Check out her reaction to the offer of a chest symbol in All-Star #64 for a good explanation of why this would not be a good idea.

Lol, first of all, sorry for my lack of reasoning when I started the thread. I'd just like to see her paying some kind of homage to her kriptonian heritage.

(I understand that the symbol was reestablished as a kriptonian letter, right?)

I don't know how developed is the kriptonian alphabet out there, but maybe it could be stablished that it is an ideogrammatic language - and that particular character might as well express loss, sorrow etc.

Just a thought.

While we don't know how much of BIRTHRIGHT remains in continuity, the "S" symbol was described in that series as always having been on display when the Kryptonians made some sort of triumph or accomplishment.

Despite PG being from a different reality, I'd find it hard to swallow the symbol having an entirely different meaning in one universe from what it means in another. Too convenient.

There's always the version of it as the symbol or crest of "The House of El", tho', which would certainly make it right for Power Girl, tho' in her case I guess it'd be for "The House of L". \:\-\)

As someone pointed out, tho', when she was offered a "P" version of Superman's symbol, she just about took a nutty. One that doesn't even look like a "P" might be an even worse idea unless you've got some Earth-2 kryptonite available. \:\-p

Still, if it was established as meaning "House of L", her earlier reaction might be retconned out, if it hasn't been already.

Yeah, but, scince then A LOT has occurred during her time in the DCU in general such as regaining her Pre-CoIE E-2 memories as well as being reunited with her E-2 cousin Superman and his wife only to have LOST the earlier at the hands of Pre-CoIE own E-Prime's so called "Superboy/man-Prime" during the event that was Infinite Crisis itself.

Heck, just look to that particular issue in terms of current Post-IC DCU continuity eras "New Earth" of this here title where it had Power Girl cursing her beloved dead E-2 cousin for leaving her with out a family again so soon after having encountered the E-Kingdom Come eras Superman only to shortly after decide to take up his heart felt offer for them 2 to try to become family on our "New Earth" proper.

My point being that surely Power Girl who is MORE mature now then to what she was WAY back when she was first introduced within All-Star #64 prior would be more then willing to at least contemplate having her cousin's memory honored in SOME manner like say a E-2 Superman "S" shield engraved on to her cape's golden shoulder clasp, or bar that even on to her belt buckle just as sign of SOME token of respect for her fallen cuz and his beloved memory.

She doesn't HAVE to change all together in look to that of her deceased E-2 Superman cuz, nor in name from "Power Girl" to "Superwoman" but still remain as she is come overall visual as well as Super heroine alias name only she's just chosen to add an engraving on SOME part of her costume of the E-2 Superman "S" shield just to acknowledge her dearly departed and ever beloved iconic E-2 cuz legacy and all he had stood for.

Not to sound sexist, but why would you want to cover up her cleavage? That is problem her most effective power when dealing with straight male and gay female super vilians.
