Earth 2 Update: First Look at Supergirl – Karen Starr

DC Source is reporting:

Coming in May, DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave” will literally expand the world-building efforts of the comprehensive publishing initiative. With the addition of a parallel Earth that features prominently into both EARTH 2 and WORLDS’ FINEST, the developing narrative will encompass new heroes from distinctly different backgrounds, building on the shared universe in some surprising ways.

“Superman’s cousin loves her adopted world with a passion, seeing how the people of Earth have adopted her and taken her to their hearts,” said EARTH 2 writer James Robinson. “She is the definitely brightest light among this first group of Earth 2 heroes.”

“Meet the Earth 2 Supergirl, aka Karen Starr,” said WORLDS’ FINEST editor Wil Moss. “As readers of MISTER TERRIFIC already know, Karen has been busy since she arrived on the main DCU Earth, creating a successful company and dating the brilliant Michael Holt. But what are her true motives behind those actions? How did she get here? And what incident prompts her to take up her new identity of Power Girl? Find out in WORLDS’ FINEST #1!”

Here’s a first look at the Supergirl of Earth 2, designed by Kevin Maguire.

Skitch Commentary: I love all this info coming out about Earth 2 this week. Seems like it was designed around a very clear plan.  I have especially liked the costume designs which all have a real classic look to them, but still seem pretty fresh and relevant.

I have never really been a huge Power Girl fan (she’s always felt a little redundant to me…and I have a friend who is going to kill me for saying that), but Worlds’ Finest and Earth 2 are both already on my pull list.
