Best Page Ever I love your Karen the best and if what you said at the convention was true then drawing her this much must of killed you butI thank you so much totally late to the game here but I love it
There's a long answer, and a short answer. I'll try to give you the short answer.
You know how there's a Supergirl, Kara Zor-El? Superman's cousin? Well, Earth 2 is/was (this is ALSO confusing, but bear with me here) a parallel universe to the "mainstream" DC, where Superman's name is Kal-L, not El. Well, Earth 2's "Supergirl", Kara Zor-L, is a bit more grown up (in her mid-late twenties as opposed to being a teenager) who names herself Powergirl. Her civilian ID is Karen Starr, who works as a scientist.
Now, for the whole answer, look up the Golden Age of Comics, Silver Age of Comics, Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis, Final Crisis, Flashpoint, and the New 52. And you'll know just about everything that happened in DC Comics up till now.
I don't think batman likes her. I think he's trying it make it so that if Karen likes him instead of Clark... maybe Diana will open up to the idea that Clark likes her. I might be wrong, after all, he did complement her clothes that one day, and comfort her when Clark went to talk to Diana, but... when he advised Clark to give Diana the other gift, and told him that he didn't know what to do, it really surprised me. if Bruce got it into his head to help Clark, he would have a plan. and if something messed up his plan, he'd come up with a new one. and I think the get with Karen thing is the new plan.
Oh girl... oh... If she has AT LEAST done it like a kid!!! - just change mind immediately, like: "Ok, so I like you too". Well I guess that Kryptonians have one hidden super power - superlying, which made them good liars even when they have IQ of kid.
This has to be the funniest one in a long while. Great writing.
But Diana going on not too long ago how much of an amazon and warrior she is and the stupidity of girls having to pander to boy heroes...one wonders if suddenly she's going to fall to the same stupid stuff she was complaining about. Poor Clark...how much salt in the wound is he going to have to cope with if this is so.
