    The times it has happened are few and far between. That goes for TV adaptations, too.

I think there is a chance for her to be in the series because she is the only love interest his character had and they were apparently childhood friends or something in that Earth 2 series? Been a while since I read it.



    Isn't the John Cena Peacekeeper series also going to HBO Max? I think it is less about PoC characters/actors and more that WB wants to flood the HBO Max platform with as much content as possible to get more subscribers on it, and content with PoC leads are the trendy thing right now. Like the Batgirl movie was going to be on HBO Max before they even announced who they were looking at to cast.
    Hey, WB, Power Girl would be perfect for an HBO Max miniseries or something. Content is content, and if they need more, PG would be easy to do right.

    Can you even do that in the comics? Like the ring just latches onto you and takes you to Oa immediately, I don't think the Corps. has ever treated it like something you could say no too .

    Probably, I hear the job has a rotten dental plan and no vision coverage. Those rings of power aren't all they're cracked up to be...

    Because it wasn’t just on them and they’re also the guys who made the Arrowverse which love or hate, is the only shared live action universe that’s been successfully pulled off

    I sometimes wonder how much people would love the Arrowverse if the MCU didn't exist.

    The Arrowverse kicked off the modern age of comic book TV.

    I think people would still probably complain about the same writing issues although the fact that they were able to maintain as many cross-TV crossovers and events for several years is pretty impressive in my opinion.

    At least twice as much. I'm a superhero groupie. I watched Wonder Woman and the Hulk when they were the only things on. I already watched the hell out of the Arrowverse, and would have watched it even more if there were no MCU.

    Maybe gotten around to catching up on the latest seasons of the Flash, Black Lightning and Legends of Tomorrow, if there were no Wandavision, Falcon & Winter Soldier and Loki competing for my limited attention. Definitely rewatched some Arrow (which has been my favorite Arrowverse show so far, pre-Superman & Lois), during the time period I spent devouring Daredevil, etc.
