Like I said, it's sad when the best appearances of the character so far have been in titles that aren't hers, SQ and SG.

I liked her Krypton-2 origin, complete with all the backstory in the JSA and the JLE/JLI/JLA, and well as the complete stuff with her own series.
As for appearance, the Connor stuff comes to mind, and the rest of her series wasn't bad either. There was a cover for either the last issue or the second to last of her own series that was pretty great. Plus, the look and artist she had in the two issues of Supergirl recently was pretty good.
Well, as far as I know, she's appeared in Worlds' Finest obviously, a couple of issues of Earth 2, two issues of Supergirl, and one issue of Suicide Squad, with another upcoming next month. This in addition to the issues of Superman/Batman upcoming that cross over with Worlds' Finest. This is a two month crossover, but they haven't mentioned how many issues in total there are, in other words it isn't clear to me yet if it's two issues each.
That's about it AFAIK.
I think the problem is the characterization, and the slow pace of the stories. Almost everyone who's read her Supergirl appearances calls them vastly superior to her depiction in Worlds' Finest. And her first appearance in Suicide Squad, (I'm obviously talking in this post about the DCnU), recalls her similar appearances prior to the reboot.
So Worlds' Finest is part of the problem. But I'm not so sure it's Levitz. After all, he was one of the main guys who helped solidify PG's character back in the All-Star Comics day. He's a guy who's produced recognized classics. And now, long after the start of this thread, we can look back and see that editorial meddling in this title, as well as others, was extreme. Extreme enough to drive both Perez and Maguire away. So perhaps Levitz isn't acting with anything near the freedom we all assume. He is after all under the direction of editorial, the same as most of the others. I think another problem is that she's only in the one title on a monthly basis, while she's always before been a team character, whether or not she had a solo title. And she's not integrated into the wider DCnU. Some of that will change with the four issue crossover with Superman/Batman, but still, she needs to be in one of the Justice Leagues, preferably the main one.
I can't imagine that will persist. Levitz might want to do an arc with it to show how she responds, but beyond that there's not much point.
We have seen a powerless PG before, on occasion, but it really didn't contribute much.
No, neither sounds right. She's at least 6' judging from her own series, and other appearances like WW, though it's harder to tell now in WF. And she's way less than either of those weights. My guess is a max of around 145. Probably less if you go by the recent SG issues or WF.
That "official" height and weight thing is old...very old. It dates back to before her retcon back to Krypton. Since then, and in fact before then for the most part since COIE, barring things like Ross's depictions and those who followed his style, she's been quite tall. Look in her own series and she's taller than almost everyone around, men included. As tall or taller than Dick Grayson for example.
My own personal preference is no, not overtly muscular like the Ross stuff. Or worse, that horrid early BOP appearance, (the origin story of her feud with Oracle), where she looked like she lived on steroids.
I prefer the Connor look, or Basri, or the look she sported in the recent Supergirl appearances.
It's not a huge thing for me, but I also think the blonde hair works best with her costume colors. Even the black costume featured in the post above.
