Psylocke and Captain Marvel are my favorite recent super heroine redesigns. Maybe my favorite period.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Jim Lee’s Psylocke, and Carol’s old costume was cool too, but you can’t deny the pubescent wet dream aspect of both looks. At a time when efforts are being made to have these characters taken more seriously, they may not have been helping. They are not like Emma Frost, where something like sexual domination is part of her character.

Kris Anka, and Jamie McKelvie hit it out of the park with their respective designs. At no point do they sacrifice the characters femininity, and still add substance to their looks. If you would like, you can read up on their thoughts behind the designs here, and here. You also owe a thanks to Kelly Sue DeConnick for Carol’s new look. She was the one to commission Jamie out of her own pocket for it. She believed Carol needed a modernization that much.Marvel loved it as well, and ran with it.

CBR has an article on other recent female who had the remake done on their looks here
