Previous Post

On the Superman Homepage website, someone did a writeup/review of Earth 2: Society #4, and he referred to the now deceased Earth-2 Kal-El as Power Girl's FATHER.

Have they retconned something, or does this guy have no idea what he's talking about? When Karen was on the mainstream DC Earth and encountered Supergirl, the thoughts they shared showed they were both Superman's cousin, both had lost their Krypton, etc.

How in the world can Karen now be said to be Clark's DAUGHTER?

The reviewer was talking about the fire pits on Apokolips, and describes them as "the same fire pits in which Kal-El, the original Superman and Power Girl's father, had lost his life."

What in the world is going on in the Earth-2 universe and has something very strange been revealed?

No, nothing has changed. It's just that having brought her up Power Girl sees Lois and Clark as her parents - just as Clark sees Jonathan and Martha as his parents.
Power Girl's feelings were reinforced during the World's End series when she finds Superman still alive after five ears of being thought to be dead, It was Paul Levitz who reinforced the idea in Worlds Finest, and with Lois ressurrected as The Red Tornado her acceptance of their important role in her life makes perfect sense in the context - her family.
