Bombshells Shazam Mary Hand Salute

The hand salute is almost always performed with the right hand. Left-handed salutes are acceptable only when it's impossible to salute with a right hand (if you're an amputee, if you're holding someone or operating machinery, etc). Therefore, I was surprised that DC went ahead with a left-handed salute for Bombshells Shazam Mary, despite the outcry over the first Sideshow Supergirl PF's left-handed salute.



Do you want the statue "as is" or DC to reverse the statue? (This should be fairly easy since Tim Miller now sculpts digitally.)

There is precedence for DC changing handedness.

I hadn’t noticed it until you pointed it out but now that you have I can’t unsee it and I think they should change it. It annoys me almost as much as Black Widow holding two guns she won’t be able to reload unless she puts one down first.

Military personnel aren't the only people who salute.

The salute is weird but I can look past it. The thing that bugs me the most is the name on the statue.
