The book is aware of the criticisms facing Supergirl's run by taking her away from her TV depiction. But in all honesty, what made Supergirl stand out for me is her willingness to dive into the ugliness of a situation instead of always hoping for the best; otherwise she's just a blonde gender-flipped Superman. Plus she's authentic in how she has no patience for the outright racism on display. Whil more

I don't see the point in criticizing this issue for apparently being influenced by what you think Tom King's wife is like. That's some parasocial cringe shit right there. Delusional, too. The issue was pretty good, but I thought the narration was overdone. I don't know if I'm on board with this series yet. I just don't have much interest. I also don't see the reason to wait till the end of the iss more

Everything we knew about adam was a lie. His victory on rann wasn't much of a victory. It was a deal. Trying to cover it up only made it worse, it only led to more lies and now, it's time to face the consequences of those lies. Adam is the villain. Or is he? can you really blame him for wanting to save his wife's planet, her home? There's more to it than meets the eye. After all, war is never that more
