Emergency Update: Powergirl is no longer showing huge cleavage. It's about time.

Old Powergirl
New Powergirl
I ran across the cover for the upcoming cover for "World's Finest" and I saw that they finally updated Powergirl's costume. The former costume is dead and I am very happy about it. The old costume, with its large "cleavage window" as I call it, has bothered me for a long time. As someone who readily defends comics against most insults and accusations, having a ridiculously costumed heroine created and written by mostly men doesn't help. I hope the new costume sticks, and while comics are still dominated by guys, this costume change is a step in the right direction.
