    Completely chucks Convergence in favor of much-appreciated lunacy, as the Bug takes center stage. Plus: Matter-Eater Lad! Read Full Review

    This issue ends up being what is perhaps one of the better indicators of the impact of Convergence. While this follows along with the overall story line, it doesn't dwell on it, and instead focuses on the fun dynamic between Supergirl and Ambush Bug. It doesn't always work, but it works a lot better than the plot has so far in most of the Convergence tie-ins as well as the overall story. This is maybe a forgettable entry into a sub-par crossover, but it is also one of the more entertaining thus far, even if the story is far surpassed by the interaction of the characters.

    While I appreciate the lighter tone Giffen brings to this event tie-in, "Convergence: Supergirl: Matrix" should (or could) be a little more about Supergirl. As an Ambush Bug adventure, this is a wonderful, fun-filled and wacky adventure that doesn't take itself (or the grander-scale event) even remotely seriously. Add to that the sneak peek of a "Bat-Mite" story and Giffen, Green and crew offer readers hope that there might be opportunity for more lighthearted adventures in DC's post-"Convergence" future. If so, this creative team would be a top-notch choice for the irreverent romp that Ambush Bug demands -- maybe then the Matrix Supergirl can steal the spotlight from the Bug to return to the favor.

    I do not have a black heart and I really do like to laugh, but this issue made me want to strangle someone.  Keith Giffen uses this Event tie-in to poke fun at everyone he can and chuckle at the Event itself...but he forgot to write a good issue to go along with it.  This issue, like the first, was not good and made me cringe a whole lot more than laugh.  I think it's time for Giffen to retire Ambush Bug and update his book of jokes to at least catch up with Y2K.  Maybe by 2050, we'll get to 2015.

    Ambush Bug is less of a humorous element than he is an annoyance and distraction from the narrative. Read Full Review
