Power Girl (DC)
Real Name: Karen Starr (Kara Zor-L)
Search for 'Power Girl (DC)' on Amazon

All of Superman's (Kal-L) powers.

Standard Kryptonian weaknesses.

Power Girl is the Earth-Two equivalent of Supergirl, native Kryptonian and cousin to Superman. Her origins have changed several times in continuity when the Multiverse was erased Post-Crisis, and she has also been seen as a descendant of Arion with ties to Atlantis. The distinctive costume she wears lacks an emblem, and she uses this as an advantage to distract others in combat. She has been a member of the Justice League, the Justice Society, Infinity, Inc., Birds of Prey, the Suicide Squad and the Sovereign Seven.

Created by Gerry Conway.

Famous Quotes: - Add a Famous Quote
"You can call me Power Girl... It's as good a name as any other and it won't confuse me with my cousin. His name you already know... It's Superman."

"I may be Superman's cousin, but I'm not his carbon copy! I'm my own woman!"

"Power comes from self-reliance... and dignity."

"This costume only shows what I am. Female. Healthy. And Strong. If men want to degrad themselves by staring and drooling and tripping over themselves. That's their problem. I'm not going to apologize for it."

"to Superman "the first time I made this costume, I wanted to have a symbol, like you. I just…I couldn’t think of anything. I thought eventually, I’d figure it out. And close the hole. But I haven’t.""
