The history of Power Girl:
Power Girl was created by comics legend Wally Wood, Gerry Conway and Ric Estrada and debuted in All Star Comics #58 in 1976. An interesting story about her chest window, when the character was created, Wally Wood was convinced that the editors were not paying attention to anything he did. So, his inker said every issue I’m going to draw the boobs bigger until they notice it. It took about seven or eight issues before anyone was like hey, what’s with the boobs? And that’s where they stopped.
Why is there a lack of a symbol on the front of Power Girls costume? Geoff Johns answers this question in JSA Classified #2 in 2005. Power Girl explains her cleavage-window to Superman, revealing that….
“The first time I made this costume, I wanted to have a symbol, like you. I just…I couldn’t think of anything. I thought eventually, I’d figure it out. And close the hole. But I haven’t.”
I think these are the two best representations of Power Girl cos-play around! Carrie Keagan has the classic Wood style look and Alyssa Loughran has a modern powerful look!
