Damn it DC! They Did It To Power Girl!

Postby achilles » Thu Aug 21, 2014 11:54 am

Now very likely killing off Power Girl, (admittedly not the classic Power Girl, but as close as the Nu52 can get), they replace her with a Mary Sue black girl with no connection to PG at all save the she briefly worked for her and apparently is smarter that her, (no great feat with this Power Girl, as a cat would seem to be smarter).

Levitz, on ruining classic PG, seemed to be thrilled that he introduced and even worse version. Guess whose idea this was. If you guess started with a "D", and ended with an "o", then you're on the right track.

The plus side is that I get to drop DC comics entirely.

Check Rama for the whole sordid story.

NO! I do not want to visit Rama! Tell me here! :smt013

Also, DAMNIT! You summoned Herald and now he'll be all ego and smiles with Didio hate. Argh... tropes will be shit out as a result... so wrong... :smt011

Power Girl merely went back to her Earth. She's not dead - if anything she's likely one of the main attraction for the E2 weekly that's about to begin.

As for woman who acquired powers in the last World's Finest - I'd say it's more wait & see more rather than jumping the gun that they're killing PeeGee.

Levitz strongly implied that they did kill off Nu52 Power Girl, noting that she appears nowhere in the five years later thing, and the Mary Sue is Huntress's new partner. He seemed almost gleeful.

It saddens me to contemplate how far Levitz has fallen from the glory days of stories like the Great Darkness Saga. He's just pumping out crap now.
