This week we've been seeing a lot of character designs for the upcoming EARTH 2 and WORLD'S FINEST series. So far we've seen designs for Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman. Today, DC revealed the costume design for Supergirl by Kevin Maguire.

No Caption Provided

Here's what EARTH 2 writer James Robinson had to say:

Superman’s cousin loves her adopted world with a passion, seeing how the people of Earth have adopted her and taken her to their hearts. She is the definitely brightest light among this first group of Earth 2 heroes.

But who is this Supergirl? How does she relate to Power Girl? Here's what WORLD'S FINEST editor Wil Moss had to say:

Meet the Earth 2 Supergirl, aka Karen Starr. As readers of MISTER TERRIFIC already know, Karen has been busy since she arrived on the main DCU Earth, creating a successful company and dating the brilliant Michael Holt. But what are her true motives behind those actions? How did she get here? And what incident prompts her to take up her new identity of Power Girl? Find out in WORLDS’ FINEST #1!

Still not really sure about his one, i hope they will keep the funny part in the character.

So we will have superman, superboy, supergirl, powergirl, apollo, martian manhunter, shazam, jenny quantum ( and maybe the doctor from the authority), captain atom, firestorm and the flash on earth...good luck finding someone to beat that, DC really like godly characters...

Now that I look at it again, that camel toe comment is hilarious.

What makes this any different from normal Supergirl? GOD DAMN YOU DC!! Would you stop ramming The big three and their spin-offs/side-kicks down our throats, and show us the characters that would make the Earth-2 books interesting.

I've gone from really wanting to read Earth-2 stories to just not caring, fast.

And here I though the point of Earth-2 was to read about different versions of the main Earth characters? Supergirl-2/Power Girl sounds like the normal Supergirl we've been reading about.

DC, mix it up a bit, why'don'cha?

ahahahahahhahaha did someone's kid draw this? it looks like this is the version of supergirl that would guest star in a straight-to-dvd video called something like 'supergirl's bible adventures!'

It's apparent that the aforementioned wardrobe malfunction is the catalyst for her transition to Power Girl. Lol.

@Sakurafire: I imagine you won't have to read about this Supergirl too much though, 'cos we know she ends up in the main reality as Powergirl. Same with Helena Wayne/Robin.

Makes me wonder if they're gonna do a '5 years ago' style thing like with JL.

Not a great first impression, but that's probably due to the fact this looks as if it was colored using MS Paint. The others looked really cool as the sketch work.

Man i was really hoping that earth 2's main heros would be jay garrick and allan scott, all badass and experienced but still happy to do their jobs, and the new genration would be dick grayson as kind of a robin-batman hybrid (read: nightwing), power girl with boob window in abundance, and huntress. Dont get me wrong i absolutely love the darker, broody new 52 but i really wanted some whimsy and adventure out of earth 2...or at least get power girl half naked agian :(

Well this is just effin' confusing me now. Are this Earth-2 Supergirl and Power Girl one and the same or not? Its cryptic what's being said by Moss. Saw this this morning and its just making my head spin now. What started as simple for the Earth-2 reality is now becoming complicated. And yes, where in the bleepin' bleepity bleep bleep are the big three? Where are Garrick, Grant and Scott? Seriously...this is just getting to be weird now.

THIS HAS TO BE A MISTAKE!

The costume design itself is okay enough (sans the plastic man belt) but the quality of the colors, inks, and even the lines is atrocious.

What could have went wrong? DC uploaded the wrong image and now can't take it down? There has to be some explanation for this.

@RedheadedAtrocitus:

Yes they are one in the same. On Earth-2 she went by the name Supergirl, but when she came to Earth-0 (Main DCU) she changed her superhero name to Powergirl(I'm assuming because she realised having, two supergirls flying around would raise suspicion).

Just watch, tomorrow they're going to release the Superman photo and that'll be it. We wont hear about the JSA artwork until late april. Massive uproar.

@Sakurafire This Supergirl (Earth 2) sounds nothing like new52 Supergirl. Right now she can't speak English, doesn't fully trust Kal and barely knows her own powers. Karen Starr's Supergirl looks more cheerful and sounds more positive according to the blurb.

Not so crazy about it but maybe it will look better when it is properly drawn.

Do people not realise that Supergirl and Powergirl have always been the same person?

Don't you think it's just likely a rough design and not actual artwork from the book?

The design's ok I guess, but it really looks like a crayon drawing or something.

wth is that !!! it looks like a reject from the original Super Friends cartoon >_<

That is in no way up to DC's or any large publishers standards no matter how rough it is, releasing something like that too the public (especially as promotional material) is just unprofessional and insulting.

So wait does this mean that the Earth 2 titles takes place before Supergirl and Robin (Power Girl and Huntress) make their way to the mainstream Earth in Worlds' Finest?

Good design, this seems like a sketch color wise, not a finished product. Either way Earth 2 and Worlds Finest look great!!!

Now I know what it reminds me of, those super cheap coloring books made in Mexico and sold in like $0.99 stores, Big Lots and the occasional super ghetto K-Mart.

I'm a huge Maguire fan and I've seen his sketches and mock-ups before and they have never been this bad, it makes no sense.

Too many pentagons. Just because their symbol is in a pentagon doesn't mean they need to be covered in them.

The colors look awful, and the costume design itself is mediocre.

Seriously, what is up with the camel toe? Sometimes I'm embarrassed to like comics.

The art has a strong stylistic resemblance to Amanda Conner! I wonder if they deliberately chose Kevin Maguire for that reason?
