@WW-Fan:
When Geoff Johns was writing PG she was a strong character with a sense of humour and totally believeable as the leader of the JSA.Then came the Palmiotti/Connor run which did more harm than good and at least now we have Winick/Basri giving the character the respect she deserves. There is so much to explore in the characters background but until somebody does that I think all you'll get are stupid comments about breasts.

Power Girl is awesome, period. Thread closed and proven.

I have to admit, I was never a fan of Power Girl. She seemed like an older, bitchier version of Supergirl, who I also didn't like. Especially based on her recent series, though, I've come to like her. In addition to being really powerful, she's smart and has an interesting personality.

I have a deep respect for her, after learning about her a couple of years ago. She's up there with some of my favorite comic characters. 

I'm currently in the planning stages of an online dio-fanfic based on a few things, and she is going to be a part of it. How? I'm turning Galatea from JLU into the DCAU's PG. Here's how, making you the first people to see an inch of my fanfic-verse: 
Minutes after she got electrocuted by Supergirl in the episode "Panic in the Sky", Kara hears a faint heartbeat from Galatea's charred body, and to much of her surprise, flies her to the medical ward on the watchtower. There, 'Tea' is treated and nursed back to health for a few months, where during that time, is shown by Superman and the others what Camus REALLY engineered her for (filling in on the whole 'Brainiac-Luthor' thing). She decides to atone for her actions, and help fill in the void after Supergirl decides to stay in the future ("Far From Home"). With help from Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain Atom, and the Question, she manages to set up a new identity for herself as Karen Starr, computer programmer and CEO of fledgling software company Starrware. She also designs a new costume for herself (based on her comics costume), and unveils herself as new League Member Power Girl, even setting herself up a backstory of being the Supergirl counterpart of a long-dead parallel earth. Superman also reccomends her to join the JSA to help with her "people skills".

I respect Power Girl's rack... otherwise she would be just be Supergirl in another costume without the Massive rack... :P

#15 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

the girl has my respect since i first found out about her and what she went threw, she is an amazing character, and i'm glad to see in her new series and recently in the JSA theri showing her as an intellectual person and not just as a chick with the powers of superman with an awesome rack

my fav heroine.  shes funny and her current series is quite decent
#17 Edited by sky-pirate (111 posts) - - Show Bio

I think she's a great character, who doesn't really get the respect/cred, she deserves. She's an alien woman, who came to earth with nothing and built up her own corporation (she didn't have Superman's advantage, of coming here, as a child and being raised by humans), through hard work. Rather then basing her identity, on that of a man, she picked her own costume and codename. And let's face it, unlike most other heroines in both DC and Marvel, she has to put up with being objectified and being sexually harassed, by other characters (something I know, is the situation, for hundreds of real women)... Seriously, when was the last time, that WW or Supergirl had to put up with sexualized comments about their bodies? 
 
Power Girl is also an incredibly strong woman. Just think about it: First she lost Krypton as a child, then she lost her adopted world (and one virtual reality, between them), her family and her very identity. She was told a new background and given a new family, which she then lost and was told, it was all a lie. Then her real family came back, along with her memories of the world, she'd lost. And then she lost her family again, like five minutes later. She's had everything taken away from her, time and time again. Yet, she always gets back on her feet.

One of the best written, beautifully drawn comics in DC (love both Palmiotti-Conner-Gray & Winick-Basri runs)

I respect this character because of how she stands up for her friends, no matter how they act. She always looks for the good inside of everyone, which is really great.

Gray and Palmiotti's run on her was a pretty good read though I think her power was downplayed seeing as how I think she's supposed to be like Superman's level of power.

I got no problems with downplaying powers, a too easy fight would be uninteresting to read
But her recent fight with Crash is rather one-sided, all she needs to do is hold him off for a few hours, and she doesn't look winded at all

I know. I enjoyed their run on her. There were some funny moments, it was nice to see how she helped people and all, as well as other things. I was just kind of annoyed with how that explosion in the park was able to knock her out and Ultra-Humanite being strong enough to knee her and make her bleed and beat her into unconsciousness. Then again, I'm not a huge expert on the Ultra-Humanite so if he's shown in the past that he's a being with Superman's level of power, I could overlook it. I know there were also some good showings like stopping that ship the size of a small city from crashing into Manhattan as well as others, but overall I just feel that for someone who I've thought of as being Superman's level her power was downplayed. Still, it didn't take away a lot from the overall story.

@MrDirector786: Ultra-Humanite's body is supposed to be a giant albino ape, dunno if it has enhanced strength or something like that

 As a matter of funny fact i like Power Girl not because of her... You know what, but because of her peersonality

#34 Posted by DEGRAAF (7887 posts) - - Show Bio

gotta admit, i havent read any of her solo comic, but i feel like they portrayed her the best in the beginning of JSA All Stars when she was fighting for control of the team with Magog. I liked her more serious, militaristic attitude.
#35 Edited by WW-Fan (2738 posts) - - Show Bio

she has the one of the best personality in DC comics :)

Just watched an episode, of That 70's Show, where Kelso makes the statement "the bigger the breasts, the smaller the brain!" And it got me thinking, that Power Girl's really part of a suppressed minority: Large breasted women. They're mocked in the media, portrayed as bimbos. People belittle them, on the streets and look down upon them. People stare at them, trying to find some evidence that their breasts are fake. I even saw a study, a few years back, that told that large breasted women are more likely to commit suicide (which, in my opinion, is clearly brought on, by how badly society threats these women).

Your OP could've been a better image for a respect thread, it might bring certian comments to mind.

Ironically, in an issue of the new Power Girl series, Ultra Humanite mocked her by telling her that her brain is the least used part of her body.

Power Girl vs Thundra


Power Girl is cool and hot (how do ya like that oxymoron?)!  
I like Thundra a lot more actually, but what better way to say I think she's bad-ass than to show her winning against my favorite female character.

Coming late to this thread, I have to say she doesn't get the respect she deserves.  She's the JSA, (All-Stars or regular flavor)!  She was one of two heroes the entire Trinity chose unanimously to join the JLA in Meltzer's reboot, (Nightwing was the other one---though neither wound up on the team).  She was the old school JSA's self-described greatest student.  In addition to all the other things said about her above.  And of course, she's DC's ultimate survivor among the heroes.
 
Sadly, I don't think she'll ever get her props until a big name writer takes her under his or her wing.

@RedRyan:
Hang on a sec, look at it this way: the Palmiotti/Conner run on her title is basically DC's answer to Marvel's "The Sensational She-Hulk". Winick/Basiri's run is more like the 2006 volume 2 of "Ms. Marvel".
#45 Posted by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

Her and wonder woman. I love their "Yeah I'm a woman, what of it!?" attitude.

 Sounds reasonable.  I think though that she needs her own version of the Morrison JLA to really get her props.  Fighting big name threats and winning, and a more serious manner.  Not that Winick isn't doing a good job so far; he is IMO.  Just that she needs to up her game as far as being a go-to character when facing the biggest DCU threats.

I respect Power Girl just fine. She's her own character that can hold her own with most of DC's biggest and baddest. 
 
P.S. - If you want to start a respect thread for her, the first picture you put up probably shouldn't be one of her opening the front of her shirt showing her cleavage even more than the suit already does. Not complaining, she hot, just saying.
