    Do we know if there are any Power Girl developments coming for 2019? Johns is supposedly bringing back the JSA. Wonder if this will affect her in 2019.

    I do like Power Girl best when she's a member of the JSA on the main Earth, but right now she's still stuck between dimensions as far as we know. I'm not sure we'll see her for a while, but what makes it worse is that DC isn't really even doing much with Tanya, so the change feels like a wash now.

    Nevertheless, I'm hopeful some news will come down the pipeline when the JSA information does.

    I would love to see PG in something for 2019!

    I am always hoping that Power Girl might appear in the TV Supergirl show, but I want Karen as her comic self, complete with white costume, bigger musculature and short blonde hair. But not sure if they have any plans to go this route.

    100% agreement here. Besides her appearances in HQ which are kind of inofficial I guess there was nothing but that reference in an Deathstroke annual I head about. *sigh* I don't follow DS; was there anything more after that at some point?

    I would love a new solo series for her. Loved the post final crisis series she had (even the ones with the crappy art about half way in :P).

    I would also love to see a accurate live adaption in either Arrowverse or DCEU but I fear they would simply mess her up.

    What's really creepy is that he would have looked exactly like her cousin when he was younger. Certainly she would have seen pictures of him by then. Genetically, he would also be close enough to be HER cousin as well. Maybe not first cousins but still pretty close. The seventies were weird.

    I first saw Power Girl in Superman Batman Public Enemies as one of the superheroes charged by Luthor to arrest Superman and Batman, but then alongside Katana, she betrayed Luthor and help them.

    I didn't think much of her beyond that. Over the years I heard about her reputation. Her confusing origin, her boob window reputation, her boobs reputation, and loads of sexy art, official and non official. I found out that she's supposed to be the original Supergirl transferred to different earth, and kinda tuned out ^^

    I've read a few pages that people post online, but I still don't know about her beyond that. I don't really know her personality. I don't know if I should read her classic Supergirl. Like does that even matter when she's an adult now, in different earth, and the classic Supergirl origin has been adapted for the current Supergirl?

    Where is she now? Last I saw her New 52 version was in Earth 2, but there's also a classic Power Girl cameo in the background of Rebirth comics.

    There is not much solo material I know of from her but I really loved reading Power Trip (https://www.amazon.com/Power-Girl-Tr...l+Power+Trip); first 12 issues of her run + some others, plays after Final Crisis and before Flashpoint/N52.

    She is NOT Supergirl. Yes, she is also Kara, but with a bit more sass and cynicism.

    Last Rebirth/post Rebirth appearances of her where several cameos in Harley Quinn issues (which might play on another earth or in another time) and one in an Deathstoke issue which claims shes lost between worlds/universes which might be the official status.

    Did E2 Supes and Lois where not Karas/PGs adopted parents?

    According to the Superman encyclopedia they were. Now, if that had been established by the time that particular story had ran, I don't know. Keep in mind, that story was written early on in her existence so how much of her backstory had been established by then is unclear. All we know is that Superman kept her in hiding until her first appearance.
