Terrible character but funny joke. Question - Why is it so many female Superhero characters have such unoriginal origins like Powergirl or Supergirl, the writers at DC and Marvel can seriously not come up with something better for female characters then be silly copies of established male Superheroes ? Are there any MALE Superheroes who are copies of female Superheroes ? Got's to love sexism at hard work. I say support original Superheroines and get rid of these pathetic copies who for the most part are original inventive male Superheroes creations.
For the most part, Superheroes are Archtype driven, hence many games that allow characters to be created put the options into categories. Take for example: What is different about Batman and Daredevil? Slight origin changes, the color of costumes, and the types of gadgets they use? Both are only different mildly on the surface, the real difference comes in their personalities. The same is true of these female versions of male characters, with the right creative teams a woman with the same powers as Superman is a completely different character, not a shallow copy. Also, historically, these women characters were brought forth in a different era of male dominance and sexism that these characters can now be used to fight.. Superman, the first superhero has been copied in male and female varieties for decades now, and even he is a copy of mythical champions brought forth into the modern age.
