Superman Cosplay: Supergirl (RuffleButt) Cosplay 07 OCT 2013

American cosplayer RuffleButt (also known as Jessie Pridemore) makes an appearance in today’s comic book cosplay entry, bringing to life Kara Zor-El, better known to us as the current incarnation of Supergirl!

Kara Zor-El was introduced as Superman’s cousin, having survived the destruction of Krypton in much the same way as what he had, but damage sustained to her escape pod explained the time lapse in her arrival here on Earth, as well as the difference in age (she’s much younger than him, though he is supposed to be much younger than her!)

She has pretty much the same powers as what her more famous cousin possesses, in other words invulnerability, super strength, super speed, flight, etc.

This particular costume is based on artist Michael Turner’s popular representation of Supergirl.
