The Sins of the Father

The fight continues between father and daughter about eh fate of Earth and Argo City. Quick Reminder that cyborg-dad has turned the mostly dead citizens of Argo City into cyborg creatures who need to kill people of Earth in order to power up their hearts. So you can see why Kara would be upset about this. BAM, a fed up Supergirl rams Cy-dad into Argo City, floating just above the skyline. But barley faltered, cy-dad is back for more. With the help of the D.E.O and Catco, signals are broadcasts through towers and cellphone that are disrupting the cyborg part of the citizens of Argo City. A saddened Kara watches as Argo City falls safely into the near by ocean, and once her loving father become defeated. Kara readjusts to normal life, but without losing hope that she can save her father.

The Confessional

I thought this was a great conclusion to this arc. Most of the issue was filled with great panels of kick ass action sequences. This was done without losing the heart of who Supergirl is. She’s the ever hopeful, morally good, open hearted character that fans cherish. For me it’s the almost naïve sweetness of Supergirl that draws me in. So similar to Superman, that trait is what I feel stands her apart. Steve Orlando did a really great job of capsulating  that. If you’ve followed my reviews, you know I’ve had an up and down relationship with this particular run. But the last few issues (especially this one) has really made me a fan, and want to continue following Supergirl on her adventures. The stylistic art also does a really great job of having this comic be a stand out. Even with very simplistic lines drawn the artists do well with showing expressions and emotions of the characters. I also love that her hair is brown when she’s in disguise, that makes so much more sense! Thank you creative team for doing that!
