She's ready to deliver a positive message to young girls: "Everyone has the potential to be what they want to be," she said.
"Nothing against Wonder Woman, but I like how modest (Supergirl) is. It's not anything about sex appeal, it's not about anything but her strength and her drive and how motivated she is to make a difference for the better."

Superman Homepage reporter T.A. Ewart was granted a few minutes with John for an exclusive one-on-on video interview about his work on "Superman".
Romita: Oh boy, that's a good question, and it was such a long, agonizing process.
The very first promotional sketch I ever did was so bad. I had changed the face a little bit - it wasn't good enough - and interestingly enough, that first poor image got onto the internet. And I got such hate mail over that that I couldn't even get a chance to explain, that was just the very first thing I ever did! Calm down! I made a mistake!
And then I did another version, and Dan DiDio said, "Straighten his nose out! Not every character's an Italian, Romita! Give him a straight nose - this is Superman!"
So it was growing pains with the character. And I laugh now in retrospect. But yeah, I had to adjust a little and learn that the character had to look a certain way, but without copying anybody.
The adjustment period was just that. It wasn't drastic. I had a couple of bad sketches when I first did it, and then I got better as I got going.
Now I feel more comfortable. I'm getting used to it, and I'm actually having fun with it. The shape of the face... his nose is a little bit less perfect, because he got his clock cleaned by Ulysses.
I'm really enjoying the character much more.
