Power Girl's Secret Identity new look. Yay or Nay? Issue 23

#1 Posted by ZoddGuts (75 posts) - - Show Bio
In Issue 23. Kara/Karen got a new maker over. Going from blond to red head for her secret identity. So what to do think?   Not sure if she dyed her hair or is she wearing a wig? Doesn't look like a wig and her eyebrows are dye as well. Wonder if she becomes Power Girl she's gotta to to the beauty parlor to dye her hair blond again. 

Anyways about her co-workers wondering about her new due/look. She could simply say that she dyed her hair to the original color ("red") she was born with so that when she goes public about her company ideals, she would look genuine rather than coming out as "fake" with her "dyed" blond hair. That way she would better to appeal to the crowd with her "true" genuine look. Making her easier to trust with.




Her previous look:

I liked the old one. She looks like Oracle on steroids now.

Yeah she does look like Oracle when I first saw it. Interesting enough isn't she going to get some sort of love interest in issue 25? That person likely being Dick Grayson, who's had a thing for red heads...

Nay on the new look. 

She looked far better the old way.

I'd rather she had gone brunnette (we REALLY have so few brown-haired superheroines), and I do believe the eyebrow color can be removed easily.  She probably carries around some sort of solution to simply brush it off.

Likely, they made her a red head, because Lois Lane wore a red wig, when she was (the original) Power Girl, in Superman #125.

Not particularly in this pic. Maybe with a different art style, it will look better.

Okay, why the comparison to Oracle? The glasses are different, and she does not look THAT bulky. Think that Marvel comics villainess, Titania (one of She-Hulk's foes), with a little more brainpower.

No, No, No, NO!!!!

 

Can some please explain to me why her hair is red? Does she wear a wig or did she dye it?

#19 Posted by jrock85 (2850 posts) - - Show Bio

Nay.

#20 Posted by achilles100 (243 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't particularly think it's flattering, but then that's the point.  Still, I'd prefer to see a different artist render that look.  In fact, I'm getting a bit tired of Basri on this title; and think a different artist would be a nice change, and if you got a name artist, it might be a nice boost to the title.

My problem with it is that now she looks too much like Dr. Ophelia Day, her arch-enemy in the business world.

@GundamHeavyarms:
That's what I've been telling everybody!!!

 

And with this look, she also kind of reminds me of Uma Thurman in "My Super Ex-Girlfriend".

And here's where I admit that I still prefer Connor's depiction of PG.  And in fact a number of others.  And kind of still wish that Basri would complete his run and leave with someone else higher profile replacing him.  Someone who can draw a good, sexy, and preferably non-stylized PG.

She should stick with being a blonde.
#30 Posted by Munsu (164 posts) - - Show Bio

Lol, yeah, my first thought after seeing the new look was that Dick Grayson would love the change.

I get why she needed to change her appearance, since realistically it would be so easy to identify her as Power Girl because of her figure, but if Superman can just wear some glasses and no one can identify him then that should be all that Power Girl needs as well. Hopefully her new civilian look grows on me.

She really does look like Dr. Day and Oracle, though.

Nay, it looks like a copy of Clark.

Well, yeah, it's her Clark Kent, the lady who can't possibly be the beautiful, glamorous heroine Power Girl...

NAY !

 Her old look was way better ! She really looks like barbra on steroids now O.o

#36 Posted by TheBatman (27 posts) - - Show Bio


LAME!!!

Why the new look anyway?

I mean, Clark wears his glasses and does his hair a little and peeps don't say "WHOA! IT'S SUPERMAN!" XP

This new image is, well, in my mind, totally unnecessary! =P

Karen Starr, is a much more public figure, than Clark Kent. She's the CEO of a multimilliondollar corporation. She's a rich woman living in NYC, so she probably get invited to charitabal parties (she most certainly appears at fondraisers, for the own foundation), where photographers take pictures for the society pages. It's possible, that a womens magazine, would wanna interview her as a woman, who founded and built up her own corporation. There'd be an unknown number of photos taken off her every year, that makes it into various newspapers and magazines, etc. that would reach the public. And eventually, someone could recognize her as Power Girl.

Clark Kent's a reporter at a newspaper. Meaning, the worst thing he'd have to worry about, is the paper posting a photo of him, next to an article of his (and who'd pay much attention to that?)

She's just getting ready for her date with Dick Grayson in the next two issues. :P

@katanalauncher:
Whoa, I wouldn't go THAT far. Aside from my previous comparisons (Titania with more brains, Uma Thurman in "My Super Ex-Girlfriend"), now that I think about it, she looks like a redheaded, longer-haired bodybuilder version of Tina Fey (who I think would make a good voice for her, among others).

I like Power Girl, but this is a huge NAY for me.

I disagree.  I'm warming up to Basri's artwork.  I like his rendition of PG and I also happen to like her secret identity disguise too. 
#45 Posted by lorex (958 posts) - - Show Bio

I think most people prefer has as a blond, thats what makes the disguise work. Also I do not think a woman with PG's physique looks anything like Barbara Gordon
aside from the red hair.

What a disappointment. Aren't there enough long hair'd redheads out there already? Give PG her short hair back, she looked so much better with it. Nevermind how few heroes (at least the ones I know of) have short sexy hair. PG was my favourite of them all, guess I can't say that now.
