As drawn by Francis Portela, this is how three of the female members of the Legion of Super-Heroes stand around talking to their teammates, all careful to cock their hips.
I’m especially put off by the “look at my crotch!” red panel in Lightning Lass’ costume, since that color appears nowhere else in her outfit. Along similar lines, I don’t really need to see in such detail how much higher Dream Girl’s costume is cut than the natural join of her hips to her legs. (What is her costume made of, anyway, since it seems to do an oddly specific job of lifting and separating, to quote the old bra commercials?) With Shadow Lass, it’s the odd position of her elbows. Instead of opening her arms to welcome back a team member, as the text suggests, she’s pinned her arms to her sides, the better to push forward her breasts.
There are a number of reasons why I’m not following the new Legion of Super-Heroes series. This style of art is one of them.
