@achilles100 An alt-Earth Dr. Fate is narrating.

There are a couple of alternate Supergirls later in that issue. Judging by her bust size, one may actually be a version of PG. (But then PG is an E2 version of SG anyway so whatever.) They both have S's on their chests and one is referred as Supergirl and the other as Zor-El (by two alternate Wonder Womans). Strangely both of these have some kind of ESP ability.

@kazuma_bushi Mine is the print copy, numbered #7 and dated Mar 15. It seems the online version is split up into smaller chapters which combine to make the print issues.

Alternate Earth versions of PG appear in Infinite Crisis (Fight For The Multiverse) #7.I haven't been following this title, so I don't know if she is in other issues.

I will admit, the new costume does look good. Probably one of the few things they've gotten right about PG in the nu 52. The "S" shield in the pics for this week's WE looks pretty good.

Pre-52 we wouldn't have been able to see it is an "S" on her chest.

If you mean because of the window, sure, though she also had the window nu 52. But she did sport the "S" pre-52 for a single issue, in a black costume as the leader of a dystopian future JLA.

The S replaces the window. I'm talking about what's underneath it.

No story and corny, stupid cartoon humor. Even worse than when Palmiotti and Connor did the PG series. Pathetic.

Well, I have two minds on that run. First is that they made her fun. Second is that they failed to make her relevant. They had no real direction, no long-term thoughts on the character. Or rather, they made it sound like they had in the pre-series interviews, but then departed from that indicated direction completely.

Name one thing which was fun about it, assuming the reader above age ten.

no one but marvel fanboys knew iron man b4 the movies? marvel vs capcom and black sabbath say hi.

@achilles100:

again, anyone whose played a marvel v capcom game(most 90's kids) or heard the song by black sabbath would disagree. iron man was no where near as unknown as gotg.

The Black Sabbath song was not written about the Marvel character. Just listen to the lyrics.

@powergirlfan:

while there are more factors into how successful a movie is, when trying to build a movie franchise you need a solid base. i don't doubt that with the right writers, casting, promotion that pg solo movie could succeed, but it shouldn't be an option until after wonder woman comes out.

A fit, hot, busty blonde in spandex and a cape with all the abilities of Superman has at least as much intrinsic appeal as Noah, Godzilla, 21 Jump St, Annie, Ninja Turtles and Lego.

My point was that film success is nothing necessarily to do with popularity with comic fans. Most people who saw films based on comic characters didn't even read comics.

I'm not eager for DC to make a PG film, because I don't think I'd like how they would do it. I don't even like how they currently write her in comics.
