Making Alan Scott a gay who cheated two women into marriage is beyond disgusting.🤢 This is a superscum, not a superhero. All I can see is the misogyny of the writer.

Are you serious with that last part? " Straight people don't know they're straight until they've had sex"? Lol. Like that happened, EVER. :))

Psycamorean - Mar 5, 2021

My point was that straight people don't have to have sex to realize that they are attracted to the opposite gender, and the same is true of gay people and their attraction to same gender. Maelstron thinks that gay people must have sex to figure out that they are gay. Maelstron is wrong. Maybe that clears it up for you.

The art was some of the worst drawing I've ever seen !!! I think a toddler could've drawn it better while wearing a blindfold. Good lord it was bad.

Don't understand the idea that someone isn't allowed to like art because that's how "some people like to draw". Do you like everything you see, hear and taste because that's how some people like to do it? It's subjuctive and everybody can like or dislike whatever they want!

XOS Ch. 9: I really like the dynamic between the Braddock siblings. Its fun. I was initially confused about the mutant Captain Britain Corps. but I guess Saturnyne captured them off panel and they escaped off panel. I like the idea for that subplot but too much of it is happening off panel or on data pages. This isn't a terrible comic but I'm getting tired of not seeing plot elements in this book more

jokerman, I've been getting numerous complaints about your conduct on the site. It's created a level of antagonism that goes against the spirit of what I want the site to be and is affecting others' enjoyment of the site. I have no way of knowing if you read all the issues you review, but please only review issues you've read. And for the issues you have read and would like to review, there's a 20 point scale you can use to give a more evolved rating rather than reducing issues to either Masterpiece or Trash. That kind of reductive rating style is not only insulting to others who’ve enjoyed the issues you’ve labeled as Trash, but can either boost or bomb an issue's rating unfairly, which in turn causes our aggregate community ratings for each issue to mean less. This site is built on the contributions of all of us, so please consider the effects your contributions have on the site and the community that enjoys being here. If not, I have no problem with removing your account.

The best issue of this run, we finally have at least half an issue that has a proper Supergirl in it.

I'm happy that this terrible run ended a bit better than it started (and continued and continued).

I saw someone mention in the comments that the writer had no control over their run. It seems on par with the DC horror story coming from Mairghread Scott recently.

Actually was told It’s not a female thing and was given a bunch of examples of the same thing happening to male writers as well. It is a thing that DC is doing to all “mid-level” writers. A few big writers are allowed to do what they want and the rest are made to do what dc tells them or be replaced

Supergirl limps across the finish line at last and does so with as much grace as one might hope — which at this point isn't much really. Writer, artist, and protagonist all deserved better than the editorially-mandated flavorless mush that they were given to work with.

I see what Jody tried to accomplish in this issue, bringing back Kara's old fears and foes, but it feels more chaotic and disorganized that it probably should have been for its own good. It's a decent story, albeit not one I'd call well executed, which was a long running problem with Supergirl's series to begin with.

Good start. As always, Snyder knows how to rope you in and start an event very well. He sets up the main players, the conflicts, and the story all very well.
