Saturn Girl

Saturn Girl, along with Cosmic Boy and Lightning Lad, was one of the three founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and has always kind of served as a mother figure to the other legionnaires. Except of course for the period in the mid-70s when she sported this Mike Grell Kim Metzger-designed and porn star-inspired uniform, making her more of a MILF figure to the other legionnaires.

I like this drawing, but I don't love it. I have another in the works, so keep your eyes peeled.

Great illustration Rob, definitely love the uniform that she is wearing. Another great illo, as always! That particular uniform reminds me of the 'painted-on' swimsuits that are the rage now in some places. Very well done.

Sorry, guy! The costume was designed by one Kim Metzger and was first drawn in a Legion comic by Winslow Mortimer several years before Mike Grell started working in comics:

I stand corrected!

And here I was thinking that Dave Cockrum, who did mass redesigns of most Legion characters in 1972 or so, did that Saturn Girl costume. He drew the LSH for a short while, then left for Marvel and Grell replaced him. Never heard of Metzger.

Now it's my turn to stand corrected! Richard's right:
