I see this C-cup as Robinson's intent to rectify things back to the way he intended when he created her originally.
    Weeeellll... I will point out that Kendra's very, VERY first appearance featured a massive concession to T&A, with Kendra pulling her shirt up to expose underboob, then a topless, bending over pose (in shadow, but with full outline), and they were pretty large there. (Don't judge me for remembering, I was a teenager!)

    But I have no trouble believing that's not what Robinson intended, and I don't remember that kind of thing ever being repeated with her.

    Yeah, and for those who think double gun wielding is a 90s thing these two gentlemen would like to have words with you:

    Was this JSA #1 where she's on top of a cliff staring outwards? Hmm gonna have to find that issue and see...for educational purposes, of course.

    Lotsa eyeshadow too, as my teenage self recalls.

    Agreed. Zombies = Solomon Grundy



    EDIT: In our zombie-crazed culture with movies like Brad Pitt's World War Z coming out in the months ahead, it would be uber cool to see a classic JSA villain like Grundy get the spotlight in the big initial storyarc. Personally, the idea of JSA versus a zombie army sounds like a truly awesome idea.

    Sorry if someone replied to this in a later page (I'm working through this thread from front to back). Actually, Didio stated the official name is Prime Earth---not Earth Prime.

    *Prime Earth
    *Earth 1 (the graphic novel line continuity)
    *Earth 2 (the JSA continuity)

    So all the numbered Earths come after Prime Earth.

    She reminds of Swift, from the Authority. Which is not a bad thing.

Robinson hinted it would be a JSA villain and also an Alan Scott villain.

    "Grundy like Bird lady". Great episode of JLAU.
    Never saw it, but I love your comments here--and I share your view. It seems so obvious that it's Grundy...but obvious in a good way.

    That's cool about Hawkgirl versus Grundy. I wish I'd seen it. Sounds super.

    Looks awesome . Which kind of makes me sad given that Hawkman right now is so not awesome

    Here's a quick overview of the "Prime" universes off the top of my head (if anyone notices if I'm missing any please feel free to correct me):

    *Earth-Prime - Pre-Crisis, The Earth/universe WE are on in reality with no superheroes, no superpowers, except for Superboy Prime (where the original "Superboy" comics take place).

    *Earth Prime (unofficially) - Post-Crisis, The Earth/universe WE are on in reality with no superheroes, no superpowers, no Superboy Prime, where we last saw an alternate version of Wally West (Walter) end up. This universe is not part of any multiverse, but is part of Hypertime.

    *Earth Prime - Post-IC, The Earth/universe WE are on in reality with no superheroes, no superpowers, where the same Superboy Prime from Pre-Crisis Earth-Prime is retroactively fit into...for all intents and purposes, it is different, but the same.

    Prime Earth - Post-Flashpoint/New 52, The Earth/universe where as far as we know, all the titles DC is publishing at the moment are taking place in except for Earth Two, and at times Worlds' Finest.
    Wow, much more in-depth than my reply to that comment. Yes, you got it right.

    And though I groaned a bit when I heard Didio had flipped it to Prime Earth, it's actually kind of grown on me. I like the fact that the numbered Earths all come after THE Prime Earth.

    I wouldn't attach too much importance to it one way or the other -- a few years from now no one is going to remember those Earth-One graphic novels, and everyone is just going to call "Prime Earth" Earth 1. Not out of spite or obstinance, just because that's what everyone's used to calling it and thinks of it as.

    Did any of you get the DC free comic this weekend?
    That's not Kendra Sanders/Saunders(whichever they were using, I forget).
    Kendra yes, but not Sanders. . .
