Red Dawn.

Alright so this issue is the beginning of Red Daughter of Krypton story arc most of you are familiar with, even though we had two issues with Supergirl and a Red Lantern ring in the Green Lantern/Red Lantern flip book issue.  But don't worry you didn't miss the origin of Red Lantern Kara, you get all the rage fueled fun right here.  Let me catch you up if you haven't been reading.  Supergirl has been fighting the new emo Lobo for two issues.  Alright you're all caught up.

Explain It!:

Supergirl is still fighting Lobo, and the fight might have gone on forever, and destroyed the super science sanctuary known as "The Block", but we get a little space to breath when Dr. Shay Veritas orders the two beamed out of the complex.  Also there's some kind of monsterish demon king or queen in "The Block" that seems to be loose now that Supergirl and Lobo smashed the hell out of the place.  There isn't a lot of information on it so I'm not going to bother getting into it.  That's a story for another time apparently.

Supergirl and Lobo get transported back to the surface, and Lobo jumps in his spaceship that looks like it's a cross between an X-Wing, and a Snow Speeder, and leads Supergirl on a merry chase.  While Lobo was in "The Block", he accessed their database, and got all the information on Supergirl they had, so he figures the best place to lead her where she wouldn't want to endanger people bashing his head in, is where she lives in NYC.  Alright so now we're on talking terms.  Lobo tells Kara that she could be his partner in the bounty hunting game, and that with her power they would be unstoppable.  Now for those of you who have been reading Supergirl for awhile will know, the main thing that Kara's villains have had in common is that they've tried to use, and manipulate her.  It looks like she's finally smartened up a bit, and isn't going to let that happen again.  BAM!  Back to fisticuffs.

In the end Lobo is down, and Kara is going on a full on rage, when a shiny red ring flies in front of her, telling her that she has great rage in her heart, and that she belongs to the Red Lantern Corps.  Enter Red Daughter of Krypton.

Bits and Pieces:

Even though this is the beginning of the Red Daughter of Krypton story, we've already had two other stories in the Green Lantern/Red Lantern flip book, and sadly Supergirl is the least interesting character in each story.  Cinar's artwork is very pleasing to the eye, as for story it seems that we've had Supergirl just slugging away at Lobo for the past two and a half issues.  I get it she's angry and doesn't like his jerk off face, but I expected more of a origin to this story than just Hulk smash.  Hopefully the rest of the story will be more impressive than this issue.
