    Beyond which as I said, the specific depiction referred to there was first done by Alex Ross, and then mostly by him and a couple of JSA artists who followed him, but only that. I'd say about 10% of...

    Which is why I'd cast the best actress I could find, rather than someone who hits a physical checklist. Which would be problematic because the Ross style is only one style that PG was depicted in;...

    First off, in a Power Girl movie/TV show you don't have to and shouldn't reference Supergirl at all. Though PG had her genesis in being the Earth 2 version of SG, that's about all she has in common...

    From a movie point of view, whether or not you use the concept of Earth 2, PG doesn't have to depend on any other character, and certainly not SG. You need not mention SG, though perhaps at least an...

    We're even farther from the Old West, yet we still like cowboy movies and western TV. And ditto other, even further events. In fact, there are still actual war stories from WWII that haven't AFAIK...

    Oh hell. That's gutting. IMO, he's still the legitimate all-time HR king. And certainly in the top 5 greatest players of all time. At least he lived a good long time.

    Ah, well, it's in my "give it a watch for a few to see if it's good" list, along with Stargirl, which is on my must watch list.

    I will be happy if they don't have problems with that "writing" part in their writer's room. I've really yet to see them get that bit right consistently on any of the CW shows, save Stargirl, and...

    Naw, all he needs is to watch his old bits on Supergirl, and he'll just have to get drunk regardless, while hoping better days are ahead.:p

    Absolutely not IMO. Wonder Woman has plenty of titles; the JSA characters currently have none, and will possibly eventually only have one, JSA, so any additional title like All-Star, should go with...
