Main Story Karen's Story
Plot Synopsis: Birds of Prey (1998) #42
Special Power Girl spotlight issue. "Karen's Story" is written by Chuck Dixon with art by Glenn Fabry. Power Girl reluctantly becomes involved with the Birds of Prey again. Oracle calls on her to protect a Quraci presidential candidate who has become the target of terrorists controlled by a military madman. With refugees fleeing the war-torn country by ship, the candidate, Haiza Musharu, is under the protection of the U.S. Navy. But if there is to be any hope of democracy and peace for the Middle Eastern country, Power Girl must ensure Musharu has extraordinary, metahuman security.

Flying over the exodus of refugees, Power Girl is touched by the mass of humanity suffering in fear, poverty and hunger; driven from their homes by gun-toting fanatics. Power Girl must convince Musharu to let her protect her and it's not too long before the Quraci extremists make their move. Aiming two human-driven torpedoes, one at Musharu's ship and the other at the refugee ship, the Quracis hope to score a moral victory one way or the other. With no time to stop both, Power Girl is forced to make the horrible choice to let over a thousand souls die. But in the end, an assassin takes advantage of the diversion to make sure Musharu dies as well and all of the killing proves to be for nothing. Will Power Girl ever take a mission from Oracle again?
