Good Lord, could his Power Girl look any dumpier?

A few more pics like this and PG's fan base of drooling pubescents should dwindle down to nothing.

Never liking Power Girl AT ALL, I have to say that this rendering is odd, a square jaw and strong lines on the face don't match the already odd "two basketballs" in the shirt look.

She looks like a slightly younger Ross Superman in drag.  Except he's got narrower hips.

Actually, I luv PG.  I hate the Ross interpretation however.  Give me Andy Ha!'s version any day of the week!

It's unfortunate Alex Ross' interpretation of Power Girl is so masculine. Even his Wonder Woman is rather "muscular". Somewhere along the way, DC artists began rendering powerful females with disproportionate cut appearances. I recall an issue of JLA, where Wonder Woman was dating Bruce Wayne and she looked rather ridiculous. On the other hand some warrior women, such as Big Barda, work.

Back to Power Girl, I always figured she was curvy and not worried about her biceps. Wasn't she based off Jayne Mansfield?

Was she? I have no idea. I always assumed that she embodied the desirable-but-unattainable ethic, a sort of self-punishing fanboy thing. It says a lot that Ross makes her more masculine, but with the evident feminine features: it's basically the idea that if a woman doesn't fancy you, she must be a lesbian. Or am I getting far too psychosexual?

I think I understand my ire toward Power Girl more now...I actually wasn't a fan of a ton of Earth 2 characters being introduced, but the idea that she was so outrageously proportioned just seemed silly.  The muscled effect of all heroes lately leaves me cold too. Cool
