Part One: The Interview.

Transcript –

Interviewer - Hannah DuPres.

  “Thank you to our sponsor, Luther Corp… Now, welcome one and all to our exciting, open as never before and supremely sexy interview with the one and only metaverse Kryptonian Kara-Zor-L, better known to our readers as The Power Girl. In this eye-opening interview, Miss Zor-L goes all out, revealing all; not only on her dating life, but also the kinds of complications and difficulties of sexual intercourse with someone who, as in her case, is something like a ten-thousand times as strong as the average Human. But before we start, a brief word from another one of our sponsors.”

  “Thank you to our sponsor, Starr Industries… This interview is taking place on the rooftop terrace of the famous Wayne Plaza skyscraper, in Metropolis. Which has been secured for a private one-on-one with the stunning and famously voluptuous superhero. I’m sitting on a plush leather recliner with a martini alongside me beside an Olympic size heated swimming pool, basking in the glorious summer sunshine and surrounded by a delightfully aromatic plethora of potted shrubs and flowering orchids. And I’m recording the introduction while sipping martini, waiting impatiently for Ms Zor-L’s arrival. And while we await her arrival a message from our sponsor…”

  “Thank you to our sponsor, Veidt Enterprises… And, I believe… I think I can see her approach now. A speck of shadow against the cloudless azure of a glorious north Atlantic sky. More detail comes into focus as she approaches. A dance of short, golden, honey-blonde hair swirls around a stunningly beautiful visage. She isn’t dressed in her costume, surprisingly. And that infamous figure had been poured into a, frankly shameless, and yet fabulous white tube top (no cleavage window), and skin tight jeggings, the colour of which perfectly matches that of the summer sky framing her. And perhaps as a little wink-worthy tribute to her crimson cape she is wearing crimson-coloured sneakers, or perhaps boat shoes, with white soles and blue laces.”

[Power Girl lands on the rooftop with a grin and takes the glass of Martini waiting for her. Hurried off microphone greetings the Hannah DuPres begins her introduction].

  “She has reportedly dated the likes of Keanu Reeves, Ryan Gosling and Chris Hemsworth. She has had numerous songs written about her, from HipHop stars such as Chris Brown, Eminem and Fifty Cent, to contemporary rockers like Cold Play, Kasabian and Little Mix. She's been portrayed on screen by Ashley Hinshaw in the CW TV show, Gemma Atkinson in the infamously erotically charged movie, and not forgetting Christina Hendricks' most recent eye-popping and decidedly sassy portrayal in the critically acclaimed HBO miniseries.”

[Laughter as Power Girl takes a seat on the offered recliner across from the interviewer, gratefully accepts a second martini].

  “My first question to the lovely and delightful Kryptonian bombshell, following introductions and a few moments of relaxing and idle chitchat with our martinis, related to her favourite on-screen portrayal of herself.”

Power Girl:

  “I really loved Christina's look and the sassiness in her performance, wish I was a bit more like her, actually. Though I also enjoyed Atkinson too, she was the most realistic in one sense. Apart from the accent, I feel she needed a bit more work on the US accent. Though, having spent time in the UK, I do love that northern twang of hers.”

HDP:

  “You've dated some of the most handsome and eligible bachelors in Hollywood. What are the pitfalls you’ve come across?”

PG:

  “That they’re human, to be straight forward. Let me just make it clear, all the human guys I've spent time with have been great, lovely, sweet, thoughtful, caring guys, very loving and affectionate. The issue is entirely physical. It’s actually surprisingly dangerous to get physical for Humans, at least with a Kryptonian like me. I hug you too hard and your ribs turn into a thousand little knives that can make ribbons of your internal organs. I shake your hand too vigorously and every bone is crushed to powder and I rip your shoulder out of its socket. It took me a long time, and it was a really sad day when I decided I couldn’t date human men anymore. It was too much of a risk, too dangerous for them. And to be a little more graphic, I couldn’t let loose either. Not their fault at all. Just a cold reality.”

HDP:

  “Graphic is what were all about at Maniacal Pink magazine. And if we can get really intimate… does that extend to sex?”

PG:

  “Well, it’s pretty much the same issue. If you make me cum and there’s something inside me, fingers, a cock… my vaginal muscles clamping down or even quivering in pleasure is so OP that, if you’re human, you'll suffer real life-changing damage. And it isn't something I have any conscious control over, it’s just automatic psychosexual response, controlled by the limbic cortex, that’s the lizard part of the brain. So, it isn’t like I can control it at all, unlike hugging or shaking hands. Same goes for dildos of course, you wouldn't believe the number of vibrators I've gone through.”

HDP:

  “I’m imagining the difficulties as we speak.”

PG:

  “I had a pretty distressing adolescence, dating-wise, when I was growing up too. Unfortunately, there were 'incidents' on my own Earth before I really grasped the reality of it. Of course, none of those people are alive to tell the tale... Just to clarify, because my universe was destroyed, not because I killed the poor guys.”

HDP:

  “I see, I appreciate the clarification. So, how do you manage an active and healthy sex life, if its fraught with so many ‘super-obstacles’. Obviously, I assume you don't have any issues attracting suitors?”

PG:

  “Oh, 'suitors'? You getting all old fashioned 'Southern Belle' on me, are you?” 

[mutual laughter and more martini cocktails].

PG:

  “Well, no I don't have any issues in that sense. And I try to be open and broadminded about guys. I'm not going to eliminate everyone who’s shorter than I am, or if they make under a certain amount of money. Or reject someone because they don't measure up to the Ryan Gosling’s and Chris Hemsworth’s of the world. If someone comes onto me, or tries on a line, or even woos me like some old-fashioned southern gentleman, flowers and a rhyme in a greetings card… These are Metahuman’s I’m referring to now, I essentially have to check up on the Justice League’s files to see if there're any compatibility issues. And to clarify again, that's strengths and weaknesses, not the size of their junk.”

HDP:

  “Have you considered having children?”

PG:

  “Of course, way into the future, maybe. But there are, again, compatibility issues. I know Humans and Kryptonians are genetically compatible, though again there would be issues with conception, I know of half-Human half-Kryptonian children that have been successfully born - the details are classified of course - and pregnancy and birth were all normal and problem free, but conception was a little tricker and had to be completed through artificial insemination.”

HDP:

  “How so?”

PG:

  “Well, it’s the reverse of the issue I mentioned before, about the physical effects of orgasm, but think of a male Kryptonian, ejaculation, and the particular muscle groups that officiate that. They're superhuman, therefore, erm… the physical power or pressure of ejaculation of Kryptonian semen into a human woman's uterus can be every bit as damaging as being shot by a bullet... I'm sure you understand.”

HDP:

  “Ouch!”

PG:

  “Quite. ‘Faster than a speeding bullet’ in more ways than just the obvious.”

HDP:

  “Are there any famous name drops of superheroes you've dated? Just so we can get the idea of the level of super power you have to look for.”

PG:

  “Well, I don't think it would be very fair to mention names without their permission, these are loving relationships that ended, and sometimes it was very painful for both parties. But to give you a general idea, there are other Kryptonians of course...”

HDP:

  “I take it you aren't referring to Superman?”

PG:

  “He's my father... and before you ask Superboy is his clone, so he’s out too...”

HDP:

  “Your father? Wait, I understood he was your cousin.”

PG:

  “He's that too, when I landed on my own Earth, from my own Krypton, it was Kal-L who brought me up. Your Superman is my interdimensional cousin. And he’s younger than the Kal-L who raised me. Obviously, we have a very different relationship. And obviously he's not someone I could or would ever sleep with. No matter what Tattler and National Enquirer like to assert.”

HDP:

  “Yes, those pieces, by a bunch of hacks I might add, were nothing less than an embarrassment.”

PG:

  “Maybe to the boy-scout, not to me. He's so easily embarrassed, I don't care what people say about me. The people I care about know who I am and those are the important people.”

HDP:

  “So, you don't care in the slightest what people say about you? Plenty has been said, both by misogynists and radical feminists on both sides of the fence, over the years...”

PG:

  “This about my costume's cleavage window? I feel like I've explained my motivations enough on that subject. Unless you insist. I can repeat myself... I guess?”

HDP:

  “No, I think like you say, you've made your position clear, and we can always insert a clip or link to a previous interview.”

 [clip plays – edited for time].

HDP:

  “So, as specific or general as you feel comfortable with, what things turn you on in a guy?”

PG:

  “I have to say, though I’m not proud of it, I do have a weakness for the 'bad boy' type. Which is not good and I know it. I try to get together with nice guys and I love nice guys, they’re so sweet and attentive, but still, a bad boy can still come along and totally knock me for six…. In fact, if Darkseid hadn't turned out to be a world enslaving, universe destroying, genocidal monster, I might have let him take me out once or twice.”

[Power Girl’s sudden grin reveals the joke behind her statement].

  “I’m making progress, I wouldn’t have been able to joke about that psychotic tyrant a few years ago…”

HDP:

  “I’m very glad to hear it.”

[Awkward laughter].

HDP:

  “Mentioning no names then, are you dating at the moment?”

  “No. There was a guy in the UK. But even for those of us who can fly around the world in minutes, long distance relationships are hard. Sometimes we get together for a day or a night here or there, but all too often an emergency crops up on one side of the globe or another and we have to cut our date short and zip away. It’s very sad and quite upsetting, but you know, the Earth comes first, and all that.”

HDP:

  “A real shame.”

PG:

  “Quite.”

HDP:

  “Perhaps we could discuss the reality of having two of you, two Kryptonian Kara’s occupying the same spacetime. Do the two of you get along?”

PG:

  “Yes, for the most part. It was hard for me, at first, to find a way of feeling like I fit in here, that I wasn’t just literal surplus to requirements. It was a big part of the reason to remove myself from the ‘Superman’ family. Not to call myself Superwoman or something, not to dress in the same kind of costume. Not to wear the House of L crest. The Superman ‘S’ as you call it. Even though it’s as much mine, so to speak, as it is anyone else’s. My father and Superman’s father being brothers and all.”

  “But to answer your question, yes Kara and I get mostly get along well. We’ve had different upbringings, so we are different people, I’m more level headed but more ruthless in the way I fight crime. Kara is more hot-headed and, to be frank hormonal, but she tries to follow Cousin Kal’s ‘boy-scout’ moral code more closely that I do.”

HDP:

 “Can you explain the physical difference between the two of you?”

PG:

  “You referring to my tits again?”

HDP [Nervous laughter]:

  “Not… exclusively… there is only around a decade between you, and yet. How can I put this…?”

PG:

   “Carefully.”

HDP [more nervous laughter]:

  “Supergirl is more svelte than you. Slender in her build. Sinuous.”

PG:

  “And me?”

HDP:

  “Bombastic, knockout, buxom, voluptuous, statuesque….”

PG:

  “If you say ‘Rubinesque’ I’m going to cut you in half with my heat vision.”

[more laughter. From one - good natured, from the other - frantic and nervous.]

PG:

  “To answer your question. We don’t actually know, but I have a suspicion it could be how our parent’s DNA was divvied up, in our respective universes. There are differences in our universes no matter how close they are. That’s the nature of the multiverse. I may have a little more of our mother’s DNA, this universe’s Kara might have a touch more of our father’s. Mother, Allura In-Z, was also a chesty lady, buxom, bombastic, voluptuous. That could account for it.”

HDP:

  “One final question, on a couple of occasions you have mentioned Superman’s moral code, in so many words. And you’ve good naturedly referred to him and ‘the boy-scout’ would you care to elaborate a little more on that moral code and how you respond to it?”

PG:

  “That’s actually a difficult one to put into words. And to be honest it runs the risk of alienating a certain demographic of fans. But that’s the world we live in, isn’t it?”

HDP:

  “I would say so, very much so.”

PG:

  “Well, it’s well documented that Superman will not willingly take a life. There have been occasions when through accidental consequences innocents have died, and this sad reality has been tossed around in certain ‘publications’ with agendas of their own, more than once. “The untold horrors behind ‘collateral damage’” was one of the more famous headlines. I can tell you that Superman mourns each and every one of these poor, unfortunate individuals. People die every day through accidents, incidents, even their own stupidity. It’s a simple fact of life. No superhero sets out to take a life or end a life, not even the kinds of world threatening people that we pit ourselves against. And that’s the thing. We might not be ‘only human’ but we aren’t Gods. We can’t see the future and we can’t change the past.

  “Where Superman and I disagree is in the details. I’m of the opinion that some people simply are too dangerous to allow to keep on living. Serial killers, serial rapists, hyper-intelligent criminal masterminds. These are all the career types, or psychotic types who won’t stop no matter how many times they are imprisoned. And how often, especially the masterminds, do these individuals escape incarceration? And let’s be honest they escape a lot. Generally, the vast majority of the time, innocent people die as a result of that unintentional freedom. I feel like it’s better to ensure those kinds of people can no longer cause harm to the general population.”

  “Of course, the problem is, where is the line drawn? What about CEOs of companies who make millions, even billions, in profit from the suffering of the poor, the mentally ill, the desperate. Or from wildlife. Without thought or care for those people or the environment. How about slavers, people traffickers? Who deserves to live and die.”

HDP:

  “I guess it’s one of those age-old political questions that has been batted about for hundreds of years.”

PG:

  “My father, back in my own universe, used to argue that everyone should live, that we shouldn't be taking on the responsibility to make the decision of whose deserves to live and to die. Everyone deserves a second chance. And that we Kryptonians aren't morally superior to you Earthlings, so we shouldn't put ourselves in a position when we appear to be taking that very route.”

HDP:

  “Wise man, maybe?”

  “Oh, absolutely, the wisest. And I more or less agree with him, but I have a little bit more of a temper and I'm that little bit more impulsive and emotional. I don't have that calm, calculating, thinking my father had and sometimes I just snap and someone dies. Someone that, in the moment, is deserving, or too dangerous to suffer incarceration with that constant possibility of escape.”

HDP:

  “But what gives you that authority? Why do you get to make that decision? Instinct? Superpowers? What about the law? What about due process? Trials? Innocent until proven guilty? Juries of one’s peers?”

PG:

  “We call ourselves superheroes, but were really just vigilantes. Taking the law into our own hands. We’re already outside the law in doing what we do. We’re already guilty of crimes. We choose to put ourselves outside the law. In fact, it isn't even if these individuals are deserving or not. It’s simply the fact that if they're dead they can never commit an atrocity again. Whether that’s justice or warranted, I'm not able to answer, because in that moment I'm ruled by my emotions. I'm not calm or calculating. I just react. And, essentially, the outcome is what it is. These are bad people. The worst of the worst. I don't lose sleep over it.”

HDP:

  “Strong words to finish on and something to think about. Kara Zor-L, also known as Power Girl. I thank you for your time.”

PG:

  “Thank you, Hannah.”
