Not market wise, or in other media, or even in the DCU, but its possible that Power Girl has more comic reading fans than Super girl. I certainly like Powergirl more but there aren't people who have never read a comic wearing shirts with her name on it so that says it all

Different dimensions, different looks, different potential, different personality, different affiliations, different costumes, different experiences, different character

The Characters from an entirely different (ALTERNATE) dimension, just because she might share exact dna with super girl doesn't mean their the same character.

@Kal'smahboi: i was just woundering is superman more powerful than super girl. as in has more skill in the use of them or is over all more powerfull. Also in the new 52 superman is about 24-25 and superirl is about 18-20 years old.When she left kryton superman was a baby so she was his older cusion and then when she woke up superman was as a siad 24 - 25 years old so in a technycal sence is superman older than super gril so in other words would super girl no longer be his ''older'' cousion.?? Oh and in the new 52 superseris can he stay in space with out that breathing thing?

@Z3RO180: I actually haven't been reading Supergirl's book, so bear with me, but here are the usual answers to your questions: 
1. Superman is more powerful than Supergirl. He has been exposed to yellow sunlight longer and is more experienced with his powers. He's also a male of the species so, if they're anything like humans, that should help him too. 
2. Supergirl was born before Superman but she was in a state of stasis in her rocket for most of Kal-El's life. Therefore, she appears younger and has not aged, but is technically older than him.
3. What they've done in the past is say that yellow-sun powered Kryptonians cannot breathe in space, but can hold their breath for extended periods, but I don't know if that will remain true. It tends to shift from writer to writer. Also, their durability helps them not burst from their own internal pressure in the vacuum of space.
Did that help?

@Kal'smahboi: I'd think he is more powerful and should be but writers keep trying to make her more powerful.

Pre flashpoint When she first apeared it was said she absorbed energy better then he did.DCnU the writer said in ways she will be more powerful. She will have all his powers and more.

I think it''s stupid if she is more powerful.

@Dernman: I agree. You don't make a secondary, related character and make her more powerful than the original. Might as well kill him off. Even if she does gain powers that he can't, or if she becomes stronger, she'll never be able to take his place though. His adversaries fear him because of his strength, but his friends look up to him for a completely different reason :)
 
@Z3RO180: Invulnerability is a funny word to use, and the writers even do it. He isn't invulnerable, that's ridiculous. He is simply very very very durable. Anyone strong enough can hurt him and anything sharp and hard enough can cut him. As far as cutting his hair and shaving, they've come up with a couple creative ways for him to pull it off, considering scissors can't quite cut it (see what i did there?) Classically, he's used his own heat vision and a reflector.

i wouldnt be worried about other female kryptonians or superman overshadowing kara,its superboy she should be worried about.they are roughly the same age,but kon is her equal already,even with her SUPERcharged for 5 years he still is.she is one Parasite draining away from her being back at levels lower than kal was at the beginning of action comics,jumping around,not flying.

Wrong.

Superman > Supergirl. It's been proven.

No, Supergirl is more iconic and legendary than Powergirl.There was a vote on 3 characters and who gets to be in Injustice Gods Among Us.It was a choose between Batgirl,Supergirl, or Powergirl.Powergirl only won because of her stupid boobs.I was so mad that didn't pick Supergirl.

@moywar700: That strikes me as a rather dumb vote. All three characters would be fun to play as.

Different dimensions, different looks, different potential, different personality, different affiliations, different costumes, different experiences, different character

Agreed.

She is still Super Girl from another dimension

Based on that logic Superman and Ultraman are the same. Or Superman and Superboy Prime.

We can agree that Power Girl is Earth 2's Supergirl. However as characters of fiction they are different entitites. While they share similar origins and powers and a reasoning that they are the same being just from different dimensions. The choices these characters have made, their personality, even their look and the friends they hang out with make them different characters. That's why you can have both Supergirl and Power Girl in the same story.

The problem is that comics have so many characters in the same universe that are carbon copies of each other.
