    After two issues setting up the threat of Blue Earth, Amalak, and a mysterious Kryptonian plague, this issue nicely dials things back for a fairly emotional issue as Paige holes up in the Fortress of Solitude seeking answers. Read Full Review

    This Power Girl series continues to be one of the better character studies DC is publishing at the moment. Read Full Review

    Altogether, Power Girl #3 continues the story in a strong way with strong atmosphere and tone but manages to come across new issues that can be easily overcome as the series progresses. We can't wait to see where Williams and Pansica go with this story. Read Full Review

    Power Girl #3 gives hope that the REAL Power Girl may return. Williams gets to this point by getting inside Power Girl's head just a bit for the first time. There's still an uneven quality to the series, but this issue the best of it so far. Perhaps, the quote on the final page, "Paige is gone, means more than just what it seems to in the scene, maybe Paige Stetler IS gone and Karen Starr will be back by the end of this story arc, and with that the Power Girl fans love.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 29, 2023

    Power Girl #3 is going to lose more readers for two specific reasons. First, the plot about a Kryptonian "virus" gets almost no attention. Second, Paige's feelings and personality have been modified to the point where she's nearly indistinguishable from Supergirl, which is exactly the opposite of what should be happening. If Leah Williams didn't know anything about Power Girl, and DC Editorial wouldn't help her out, I'm sure somebody could have (should have) loaned her some back issues. Read Full Review

    He arrives to Power Girl now being possessed.  Well, I still don't understand the villain or it's goal. I don't like Omen. I don't quit understand this new direction for Power Girl. And I don't quite feel the angst.  Read Full Review

    So I am coming in hot with my hot-takes again. While this is not a good issue per say it once again has elements of good story writing in it, just poorly used.

    There are some touching moments like the end of the lions life, and the real struggles PowerGirl is undergoing. We do touch on the virus plotline a bit (maybe in reality a parasite plotline), but as so many have mentioned, this really isnt PowerGril. Something is deeply off with this writing. Also Power Girl really needs to break it off with Omen or at least move out and have the book portray her less. She doesn't do anything except attack rioters and protesters or give not funny jokes this issue.

    Superman is also written weirdly. Like kind of judgey and distan more

    Power Girl lacks the very thing mentioned in its title: power.

    Yet another issue of Leah Williams’ Power Girl with no Power in it. Seriously, the titular character is so dispirited and woeful it’s a shame to read as a longtime fan of the character. The issue is a wordy mess with way too much pages devoted to Omen in the beginning. Power Girl fans do not care about Omen, their friendship is rooted in trauma bonding and none of the characters act right for their friendship to seem genuine. The main plot this issue is Power Girl self-loathing and relating to a lion, it’s incredibly sluggish. Tie it in with the off characterization, it’s just not fun to read. This is a misery comic, Williams tries to use Omen as a comedic character, but the jokes don’t land. Superman is snide towards Power Girl, more
