When I was a little lad, I used to quite fancy
SUPERGIRL (drawn here by JIM MOONEY).
Now that I'm no longer a little lad, I still do.

You and me both. I always thought Supergirl was quite the honey.

As drawn by Jim Mooney, she is at once convincingly a teenager and a superhero. Now that I'm older that sounds totally creepy, but back when I was a young lad, not so much.

Bob Oksner was really good at drawing her too.

Many later artists have sexed her up too much, making her a caricature and less credible as a person and a heroine.

Last time I saw a picture of a Supergirl comic, her uniform was little more than a blue bra and a red thong! Dear, oh dear, what has the world come to?

I also liked Sue Storm and Saturn Girl, Rip. Do you think I may be attracted to women whose names begin with 'S'?


Last time I saw her, JP, she was supposed to be dead. That's why I no longer buy DC comics (except for back numbers or classic reprints) - I just never have a clue what's going on.
