wow jason, okay, i get it, Di is supposed to be stacked, but god DAMN there is something wrong with her boobs if they look like that when she’s lying on her back. kinda sideeyeing your artistic choices here a lil.
Usually if a girl lays down and her breasts don’t then it means they’re fake. Di probably wears the sports bra most of the time which would keep her minimized. Assuming this was an attempt at sexy time interrupted by exhaustion, then she could have been wearing a push up bra that put everything in place and wouldn’t let it go.
2 hours after the battle? Sheesh. That girl’s healed up FAST. …shouldn’t she have probably gone to the hospital or something?
The ability of Diane’s “attributes” to turn males into drooling fanboys/idiots notwithstanding, I wonder if she ever figured out how to unlock Future Guth’s globe for her.
Baxter. Dude. Voyeur much?
Also settles the debate over whether Di’s assets are real. I guess it would make sense for Di to intentionally carry around heavy back-straining objects all the time. Good training
@Miscreant Mutt- She did. It was early on in “Betrayal”, when the team went to visit Guth and found out his sphere contained only notes on his own future mathematical research.
As for this comic, what I find most interesting is the shading. It looks like Baxter’s book itself is lighting the room, which is a neat idea.
…Lost in this discussion: Baxter is reading a book. Not tweeting, blogging, ego-googling, or anything else electronic – and thus, distracting. He doesn’t even have the TV on.
@MisterTeatime – Bax’s book is being lit by one of those booklights that attach to the book.
So, being full chested would usually be an interference for fighting, I would think. But maybe it distracts her opponents…
“Puny female! Your bra – zen appearance will not bust my concentration – that lactate-… er, TACTIC will not D-cup-… er, DEFEAT meee…. drooool
…am i the only non-dude who comments here?
Well, it is one of the excuses that Power Girl has used in the past as to why her costume looks the way it does.* You know.. The Boob Window, and she has assets which according to Black Canary should be considered National Treasures.
*: The costume shows what I am: female, healthy. If men want to degrade themselves by staring, that’s their problem, I’m not going to apologize for it.
Personally, I like the following explanation better, then again, it’s a bit mushier, as it hails from a conversation with Big Blue Boyscout himself: “the first time I made this costume, I wanted to have a symbol, like you. I just…I couldn’t think of anything. I thought eventually, I’d figure it out. And close the hole. But I haven’t.”
It took Baxter almost twenty minutes to figure out how to turn on that book. He’s not accustomed to the analog variety.
As this is a rare comment for me, it will come out as a bit of a.. BROism.. But why has no-one commented on the VERY close resemblance to a cheap love doll going on here. Considering the complexity of the relationship, it might be intentional.. Not actually digging the art this time..
@IS_Wolf: That second one made me cry the first time I read it.
(Also I believe it came in the same issue as my favorite debunked Power Girl origin story ever: Karen Starr is actually Laurel Gand/Andromeda, the Daxamite member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, sent back in time to aid the Justice Society of America in a preemptive strike against Mordru the Merciless. I mean… how many writers even *know* that the JSA and LSH have a shared archnemesis?)
Just to complete the hat trick of non-Fans!-related comments, you may be interested in this Power Girl emblem I designed based on the Superman emblem and the idea that the five yellow areas make up the symbol of the House of El: http://i.imgur.com/SfW1A.png
I don’t normaly comment here, but a comic I love is ocming to an end….
Aaaannnnndd y’all are being… really… gross. Seriously, that old, hackneyed, BS ‘bewbs are TACTICAL to DISTRACT THE ENEMY’. Even when the enemies are robots, aliens, scientists, or maybe just not complete effing morons. No. It’s bullshit. Power girl needs an emblem. Both ‘boobs are HEALTHY HONEST’ (sooo kryptonians were into estrogen supplements?) and ‘I COULDNT THINK OF ANYTHING are bs. Most excuses to draw women like they’re always in Maxim are pretty shitty.
But? Leave Didi out of it. The way shes laying here is a little off, and yeah it looks wonky. But it looks like shes wearing some kind of support to bed- maybe even the invisible, sticks-to-skin version of the power armor. She’s had to undergo a very intense character arc of learning about herself, and humility, and just finished being BADASS. So maybe y’all could just… find something else to foucus on about this little slice of closure then BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS ARE HER BOOBS REAL BOOBS.
Because. Ynno. Nothing else about a scene where shes comfortable sleeping and probably drooling on the pillow in front of someone else is telling and interesting.
@Jesse Seems kinda like it.
Man, do I read the scene differently than most. Or at least the breasts.
Di is hurting. She’s not injured so much as battered, but she’s not up for those carnal things. However, she’s making a statement. Yes, she’s asleep, and yes she’s wearing support garments and yes, they’re meant to… well… present.
This isn’t Jason being a perv. This is Di telling Bax “yes. You got me. I wasn’t kidding. If I weren’t peeing blood, this would be your lucky night.”
But there’s also a less obvious message here. Di is telling Bax “you can be here. I trust you here. Even without the usual masks.” It’s not to the point of “I trust you here when I’m in an old ratty sleep shirt and not even trying to look Teh Hot,” but it’s a step.
Baxter, on the other hand, is at a slight remove. He’s watching over her, as opposing to leering. He’s not joining her because she’s in no shape for that. At the same time, he’s also not objectifying her. He’s not Tim-Mittsing — he’s concerned for her well being in the wake of her fight.
The breasts, artistically, represent the as-yet unresolved sexual tension. It’s still there, and still present. However, most of Di’s body is concealed — not meaning she’s hiding, but that the sexual tension is only a hint, not the In Your Face we’ve seen before. The book (actual book, as @moelane said above) represents an older way of doing things — a remove, as we said. A certain gentility. And the setting aside of the frantic up-to-the-minute tweet-your-followers pace. He’s offline. He’s reading. Even as she sleeps and he doesn’t, it’s still just the two of them. The book light illuminates Baxter’s face, reflecting the knowledge he’s gained through all this.
Or more to the point, the wisdom.
Finally. The Matrix. The Lion King. The Magic Kingdom. (At least, I think that’s Cinderella’s castle.) Somewhere between the primal nature of the Pride, the strength of the Lioness… and the wired, interconnected world of the eternally connected, there is Happily Ever After. They’ve found their common ground.
Alternately, it could just be a nice drawing.
She has to be wearing support garments. Otherwise your boobs slump (mostly) into your armpits when you sleep on your back. Trust me, I know.
When they’re THAT big, I don’t care how perky they are. They’re in your armpits unless you’ve got suspension cables preventing it. Or magic. Or anti-gravity technology.
Yeah… I didn’t focus on her breasts, other than see shoulder straps to determine she was wearing something to bed (it helped put the situation in context – although then I saw the comic title below it).
She’s asleep and drooling on her pillow, and Bax is simply sitting there reading a book – as the title said – watching over her.
I have to agree, fixating on whether her breasts are real or not is a lot odd. Especially as its a comic with less than realistic art to begin with. And I’m a guy who likes breasts as much as the next straight guy and has absolutely no issue with nudity or sex or Power Girl’s cleavage. And even I thought these comments weird!
@ Eric Burns-White … Notice the posters not up there? No more Star-Wars-Kill-Your-Sensi. Her attire at the end of the regular story established that she’d replaced Rumy. But here, in her room, flashing backwards a few months, shows that she really had gotten over that hangup pretty well.
Mr. Teatime: Future Guth had two globes, one for present Guth and one for Di. The latter is the one I was referring to.
We’ve seen the contents of both globes. Di’s contained a somewhat cryptic message about her favorite movie, which she interpreted when she brought Ally with her to stop Rumy’s rampage.
I’m really, terribly sorry, T. But I skipped the last few messages before yours, and the first thing I read was “We’ve seen the contents of both globes.”
My interpretation was, predictably, filthy.
@Ajoxer: So it wasn’t just me, then. *blush*
One last bit!
http://www.faans.com/books1-6/index.php?p=1737 is the last time (to my recollection) we’ve seen Di in bed. Note the fact that yes, indeed, she wears support garments to bed. Whether or not this is a wise choice I lead to better qualified people, but at least we have confirmation this is a standard clothing choice for her.
Also, notice that she’s essentially sprawled in that picture — her sleep disturbed. In the one up above, she’s in full, relaxed sleep. Growth in two poses.
I would say on the support garments to bed statement that the wisdom depends on the quality, in my opinion most bras chafe too much for comfy sleep but then I am a super sensitive sleeper and hate shopping enough to kinda go “yeah this fits lets go” when shopping and not really think about anything else till its far too late. However I can say that a large bosom is equally as unwieldy when trying to sleep as it is when trying to deal with it for anything else. After oh lets say 10 years of dealing with it I have learned to almost always find a way to sleep comfortably but have, on some less sleeping successful nights, considered the advantages of a bra that is comfortable enough to wear at night would be.
Know what I see here?
I see Bax standing guard over Di in a way that makes perfect sense for him. If she wakes and needs anything, he’s right there.
Will something more like what some people are thinking happen here in a few months? Probably. Hopefully. But right now Bax is being a caring, concerned friend.
And that speaks volumes about both of these two people to me.
