Geoff Johns indicated in a recent interview that she would be getting involved with a JSA member. Obviously Jay, Alan, Ted are too old, Hourman is spoken for. So that leaves Sand (too old?), Hawkman, Damage, new Commander Steel, Wildcat Jr. (too young?), Dr. Midnight, Mr. Terrific, and Starman. Which of these gentlemen? I'm guessing maybe Commander Steel.

I`d like to see her get involved with the new Mr.America,it would be interesting to see Power Girl initiate him into the superhero world and have slowly develop into romance.

I think he gets her down to her tighty-whities for yet another physical exam, and she decides to allow him to go deep undercover to find whatever it is he's looking for.

Just a guess.

Agree on Jay, Alan, and Ted.

While Sand is actually just a little younger than Jay, Alan, and Ted...physically he's mid-20's. Carter is physically late 20's, early-30's...but near 80.

Damage and Steel are both around 20, Wildcat Jr. is 23, and I'm thinking she'd go for men a little more mature.

Mr. Terrific is currently involved with Sasha in Checkmate.

My guess would be Dr. Mid-Nite. She's flirted with him before.

When possessed by Lust itself, she only went after men, didn't she? (JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice) That just about makes it a guarantee.

I'm not sure that means anything. Being possessed by Lust, Karen would try to inspire lust in heterosexual men through her wiles, not heterosexual women.

The reason I think it would be interesting if Karen turned out to be bi or a lesbian is that she was introduced in an era when feminism was still relatively new as a political force. It was clear writers writing her were influenced in this regard. As a character, she was made distinct by her no-nonsense attitude and a fierce competitiveness toward men. She also had a very close relationship to Earth-2 Huntress. She's also always sported a relatively butch hairdo compared to other female superheroes. Maybe making her gay would be too stereotypical, but if any character has developed along those lines throughout their history, it's Power Girl. Homosexuality would have been completely taboo in comics in the 70s, but is much more acceptable now.

What does being a feminist have to do with being a lesbian? Having read those early issues when they came out I saw no indication that the writers were implying any link between the two (Feminist and Lesbians).All I've ever seen is a strong independent women who refused to be treated as a second class citizen by the male dominated world around her.
How is her hair style butch? She has been drawn with both long and short hair , the short hair is actually more practical in her line of work.
In my eyes,Power girl suddenly being outed as either gay or bisexual would be a betrayal of what the character stands for.

Not necessarily anything, but the two have been intertwined throughout much of their history. Read...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbian_feminism

> Having read those early issues when they came out I saw no indication that the writers were implying any link between the two (Feminist and Lesbians).

No, but as I wrote above, lesbianism would have been completely taboo in comics, which were geared much more toward children, at that time.

> All I've ever seen is a strong independent women who refused to be treated as a second class citizen by the male dominated world around her.

Thus embodying strong feminist principles.

> How is her hair style butch? She has been drawn with both long and short hair , the short hair is actually more practical in her line of work.

It's only butch relatively speaking. There aren't that many superhero females out there who sport short hair.

> In my eyes,Power girl suddenly being outed as either gay or bisexual would be a betrayal of what the character stands for.

Betrayal of what exactly?

If she must date anyone, I'd rather it be Andrew Vinson.

Her history, maybe?
As it was already stated, when she was possessed by Lust, she only went after guys. It would be pretty unbelievable to out her as a lesbian now.
Of course, they did it with Montoya, so who knows?

Going after men while being mind-controlled hardly represents anything definitive. Power Girl has flirted with men in the past, but she could be bi, like Knockout. Knockout dated Superboy before becoming Scandal’s lover.

frankly if powergirl does go out with a inexperienced, unbalanced member of the team I'd prefer Starman, they have a fun dynamic already.
