Power Girl's origin will be based on a panel back in a Superman comic back in the 60's and it'll involve some 5th rate loser villian that hasn't been used for years. I may like his writing, but it's distinct.

Frankly,.. I kinda wish they'd stuck with the Kryptonian Version.

"gemworld?"

As in the toys,.. with the barbie clone who was Amest - The purple rocks?

You know... All I can wonder is... at what point in her history did everyone just agree "You know what, her gimmick is going to be her HUGE chest zeppelins!"

And on that day, the comic gods nodded in approval.

The one with the wrecked car was drawn by a person named "MAUS"

I found most of my powergirl stuff on a websight called powergirl.com.

In All-Star Comics #58 that decision was made
I also think they should just stick with the Kryptonian origin. Everything else feels like B.S.

Sothat would make her a leftover from pre-Crisis Earth-2? So what? That's what she is. At least that way they'd throw pre-Crisis fans a bone.

But that'll never happen.

Here's what I was told on another forum by a guy who seemed to know what he was talking about...

Quote:
Wally Wood was PG's original artist, back in the mid-70s when he was picking up a regular paycheck from DC for doing comics like the short revival of All-Star. For his own amusement, every time he drew Power Girl he made her breasts larger, waiting for the day an editor would tell him to stop, but they never did. (Whether it's because they liked the art or just weren't paying attention is a matter of conjecture.) He was pretty unhappy personally (and sick, IIRC) at the time, and wound up committing suicide in 1981. Ever since, the other artists at DC have carried on the tradition of making her the bustiest heroine in mainstream comics. Just your daily comics trivia factoid.dw

On a serious note I thought Power Girl was related to Superman well I mean pre-crisis Power Girl from earth 2 anyway. I mean thats who they wrote the story for a while.

I promised myself that with these sort of threads I would stop at twenty pictures total posted if there was not much contribution from others.

Nah, she's super-strong. And, if that picture is any indication, super-perky.

The best part is whenever someone in the comics makes a remark, and she gets all offended/it goes completely over her head.

She wears a costume on which, at the spot where every other hero says "Here is where I will place the symbol that will forever define and identify me to the public at large," she has a big ol' titty-window, and then she's like, "what? You mean people are noticing my boobies? Preposterous!"

There's noticing, there's staring and then there's ogling. I think that PG is subject to the latter two more than anything and it's why she reacts the way she does.
