Now that was just plain creepy. Also, not in love with the fact that they made HER Lust. When she's never really shown that inclination before. While she certainly had anger and pride issues. Par for the course for PG though. DC has never really showcased her, (even in Showcase). When she was supposed to be a or even THE critical player in Infinite Crisis, she wound up sitting most of it out as a statue, and crying ineffectually for the rest of the time. Not her finest hour. DC hates her worse than most of their other characters IMO.

That was amusing enough, (and I have that issue still), but it had an underwhelming villain, and really did nothing for PG as a character.

That last was the best opportunity they EVER had to build Power Girl up as a character to be taken very seriously, but they just couldn't pull the trigger on it. Sure, they have her gouge Darkseid's eye out, walking right through his Omega Beams to do it, and then later have her out-run those same Omega Beams, one of only a very few characters to ever do that, but they punk her out to him every other panel. If they'd just had her do what it took the whole Justice League to do, that would have established her permanently as one of DC's top bad-asses, rather than as a joke character they seem intent on keeping a joke.

The unfortunate thing is that you're surprised when DC does something stupid with many of their notable characters.

Geoff Johns doesn't really like PG; he had to ask fans what makes her any good when he had to consider putting her in the JSA back in the early 2000's. There's your major warning sign that she's not going to be treated so well, right there.

Surprise, surprise; Dan and the Gang aren't much good with their strong female characters.

Yeah, I remember that; I was one of those fans. She did seem to have some pull for a bit there when they were pushing her in the mid 2000s, but then that got shut down real quickly.
