Here's the seventeenth pin-up in a series I'm doing called The Women of the New 52. This one is of the super strong and super fierce Karen Starr AKA Power Girl!
As the Supergirl from Earth-2, Kara Zor-L was trapped on another Earth with her friend and partner Helena Wayne (AKA Huntress). Kara adopted the identity of Karen Starr and built her own company from the ground up becoming a highly successful CEO. Her goal is to find her way back home though she and Helena both fear that it may be unattainable. World's Finest is shaping up to be an interesting read and Paul Levitz is doing an admirable job of showing Karen and Helena's closeness as friends.
A lot of fuss and bother has been made about Power Girl's newest costume. Many "fans" cried bloody murder when her cleavage was covered up... which seems to indicate that people care more about her breasts than her character. Many claim her cleavage is her trademark but if we are to believe that then maybe PG needs to start paying royalties since Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe trademarked that quite some time ago.
While I will concede that her newest costume isn't as great as it could be I feel that it forces the reader to concentrate more on her character rather than her body. The boob window is archaic and I'm glad to see it gone. I do like the light blue in her costume though. It really works with the white. I also like that (even though you can't see it here) she has stripes running down her sides to match the ones Huntress has in her costume.
