In all honesty the explanation they gave in that JSA Classified arc was fan-freaking-tastic.  Power Girl went through so much with writers and creators trying to shoehorn her into the Post-Crisis DCU that the simple explanation of, "You know what, she's the cousin of the Earth-2 Superman who survived the Crisis" worked so well for me.

I mean why the heck not?

PG is a BAD copycat of Supergirl, she should be killed during the "Candor" arc.

Power Girl would have been interesting if she were actually the daughter of the Earth-2 Superman, which was what I originally thought she was when I first saw her in Crisis On Infinite Earths.

I like Powergirl. She does have her place in the DCU.
They make her an adult Supergirl, but change her a appearance a little bit (Haircut, big knockers).

For awhile, after Crisis. She was the only "supergirl" for along time until DC tried several incarnations of Supergirl until they decided to break down and "reinvent" the Superman's long lost cousin story in Superman/Batman issues.

She is going somewhere. Let's see what the writers have in store for her when they "reinvent" this Earth-Two thing. She might wind up going back there, who knows.

Then you'd have to ask yourself which blonde Superman briefly hooked up with.  I doubt you'd get Power Girl out of dark-haired Supes + Lois, and I doubt wigs and coloring work on her Hair of Steel.

Maybe the blonde-ness is a sort of red sun effect from vacationing in Kandor?

I think I expected Power Girl to be a daughter of E2 Supes as well when I first saw her in the 70s, since all of the modern JSA seemed to be adult versions of sidekicks, etc.  It makes more sense.  The mystery of her parentage would be a great aspect of her character.

As noted in her origin story, the Earth-2 Kandor never got shrunken and stolen---it went boom along with the rest of the Earth-2 universe's Krypton ("Krypton-2", I suppose)... so no bottled city for Earth-2 Supes to keep in his mountain retreat near Metropolis... :-)
