Night Girl

Sometimes a good idea, a good costume design, and a good logo can all combine in an unexpected way to make something that is, if not exactly “bad”, at least worthy of junior high jokes about boobies. Case in point, DC Comics’ “Night Girl” from the “Legion of Super-Heroes”:

Night Girl

I like her costume, I like her look, I like those killer pumps. I even like the “owl” logo on her chest. But as a man, I am genetically incapable of avoiding the following off-color joke, fully aware of how juvenile, sexist, and silly it makes me, and despite years of counter-conditioning from my wife, sisters, mother, and female friends:

“Does that owl logo’s placement mean those are her ‘hooters’?”

I’ll be dragged off for flogging in the morning.

  1. Hahah well not exactly… I can definately see the relevance an owl on a womans chest would have in that case but I find the relevance to be pointing more in terms of owls being creatures of the night, hence her name “Night Girl”. Throughout history owls have been associated by the media to be animals of the midnight time, and naturally speaking they are nocturnal animals by part.

  2. Oh owls are supposed to represent night time? WOW.

  3. Well, that certainly shoots down the classic “my eyes are up here” line…

    Is it just me or do the eyes look either vaguely disturbed or pissed off?
