Time For A Lobotomy.  See What I Did There

Supergirl has had a lot on her plate lately.  All that Krypton Returns nonsense, and now she has to deal with the Twilight Lobo.  I just wish my Main Man and him would come to fisticuffs already.  But I'll have to settle with Supergirl kicking his ass instead.  Last issue ended with what looked like the death of Lobo, at the hands of Supergirl.  Let's see if that death took.  Since they usually do in comic books, that should be the last we see of new Lobo.

Bits and Pieces:

Down in the Block, the scientists perform a autopsy on Lobo, and try to map his genome, since how often do you get to do that to a supposed extinct species?  Dr. Shay Veritas, and Supergirl look on, as the docs do their work, and Supergirl ponders how she could have killed someone.  Shay explains that since she was on Krypton, and now back on Earth, her powers are fluctuating, and what happened isn't her fault.  In a fit of rage Supergirl screams out, breaking the window into the autopsy room, and I'm sure embarrassing her a bit.  The two walk off, and let the docs do what they do, but like all horror flicks, now that there isn't any witnesses it's time for the killer to come back from the dead.  Come on people you've all seen this one.  

So Lobo's back, and after he gets dressed he uses a hacking device to find out all about Supergirl, and how to use her strengths against her.  That's usually how I start most relationships, and he's got a sweet six pack.  Hopefully it will work out for him more than it does for me.  First thing he uses is a hyper sonic device to give Supergirl a neural overload.  Once Kara's out, Lobo goes after Dr. Veritas.  Shay leads Lobo into a chamber, and activates it, while locking herself into a giant catacomb.  The device Shay activated created a mini sun, but I think I might rather be in Lobo's shoes, because inside the catacombs is a creature that calls itself Blaze, and looks like terror incarnate.  Shay apologizes to the creature Blaze about keeping it here, and when it looks like it's about to become another horror flick, Blaze disappears and Lobo breaks through the blast shields.

In the end Lobo threatens Dr. Veritas for the knowledge of the imposter Lobo, and the mini sun Shay activated powers up Supergirl, and we're left with what looks like a no holds barred, rock em' sock em' fight next issue.  Plus we should see a bit of Supergirl as the newest Red Lantern next month.  God I hate waiting.

Bits and Pieces:

This is a very quick read, that doesn't lead to much, and really just gives us what last issue did.  The only exception is for those out there that wanted to know the origin of the Block, this issue is for you.
