Powergirl, Kara Rao, once known as Kara Zor-L, has discovered a supervillian's lair. Unknown to her, the evildoer was skilled in magicks, a Kryptonian weakness. She battled bravely at first, but he soon had her on her knees, weakened, while he delivered the knockout punch. Bleeding from her lip, she had collapsed unconscious onto the floor of the the lair's dungeon.
He clamped her into green Kryptonite manacles and chained her to the wall. Some time later, she awoke slowly, still groggy with the Green-K rays disorienting her.
"Heh, heh, heh. Not so tough now, are you, girlie?"
She spat blood at her captor and growled through clenched teeth. "Bite me."
Her tormentor smiled evilly. "Not a bad idea, sweetie. Maybe later? Surrender to me now! There's no way out for you."
She was damned if she was going to let this cretin see any fear from her. "Make no mistake, I will get out of this. That's why I have friends and you have minions!"
"But I happen to know for a fact that you didn't tell anyone, not even your friend Terra Atlee that you were going after me. Oh, and by the way...she's next, you know" And with that, he turned to go.
Kara pulled at her chains, but weakened from the Green K, could not break them. "Leave her alone, you bastard!"
My use of the name Kara Rao was inspired by my friend,
, who recently premiered the Kara Rao name for Powergirl in his alternate universe version of Powergirl in his "Quantum Quest" series here on dA. A magnificent storyline and artwork, stop by his page and enjoy his talent: [link]
