The moon colony built around Superwoman’s Fortress of Solitude is under siege! Shape-shifting aliens have come to this place of peace in search of Lynari, a refugee from their homeworld. It’s a bad move on the part of these intergalactic bad guys: if Kara Zor-El offers you sanctuary, there’s no way she’s going to let anyone get their monstrous hands on you. Let’s just hope this gamble is worth it, because Lynari’s secret-the one that got her in trouble in the first place-could mean bad news for everybody!

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 9, 2021

    This might be a two-issue event tie-in, but it's begging to be more. I don't know if Sauvage can do a monthly book, but she and Bennett need to be given the opportunity to do as many Supergirl titles as they want. So far, this is the first Future State title to come together into a classic. Read Full Review

    Marguerite Sauvage really is an amazing talent. She takes the script and does amazing things with it. Bennett writes a brave script too and honestly this turns out great by the end. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Duna Haller Feb 9, 2021

    The character exploration that this miniseries has crafted with Kara Zor-El arrives, after some punches here and there, to a beautifully thriving ending, with the majestically beautiful art highlighting every note. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 9, 2021

    When all is said and done, Future State: Kara Zor-El Superwoman #2 brings its story to an excellent conclusion. Karas journey, what she teaches, and what she learns along the way is a filling and meaningful tale. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Feb 9, 2021

    Kara's tale is brief in this Future State Multiverse. It is almost that of a glimpse into a legend. It was time for her to not be the second chair or even the third…but a time to have her featured solo for what she brings to the DC Universe! Well done! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Feb 9, 2021

    Kimara wants the Starfall Jewel from Lynari as atonement for the murder of her family members. As Lynari is under Karas protection, Kimara finds herself in battle with Superwoman. As we learn the history of Lynaris people, a new side of Kara emerges. In order to prevent a catastrophe, Lynari must take control of her situation and face Kimara head on.The Story: Marguerite Bennett crafts a tale of the opposing emotions of despair and hope. Superwoman becoming the catalyst of a significant change is inspiring, yet sad. It gives the reader a sense of humanitys struggle to endure hardships while maintaining joy.Bright, colorful, pastel panels fill this issue. Its a dizzying array of pinks, purples, and light blue. There is definitely an airy, feminine whimsy that belies the seriousness of the subject. It makes for an interesting juxtaposition. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Feb 15, 2021

    Kara Zor-El Superwoman is one of the books that I was looking forward to, being a fan of most of Supergirl's incarnations. On first glance, the book could thought of as too different from the majority of DC's products or even previous Supergirl series. But upon reflection, this little two issue story continues the vibe of who Kara Zor-El is. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 9, 2021

    This glimpse of a potential future for Superwoman felt like it was lacking something whether a credible threat, greater focus on the evolution of its title character or just the overall rusher flow of the story. Kara's post Earth stories could make for engaging reads, but this mini-special doesn't do enough to sell that potential. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Kara Zor-El Superwoman #2 wraps up the Future State version of Kara Zor-El in a way that makes Kara sadder and pitiable more than the hero she's always been. The art oscillates between gorgeous and blinding, and the story, for better or worse, is done. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 12, 2021

    This being labeled a Kara Zor-El book seems like false advertising. This angry, jealous, villainous character isn't the Supergirl I want to read. Read Full Review

    The comic was meant to end on a very bittersweet note, but I feel only sadness after reading it. Not even because I particularly cared in what I'm reading - no, in fact I was pretty much detached from it and not invested at all. It's because I feel like I just wasted my time completely. Two issues worth of practically nothing.

    Kara is one of the more upbeat, lively characters DC has in its roster, and yet she's a hollow, flat and bland protagonist here, both personality and design-wise, which is quite an accomplishment, believe me. When you fail to write a compelling character arc, you can at least make them visually interesting, or the other way around. Here... there's nothing.

    Gotta feel sorry for Kara, because as I more

    I don't have much to say about this issue. I just wish that Marguerite Bennett was a better creator. She's actually very local to where I grew up. So local that we went to some of the same schools. I wish I could look at her work and have some sort of pride about what my ilk has accomplished in this medium that I love. Instead, I read her work knowing that I'm going to get a boring comic, and that's the worst type of comic. I really wish I wasn't so harsh; I don't want to be harsh. However, I can't pretend that I enjoyed reading this.

    You know when you're reading a book and you get to the end of the page only to realize you haven't actually been retaining any of the material? Yeah, this comic was like that, only I couldn't bring myself to go back and try again. I honestly don't know what happened, and while I feel like I didn't give this comic a proper chance, I'll still be able to sleep soundly tonight.

    Borra esto, es muy sad. :(

    Escribiré esta review en español para expresar mejor mis opiniones, sentimientos sobre este cómic.

    Si bien me parece genial que al final se haya superado esa trama sin sentido de Kara sintiéndose triste por no ser Superman. Sino reconociendo que ella es la única e inigualable Supergirl, y que ese es su nombre o su manto. Que los mantos no existen, y cada uno puede formar su propia persona, su propio superheroe, nombre de superheroe, alterego. Y que cada uno puede ser grandioso o grandiosa siendo uno mismo, sin querer ser otro. Y como ella al final acepto la luz y continuar ayudando a la gente. Todo esto fue un elemento acertado en el cómic.

    Igualmente, el arte me parece bueno more

    This one was rough and very forgettable. Nice art, but that's pretty much it, as even it doesn't help how much of a mess the story was.

    Hellblazer Mar 24, 2021

    This issue insults SUPERMAN's legacy by trying to say that Superman stole the limelight from Kara and that Kara should have had all that love and respect Clark received; Kara was only to be the protector of Clark and become a superhero though she does achieve success. That's a comic driven by a strong feminist agenda and if it is not the case then, unfortunate it does look as one. Poor writing and absolute garbage.
