If she's really an alternate version of Supergirl...

Then why does she have a COMPLETELY different bodytype? This isn't a matter of "Supergirl just hasn't matured yet". Supergirl has a slim, cheerleader build. Powergirl is very curvy and well endowed, being built like an ideal playboy bunny. Ya can't even blame this on surgery, because it's more than just her breasts.

So this makes me wonder...is she REALLY an alternate version of Supergirl? Or just a "super girl"?

Yes she is. There is an alternate universe where Mary Jane Watson is black, but it's still an alternate mj.

She has a different build because she's from a different dimension, and in that dimension women are hotter

For the same reason that there is an alternate universe Galactus made of rock.

Lol that is also true.

But to put it more detail, there's the fact that Unlike Power Girl, I believe that Kara was about 16 when she was shipped away and during the travel, and her spaceship was placed in suspended animation due to kryptonite, whereas to Power Girl, she was a baby when she was shipped off to Earth and by the time she reached Earth, she was a young adult.

she was exposed to more estrogen in her universe. See, I just speculated, because thats all you can do.

Its a different universe, of course she will be different

She's an alternate version. That means it won't be the exact same. Look at Batman and Owlman, or Superman and Ultraman.

Umm, alternate characters don't have to look like each other at all, most of them don't. If they were supposed to be the same, what would be the point in alternate universes?
