This issue did really well at combining both the current story of Supergirl fighting against Black Banshee, but also doling out interesting back-story, in particular about what life was like on Krypton and Kara’s relationship with her mother. This was done rather elegantly, with Kara being trapped in nightmares about her past by Black Banshee. We haven’t really been given much information about what Krypton was like in the New DCU, so anything about it is intriguing to me. The fight against the Banshee was very cool too, but then I’m a sucker for a giant dragon. Mahmud Asrar just keeps on improving with each issue, this was awesome to look at. I wonder if absorbing her father is what turns Siobhan into a villain? It certainly looks like that’s what’s going to happen. Who is the shape-shifting villain at the end working for do you think? That guy from the first arc who had all his legs blown off? I’m guessing it’s him, but it could very well be someone new, or the US Government.
