    I said I didn't know. I haven't seen a previous picture of her.

    They got rid of all the McFarlane embellishments you see in the Image version because they don't make sense in the Marvel U, which I agree with. But I can't bring myself to care. She looks incredibly generic.

    This is such a non-story to me.

    The redesign makes me very sad

    Do they have to change her appearance because that's the part that Todd created and therefor owns? I would think if they had the choice they should make her as true to her classic appearance as possible and after she's established, then you can start changing the costume....

    After all of the debate over designing practical and tasteful costumes/uniforms for female charcters this seems to be a huge step backwards. Even Gammora has a more sensible look and it is just as aesthetically pleasing. Understanding, this is a comic and taking in suspense of disbelief there is still the matter of in the cold vastness of space we have a woman basically who appears to have steped off of a SI swimsuit cover. Another point why would an anyone wear a scarf, sash, of anything else that could be used to strangle them in battle around their necks? It looks great! JQ is a brilliant artist no denying that but if he is going to upgrade I think he should have challenged himself a bit.

    Headdress. Metal bra. Next to no clothing.

    What's to opine about? They did practically nothing.

    Well... I guess her hair length is more sensible.

    I am not at all familiar with the character but I have to echo that I am disappointed in the bimbo in armored brassiere look. I wish there was one more choice about it being impractical and sexist. But I guess that goes for about 95 % of superhero costumes.

    The only thing that matters about costumery is that it looks good. Everything this side of Iron Man and Cap's recent ugly redesign is impractical.

    She looks like the alternate costume of Sif from a Marvel Fighting Game.

    It looks better than Todd's design of her, but that's not saying much.
