here is how DC can fix Power Girl

#1 Posted by sunhawk (550 posts) - - Show Bio

Power Girl meets Superman and Super Girl, they have the talk about cross dimensional relations and so forth. The supes give PG a gift of a new costume made from kryptonian cloth from their space pods. PG can now be back in a Conner era costume that won't battle damage easily.

as for her current personality defects, well they can start developing PG back into the smart confident funny Palmoitti, Gray PG as a result of her meeting with her cousins.

i agree with sunhawk.

Some fans who can write and draw should get together and make their own PG comics. Then there is no need to complain about what DC does to her.

Since we are regularly clamoring for a PG movie, ambitious fans could make those too. Probably better than what DC would make.

It would be nice if PG would start wearing clothes.

As for her personality, I see that she is extremely flirtatious...and perhaps a bit crude now. Are there any other personality defects? I am not really a Power Girl fan, but I need to become more familiar with her character.

This.

@PsychoKnights: They did to her personality what you'd expect from her old costume (meaning: you'd think a woman with a boob window would be shallow and fairly sexualized), while also stripping her of her trademark costume and assetts that fans could look past.

@PsychoKnights: Not to give the stereotypical female superherores description, but confident comes to mind. In simple words: she was a boss chic who puts in work, handled stress, (which could describe any superheroine, I realize) and cracked jokes without directly being the punchline. Yeah she made flirty sexy jokes. The boob window was ironic. I liked her costume and humor because they were an issue to everyone but her characterization, like anti-anti-sexism. I've read very little Power Girl; maybe five or six issues from Palmiotti's 12, but I've read World's Finest, and by comparison she's cheesy and her inuendos are obvious and sophomoric.

Right - before , you had to look past the costume - and the boobs - to see the personality. Now, the costume isn't distracting and she is a tramp with no personality.

Originally PG's distinguishing traits were that she was feisty, moody and testy, though these were balanced with more positive traits which other characters shared. I her own title she mellowed into a more positive persona and kept her basic strong and independent character and played up the positive traits. What can I say? She's heroic. And sexy!

She's a comic character - they can just draw her boobs bigger. Artistic license allows it. The present WF artist (Perez) customarily draws boobs smaller. They were drawn bigger in Mr. Terrific.

I was pointing out the inconsistency of DCs attitude to PG's old costume with her new sexual conduct and the fact that the new costume, though fully covering, doesn't stay on. I wasn't complaining about PG being a slut in the DCnU or about her costume coming off. I'd like PG to have a costume like the one she and Terra wore when she visited Terra's home.

Didn't say that either. Many other female characters have big boobs. Red Sonja, Catwoman, Starfire, Bomb Queen (!), Black Canary, Deja Thoris, Ghost and others I forget for the moment. I have rarely bought their books, most of them never. You know why? BECAUSE THEIR BOOBS AREN'T REAL. Usually not even well drawn.

No, PG has other appeals than just her boobs; but her boobs are part of the package. They are two of the things which stop her from being a second Supergirl in a different costume. By themselves they would be just another pair of badly-drawn, comic-book character big boobs.

Face it, brother, you just don't get Power Girl.

I love powergirl and whats going on in new 52. But people just don't take powergirl seriously. be it before new 52 or after.

The biggest complaint is that she lost her boob window. Face it, brother, Powergirl is just boobylicious and people just don't take her seriously. Theres nothing Levitz could've written to really hurt her reputation or character. So theres nothing to fix.

I wasn't criticizing anyone for liking PG for her boobs. But that is a focal point of her character. Unlike any of the other characters you mentioned.

Also, I don't like PG for her boobs. I am in love with every single Superman character and I buy all their boobs. PG is my least favourite superman character, especially since writers screwed her over by making her atlantean.

But as of now, I love the fact that she was earth 2's supergirl

A (not the) focal point but not the most important feature of the character.

PG was always Earth 2's Supergirl.

Because I described PG's personality? I recommend you read some old back issues featuring PG, like 1990s JLE and JLI. Or further back to late 1970s JSA and Super Squad. Whatever, she's been in lots of other titles in the decades before she got her own title. Hopefully you will agree that it wasn't all about the boobs.

If I did say Power Girl was all about the boobs, I was out of line. I meant to say her image and reputation (for the most part) is all about the boobs. However, I do realize that she would not have had a successful series if that was all she had going for her.

Anyway, I was just thanking you for your brief description of her personality. Food for thought.

I prefer both Power Girl and Huntress to be rebooted on main earth like what was done post-coie when Huntress became Bertinelli and Power Girl also got a new non kryptonian origin. For new 52, just send the earth 2 Huntress and earth 2 Power Girl back to earth 2 so main earth's versions can come out. Even the Arrow tv show prefers the Bertinelli version which is more useful on main earth. For Power Girl's rebooted origin, I prefer her to be an earthling.
