The first image that popped into my head when I saw this week's topic was Lady Justice holding her sword and set of scales. I deliberately removed the blindfold from my superhero interpretation as I think it's fairly impractical for someone wielding a sword. The hardest part was figuring out what she should wear. She went through several wardrobe changes; Robin-Hood-style, 17th-Century-frock-coat-and-rapier-style and Joan-of-Arc-style. Although her final costume is rather typical of recent hero-wear she seems most comfortable in this outfit. That and I have just finished reading Fray.

Love your take on this topic. I'm a huge Whedon fan and just loved Fray. In fact, I named my cat Fray. This modern wardrobe rendition reminds me of Jessica Jones from Alias by Brian Michael Bendis. If you haven't read this comic, I highly recommend it!
