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.
