Just kidding. I am into my disappointed with DC phase again before the year ends and the reboot is actually old enough to have more perspective. Power Girl is a great character - but one that has some entrenched and conflicting ideas in my opinion. My favorite aspect of her is her brash nature and though some people think showing your tits is brash and that matches, I have to disagree. I like to think that the strongest women I know have no need to flash flesh to be paid attention to - the whole actions speak louder than words (or tits) idea.
Don't get me wrong - I love strong, sexy women. What I don't like is the sexualization of a character before the consideration of their WRITTEN character. Man of Steel encountered a lot of residual emotional hate, but one thing I always will like about it is the armor design. Worn, battered, weathered, and above all ceremonial - the armor was perhaps scaled to ridiculous proportions on all the male characters, but Faora was my favorite even though her breastplate was impractical. Any breastplate that imitates actual female breasts forces blows to the center of the chest to channel into the plate instead of deflecting it which is what good armor should do. But applying some of the ceremonial aspects to Power Girl is something I wanted to try.
Missing from her Kryptonian array is the glyph. A lot of people made fun of the Glyph but I loved it. An emblem of my house, easy to digest icons. Power Girl has no glyph - an idea I used instead of baring her chest. There's goofy metaphoric storytelling there - she wears no sigil or glyph to indicate the departure from Kryptonian pasts. Seems a more dignified way to explain the bare chest concept than merely flashing her boobs in my mind.
