PG Is Mr. Terrific's GF?!?

#1 Posted by achilles100 (239 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, that's what a new podcast by Eric Wallace seems to suggest among other things. It also suggests that Karen has or soon will have superpowers---though no word is given on how she gets them, or if she already had them. And yes, Karen, not Power Girl, so they would seem to be one and the same person as they normally are.

About 29 minutes into it.

For those who care BTW, the Ryan Choi thing was editorially mandated.

@achilles100:  
 
here's my  theory 
 
Karen Starr starts off working for Mr. Terrific as his plucky, loyal assistant, (kinda like a Pepper Potts) and eventually grows an attraction to him, which will eventually become mutual, Then by some means, (probably by one of Terrific's experiments going wrong) she will gain Powergirl-esque powers

@The Stegman: I kinda like that theory. One of the big issues that I think PG faces is that she's simply an older version of Supegirl, which, at times, I believe hurts the characters, especially when trying to explain PG to other people and you eventually get the question, "So she's just another Supergirl?" I think giving her an origin seperat from Supergirl, while still possibly keeping the heart of the character, could help to make Power Girl stand out more on her own instead of simply being in Supergirl's shadow.

From what I understand from someone who's read it; Karen is still doing her Starrware thing. That person was disappointed with her role there.

God if that's what happens I'm going to write such an angry letter. Because this is what the industry needs, more super-girlfriends

She seems to be more in a 'friends with benefits' kinda situation with Mr. Terrific. At least she's not his assistant, she's more of his equal in the business world kinda thing.

She was so cool.., Now she's just some superhero's girlfriend... :(

Well, it seems more and more likely IMO that she's still Power Girl. The outfit she wore at the party for example---basically the color scheme of her Power Girl costume, only reversed. That she felt she had to tell Mr. Terrific why she was there, when it would have seemed to be the only logical reason...if she was just Karen Starr. And a couple of other things.

The term is F*ck b*ddy.

I'm just disappointed. I mean I am not surprised the author decided to hook the two up, we all saw it coming, but it is still disappointed when a character you like is written poorly. Oh well. At least her own ongoing was great. I'll just have to look back on those when I want to remember Power Girl.

I was a big fan of Mr. Terrific/Sasha Bordeaux pairing. So I wasn't thrilled to read this topic.

#17 Posted by achilles100 (239 posts) - - Show Bio

@Kairan1979: Looks like Sasha is one of the big losers in the reboot.

#18 Posted by ScorpioP (3 posts) - - Show Bio

Is her power gonna get nerfed big time as well or are those just rumors ? :/

Yes but what does it matter? Superman got owned by a train.

Lets be honest now folks,Mr T can contibute more to the DC universe than PG.

sounds dumb. I thought he was gonna be married or have a serious gf or something. I cant wait to see how they explain PG in this new DCU and then watch them destroy her character

#23 Posted by Darkmount1 (1266 posts) - - Show Bio

Nuts. I actually thought PG and Doctor Mid-Nite (Pieter Cross) would've made a good couple. I've still got the scenario of their blossoming romance and even a wedding in a "file" in my head. There'd even be a back-up strip done in the style of the Garfield comic strips featuring his owl, Charlie, and her cat.

We shouldn't rush to judgement because of one issue. In all likelihood, PG eventually will have a more prominent role in the new DCU.

As for her and Mr. Terrific as a couple? I'm all for it!

@jrock85:

cosigned it's good to see someone else not freaking out about this. and frankly this issue wasn't even that bad at least it beat O.M.A.C. Most of these people are just sore because PG's book was cut and while they have every right to be i think there anger is misplaced

Im enjoying the series so far and the sense of science and adventure. Ive read all of Justice Society and the Power Girl series and so far I dont think Mr Wallace has treated either character badly.
