Supergirl #34 - she really HAS changed

Postby IvCNuB4 » Sat Aug 23, 2014 5:31 pm

Supergirl #34
"The Girl Who Fell To Earth". A SUPERMAN -DOOMED tie-in! Kara must deal with the fall-out of the green Kryptonite skies over a dead Earth, and the horrors still to come!
Written by: Tony Bedard
Art by: Karl Moline, Jose Marzan Jr


Bedard kept teasing that after her short stint as a Red Lantern, Kara would come out changed. He wasn't blowing smoke. Just in this issue alone she is more like her pre-reboot self. The anger is gone and in it's place we have a confident young girl, using her intelligence and powers to help others even if it means risking danger to herself. And since Superman is currently off-planet she has taken the task of being Earth's Kryptonian protector despite the bad wrap Superman is facing right now due to the Doomsday events.

Not sure if this is just this Moline's homage but her hair and sleeves even look more pre-reboot now. This is a welcome change and one she really deserves !

Who cares about the sleeves, get rid of the stupid crotch panel and kneeless boots. I blame Lee and his obsession with a million lines. Simplify man.

Some people can pull off the complex costumes, but Lee isn't one of them. Less is more for Kryptonians especially.

I like the crotch panel. But her knees should be blue or yellow to make the boots/leggings more real. Maybe cover her thighs too.

Baby steps, my friend. Baby steps. It's a frickin' huge leap forward that they finally straightened out her personality and her reason for being. :D

Next they should kill off Kara's father, so the one true Cyborg Superman can return.

Sorry, I was at work.

Supergirl #34 was OK. But here is the problem. When Bedard came on board and immediately started the Red Daughter crossover with Red Lanterns, which was so transparently a stunt that his claims to the contrary are laughable, the rationalization they used for doing this whole thing with the Red Ring was that it would "help Kara work out her rage issues." If you didn't read Red Daughter and just read #34, you'd think, wow, it really did help.

But in the Red Daughter crossover, NOTHING HAPPENED to help Kara get through her rage. She stayed pretty much the same for 9/10ths of it and then on the last 2 pages of the final issue (Supergirl #33), all of a sudden, ding, rage cured. She didn't go through any sort of development process to have this happen. She didn't confront her rage or work through it in a realistic way. She just magically got rid of it.

So yeah, her personality seems better in this issue, but in a way so what? Bedard has ONE more issue of regular Supergirl (not counting the Future's End dreck that is coming up next month), and then Bedard is gone and Mike Johnson returns along with another co-writer. Will they keep going in the "non rage" direction that Bedard has done for one whole issue (or two if he does it in #35 too)? Or will they go back to Rage Girl, which to some degree Johnson started in the first place (she was rage-girl right from the start in issue 1, punching before thinking, and has been that way right up until this issue).

I appreciate that Bedard has finally changed her but nothing in the previous 8 or so issues that he's done has led to this. He just snapped his fingers and changed things.

That was a great issue and I love the character change. The promise of a relationship with her new 'boyfriend' is also welcome.
