> QUICK---someone give Ma Hunkle a raise cause her little angel has apparently hit the local Goodwill to put together this ridiculous excuse for a costume..Its distracting and I cant stand to look at it again..How could GOG at least not do something about THIS??!! First, no teenage girl would be remotely caught dead wearing any of this..striped socks? A HAT (I bet thats handy with the wind powers!!)..COME ON..enough...this is beyond a bad costume..I dont like cyclone and prob never will because how can i take any character seriously who is dressed like thrift store trailer trash??..


The striped stockings are the first clue. Maxine's obsession with L. Frank Baum is the second. Frankie, Maxine's "flying" monkey, is the third...ringing any bells yet?

The striped stockings go back to the movie version of the Wizard of Oz. Remember the Wicked Witch of the East? Maxine also comments in the first issue on her preference for the musical Wicked, which is based on the book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. In that book, the Wicked Witches aren't really wicked, just have a different point of view.

It should also be noted, that the Wicked Witch of the East died accidentally due to a tornado dropping a house on her.


You might think that the costume Cyclone wears is stupid and just thrown together, but its actually right in line with her character, and her obsession with Baum's Oz stories.
