* Issue #3 of the Connor/Palmiotti run. Ultra-Humanite has Power Girl strapped to a device that will cut off her head. He believes he has won due to having neutralized her strength and heat beams. Karen shows that she is far from just the busty dumb blonde so many people think she is and uses her freeze breath to stop the machine and smashes her way out of her restraints to give the Humanite a pummeling. Later, she and Atlee are able to save New York from the Humanite's plan through creative use of their powers.
