In the DCnU that is.  At some point.  For sure.  According to the guy who asked the question at the SDCC panel, and the podcast of said panel.

It's about at 41 minutes into it.
 
No word on when.  Sounds like in the pages of Mr. Terrific.  No word on if her origin is the same.  No word even if Karen Starr is PG, or if someone else is.
 
But still, Power Girl will be back!

Great....I have to pick up Mr. Terrific if I want to see PG. Why didn't they just include Justice Society of America in the launch?

@Duo_forbidden
I was going to pick up Mr. Terrific anyway, but it doesn't hurt that PG is in it.

It's been confirmed that the Multiverse still exists so there are still multiple Earths.

@Kal'smahboi: true, but did the crisis still happen? That is how she gets stranded in the regular DC universe. I'm curious how they explain it without destroying whole universes...

Good question. It'd be nice to have the list of what history is still relevant that the writers were all given.

@Kal'smahboi: and what heroes or aspects of heroes are there and what we know wouldn't be included in this new universe...at least what is planed now. no telling what we'll see in the future...

@The Poet: Yeah. I guess they'll give clues to power sets and origin changes in the first arcs.

At least that is a bit of good news even though it's still a step down from her current position. I wouldn't mind if they decided to tweak her origins, but no pants!

@Primmaster64: Unknown if PG is still Kara Zor-L, or if she's even Karen Starr, though I would think that it makes sense for both to be true.  With them messing with Kryptonian powersets, no idea what hers will be.  And of course, though it seems as if Mr. Terrific is where Power Girl will appear as well as Karen Starr, there's no word on when that will happen.  Could be a long wait.  And it seems as if Karen at least is only a guest in Mr. Terrific, rather than ongoing supporting cast.
 
And it is true that this is still a big come-down from where she was a couple of months ago, when she had her own title, plus JSA All-Stars, plus sometime appearances in JSA, plus Generation Lost---which is still where I think she should be appearing, but they've set it up so she can't.
 
Hopefully, down the road, Power Girl will get her own title back as a replacement for the ones that fail.  And hopefully, she's much the same as she is now.

I'm not sure, but this kinda looks like her on the cover for Voodoo #2:

What's the point then?  PG's had her own book!  Now she been reduced to supporting cast?  This is yet another reason why I'm not taking part of this relaunch!

I'd prefer a clone or gene-splice or something, like Superboy's origin.

@fodigg: I agree. Looks like they have turned Superboy into some android or somethin' anyway so a clone type situation would be interesting.
