    Just thought I'd post the cover to Justice League of America #10 (the final issue of the JLA/JSA crossover). Enjoy! :thumb

    I just don't get the PG thing. She's a relatively uninteresting character overall (unless you get a REALLY good writer).

    Or maybe her fans just like the boobs that seem to grow larger with each passing week...

    She's okay. Like you said, she just needs to get a really good writer behind her. Wait, that came out wrong...

    Oh, and also, I'd like to read at least one story where her Power Chest isn't mention. Yeah, we get it.

    I love PeeGee, but that cover doesn't really impress me. I'm just not a big Michael Turner fan. It's not his worst work to date, but it's still not that great.

    And my love for Power Girl stems pretty much exclusively from the first four issues of JSA Classified, which impressed me so much I became both a diehard Power Girl fan and a regular reader of DC (after years of Marvel zombieness). I just really like her mix of tough-as-nails exterior and deeply lonely interior. When written well, she's a really interesting and complex character. Unfortunately, when written badly (which has been her sad fate from pretty much CoIE through her return to the JSA; especially that stupid baby storyline in JLE), she's either a one-dimensional emasculating shrew or a walking set-up for big tit jokes.

    In any case, she's the only Kara from Krypton that the DCU needs, as far as I'm concerned. I fully support sending the anorexic angstfest that is Supergirl off into limbo and giving PG her own solo title.

    Most fans are all for the boobs. I however think she is an interesting character with a lot of potential. Johns showed this in JSA Classified and if he would explore her more in the regular series. She's from a parallel universe and has a lot to tell. I just hope they one day do.

    I just noticed something. PGs chest is too low. Look at the proportions. Technically the slope should start at her neck area where the gold strap comes across. but it's flat. Then, where the costume opens, then baloon out. Canary looks fine but PG is all off.

    Totally correct, but then I'm no fan of Turner's work to begin with so it comes as no big shock.

    what I find funny is it says, "Click for a lareger image" over her pic. Irony much? :p

    Bam! I love me some PG action, unfortunately her best stuff (for me anyway) was in the early Supergirl run... alas any neatness from that has been brushed under the carpet and long forgotton. FOR SHAME.

    She needs her own ongoing, the boobs scaled back and a new costume.

    As a Power Girl fan, I think the biggest problem the character has right now is that DC is wasting her potential. So much time was spent in the lead up to Infinite Crisis establishing a definitive origin for her, and she was a major player in IC itself. She was really being set up to finally become a major star. And then what happened next? She co-starred in a crap Supergirl arc, she was in an issue of 52, and the title she regularly appears in was shelved for several months so they could relaunch it. All that momentum coming out of IC was completely wasted. So frustrating...

    so, what, are we hypothesizing that, if superboy-prime punched reality, that PGs boobs can undo the damage? o_O

    I've heard the theory that the original multiverse still exists inside Kara's boobs.
