> 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??..

She does look pretty ridiculous, like she's dressed up for halloween all day. And her outfit ISN'T practical at all for wind powers. I keep thinking her clothes will wrap around her head one of these days.

...on her head! Sure, you could argue that Ma Kettle's costume was practical. She did have the sense to put the kettle on her head and cut holes in it. And hey, the Tornado Kids just wore jester outfits when they went up against thugs carrying guns and brass knuckles. And Robin wears booties and shorts. And They All Wear Capes that are both impractical and dangerous (just ask Dollar Bill in the Watchmen...oh wait...you can't because his cape got stuck in a revolving door and he's dead.

Her costume is just as practical as other costumes. It is rather ugly, I'll give you that. But it wasn't as if Ma Hunkle's costume was putting the fear of god into criminals. I'd be more worried that people would connect the dots and figure out that she looks exactly like a freshmen college student going to Gotham U. The girl should at least wear a domino mask or something.
