    How dare she?!? Especially after she helped take Julia's daughter away!

    this is her "Penance." this strangely doesn't make me like her more. she doesn't even look half as good as Julia did in the costume.

    Default "Young Allies" Arana Makeover

    I don't know about this. I miss the traditional Arana look already.

    I can dig it. I, too, like the original Arana design, but this will do. I imagine it might have something to do with the fact that she doesn't have any powers (or half her powers??? I skipped that last Arana/Spidey Special) anymore. Maybe its a symbiote??? I'm excited for this series either way, and this actually adds to the fact that this launch is real similar to the New Warriors in that Nova, in the original series (and in the Faeber reboot) had a new costume that didn't really go over well.

    I really liked the Nomad backups, so I'll be getting this. Way to go Mckeever! This was a complete turnaround from that OTHER teen book he did when he was at that OTHER comic company....

    Yeah, I'd really love to know if Julia's ok with this.

    Speaking of which, where IS Julia? Still in Canada?

    That's a daring redesign - substituting something an athletic person might actually wear for comfort and ease of movement in favor of a shiny skintight suit.

    Truly we live in a forward-thinking age that challenges the perception of comics readers as slightly fetishistic pervs!

    I am rather curious as to why they gave her Julia's costume and what that means for her character. Also, it doesn't really work for Arana as well as it did for Arachne.
    But despite the initial disappointment in this move, I am looking forward to the Young Allies series.

    Old costume was better.

    I prefer her regular outfit. Yeah, it's not traditional super hero attire, but she looked parkour-inspired and it separated her from the mold. But maybe that's the point of putting her in a costume, to reign her in.

    Though, I am curious why she is wearing a shoot-off of Arachne's costume.

    I thought Arana's original outfit, while okay, was a little too all over the place.

    I think this new works for her, although Julia will most likely go back to her old Secret Wars outfit.

    I don't really like it. If they wanted to redesign her costume, they should have actually redesigned it instead of just copying Julia Carpenters. That's just boring.
