|I'm really digging having a female superhero who isn't merely a plot device or a 13 year-old boy's fantasy.

|American Woman is not a kindergarten teacher either! ;)|

|What does the rest of her costume look like? I think we need a cheesecake pin-up show down! A superheroine cannot go very long without a whole fan art pin-up book of her own.|

|American Woman is a babe. I'd let her mangle me with those gloves.|
by L.S.Erhardt on 4/9/2012 @ 8:06pm
|I'd like to see her mangle anyone who ogles.|
I really want to see a female hero who isn't sexualized for anyone's enjoyment (other than her own).

|@ Chris - I think you see the majority of her awesome costume next week (her costume was designed by the author, Megan, BTW, I'm not rad enough to do that. I just don't have knowledge of what makes a good Women's boot). I've been drawing Star for four or five years, and she has yet to pose for cheesecake pin-ups. I'm sure she's flattered, but far too busy to bother with that sort of stuff! ;)|
@NiN, She's not a nun, either, and mangling is so uncivilized. Perhaps a quick elbow to the gut is all you really need? ;)
@Thorax, sigh, indeed....;)

|She drives a manual. No biggie. Lots of women like manual transmissions. Manual transmissions typically result in improved fuel economy.|
I also notice she is driving apparently a VW Beetle. An imported vehicle from Germany.
Clearly, AW is making two very powerful attacks on being "American". She's driving an import. But not just that, it's a fuel-saving import. Those are two things a true, red-blooded 'Murican woman would never do.
Only possible reason for the discrepancy is that she's a double agent for the eastern European socialist state of Fredoikizan.

|Very astute readership! Impressed! Most Impressed!!!|
First off, everything is by design. Nothing is an accident. The Beetle is on purpose.
Plus, What's more American than popularity? AW would definitely need to a popular car. The Beetle is an icon. And I have honestly not found a contemporary American car that is as fun to draw. Blame Detroit.
What would you chose as a high-performance car that a American Woman would look good behind? And Star can really drive, so it had to be something that could say, win the LeMans or a rally race and excel at commuting 80 miles a day?...Enter the TDI. (Hers is not stock either, it's...altered.)
Actually the VW Beetle TDI is built in Mexico. Passing off an immigrant/import as an American? That is America, right? Plus, that's what the paint job is for. And it gets something around 47MPG last we checked!
Great eyes, N-S!

|Other cars will appear in the series. And for each character there is a perfect matching mode of transport...(I was always partial to the early GMC Suburbans).

|I was just informed, 49MPG on the last fill up...So awesome.
