Power Girl, Kara Zor-L


We had a record number of hits on Power Girl day last week.  (I’m sure it had nothing to do with the Adam Hughes art).  However, there was a second Power Girl that was supposed to be previewed that day and never made it.  Here she is:


Stats-wise, this Power Girl isn’t that impressive.  (Ironic, no?)  When she comes into play, you can rally for a location card.  The odds of successfully rallying for a location card probably aren’t that good in most decks.  But the JSA has ways to stack the deck (see Survivor of Another World: https://dcupreviews.wordpress.com/2008/07/23/power-girl-sole-survivor/).

If you are successful, the payoff is pretty darn big.  (It’s hard not to make obvious jokes, but I will resist.)  On offense, you get invulnerability for the turn.  On defense, you get reinforcement.  Odds are, you won’t be taking a whole lot of damage on turn 7!

I’d say Power Girl more than makes up for her statistical short comings.

I’m going to stop now.

    Umm, you mean you won’t be taking a lot of damage on turn 7, right? Not turn 6.

    Yeah. I was in a rush because we were leaving for the zoo. I should know by now not to write articles when I’m rushing.

    Also, this PG was a 6-drop at one point in development. Thus my confusion.
