Dark Crisis To Bring Back Young Justice Villain – The Mighty Endowed?

The Mighty Endowed? I am not sure how many times I am going to have to type out the words "it was a different time" but… it was a different time. Peter David and Todd Nauck successfully launched the Young Justice comics book at DC Comics back in 1998. With Conner Kent, Bart Allen and Tim Drake. And in that very first issue featured Professor Nina Dowd, an architect who uncovers a mysterious relic.

Turns out that it is a relic of the New Gods society, buried on Earth. It transforms her into a new form, one that sees her taking the role of a supervillain with the power of a New God.

And also large breasts. This seems to be her most notable attribute, both in her name and in the attitude of the teenage boys around her who seem to have been watching Monty Python And The Holy Grail, though her breasts – and their size – is hidden on panel. It was a different time.

That's basically it for The Mighty Endowed. She then turned up again in a two page story in Young Justice Secret Files and her powers have expanded. She can use her breasts to hypnotise people.

It was, all together, "It was a different time". Well done, we could take that act round the world, I especially like the harmonies. But again The Mighty Endpowed has the same weakness.

A centre of gravity. Anyway, The Mighty Endowed was forgotten, no one cosplays as her, she hasn't turned up in any Secret Society Of Super-Villains. However, Bleeding Cool hears that she will be turning up in a major way in Dark Crisis: Young Justice. And while the jokes haven't aged, her breasts will no longer be hidden and will be revealed to be, well, no bigger than any other supervillain in the nineties. Also, written and drawn by women. Well, after all, it is a different time..
