The Supergirl range will be fronted by five-time gymnastics Olympic medalist Nastia Liukin, backed by JCPenny, and follow other recent initiatives; Supergirl Jam, an all-girls action sports competition and music festival, and the inaugural Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup, to honor the accomplishments of young, rising female gymnasts. More 'girl power' after the Jump.

One glaring ommission from the list: an actual FFVII comic, complete with Sephiroth of course. Jump
- Speaking of Final Fantasy fans, did you see in the full DC solicitations for Wonder Woman #600, the milestone issues art team includes one Joe Madureira? The guy whose 'east meets west' illustration style defined the 90's X-Men, on an issue of Wonder Woman (no doubt complete with a handful of gods and demons) could be just the kick in the pants needed to get new readers on the book. For how 'Joe Mad!' draws Diana, well just check this out;
