Comic book artist Erik Larsen hates Ms. Marvel’s costume. Evidently, he thinks it is ugly, bulky, and would get in her way. Not like the usual swimsuit that is what, 90 percent of superheroine costumes nowadays?
It looks practical and comfortable and Ms. Marvel looks happy. Maybe because her costume is not riding up her rear? Her power is being able to expand or contract her entire body, or any part of it. (I can hear Beavis and Butt-Head laughing. Stop it, she’s only fifteen!) It makes for punching and running art that is funhouse mirror fun. The costume expands and contracts with her (unstable molecules?), so the costume-getting-in-the-way excuse is no reason to stuff her into a swimsuit.
I have an eight year old girl character with cat superpowers: Kittygirl. I have not thought much about Kittygirl’s costume. She’s a little young to put on a uniform and go to superhero work. When it is time to do that, I will not hire Erik. Cats hate thongs.
P.S. Yeah, Holly does not wear pants. I will elaborate on that, having found a picture about the subject that I liked.
