Tear Jerker / Hellsister Trilogy

Go To

  • Supergirl attends Clark and Lois' wedding. She's feeling sorry for herself... until she notices Power Girl, whose cousin died in the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
    For a second or two, there was a painful flash of loneliness. Dick Malverne, Jerro, Brainiac 5, maybe one or two others... none of them had been the right one for her. Would there ever be one? She wondered, fleetingly, if the Supergirl who had fought beside her in the Crisis was still single.
    But then she looked across the way to where another blonde girl was standing. This woman resembled her to an astonishing degree, but hid her features behind a black veil and stood, unspeaking, in a black dress.
    Her gaze rarely left Clark Kent's face. A month ago, this woman, as Power Girl, had seen her cousin die in the great battle against the Anti-Monitor.
    No matter what, Linda decided that she still had it better than the Kara Zor-L of Earth-Two.

She just wants to be a normal woman again.
