Former member of the Justice League Europe (and of the pre-Crisis Earth 2 Justice Society of America for whom
the character was originally created as an alternate version of Supergirl). Joined the current JSA as Black Canary's replacement
Oracle called on her for help at the end of BoP #12 and she later assisted Oracle and Canary on that escapade (Apokolips) and a few others. The implication was that when superpowered help was needed or desirable for the situation at hand — rather than having to scramble for backup as Oracle had to do in ish #11 (when Joe Gardner nearly killed Canary) — Powergirl acted as the metahuman on call. Her mysterious prior working relationship with Oracle was revealed in BoP #42,
explaining why she was often hostile in her dealings with Oracle.
