I heavily editted the paragraphs about her series (which was referred to as though it were still ongoing) and her New 52 status quo (which referred to something which has already happened as upcoming). I tried to phrase them as "timelessly" as I could (referring to things in a vague past tense) but left in the most of the description of her cancelled "old 52" book because I think it's still recent enough to be worth mentioning at the time I'm posting this (which could change as time goes by).

Anyone who adds new information as it comes up, please remember that Examples Are Not Recent.

(This entire page may need to be overhauled at some point, as the New 52 version of the character is significantly different than the old one, which is the one the page describes at the time I'm writing this.)

Maybe a mention the Non-Stripperific New 52 costume?

This is a trope applying to a single event, and that event doesn't take place in the Power Girl series. It's not frequent enough to be a part of the character herself (only one writer was tasteless enough). Since it doesn't apply to the title OR the character, it doesn't belong here.

  • Underwear of Power: Her normal costume is a pretty standard superheroine outfit, but Terra has not yet grasped the importance of always having your costume handy and one time she was forced to go into battle wearing nothing but adorable lady-bug underwear when she and Power Girl were attacked while out at the movies.

This admits up-front it's not an example. Also, this same event is on the page multiple times under different tropes with almost word-for-word entries; not sure what to do about that, since in the other cases it is technically correct.

The picture given seems to have given her Hartman Hips. While, in real life, a well-endowed woman would often have a wider frame and stronger leg and back muscles, women with the Most Common Superpower are usually drawn with fairly straight hips and thighs.

In most comics, yes, but Power Girl is (usually) drawn with more curves, especially in her current series (Of course, other series do slim her down).

Should the tropes pertaining to Power Girl as a character and Power Girl the ongoing series be separated? As it stands, her trope page is a little awkward to read due to the two mixing together, imho.

That's actually a fair point, and one of the reasons that articles are often split into separate "Series" and "Character" pages, but I believe that's usually for when the page grows too long and becomes cumbersome trying to include everything. I think as it is we can keep it al in one section, but maybe just clarify each example a bit better.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
