also, unlike other DC characters, I like how she's so down to earth!!(^ v ^)
I've only just started reading comics, so Powergirl's current personality (which I have no real problems with thus far) is, to me, her only personality.
That said, I can certainly understand why would not like such a big and unwanted change. I'll have to check out her pre-New 52 comics to see what I've apparently been missing.
Now, back to Pickyville. If the power of Kryptonians on Earth derives from our sun, their physical condition is pretty much irrelevant. If Ralph Kramden was Krypton born, he could lift his bus with a finger, even though overweight and out of condition. So I guess Peej WAS toning her arm, for appearence's sake. Even though she makes it clear that she does not wish to be admired for her physical attributes, she still must take a certain pride in them. Very human attitude, that.
stellar work as always , it does piss me off that they turned her into a slutty , vain , dumb blonde in worlds finest with helena doing most of the thinking.
connors powergirl was none of those things , she could think by herself and was fun. atleast the costume is back .
Maybe they will ( accidentally or intentionally ) revert her personality back to match her old costume.
From the beginning on was she drawn as a sex symbol and the costume accentuated it even more. It worked from the economical context (sex sells you know) but it leads the character straight into a dead end. I fear she will be trapped there forever. New 52 wasn't the first try to change this. They all failed, and future attemps will too. For me it's a pity.
Long live the cleavage window.
