Someone at DC sure seems to have a penchant for letting perverted men rob women of their agency of late and then cancelling their books.

First Supergirl, now Batgirl.

I'm sure someone gets something from reading this. I did too - nausea.

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.

Deemed a threat by the U.S. military, Supergirl is now a wanted villain! General Corvid has come for our hero-and she won’t give up until Kara’s gone for good. Meanwhile, the superstorm rages stronger than ever, while hundreds remain helpless against it. Can Supergirl prove that she’s the hero the people once believed her to be? Or will she l...

DC Stuff - Jul 3, 2020

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

With two issues left and so many threads unresolved it would have been impossible to deliver a worthy ending. But with this plethora of options, they chose to dig in to the one plot that we hoped would never be mentioned again.

A Supergirl book at its best is one where she lights up the dark, a shining beacon of hope and compassion. It is when she makes Deadman understand what being a h more

Why DC?

This is the same issue we have been given for the last 5 issues.

Where is Supergirl?

Why is this a Wonder Woman book?

I would say you are killing this title, but you know - you already did.

A meh ending to a meh event.

Why was Supergirl even in this event? She served no purpose in it, just as with all the other events she has been dragged into lately.

If the writer can't write her, or doesn't want to, stop dragging her into the events. Half a year of her comics ruined for no reason at all.

This isn't a Supergirl comic. If it had been a Wonder Woman title, it would have made at least a little sense. It still wouldn't have been a good comic. Also, we have seen this before a dozen times. Supergirl doesn't get worse than this.
