BoP Affiliations:
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.
