A Black Rose Fate Awaits Power Girl (Action Comics #1052 Spoilers)

So, thanks to the events of Lazarus Planet, both Power Girl and Supergirl have turned up the notches on their psychic abilities in today's Action Comics #1052.

So, thanks to the events of Lazarus Planet, both Power Girl and Supergirl have turned up the notches on their psychic abilities. Although for Kara Danvers, this seems to have had quite the unfortunate side effect on the Kryptonian language patterns in her brain, in today's Action Comics #1052.

Which is interpreted as an attack on Power Girl herself, who of course used to be the Supergirl of Earth Two, and cousin of that dimension's Superman. But never makes it onto the family group shots.

Like these two from Action Comics #1052. Even when Conner Kent, a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor, does. To be fair, after Crisis and the elimination of Earth Two, she was retconned as the granddaughter of the Atlantean sorcerer Arion. It took another twenty years for her to be ret-retconned back to being a refugee from the Krypton of the Pre-Crisis Earth-Two. Today's Stargirl: The Lost Children #5 also remembers that time of rewriting.

It's not quite "Desperate scientists. Last hope. Kindly couple" but it will do. And people do forget about Karen Starr.

And we get confirmation of psychic abilities all round, shared by both versions of Supergiurl now though, Power Girl is a little stronger and more adept in this regard.

So when tackling the psychic attack, it's worth keeping an eye on what message has been sent to Power Girl.

You know, they have been rather late of late.. but is that enough to kill her? And it seems she is not the only one in Metropolis with problems with an extended superfamily.

There are other potential threats as well… sometimes it's all in the genes.
