    Oh yeah I definitely agree, its a weird thing to say.

    It gets even funnier since I think PG's physique is a bit toned down now. I don't think she currently is as "big" as she used to be.

    No, she isn't. Or so it seems to me too.

    Yeah Paige is most certainly not nearly as buff as Karen.

How that succeeds where even Superman points out to her that her trying to avoid attention is nearly impossible...well, comics. Maybe a wizard did it.

    But bless the writers for having her try to have a secret ID. It's kind of cute that she thinks she can be unrecognized in her civilian ID. And a nice informative character bit.
    I could see using the same logic as Mr. Fantastic uses in Fantastic Four sometimes. Being the smartest guy in the room is not a substitute for actually knowing the source material.

    Which makes me wonder.... how technically skilled is Divine? Presumably she has the same natural intellect right?

    It really was the Post Crisis era, no? For the big Power Girl and the cartoonishly large chesticles. I think Bart Sears is largely the culprit for that--that being the She-Hulk-like obvious musculature and height. Going through pre-Crisis art, she was rendered most often as shorter than folks like Robin and fairly petite. So if they are doing away with Post Crisis Kara--and it seems they very much are--then that her and Supergirl are rendered similarly in physique makes sense now.

    That'd be the Skybound imprint at Image.

    So I have been enjoying Isekai Manga or New World genre Japanese comics graphic novels, and realize that the House of El go Isekaied, so Kara came to Earth and now Ferembia, she got Isekaied twice. Paige came to Earth 2, now Earth Prime and Ferembia, so three time.

    Cool cover! I love how PG is about to smash SG in the head with that flail. Or her own horse. Or herself.
