Saw a Power Girl expy pop up briefly in The Boys comic. I'm not a fan of the "Superhero Deconstruction" genre, but she caught my eye. For obvious reasons.
Since nothing about her is known I've elected to give her some details.
I call her Supercharge. With powers of flight and kinetic energy. Which she can use as projectiles by directing it from her hands as well as a defense. Letting her tank anything and hit like one too with it's protection.
She is very proud of her Ms Fanservice rep and is a known part girl off the clock. As a result she tends to take a backseat to other heroes for bullshit Vought PR reasons, (much like how Power Girls has yet to have any live action appearances) but she's fine with that since it keeps them from interfering too much in her life.
I wonder how'd she look in the TV show? Since it improved all the "supes" costumes. Just compere Crimson Countess here.
While I don't like the genre, I can appreciate it giving the characters more depth, then Ennis was ever willing too.
She's a pretty cool character concept, actually. I like your ideas for her. They are definitely more creative than what Ennis is doing with her(which seems to be nothing). With your concept she could actually be a main character.
There are ways to tackle the idea of corporate sponsored Superheroes well, (like Tiger and Bunny) but he's too preoccupied with a dick about it.
She literally only showed up at the end of a mini series, so that Meave could say this.
Cause there's only three things he can do.
1.Shit on things he doesn't like, using shallow over the top caricatures.
2.Write rambling monologues for horrible people with no depth to make it seem like they do.
3.Be as classy as deep fried burger covered in grease, left in the back of a beat up hillbilly truck.
Only other page I could find her on is in the background here.
And this one before. https://www.dynamite.com/previews/C725130126368/Herogasm057.jpg
Anyway thanks. Though I think her color scheme could be replaced? Nothing too similar to Power Girl, but definitely different from what it is. Which is just The Deep's.
Btw. I've thought up her real name: Lauran Comet.
Cool name! I like it.
I agree with your assessment of Garth Ennis' writing 100%. Personally, I always felt he was an extremely overrated writer. He seemed more interested in trying to shock readers(generally unsuccessfully in my case) than he was in writing interesting or engaging characters.
