Time To Fight! 

Alright we're already in Pt. 3 of 4 of the Krypton Returns story arc.  So if you like jumping around throughout timelines, and not getting a full story you're in for a treat.  I kid, I kid this should be fun.  To get you caught up go check out the review of last issue HERE.  So let's jump right into Supergirl, and see how the trio are doing in their respective timelines.

Explain It!:

We start this issue off with a Silver Surfer wanna-be flying through space, having himself a nice little inner monologue, about how one of our three heroes would have to sacrifice themselves.

Alright let's get back to some fun.  When we last left Supergirl, H'El had come at her with a shard of Kryptonite looking for revenge.

H'El has Supergirl pinned down, and the two banter about who betrayed who, when Supergirl takes matters into her own hands, and shoves her palm into H'El's nose.  Aaagghh, you could feel that one.  Supergirl gets away, and finds a loose axe left from her battle in last issue.  But let's take a quick break and find out what Superman's up to.

Well our big boy in red and blue is just lounging, being content with himself being around his mother.  But suddenly Superman's armor turns back to normal (it's been acting funny in the past two issues), and a unknown figure approaches him, who I guess we'll find out who in the next issue.  See I told you that would be quick, now moving on to Superboy.

After defeating Eradicator in the last issue, a time portal opens, and Superboy believes his mission is a success, and he can go home.  But before he enters the portal, guess who's back.  Eradicator isn't dead, and will not die until the universe is destroyed.  Oh good.  So Superboy does the only thing he can think of.  He throws Eradicator into the time portal.  Where we see the other end lands him in Smallville.  Superboy hugs Kara goodbye, planning on going through the portal himself, but he is stopped by a time hopping H'El.  

Here's where we get a little bit like the flick Frequency.  Now H'El is fighting both Supergirl, and Superboy but in different timelines.  So when Supergirl cuts H'El with her axe, Superboy's foe backs off as a slice forms on his chest.  The two heroes don't let this advantage go to waste, and start pounding on H'El.  But they're not the only ones.  Since Supergirl beat the hell out of a group of clones in the last issue.  Including the clones leader Kon, Supergirl seems to be their new leader.  The clones attack H'El, but in the long run are no match.  But Supergirl isn't going to go down that easy.  We end this issue with Supergirl throwing herself at H'El brandishing an axe, yelling "FOR KRYPTON!"

Bits and Pieces:

Krypton Returns Pt. 3 does nothing to further the story along.  With one more issue left of this arc, it feels like it will be a  mad dash to the finish, and we'll all be left disappointed.  But that's for another review.  This is a great continuation to the action that we saw in the last issue, but didn't give us enough to be blown away.
