So. Comicbook Resources recently interviewed Eric Wallace, and unsurprisingly, Peege is one of the questions that came up.

And because DC apparently has a strict no-spoilers rule in place (though admittedly they themselves aren't too good about that), Wallace could only reveal so much, but it's enough to get my Spidey senses tingling.



CBR: We've also got Karen Starr AKA Power Girl involved in these issues, though so far we've only seen her operating sans superhuman abilities. Is Power Girl de-powered? Is she going to continue to be a supporting character for Michael Holt rather than a superhero ally for Mr. Terrific?

EW: Sorry, but because of the no spoilers policy, I can't exactly say what's in store for Karen Starr. But I can say this: Karen's relationship with Michael Holt has already begun to sour, and there's a reason for this, one that is the beginning of something much bigger in both their worlds. This conflict will eventually lead to a major revelation about one of the biggest mysteries in Mister Terrific's life. So stay tuned.

Hmmmm....I suppose this is good enough (I guess) to give me hope. But damn this doesn't change the fact that my Peege withdrawal in DCnU is killing me, and even moreso with her *implied* lady friend running solo in Italy at the moment. :(

So in an attempt to stay patient for the big reveal, how about a trip inside Power Girl's mind for a legality scan, yeah?

....and then PG will be back, with news of that Earth 2 actually being the pre-Flashpoint DCU, and then a silly event will happen, Booster wtih Rip Hunter will fix things up so we'll end up back on the post-Crisis "normal" universe back , Blue Beetle fixed back, Steph!Batgirl and Cass!Black Bat back, but books like Animal Man or Swamp thing still on-going unaffected.

...

Anyway, that's what I would do things if it was up to me :P

I'm all for it if you throw in still-breathing Lian Harper and Ryan Choi (the Chinese one, not the Korean-American).

Alright!
Now, let's conquer DC ourselves and make some editorial changes ASAP!

The Mister Terrific comic has been one of the biggest disappointments of the new52 for me. Many of the comics are 'more of the same' and that's fine. Some are exceptional (Hi, Flash!), some are fun and some are successfully doing what they were designed to do. I wasn't in the audience for some of the comics, by design, so I don't mind.

But I like the character...or rather, I DID. The new52 Mister Terrific appeals to me not at all and his title seems...I dunno. I just had hoped for something much more fun, much more unique than what we've gotten.

I know the feeling. Mr. Terrific despite being a "new" character (Michael Holt version) has always fit in best in the JSA milieu. The current version is just like DC wanted its own Tony Stark.

Maybe its just Wallace (remember how he wrote the Marvel Family with Osirisboy-Prime and Billy Batson holding a water hose on a villain as his final moment in pre-reboot continuity) but I wouldn't like it if his version of "Karen Starr" turns out to be the Earth-2 Power Girl. Based on what little we've seen she seems to be just a Karen Starr in name only (she doesn't even look much like Peege except for being big and blonde) and not the Power Girl of old complete with attitude (and someone who certainly did not have to play second fiddle/playing supporting player to any man - even Mr. Terrific).

I'd say its weird for DC to treat a character like this who not that long ago was STARRING in three different series for them (JSA, JSA All-Stars, and her own solo title) as just a spare part in someone's else story (and that someone else a character who have never been as successful as Peege to date) but they did the same weird treatment to Cassandra Cain (carried her own solo title for 6 years successfully, then canceled and then boom she's downgraded to a B-list villain for Robin in HIS title).
