Supergirl Likes Tentacle Porn

There's a title that will increase my hits!

In Action Comics v1 #306 (Nov 1963), the pre-crisis Supergirl*, Linda Danvers, is out on a date with her boyfriend, Dick. In order to protect her secret identity as the Maid of Might, she always has to do the opposite of her super-identity and pretend to be scared of the huge phallus-limbed monster attacking the heroine on the movie screen. Of course in a typical move by the creative team, when it comes to Comics Code constrained art the guys get clever with a suggestive illustration any reader of the pulps and 50's pre-code comics will be familiar with. It's no error the on-screen actress has a good grip on the one-eyed tentacle.

However, once that pesky CCA filter is removed you can see the panel as it was originally intended to have been published.
Linda is obviously enjoying the flick. The creature probably reminds her of her ex-boyfriend, that guy from Rogulutz VI who never calls.

* The only Supergirl, duh.

  1. I like the "now I am an ordinary member of the weaker sex" part. Spoken like a true alien. :)
