I just read Parzival's Post about Spider-Woman. I caught the hoopla on the news a couple of days ago.

I finished "Trekker Omnibus" the other day. Maybe folks will feel better about Mercy St. Clair's attire?

Unless the cape has some morphing camouflage, or hides her heat signature I'd say ditch it, looks silly.

Thanks for the heads up, I put it on my "one day" list.

You're welcome.
I never understood the use of capes even in the super hero genres. Seems like it would always get caught on/in something, as what happened to the villain in "The Incredibles." :)

As for capes, Batman has used his as weapon, a smoke/gas filter, glider wings, a decoy, a distraction/misdirection tool, camouflage (of a sort, as in hiding in the dark) and a way of distorting his actual target profile so as to throw off the aim of gunshots. And of course to create the terrifying image of a giant bat swooping out of the darkness. But then, he's Batman. grin
