Reply Subj: Did Power Girl deserve to survive Original Crisis?

I think it was a total accident. They had her survive and planned to give her
a new background and origin but everytime some writer attempted to make a new
storyline it was so stupid or humorous (hence the retarded Atlantean background)
that they just scrapped it.
After two tries at recreating Powergirl's background and falling flat on their face
it was too late to kill her off because Powergirl gained such a big fanbase.
You see a lot of these PG fans at comic cons with their stuffed bras and skin
tight outfits. I know a guy with a custom mego figure of Powergirl he bought
off eBay. The fanbase is there.
Powergirl is hip! Maybe it is because she is an "adult" version of Supergirl. I won't
give details what "adult" means I am sure you know.
So, they have this character Powergirl. Two failed attempts to change her background
and make her legit in the new universe.
It only seemed fitting when all this 52 universe stuff and new crisis stuff
surfaced, was to just give her back her heritage.
No one complained...
