Johanna is “stunned” to see the picture DC’s official website picked for Batgirl’s OFFICIAL picture…and frankly, so are we.
The bulbous insect head is still there, and now her mouth is revealed, but bloodied. Also visible are her breasts, as her costume has conveniently been ripped open to show cleavage. Why would you choose an image of your so-called hero looking like a battering victim to illustrate an encyclopedia-style entry? And when did Batgirl have the time to get the perfectly round implants? (I do think the bent tipped ear point is kind of cute in a totally inappropriate way. Reminds me of Bat-Mite.)
It’s not just the creepy mix of sex and violence, it’s the bad drawing. Is like, one boob coming out of her clavicle and the other out of her lower ribcage? What happened to her chin? Yech.
UPDATE: Hm, as of 2 this afternoon, the official DC Batgirl page seems to have been…taken down. Developing.
