Sometimes You Lobo, Sometimes You Don't.

Supergirl has certainly been busy over the last couple of months.  Taking on Cyborg Superman, and then that whole Krypton Returns thing.  Maybe she deserves a bit of a break, huh?  Let's find out if she gets one.

Explain It!:

So Supergirl is back on Earth, but she's not the only one, turns out that new Twilight looking Lobo is in search of the Main Man we all know, and love.  If you haven't read the Lobo Villain's Month issue, then you don't know that this new Lobo is actually the original one, and the one we know is actually the imposter.  Weird right?  But all his leads have dried up because he doesn't know the Main Man is being held by Stormwatch.  The last bit of intel Lobo has is he might find more information on where his imposter is in The Block, a secret laboratory located at the center of the Earth.  Following so far?  I hope so.  

So Supergirl's back on Earth, and she makes trip down to The Block to talk to Shay Veritas the scientist in charge.  Last time Supergirl was here, she was dying of Kryptonite poisoning, and since she's now cured she was hoping that a few tests might figure out how, and why.  To bad for her that Lobo's come a knocking.

Supergirl goes to have a friendly talk, since they are both one of the last of their kind, but this emo looking big bad isn't having any of it.  He tries to subdue Supergirl with a net, and then with his fists, but this only leads to Supergirl losing her temper.  In the end it seems that Supergirl has wailed a little to hard on Lobo's face, and killed him.  Supergirl just can't catch a break.

Bits and Pieces:

Supergirl has finally made her way back to Earth, but the problems just keep following her around.  This issue gives you real insight into the emotional state of Supergirl, and even humanizes her a bit.  I'm really looking forward to what Bedard has planned for our Girl of Steel.  Check it out.
