For me, Jaime Eason has the perfect Power Girl "look". Athletic and toned, yet still feminine.
Just to settle the costume issue, she had the peek-a-boo hole in her first appearance...
Although they couldn't keep the consistency of whether the cape string went around her underarm on one side or around the neck...
I would blame Wally Wood (the man did have a drinking problem that was well documented)... as well as her busty proportions.
They changed her costume after her initial All Star Comics "Super Squad" appearance to this...
Losing the circular hole, high neck and cape string.
And that is the way she appeared in subsequent appearances...
Alex Ross and other currrent artists are simply going back to her Original 1st appearance costume.
PG in the JLA/JSA crossover days...
Founding member of Infinity Inc.
PG in her eighties miniseries (Post Crisis Arion's Grand-daughter phase)

Her 1st appearance in the contemporary JSA
And finally, the Return of the high neck and cleavage circle...

Of coarse there were a half dozen different artists going through JSA around this time, so citing who actually brought back the costume is hard to say... for all we know it could have been Geoff Johns or David Goyer who requested it. Or Editorial.
As someone else mentioned Alex Ross brought back this costume much earlier in the pages of Kingdom Come during the nineties.
One explanation about why this costume came back as she joined the JSA.
I think her super power is the ability to walk upright and not have two black eyes when she flies !!
Dammit Jim!!! I'm a doctor not a forklift!!!
Always love a good Power Girl thread---if those Jaime pix don't
represent a great Power Girl, I don't know what would, eh screw it,
I just think she's great regardlesss!
I like her JLU look. Has Mattel done a figure of her yet? For either of their DC lines?
