It’s back to school week, and the kids in my neighborhood and the others who attend the public schools have school uniforms to wear. This morning I saw a proud Mom taking pictures of her son (and I would assume his best friend), out in front of a brick house. Both boys were dressed in dark blue button-up shirts, khaki slacks, sneakers, and back packs. Near one of the Catholic schools, plaid skirts and plaid slacks were everywhere, as kids sulkily walked over to the schoolyard. As I got closer to downtown, almost before the turn for the warehouse district, I saw a girl waiting for the bus. She had the normal city school uniform of blue button down shirt, khaki pants (although these stopped before the ankle), sneakers, and blue anklet socks with the Superman logo on the front. This version of Supergirl wears her hair up in a bun on top of her head, and she definitely isn’t a blonde.
And all I could think was –> awesome. Hope the first day goes well. I hope you have a few “Supergirls” in your neighborhood who are ready to tackle their algebra homework.
The character, Supergirl, has her own website page here:
She’s the new kid on the planet with extraordinary strength and skill. Cool, hip and totally independent…Supergirl’s here to make things better for Earth girls.
Off-topic, but interesting: the company Super Hero Stuff sells knee-high T*RDIS socks for Whovians.
