Synopsis for "Threads!"

In her civilian identity of Karen Starr, Power Girl heads a successful research and development corporation called Starrware Labs. In lieu of her own disjointed past, she finds comfort in the ability to cement herself in the lives of everyday people.

On her way home from the office, Karen witnesses an accident caused by a hypnotized motorist. She changes into her costume and tracks the man down, but is surprised to discover that he has no recollection of what he was doing or how he came to be here. As police cars arrive on the scene, a mysterious costumed adversary leaps out of the trunk of a squad car and attacks Power Girl. He calls himself the Force, but he is actually a pawn of a more elusive threat known as the Weaver. The Weaver watches the battle from within his own reality with great relish. The Weaver is actually a rival of Power Girl's grandfather, Arion. Power Girl manages to stun the Force with two electric cables then returns home.

At her apartment, her roommates tell her that they have been burglarized. Further, Karen's neighbor, Garth McGarth, was mugged. Karen goes to Garth's apartment to check on him.

Meanwhile, the Weaver continues to scheme against her.



Notes

  • At the time of publication, Power Girl's canonical Post-Crisis history had been altered, retroactively making her the granddaughter of Arion of Atlantis and not the cousin of the Earth-Two Superman as she had previously believed. This major alteration to the character's history was first established in Secret Origins (Volume 2) #11, but has since been repudiated as per the 2006 limited series Infinite Crisis. Currently, Power Girl's history has reverted back to its original Pre-Crisis origin.
