1. Designer Alex Law noticed that little costumed girls were kicking serious ass, and began illustrating all thier fierceness on bettersupes.
“Here’s an original hero, Lightning Girl!”
2. Alex was inspired to do the project because, “Kids are more impressionable than you, but kids can also be less restricted by cultural gender norms than you.”
“This original submission is MEGA MUSCLE GIRL. SHE WILL SAVE YOU WITH HER MUSCLES!!”
3. “Kids are more creative than you, and they’re better at making superheroes than you.”
“This original submission is The Curly Girlie! From the mother: ‘Her superhero is named The Curly Girlie. She uses her long curly hair to lasso the bad guys, and has laser vision.’”
4. He’s certainly not wrong.
“This hero is Rainbow Heart! According to Rainbow Heart, ‘the heart on her sword makes ‘the bad guys’ have a change of heart and want to be good guys who do good things.’ How sweet. :> I gave her a super ★~*かわいい*~★ magical girl theme. Having grown up on Magic Knight Rayearth and Card Captor Sakura, I think if you have a daughter who likes both action and cute sparkly stuff, magical girl comics can be very entertaining!”
6. Like Princess Batman.
“Okay, so I’m not sure why but for some reason there are a ton, a TON, of Princess Batman costumes, possibly more than the standard Batgirl costume. They come in 2 different flavors, bumblebee and hot pink. So, I’m just making one big Super Princess Batman compilation post (alternatively Ballerina Batman since those fluffy skirts can be ambiguous).”
