Power Girl and Power Man in: "Doomsday Preppers!"



For Valentine's Day, we see that Karen Starr and Luke Cage are continuing their courtship - the couple that battles together, stays together - at least in their case!

This is the fifth appearance of The Power Couple.  They last were seen battling The Parasite in STF #2064,  they found a bounty on their heads in STF #1892,  faced the mob together in STF #773 and first met in STF #71...

love for one of these Power Man/Power Girl covers to have Jessica Jones in a sort of Romance cover feeling spurned as a lover.

I bet the Power Couple wish they had the Parasite backing them up on this one. Vs.Doomsday? Sa-Weeeeeeeeeeeeeet Xmas!

Seeing these two together reminds me of the all humor What If? which I think to be #34. One gag posed "What if Power Man were a girl and Wonder Man were a woman?" This obviously changes their respective names to Power Girl and Wonder Woman, both of whom are DC characters, and there even showed a gag letter. It essentially depicted a cease and desist "warning" against publishing that gag, and it was "signed" by the "Distinguished Competition." I suppose if WW and Cap split up in the "Rossverse" she could hook up with Simon and become the Wonder Couple. Put them with these two, and you have the Power & Wonder team.

I don't know why, but I'm picturing the Black Dynamite series theme playing along with the cover. Shit, Luke Cage SHOULD be Black Dynamite!

This is a great cover, Ross. I would definitely want to see how these two throw down against Doomsday.

Someone else who might be interesting to see together with Doomsday, whether on the same side or in opposition: Apocalypse. Just the names are foreboding.

I want to see how me ad Jessica Jones gets when she finds out that Luke is tipping on the side. She never seemed comfortable using her powers but I think in fight with Kara she would get comfortable quickly.

Yeah,this wouldn't be much of a scrap....Power Girl would hold her own for a short time but as much as I dig Luke Cage,he is waaaay outta his league here!

Glenn Host said...

I was talking about Jessica Jones being uncomfortable using her powers! Right now she is "street" hero but before she was quite a bit more.

Jinzo 2400 said...

Definitely Glenn.....she is holding back quite a bit based on what we saw in the Defenders!
