I have been a fan of Power Girl since she ushered in the second generation of the JSA back in the 70's when All-Star Comics was revived. I loved the Justice Society and it was nice to be able to read the adventures of one of their members from the very beginning. I also used to get a kick out of how Firestorm would flirt with her during the JLA/JSA crossovers. I am glad that after years of being a teammate and occasional guest star, Power Girl has come into her own. Rather than run from her convoluted continuity, writers have used it as a basis for her characterization. I felt that the pairing of artist Amanda Conner with Power Girl for her self titled series was perfect, and it was nice to see a series in these days that didn't take itself so seriously all the time.
