Part 5 of Supergirl's comic book costumes.
When a Supergirl imposter commits a series of thefts and unleashes a plague of insects on the city of San Francisco, the real Supergirl quickly hunts her down. The imposter is really Glynix of the planet Liquel II. She blackmails Supergirl into helping her keep her kingdom after it is threatened by a usurper. Supergirl agrees to help Glynix and the pair take off to Liquel II. Supergirl acts as Glynix's champion as she faces off against the usurper's champion, a gigantic blue-skinned gladiatrix. Though her opponent seems invincible at first, Supergirl finds a way to outsmart her. After winning the match, Supergirl ensures the safety of Glynix and her mate Largyn before heading back to Earth.
Shortly after, Supergirl foils a bank robbery committed by a robot. When it takes off, she follows it to its master and stumbles upon a web of intrigue decades in the making. The inventor building the robots is a former convict who is seeking revenge for having been taken away from his son decades before. He had stolen $25,000 to pay for his son's surgery and viewed the theft as a justified crime. Nevertheless, the years apart from his son had driven him mad and he decided to unleash his robots on banks within the city. However, he failed to realize his son was a teller at one of these banks. Supergirl races against the clock to prevent the destruction but in doing so was unable to save the inventor who lost his life in an explosion.
This costume is one of Supergirl's lesser known looks. She wore it for two issues in the early '70s before returning to the famous hot pants. This particular look was a rather functional look for the character and was a total 360 from the more daring costumes she'd taken to wearing previously. This costume consisted of a full bodysuit in blue which featured the familiar S-shield and a knee-length cape attached to the collar. She accessorized with red boots and gloves that were trimmed with yellow. She completed the look with a gold belt with the S-shield as its buckle. I feel this is actually one of the more interesting looks Supergirl had worn in the past and could have been worn for much longer than she had. While the double shield is a bit much, I appreciate the full bodysuit and the gloves were a chic touch. Plus, you can't go wrong with a retro flip hairstyle!
