    Power Girl #12 by Leah Williams and Travis Moore
    Synopsis:
    Axel's betrayal! After a disastrous first date, Power Girl's suitor's true colors are
    revealed. Can a high-flying fantasy fix things between the two?
    Or will they throw Axel out faster than Streaky's sandbox?

    This book sure seems to delve into fantasy worlds pretty frequently of late.
    “Look, you can’t put the Superman #77s with the #200s. They haven’t even discovered Red Kryptonite yet. And you can’t put the #98s with the #300s, Lori Lemaris hasn’t even been introduced.” — Sam

    Streaky's sandbox? This is the first time I've heard a litter box called that, but it's in the dictionary, so I guess it must be normal.

    I also wonder what percentage of this book's readers are actually just buying it for the covers.

    So random. I wonder if it will be the same fantasy world.

    That Kenner Super Powers figure cover looks ripped straight from the Kerry Gammil series cover era.


    The suggestion of Sydney Sweeney as Power Girl tracks with my concept of Jeri Ryan as Power Woman. I can see them playing Kara/Karen at different ages.

    Mindful of that question, this page from the SUPERGIRL thread feels more like Power Girl Kara rather than Supergirl Kara

    Still stings reading that. The man was a prolific writer and his earlier career offerings were reliably good.

    Not odd at all. The idea is that this is a new wave of figures after the ones actually made back in the day. So it doesn't matter if the Atlantean origin change had only just happened in the comics when the line ended - that's what they would've used at the time. That's also why she's Karen Starr there.

    Right, but I keep associating the two, and it makes my brain wonder about what ifs....

    Oh wow, that's almost exactly the same. Even has the same belt buckle logo.

    I have a question for older posters. Mods, tell me if this needs to move.

    So I REALLY got into this character through what I learned were Post Crisis fare, primarily her League adventures. It has been so long since current publications have produced any comics with her that I enjoyed.

    My question is, do you ever ...I guess grow past the comics/characters/hobby? I am wondering whether it is my folly for essentially trying to fit a square peg through a triangular hole. This is doubly true with the Amazon and the League for me.

    Well, I can't say I grew out of it, more that I lost interest in what is currently published.

    Had another think, you could play off the fact she's in a set next to Donna, Nightwing and kid Flash. PG as a Titan could be fun.

    That's where I'm at, though I still retain hope that a new writer will come on board, along with a new editor, and fix things, turning them back to what they were prior to Flushpoint, which initially ruined her.
