of continuity of character. Just because she’s improved her powers and fighting skills doesn’t mean she doesn’t still enjoy showing some skin. As I recall, her favorite thing about the job in the old days was that she got to dress like that (since most of the rest of the job was over her head and she knew it). There’s no reason she shouldn’t have her cheesecake and eat it too…

  17. Twitch says:

    Now that’s an outfit for rooftop chases!

  18. MattoMatteo says:

    I approve the new costume… more professional. 😉

  19. Coriolis says:

    Very reminiscent of a past fanart contest winner! You’d have to be on the forum to see the original. Glad to see it (or a variant of it) is now canon.
