In writing this review, I realised that this figure is the only version of the midriff-bared blue-suited Supergirl that I actually like. I've always liked Supergirl, but of all female characters in the DC Universe, I always felt that her oversexualization was the most misplaced. I can handle Catwoman or Diana looking sexed up and provocative, but something about Supergirl in the same context seems forced (that's why I've been loving the New 52 Supergirl.. She's amazing.. and not in a pinup girl kind of way). I think my acceptance of this particular figure is based on the fact that the style of the sculpt looks strong. It's hard to objectify someone who can kick your butt across the galaxy. I'm not sure how often Ed McGuinness even drew Supergirl. I searched for examples but didn't find many. Regardless, I love that she was chosen for inclusion in this line. The Power Girl figure released in the same series was also excellent (although I unfortunately won't be reviewing her this week). Let's check out Supergirl below!
Here are the only two images I could find online of McGuinness Supergirls.
