pic No. Not what you think.

Quite the opposite, actually.

Bleeding Cool reports that when DC relaunches their entire line of books in September, the various women of the DCU will all be clothed properly.

Meaning, out with the skimpy bikini-clad underwear designed costumes that fanboys drool over, and in with fully covered legs.

Am I back in Catholic grammar school again? Oh, wait they did wear plaid skirts, at least.

Reportedly, they can still have skin-tight black leggings (or whatever) -- but show no skin.

I thought it was my undestanding that the purpose of the relaunch is to ATTRACT new readers.  Have the DC execs visited a public school in the last decade? Maybe, DC, with the younger super heroes, is going for a much much younger crowd? Is it even that big of a deal?

Recently, DC remade Wonder Woman with a similar look and even had Supergirl where shorts underneath her skirt - so this really comes as no surprise.

AS BC notes, no mention of the boobs, though -- Power Girl might be safe.
