> > The only thing I'm not sure about is Power Girl as Chairwoman, I just don't think it will work for her character (of course, it doesn''t help that I'm not fond of the character anyway), I would be MUCH more interested in seeing Stargirl as the chairwoman, given how much she has matured whilst she has been with the JSA. Power Girl as chairwoman doesn't work for me, simply because I consider her a scrapper, and a powerhouse but NOT chairwoman material. I'm also not sure about Jesse's power level, and I would like Geoff take some time to define that as well as establish exactly how long they have been married. (It's a mibor detail, but it would add to the characters for me.)

I can understand why Jay, Alan and Ted don't want to act as chairman again, what I don't get is why it wasn't offered to Sand(man) again, he did an excellent job last time, and if not him why not Hawkman or Hourman, or even Jesse Chambers 9Liberty Bell) they all have experience over Kara (as leaders, and as heroes).

I don't see the logic there at all, the reason Alan gave for Kara to take over as the chairwoman is that she is the first of the new generation of heroes, but I disagree with that, I would argue that Courtey was and, whilst she *is* a teenager, she has the maturity to act as chairwoman, even now (she's certainly experienced enough, IMHO)

Cheers.

Not really, she still IS a teenager. PeGEE has far more life-experience as hero and woman than Courtney, no matter if she is the best choice for the job, or not. Leading involves far more than just yelling: CHARGE!

As it is at the moment, Courtney is just slightly ahead of Maxine Hunkel and Wildcat jr. And even the latter is probably more mature than her.
