Power Girl (DC Comics) Character Review

Power Girl (real name Kara Zor-L, also known as Karen Starr) is a DC Comics superheroine (Character), making her first appearance in All Star Comics (January/February 1976).

Power Girl is the Earth-Two counterpart of Supergirl and the first cousin of Kal-L, Superman of the pre-Crisis Earth-Two. The infant Power Girl's parents enabled her to escape the destruction of Krypton. Although she left the planet at the same time that Superman did, her ship took much longer to reach Earth-Two.

Possessing all standard Kryptonian powers, she is a member of the Justice Society of America and the team's first chairwoman. Power Girl sports a bob of blond hair; wears a distinctive white, red, and blue costume; and has an aggressive fighting style. Throughout her early appearances in All Star Comics, Power Girl was frequently at odds with Wildcat, who had a penchant for talking to her as if she were an ordinary human female rather than a superpowered Kryptonian, which she found annoying.

The 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths eliminated Earth-Two, causing her origin to change; she became the granddaughter of the Atlantean sorcerer Arion. However, story events culminating in the 2005-2006 Infinite Crisis limited series restored her status as a refugee from the Krypton of the destroyed pre-Crisis Earth-Two universe. She was ranked ninth in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.

Powers and Abilities (Power Girl)


Power Girl exhibits all of the classic Kryptonian powers of Superman: super strength; flight; super speed; invulnerability; x-ray, telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; freeze breath; and super-hearing as the biological cousin of Superman.

Over the years various writers have given Power Girl's Kryptonian power differing levels, reflecting the lower powers of the Earth-Two Superman Kal-L. For example, Power Girl can fly through space, but has to breathe, so before she leaves a planet, she must take a deep breath and hold it for several hours until she needs a new oxygen source. Power Girl needs to sleep or she will experience disorientation due to fatigue. However, as recently shown in "Brightest Day", she now draws her superpowers from yellow sunlight, just like Superman. The reason for this change has not yet been explained.

Since she is from an alternate universe (pre-Crisis Earth Two), Kryptonite has no effect on her (see 'Conflicts' below), but she is still vulnerable to magic. As Karen Starr, she is an accomplished business woman and is regarded by Mr. Terrific as a first rate scientist.

Although Power Girl is from an alternate universe, her biology is similar to Superman's. As one of a handful of characters who survived the Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC editorial was initially uncertain how to portray the character and attempted to portray Power Girl with a non-Kryptonian origin for a number of years. Power Girl's abilities have fluctuated since 1986. For some time, Power Girl believed she was an Atlantean. At one point, Power Girl possessed telekinesis; at another she was vulnerable to attacks by certain natural elements (for example, wooden weapons). After sustaining severe injuries from a magic attack Power Girl retained only a degree of super strength, speed and durability. However, she later recovered her ability to fly, and writers have gradually restored her superpowers.

In Other Media (Film/Movie)

  • Power Girl appears in the animated Superman/Batman: Public Enemies film, voiced by Allison Mack. This marks her first true appearance in animation, as opposed to above the JLU version which is merely based on her. In the film, she works under the command of Captain Atom who is under orders from President Lex Luthor. When Superman is framed for murdering Metallo she is the only one of her group to truly doubt his guilt and later switches sides and helps both him and Batman. She attacks Major Force in anger after it is revealed he killed Metallo and then almost kills Batman, unwittingly rupturing Force's containment suit and almost causing him to explode, unleashing his nuclear energies on the city. The potential disaster is averted by Captain Atom, who absorbs all of the dying Major Force's energy into his own containment suit, making himself considerably more powerful in the process but passing out from the strain. She is later stated to have been the one to have helped them escape from Hawkman and Captain Marvel. Like the graphic novel on which the film is based, she is assigned to watch over the new teenage Toyman, Hiro Okamura. Similarly, Toyman also finds her quite attractive, going to the point of "testing" his X-Ray goggles on her, which she finds offensive, so she breaks his goggles, then keeps her distance from him from then on (he later tries to make a comment on her breast size as well, before being interrupted by Batman). She is knocked unconscious by Lex Luthor in his new Kryptonite enhanced battle-suit, but she recovers and is seen at the end taking the now impeached Luthor into custody, along with her squad members.
  • Power Girl makes a cameo appearance as a member of the Crime Syndicate of America in the animated movie Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, intended as the alternate reality's version of Supergirl.
