Hm.

Captain Liberty looks at herself in the mirror critically, turning to the side a little, and narrowing her eyes at herself. Maybe if she keeps looking from different angles, the costume won't look quite so... not for teen eyes. Really, it's her responsibility as a teacher, a superhero and a woman to not perpetuate stereotypes and do whatever she could to stop the objectification of women, and shouldn't she give all these teenage girls something positive to reflect on? She is a superhero, dammit, and you sometimes have to start small.

Still... the cleavage at least means no one would be falling asleep in class.

She compromises by grabbing a cardigan to put over it. It looks stupid, but probably more respectable. Though stupid. She'll have to think about this.

She starts cursing when the phone eings, stalking over to it with her boots clanking on the kitchen floor as she retrieves her cell. "You've reached Captain Liberty," she says.

"Janet?"

She sighs. "Not now, Batmanuel. I'm busy." Nevermind that she'd been planning on calling him to gloat about her date.

"Oh? Saving the world from some devastating force we've never seen before?"

"No. I'm teaching a class-"

"BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'M DOING!"

Another sigh, this time matched with an eyeroll. "You really called during the middle of a fight to say 'I told you so?'"

"NO NO NO. COME BAC-"

"Because lemme tell you," she says, adjusting the stupid cardigan, "you can go ahead and do whatever you want to do. It doesn't matter. I have my own life here now, and-"

Whoosh from the other end of the line, followed by a "GAH! JANET I HAVE-"

"What? Something to tell me? Oh, sure, it's all about you," she says. "Well, listen up, bucko, that ship has sailed! Goodbye!"

"NO WAIT!"

She's already hung up. She almost misses the days of being able to slam down a phone on a receiver. It was much more satisfying that way.

Looking at the time, she makes a little "Eep" sound, and grabs a Pop-Tart to eat on the way.
