Sorry Power Girl: I Just Can’t Do It.

In honour of the end of what will surely be remembered as the best run of Power Girl appearances (that’s right, not just in her own comic: anywhere) I was going to put together a timeline of PG appearances that would necessarily showcase the changes to her costume and *ahem* carriage over the years. The longer that I worked on it though, the more it became evident that I was going to end up with a thirty-year history of one character’s boobs.

    The thought occurred to me the other day that Power Girl is really just Supergirl with more cleavage and less baggage. Then I realized how easily that phrase could end up on a T-shirt worn by a low-class jerk if it ever got into the wrong hands. This gave me a slight urge to kill myself.
