Who should be the new writer for World's Finest?

I think any PG fan would agree that she (and to a lesser extent Huntress) has been written very badly and out of character. I understand that the new52 is a hard reboot (not a relaunch, a REBOOT) but it seems very little of her personality has been preserved from all the great character development she got in JSA and her own series.

So, who you you guys think would be a better writer for World's Finest?

Personally, I would absolutely love for Palmiotti and Grey to write for her again. Failing that some other witter and clever writer. I'm currently reading Birds of Prey v1 and Gail Simone would be great. So, would Chuck Dixon (though I read he has problems with DC), he evern wrote one of my favourite PG stories, BoP #42.

Definitely love the idea of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray writing her again, but the one thing that I'd kill to see, is Amanda Conner drawing her again. Gail Simone is a great choice too.

The correct answer: Anyone who won't write her as a sleezy dimwit.

That being said, Gray/Palmiotti is the top choice, or Gail Simone.

Peter David. That man can write smart, funny, likable characters like nobodies business. His X-Factor has to be Marvels most underrated book. If he can't make Power Girl and Huntress enjoyable to read, I don't know who can.......

Joss Whedon, Stan Lee, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray

Let Kelly Sue DeConnick take a crack at her. She's written Supergirl, why not Power Girl? Other than her, I'd also try:

-Louise Simonson

-Andy Hartnell

-Brian Clevinger

I'm just throwing it out there, but I wouldn't mind seeing Frank Cho drawing a few issues here and there.
