Is Kara in danger? She’s run off with a boy claiming to be from her planet, but as we’ve already seen, it doesn’t look like the boy is good news…. he even looks like a bad boy! Well…maybe that’s the appeal.
***NON-SPOILERS and SUMMARY AT THE BOTTOM***
Like, What Now?
As much as I hate the word…like, it works coming from Kara, since she’s a teenage girl. Kara is bombarding Tan-on about Krypton. He claims to have been a scientist who was sent to Earth to be an ambassador of Krypton. But when he arrived, he was captured and experimented on. Now those same mad scientists have captured Kara. This time, there are two Kryptonians. Despite, Kara’s horror of watching Tan-on kill everyone on site, he did free her. Kara is finally seeing the true face of Earth’s newest Kryptonian. Now she’s off to find her friend.
Bad Boy, Whatcha Going to Do
To Kara’s horror Tan-On got to Dolly first, and is throwing her off a tower! Why? Because he wants Kara to align with him, and forget about these savage Earth people. Ta-On tries to restrain Kara, but this time she’s not going to let her friend die. With a swift punch and a courageous jump, she gets to Dolly, before Dolly gets to the ground.
Save the Town
Kara races to Tan-On to try and stop him from destroying the generator, therefore destroying the town. But he’s more trained then she is and even Super Girl, gets scared sometimes. With the help of her memories of love, Kara finds a new strength to save her town. After a vicious fight Kara comes out victorious, but she’s not for sure if she got rid of Tan-On for good. Afterwards her and Dolly are discussing her resemblance to Superman, and Kara’s new identify as Supergirl!
Supergirl, with the support of her best friend, finally meets up with Superman. Little does she know that Tan-On is very much alive and well, not only that, but Lex Luthor has also taken notice of her.
Sum it Up
It feels like it’s been a really long time since the last issue, considering that, it took me a minute to really get into this book. Once I got into the flow of it, I really enjoyed it. Yes, it is more juvenile that some of the other comics, but it’s also a lot of fun. You can’t help but root for Kara the whole way through. The art is colorful and vibrant as it should be, and the narrative feels natural. I can’t wait to see her develop into what we all already know she can be.
