I will now say it; the new Power Girl costume is beyond ugly

I don’t know how I missed Kevin Maguire’s variant for #1 of Worlds’ Finest from a few days ago.

Lucky I guess. I mean the facial work is okay and Helena looks okay. But Power Girl?

The bottom of her costume looks like a speed skater’s costume. The top looks like … I don’t even know what to say.
