Emma: Black is back, but with some added armor. Did Carol take some style notes from RoboCop? Sleek metallic pieces replace the now retro-seeming leotard. There is also no room for cut-outs or thigh high boots in this get-up. Fashion is cyclical whether on the runway, in film or comic books, which means the return of the eye mask! It probably isn’t the greatest way to conceal identity, but it is a fun throwback. New additions that aren’t particularly elegant also include elbow and knee pads, which is also a repeated theme you will see across a number of these ‘90s looks.
Sara: I think this is the most ‘90s, Linda Hamilton in T2 look, but also I’m pretty sure this outfit is from like 2003, which makes it a truly perplexing piece of art. This was from one of Carol’s kind of directionless, “girl, wyd?” stints after she’d briefly retired her Ms. Marvel look once more but before she’d switched it up to her modern look. There isn’t much to say about this one, except it was a time, it was a place.
