THEORY: Could Power Girl Appear on Supergirl?


With Supergirl now officially in Pre-Production of its first and hopefully long series run on CBS and recent comments by Geoff Johns that we would see stuff as comic book style as Gorilla Grodd was on The Flash, it got me thinking could we ever see characters like Bizarro or Power Girl appear? This is another theory of mine and is not from any news source or from the series, so take this as speculation.

First off Power Girl has had several versions over the years and I will post the two versions I think will more than likely be the ones to appear if at all. Also keep in mind the look of Power Girl would most likely get changed a bit if it were to happen. Anyway, in the words of The Joker..

Here we GO….

MOST WELL KNOWN ORIGIN: While Power Girl has had only a few revisions, most of them all are consistent with her being the Power Girl of Earth 2, which in comic book canon is actually the Golden Age timeline that continued to go on when the canon was retconned to the Silver Age with the first appearance of Barry Allen as The Flash in Showcase #4 (1956). This origin could work if we were to get multi-verses introduced in this new series or if later on they do finally connect the series with The Flash. The New 52 also brought this origin back but making Power Girl officially Supergirl of Earth 2, instead of being called Power Girl and being adopted by Superman instead of just being her cousin.


Keep in mind both versions or maybe neither could appear on the series if at all, but this is why I think we may see this particular version. In the DC Animated Universe Bruce Timm introduced Galatea, who is basically just Power Girl, she was made by Cadmus Labs and Dr. Emil Hamilton, who stole Kara’s Kent/Supergirl DNA during the period of time in the Superman: The Animated Series series finale when Superman was brainwashed by Darkseid. Due to Dr,. Hamilton’s fear that Superman and Supergirl could turn rogue he cloned her and in Justice League: Unlimited she made her appearance psychically linked to Supergirl. On the CBS series we already know that Hank Henshaw(played by David Harewood)is very untrusting of any alien beings with powers and in the comics becomes Cyborg Superman, what if we see him create a clone of Supergirl that he feels he can control? There is an alternate universe version(Earth 9) of Power Girl who is married to a Black Superman and a genetic experiment by the Chinese Government, another scenario, although, highly unlikely.

So what do you think? Am I crazy? Would you like to see any of these versions?

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    I would love to see Power Girl on the show, as a heroine. The Flash series seems to be opening up the possibility of the Multiverse, so if that could include all DC properties, then Supergirl too could have access to a parallel Earth – and hopefully a teamup with Power Girl.

  • If Power Girl would to ever appear on Supergirl, it’ll be funny to see how her costume looks…

    With Flash introducing the “52” fractures spread over Central City, I’d think there is a very real possibility of the actress playing Supergirl also playing Power Girl. They’ve already brought in a couple of heroes/villains from what they’re calling Earth 2, so I don’t see why they’d shy away from bringing in one of the more famous heroes from the very same place. In fact, I think that just might be how they go about bridging the two shows.. I could totally see Flash stumbling across a confused Power Girl as she emerges from a fracture, getting into a fight somehow and getting his rear handed to him before she flies off, bringing in Supergirl to help and then that whole “what the what?!” moment when they realize that they could pass for twins because they are in fact the same person. Heck, she might even help out somehow with the closing of those fractures which could lead to her being stranded on our Earth as she is supposed to be.

    Power Girl would be a great addition to the Super Girl show. If they were to do it tho they would have a hard time finding someone who is as ample breasted as Power Girl is to play the role methinks.With the whole PC nonsense stifling tv these days, I doubt she would even have the bust revealing costume or the BLACK lover(DC seem to be ok with black female love interest for their characters but not the black male…why is that?) as MR. Terrific is gay on the Arrow and it still looks like the TV world isnt ready for a Black Superman unfortunately…well DC dont appear to be. I would love to see her as Jimmy Olsen’s eventual love interest on the show, after being pushed into the friend-zone by Super Girl. She could be a clone of Super Girl but augmented to appear more buxom and mature. Ok I admit it I’ve always had a thing for Power Girl even tho I’m more of a Marvel Fan, I’m enjoying DC tv and movies tho. hope Power Girl gets a chance.
