One of my favorite superhero groups of all time is the Legion of Superheroes, particularly their early adventures as told in Adventure Comics in the 60’s, written by John Forte and illustrated by Edmond Hamilton and the magnificent Curt Swan. The Legion of Superheroes is a group of teenagers in the 30th century who took on superheroing upon the inspiration of Superman. The 60’s would have to be the peak of their career, as the quality of the stories were downhill from there as evidenced by two horrible reboots. It was back in 2008 when we finally got our original Legion back courtesy of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s Superman and the Legion of Superheroes, which I think is one of the best story lines of all time. Since that wonderful comeback Paul Levitz has taken the writing reins, and things have, once again, been quite unexciting.

More on the sense of plateauing of stories in the ongoing Legion of Superheroes series later, because I’ve just re-read Superman and the Legion of Superheroes and I can’t believe I’ve never blogged about Night Girl’s boob window before, or called anyone’s attention to it in particular Neurologist Shipper Jack Knight. Now Powergirl’s boob window I’ve blogged about two years ago, but Night Girl’s BW should rival hers in terms of  awesome creativity.

You see Night Girl was a member of the Legion of Substitute Heroes, applicants who were rejected for one reason or another. Night Girl has super strength, except she only has it in the dark. Back in the 60’s she had on her chest the emblem of an owl’s head. The 2008 version still has an owl, except the eyes are bare breast tissue and the beak is her cleavage. Balut na balot ang buong katawan except for…. the owl boob window.
