    I don't understand this. She wasn't created as a semi-comic character and for most of her history wasn't considered as such.

    Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.

    I like srs-bizness PG don't get me wrong, but I find much of her modern appeal is because she is a fun character.

    Yeah Powergirl is way more interesting as a quesi funny character, with occasional boughts of seriousness. In fact she was kind of bland until they went the more light hearted route with her.

    Apologies if this was shown on here before, but I just noticed it--kinda cool redesign of Peej's classic costume:



    Here's the artist's deviantArt, if curious.

    I don't think it's been posted before. It's new to me at least. And kind of nice.

    True enough. It was only during the Giffen/Dematteis League books and her own series, especially the 12 issue Palmiotti/Gray run where she was overtly comical. Her original run in the Bronze Age in All-Star Comics and the modern JSA runs were all serious.

    And to my mind one of her best stories---even though it was more a Mr. Terrific story---JSA vs Kobra featured a dead serious PG.

    here's another one I thought was really cool looking



    dunno why DC didn't do a breast cancer awareness cover with PG, she practically screams it out
    and like X-23 she actually looks better in pink

    I remember reading a while back that a plan for Supergirl that DC shut down was a "Birds of Prey' like team book with Linda Danvers as Superwoman, the original Kara Zor-El as Supergirl (before they made the new Kara) and Power Girl. That would have been cool to see.

    Definitely in her list of must-read stories for a PG fan.

    Just noticed the cover to WF's #8 for sale on eBay.
    It looks like KM has decided to offer it up to fans.

    Well, they do make money that way. If I had the cash, I'd consider making a bid, as it is IMO the best showing of her current costume yet. Though I still wish they'd ditch it and go back to the classic number.
