This was a "for fun" drawing that I sketched out real quick because I had some Bristol board in front of me. After that I HAD to ink it. Inks were done with a Kuretake brush pen and Pental Pocket brush pen. I love the latter, but it dries slow so I'm always smearing it.

Very nice, how do you decide which lines to make heavier and which lighter? do you make a line heavier for the eye to be drawn to or just a balancing thing? really curious how you make you line weight decisions, I look to reach such level with my own line work.
In general, I try and weight (thicken) the line on the bottom to make it more weighted to the bottom, BUT, I'm not a stickler. I also make the line thicker on the top of the head and around the cheeks, so I break that rule regularly.
Depends on the character. Women with looser inhibitions and more seductive natures, like Catwoman, Tigra, or Emma Frost, can make sense with it. But on the whole I'd agree; Power Girl in particular never acted like someone who would show cleavage unless DC was forcing her to.
