Thanks for the ending. Since DC isn't giving us one, I'll take what I can get.
I'll miss Kara and Atlee. I imagine the JSA, Huntress and Steph followed them there.
Aw, that's a nice ending Jabare.
Makes me wonder if Judd will say goodbye to us. Or Sturges will get PG to say bye to us in august (aw, I made me sad)
No hugs, only RAGE
If we don't see her in Sept, I still have hope they tell the story of how she makes it into the new DCU from another reality.
STILL no news? OMG, WTF?
I really do wish Kara would visit the new Earth 2 before the reboot/relaunch/52 book express runs over fandom in the fall. If she was there when reality is reset, maybe she'll be merged with the Kara of that reality and get an even bigger boob window!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to crying myself to sleep while re-reading Power Girl back issues and the Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia.
Thus do I write the first chapter of my new scripture. And the first verse is "Let it all burn."
I would honestly rather have Power Girl than Supergirl any day of the week, if a choice had to be made. There are enough blonde teenage girls in ANY DCU at any given time, Power Girl is much, much more in so many ways.
I've tried to get this out in the other thread but I get angry replies. How is Power Girl more? What is Power Girl's central story? Why do we need an older Supergirl? Why should we get rid of the original teen blonde DC super-heroine because of others? What makes PG valuable? What makes SG unnecessary?
Why replace a merchansing success across various media with a character that sells fewer comic books and nothing else? It doesn't make sense.
Why do we need an older Supergirl? I don't know, why do we need any more strong and mature female characters?
And between their recent titles, Power Girl's has been far better written.
Honestly, though, I don't think they should do away with either. Here's a simple idea for including her in the revamped DCU without having her come from an alternate universe or be confusing to explain in terms of just how many survivors there are from Krypton:
Notice that they're folding at least some Wildstorm characters into the DCU, including Apollo. Now, Apollo's original origin was that he was artificially granted solar-powered abilities very, very similar to Superman's - even his solar blasts were basically like heat vision at the beginning, doing larger bursts from his whole body was a later development. We're never told exactly where that tech came from, although Planetary had a Kal-el expy killed on arrival who could have been studied to develop it; in the DCU, it makes sense that it would have come from study of Superman's tissues, most likely by somebody working for Lex (yes, this basically makes Apollo Solar Man, just a modified regular Joe rather than a clone).
There's no reason that a similar process to the one that empowered Apollo couldn't have been used on a previously normal human, corporate CEO and technologist Karen Starr. The difference between her and Supergirl then would be not just one of maturity, but also the factors that she's native to Earth and its culture and had the experience of running around as a regular human before gaining Superman-level powers.
As to your question why we need an older Supergirl, why not also ask why we need an older Superboy, or a younger Superman, or a female Superman?
They're so different in personality and appearance they might as well just be sisters. In a weird multiversal way, they are. In the history of written fiction, has anyone ever argued against the existence of sisterly relationships?
If anything I would like to see them explore the 2 of them together instead of just never seeing them in the same book assuming they're redundancies.
