Elasti-Girl The Good Parts Version 10

We have made it to the 10th installment of everybody's favorite size shifting heroine.  At least she's mine and since you're reading this I have to assume she's in your top five as well.  

This brings us up to the 89th issue of Doom Patrol and marks a minor milestone for the character.  Up until now we've seen Rita fighting crime in her green mini-dress.  Toss a Star Fleet insignia on that thing, alter the color, and she could have walked onto the Star Trek set without anyone batting an eye.  In a couple years since this comic came out in '64 well before the TV show launched in '66.

I've been of two minds concerning this outfit.  On the one hand it has a sleekness that I can appreciate.  And I'm not just talking about the short skirt on the frequently giant lady either.  On the other hand there are times when I wanted more contrast.  I love the pencils, but there are times when the colorist just doesn't live up to them and usually it comes down to the the splotch of green that is Rita's uniform.

Well this issue sees the end of the original uniform and introduces the one that 60's era Rita will be remembered by to this day.  Before we get to that let's take one final look at the original outfit.

The very last time we see this uniform on panel.
