Showcase: Power Girl (1978)

Showcase #97

Power Girl received an origin story in Showcase #97-99. The tagline on the first issue proclaims Power Girl “Exploding Into Her Own Action-Packed Series!” which suggests that a Power Girl spin-off series may have been planned. As an origin story it’s fairly weak and unnecessarily convoluted in its attempt to distinguish Power Girl’s origin from that of Superman and Supergirl.

Reprinted in trade paperback: Power Girl (2006).

Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter
