Action Comics Covers Celebrate Power Girl's Return to DC's A-List

Nov 18, 2022 · 24


Power Girl stars in cover art for Action Comics #1051, which is set to kick off the yearlong Dawn of DC event.

DC announced Action Comics #1051 kicks off a yearlong event called Dawn of DC, which follows the events of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and Lazarus Planet. Variant cover art by David Nakayama and Sergio Davila for Action Comics #1051 highlights Power Girl and her role in an upcoming DC storyline. Power Girl will also star in Lazarus Planet, thus returning the character -- who was created by Gerry Conway and Ric Estrada and first appeared in 1976's All-Star Comics #58 -- to DC's A-list after she's largely been absent from the publisher's continuity in recent years.

At New York Comic Con, DC announced Action Comics #1051 would begin offering fans three separate stories in each issue. The synopsis reads, "Following the bombshell events of Action Comics #1050, the world’s relationship with Superman is forever changed, the upper limits of his supercharged powers have yet to be reached, and the House of El’s transformation of Metropolis, led by Steel, has begun. But Lex Luthor has found the perfect instrument with which to undo everything Superman is working to achieve: Metallo, whose hatred of Superman is matched only by his hatred for Luthor himself."

Power Girl Heads to Lazarus Planet

DC previously announced Power Girl will join Poison Ivy, Batman, Cyborg, Damian Wayne and more heroes to try and save the world in Lazarus Planet: Alpha #1, which releases January 10, 2023. Written by Mark Waid and Gene Luen Yang with art by Riccardo Federici, Billy Tan and more, the synopsis reads, "Following the explosive (literally) events of Batman vs. Robin #4, the Lazarus Volcano has erupted, spewing dangerous and transformative chemicals into Earth’s atmosphere! As these Lazarus clouds rain down upon the planet, people across the globe begin to develop strange new abilities, watch their already-extraordinary abilities change, and witness a whole host of chaos unlike anything the DCU has experienced before! It’s up to Damian Wayne to put out the distress call for whoever can still hear it: come to the ruins of the Hall of Justice and help save the world! Poison Ivy, Power Girl, Cyborg, Batman, and more answer the call…but why could the fate of all life as we know it rest in the hands of…Monkey Prince?"

Power Girl is also mentioned in the solicitation text for Lazarus Planet: Assault on Krypton #1, which releases Jan. 17, 2023, from writers Nicole Maines, C.S. Pacat, Frank Barbiere and Leah Williams and artists Skylar Patridge, Scott Godlewski, Sami Basri and Marguerite Sauvage. It reads, "With the world in chaos and Lazarus raining from the skies, the Earth’s protectors from Krypton are hit hard. In this collection of epic vignettes from in and around Lazarus Planet, we’ll see heroes transformed, secrets revealed, and power unleashed. Can Power Girl free herself from the out-of-control Omen? Will Dreamer’s visions guide our heroes to the path of victory? Can Mercy Graves survive the transformation she’s undergone? And will Jonathan Kent ever be the same again?"

Action Comics #1051 is written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Dan Jurgens and Leah Williams, features art by Rafa Sandoval, Lee Weeks and Marguerite Sauvage, cover art by Dan Mora and variant cover art by Steve Beach, Jorge Fornés, Davila, Sandoval, Nakayama, Weeks and Jack Herbert. The issue releases Jan. 24, 2023, from DC.
