Justice Society of America #1 Cover- Homage or Boob Fest?
I cry foul as of now.
Yes, one notices that Power Girl has gotten her boobies. The cut out in her chest area would make that obvious, no matter what the angle. The thing people aren't talking about is this: at the same angle, Mr. Terrific's package is on pretty fine display as well. Does that mean that the cover is double sexist? Is this a sign of the apocalypse?
In my mind this is a simple homage to the cover of All Star Squadron #1. That particular cover was also given tribute to on the cover of Alter Ego #32.
No one cried foul then, but I guess that is because there were only men pictured at the table then. From where I see it, I felt Power Girl's chest was pretty tame compared to other versions I have seen.
I choose to take this as a tribute to the great cover done by Rich Burchett and not to read more into it then needs be done. That is my two cents and my final word on the subject.
