Classic Melissa Benoist by 5red Classic Melissa Benoist by 5red
I guess it's only natural to wonder what the new TV Supergirl would look like if her costume was closer to the iconic Helen Slater outfit.  Well wonder no more ... Here we see our heroine shortly after transforming for action in a secluded back alley.  (Well, phone booths aren't really an option any more !!)

Wha'da'ya think?  Better..?  Worse..?  Don't care either way..?

This woman is the reason why Supergirl is my favorite female DC superhero (and favorite female superhero period).

The Girl of Steel takes flight on a Journey on earth to fight crime and stand up who is not against the good. She is very defensive

MUCH better! THIS right here is what they SHOULD have gone with. The actual costume is way too dark. Here's hoping the actress will wear blonde wig and reshoot her scenes as Supergirl! A brown haired Supergirl is like nails on a chalkboard!

And good job with this image. It's really awesome. :)

Just uploaded an update.  Wanted to fix some problems with the shadowy red areas, but got tempted into altering her thighs too and adding yellow flashes to the boots.

I kind of like the yellow areas transformed to blue.  And definitely, the brighter blue helps.

'course, the brighter colors are also harder to keep looking clean, as Dean Cain's Clark learned. "Ma, how do you get explosion stains out?"

I think they did a decent job with the costume, but this is even better.  I like the brighter colors and the Helen Slater costume will always be my favorite superheroine costume.

Love it. Maybe add a little yellow detail around top of the boots?

Except for the red stitching on the blue parts, I would be watching this show with that color scheme.

Much better.The costume could definately look to be a bit brighter and I have to agree with DrMuttonchops on this they really don't need that silly 'webbed' look.What's wrong with the classic spandex look?Also the classic emblem looks much better,I hope they upgrade to it as the show goes on.
