Yes, Brothers and Sisters, I have cast off the shackles of Victorian and Edwardian repression, and stepped firmly into the Future! Hello, Roaring Twenties! After more than thirty years, I have CUT my hair! I have cast off my corsets and petticoats, and soon will riding in a "roadster" and listening to "jazz", while drinking bathtub gin. I'll still wear gloves and a hat to go out and get the paper and the mail, because even I have standards, but all those cloche hats in the attic are going to FIT now!
A number of times in my misspent youth, I was informed that I rather resembled Linda Carter. Those days are past me now, but I DO have Soranik Natu's hairstyle. And I'll need a lot less shampoo.
Moving right along:
This is a very cool picture of Soranik, by Pat Gleason.
I like Soranik. I've liked her from the start. She's smart, talented, slightly superstitious, but extremely competent and she doesn't take guff from anybody, including Guy Gardner, Salakk, Kilowog and Iolande. I like her costume too, she's actually covered instead of flying all over the universe in a bikini or mini-skirt.
I really like the fact that she's gone back incognito to Korugar, trying to do her small bit to educate and help people. She and Guy were the ones who figured out what was wrong with Mogo! I'm beginning to think however, that it wasn't Despotillis that was infecting Mogo at all. It was described as a fungus, and Despotillis is a virus. I'm more inclined to think that it was Despotillis that infected Kyle's Mother, since Soranik was helpless when it came to that diagnosis, and she was able to winkle out what was the problem with Mogo pretty darned quickly. Sinestro has all sorts of tricks up his sleeve!
Well, pip pip and all that. I've gone with the other Sufferagettes to handcuff ourselves to the railngs outside of DC and demand the vote.
