Power Girl & Huntress statue

Power Girl and Huntress from the "All Star Comics" era of the late 1970's define super hero for me. These were days when Earth Two was still the home of the Justice Society of America, before the original "Crisis". Other then Wonder Woman, these two ladies were who I wanted to emulate. Hot headed, strong Power Girl, cousin of Superman, knew how to stand up for herself and could kick some serious butt. Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle's daughter Helena followed in their footsteps with brains and beauty. She practiced law and was versed in martial arts, while acting like a lady.
These were the female characters that I still look to when I define my youth. I loved reading their stories. To this day, I still mourn the loss of Helena Wayne to history. Though a "Earth One" Huntress is on the scene in Birds of Prey, she hasn't replaced this character for me. I can at least feel vindicated that Power Girl is in the JSA and is in fact their current chairperson.
I took a picture of the statue where Jim and I placed it. It came in three pieces, and we very carefully put them together. Each is lovingly crafted and a tribute to the character. It is my Christmas present, and I couldn't ask for better.
Congrats! The statue looks pretty dang cool!!
Wonderful! One of the best eras for the Female form in comic book history IMHO.
cool statue, and even better as a Christmas gift :)
Lisa, thank you! I really love it. Two super heroes who look like they mean business! Just like us :-)
Swinebread, I totally agree. This statue is a dream come true.
Eaglewing- you said it. The one of us is coming out next, right?? :-)
I love it too. Absolutely awesome, and there should be more like it. Grats on getting yours.
Yeah, more "Lost Era DCU". They should make a series about it that would make people forget the awful "Frontier" series. I loved the original Huntress, I was really upset they changed her to a more Punisher-style origin then a super-hero family legacy. And Power Girl was always a fave, no matter how many times DC changed her. Best Christmas present EVER!
zhinxy- thank you so much! I feel very lucky to be able to have it. I put it in a place of honor, and it will stay there. :-)
Carl, AMEN. I agree so much. I would love a line of "All Star Comics" in the 1970's statues or figures. That would be amazing!
