She's Power Girl, Dammit.  
Most of you probably know that I am a comic book geek. What many of you probably don't know is that I'm also a big fan of fan films, thanks in part to spending my teen years around some serious film buffs. Combining these two interests leads me to find short subjects out there on the Intarwubs like the work of Chris .R. Notarile's Blinky Productions. A while back, I posted a link to his short subject, "Power Girl: The Classifieds," a look into the life of Power Girl when she is railroaded into taking a sabbatical from the hero biz and the inevitable hijinks of trying to be a metahuman in the work-a-day world.

Well, Notarile has produced a sort of sequel: "I'm Power Girl, Dammit." The fearful threat of Bizarro. The mind-numbing inanity of talking on a mobile phone about flirtatious nimrods. The delicate handling of a retard's inability to remember your name. All this and... that's about it. Still, amusing.

* Note: the video links load pages that immediately start streaming video. They're relatively safe for work, so long as your boss doesn't mind you watching silly short movies at your desk.
** Frighteningly, there is a blooper reel available at YouTube.
