    Maybe they didn't want Power Girl getting fatally poisoned every time she was near a residential neighborhood. All that lead in the paint.

    That's more or less the origin of DCAU Supergirl.

    Edit: Disregard, I can't read.

    The Daxamite thing is actually a good idea, definitely could've worked.

    There were several half-hearted attempts to tie her into Aquaman's world at the time, but that never worked out. Although at the time, I was all for it.

    Even at the time of trying to tie her into Atlantis and Arion, I wondered why they just didn't make her a Daxamite, although I guess that could have taken away from her being the nearly last of her kind. I dont have a problem with them going the same way they went with her Pre-Flashpoint...the only survivor or her dimension and much prefer it to the New52 origin they have left her with. Power Girl should NEVER be just another Supergirl.

    I know they made a Supergirl analog by the name of Andromeda who was a Daxamite, and I think, a cousin of Mon-El. But her size and bulk were more on the order of Power Girl. I heard a rumour at that time that Andromeda was a grown up Power Girl who had amnesia.

    I loved her in the legion and wouldn't have minded had they gone that route.

    I kind of wonder if when if they're ever going get back to her situation in rebirth is. They never followed up on that thing in deathstroke where she was saw trapped somewhere inbetween dimensions. Then next they just had her show up in Harley Quinn which is kind of only soft continuity at best and she hasn't been seen outside there except that HiC cover.

    I've kind of gotten the impression that she and all JSA characters are on hold due to Doomsday Clock. Once the dust settles there and we get a JSA back of some sorts they will work her out.

    They don't seem to follow up on a a lot of stuff. Jay Garrick has been stuck in limbo for, what, two years now? I don't think the Harley Quinn book is supposed to be canon. She's a prisoner of the SS in their book but roaming around free in her own?
