I'll explain again:
The DC comic with DC Teela:
This was titled "To tempt the gods". That story ran over several issues. Teela was in her barbarian/bikini outfit in that first issue as shown here:
In the second issue, Teela was back in her regular outfit, not her bikini. That wasn't an inconsistency, with the artist not remembering what he had drawn in that previous issue or with him being too lazy in the first issue.
This is what I'm saying is planned out in advance. The three-part story wasn't written haphazzardly with no direction whatsoever and months apart, or without the artist having the ability to refer to each issue back and forth. There was an overall plan with the story broken down over those three issues.
Now you might argue that what you mean by "DC Teela" is the blonde Teela we encountered in the mini comics (as they were largely produced by DC). However, people on this board refer to that Teela as either "mini comics Teela" or "blonde Teela." When people say "DC Teela" they generally mean "Barbarian/Bikini Teela" as she appeared in that DC comic where the publisher's name was blatantly plastered on the front cover.
