Since it was announced by absence
that Power Girl
would be absent from the first 52 DC books in the 90s relaunch, I've been thinking a lot about how she could be included in the reboot. I'm at least glad that she isn't going to be in the new JLA
, as I've already got Ms. Marvel as a character who's gone from having her own quite good solo series to having to live on little cameos in the premier team book.
To that end, I've had a flick back through some of the Palmiotti/Gray/Conner series and re-read the first issue of the Winnick/Basri run. Power Girl is quite fortunate to have had two sets of creators present a consistent run on the book, doing the story that they want to tell and then leaving when they want. Compare that to the directionless creative mishmash that Supergirl's gone through since her title debuted and you could probably say that she's had one of her best runs.
Here's three pages of her revised origin from Power Girl #13( The origin )
I've also been scouring Project Rooftop
and Deviantart for other versions of Power Girl. As far as I can manage, I'm going to credit the original artist for everything.( Read more... )
I've also got some pictures that would make this post need a nudity advisory. If there's a demand for these, I'll post them at some point in the morning.
