That's because Magnus is ALL man. Isn't it funny that people will get dressed up as Storm Troopers and Batman, but has anyone shown up dressed as the Robot Hunter? It's a darned shame.
I would argue that Saturn Girl, in fact, wears a MAGNUS costume. Magnus did it first! ;-)
And with panache!
Magnus is so manly he doesn't need the "E" at the end of "Good-Bye." Real men drop the silent E.
Here's Mercy Van Vlack in the early/mid 70s as Saturn Girl, and a bunch of fans in Legion costumes at the 1997 Chicago Con, including Sidne Ward as Saturn Girl, and, if you scroll halfway down, Johanna Draper [Carlson] as Shrinking Violet.
Oh, and here's someone from Dragon Con 07.
I love those people! They merit the Disciplines of Magnus Award!
