The second meeting between Supergirl and Superman is a lot more civil than the first one, but no less interesting. Kal and Kara meet up at the Fortress Of Solitude, and a lot of intriguing stuff from Supergirl’s origin and past is teased. For some reason this version of the character was stuck orbiting the sun before she crash-landed on Earth. Not only does this explain why she had her superpowers straight away, but it also provides a mystery. Why was she orbiting the Sun? Who put her there? And whilst it looks like Supergirl herself won’t be finding that out anytime soon, we the readers will in #0, which for this title at least, is well-timed. After that pow-wow with her cousin, Kara heads off to the ocean to find the missing piece of her crashed spaceship, and on the way fights some freaky deep-sea eels. This fight was well-drawn by Asrar, and I continue to be impressed with the inner voice Green and Johnson have given Supergirl here, we as readers are right with her, feeling her doubt, really feeling her argument with herself, and it’s effective. In the end, the spaceship debris was a trap set by the villain of the book’s first arc, Simon Tycho. The fight with him in #13 should be fun, could Supergirl finally have an arch nemesis all to herself?
