    Assuming there's a place for Supergirl in 5G, although I doubt DC will just rest on the IP.
    She's eight issues short - she wouldn't have reached 50 before 5G starts anyway.

    There's two Power Girls, remember. Karen, the classic one, and Tanya, the teen legacy hero from New 52 Teen Titans second series and Deathstroke Defiance. Kara would be aged somewhere between the two.

    Supergirl needs to be featured more in team books. Her recent solos have been poor or okay, but derailed by events.

    Poor Kara, her book is getting canceled again. I'm sure she'll get a relaunch in no time though.

    Be nice if they kept the numbering. When the Steve Orlando series was cancelled at issue 20 everyone thought that was the end of the comic book, but when it started up again with Marc Andreyko, they just numbered that
    one 21 and went on from there.

    It would be but a new #1 under the 5G era might be more appealing to them.

    I feel like she needs an ongoing where as odd as this may sound Superman just needs to leave her alone. I honestly think that where Superman handles things on a global and maybe even universal scale with United Planets that Kara needs an ongoing where she can be on a more communal/local level. Set her in a city of her own where she can grow as her own character for a while.

    Either that or set her up on Zoe’s new Krypton type planet he’s been building.

    I'd put Kara in a team book, where she could do her own thing and play off other characters.

    Kara's book after it was brought back was completely mishandled. She did not get any stories for herself. Instead, all of her stories were based on other events that were happening in the DC Universe at the same time like Bendis' Superman and the Year of the Villain event.

    A book about Kara as she is has and can work as long as DC makes the book about Kara.

    Being local is a massive waste of Kara's powers, in my opinion. It just clashes with her entire existence. She's the Girl of Steel, and she's playing Spider-Man? I dunno about that.

    Given the "United Planets"/President Superman element, I think it makes to split the two Kryptonians into a global external threats (and wider universe) focused elder statesman Kal-El and the global internal and national-level (usually American, but not always) threats for Kara. But YMMV.

    Yeah I guess that did make her sound to much like Spider-man. I kind of just wanted to mean she should get her own city that she deals with on her own. I think maybe Shamrock Holmes above me had the better idea though.

    I wonder if they're going to give her another redesign

    Seconded.

    I tried to get into the current run after being away from comics for a bit, but it did seem that the book was repeatedly tied into some larger DC event I wasn't interested in.

    If Superman is Generation 2, Kara must be Generation 3 or 4 - she needs to be older than Jon. I would expect her to be aged up. Maybe something similar to the TV show, with pants?
