Coming up next in the DC Comics Bishoujo Collection (combining DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) is the mighty Kryptonian from Earth Two, Power Girl! First appearing in All Star Comics in 1976, Kara Zor-L was sent to Earth just like her cousin Kal, and she too became a costumed superhero. Taking the alter ego Karen Starr, Power Girl fought crime and supervillains alongside the Justice Society of America, eventually crossing over to Earth-One. One of the most popular female characters in comics, and voted among the sexiest, Power Girl finally joins the exclusive ranks of the DC Bishoujo ladies based on an original interpretation by Shunya Yamashita.
