Wait, What Kind of "Convention" IS This?
In your era, She-Lah is dating Jake Gyllenhaal! Or maybe she's married to Keith Urban. I forget.
So, how do you solve a problem like She-Lah?
You dare her to fellate a live wire.
The next panel: the Shield tells She-Lah to "go make [him] a sammitch."
I'm not quite sure what to make of She-Lah's robo-togs, here. I mean, she's got the imperious headdress thing goin' on, like the evil queen in "Snow White", but then she pairs it with a drably wholesome ice-skating outfit. It gives off mixed signals. (It's the Mike Piazza of supervillainess costumes!) One gets the feeling that She-Lah would smirkingly order you to get down on your knees, and then proceed to remove the pilled-up lint from the shoulders of your sport coat with one of those sticky little roller things. And then she'd chirp, "There! Isn't that better?"
And you'd wind up cheating on her with the ball-cutting robot next door.
