Trying To Get Inside Supergirl

Well it's time to get semi upset again fans of the Girl of Steel.  This issue takes place after next week's Red Lanterns #32, and what we're told is that Guy Gardner sent Supergirl away to have Saint Walker on Mogo try and remove her Red Lantern ring.  But beside the inconvenience of this the important things to know going into this issue is that Supergirl stopped a alien race of world killers from nearly destroying an entire species of aliens.  They have this whole thing where near genocide is a gift they give to people, so that race can become stronger for it.  So obviously when they find out that Supergirl is a Kryptonian and with all the power she has, it kind of legitimizes their ideals.  The Diasporans (The Bad Guys) set a trap for Supergirl for when she finally decides to return to Earth, and now it's just a waiting game for them.  Let's check back in and see if Supergirl loses the red jewelry, and what her plans are for the future.

Explain It!:

Like I said the story begins out of order where Supergirl makes her way to Mogo because Guy Gardner doesn't want her to be a Red Lantern anymore.  I don't know if Saint Walker is up to the task but we won't find out anyway.  It seems that Supergirl says "Fuck it", and decides that she likes being a Red Lantern and doesn't care what Guy Gardner thinks.  So she's going to take her new power and return to the only home she has left, Earth.

But also like I said in the beginning the Diasporans have made a trap for her, and now the trap has sprung.  The Diasporan soldiers attack Supergirl and just like you'd think she makes short work of them.  That is until their general tags in, and now the real fight is on.  The two tussle for awhile, and we learn that this general is called World Killer, and he is the last of the entities that Supergirl has fought with the same name.  It turns out that the other World Killers and him were created on Krypton, and while the others were created to conquer, he was created to empower.  So that's why we get the near genocide gift giving thing.  The two continue to fight and World Killer begins to decompose like when you put a Gremlin in sunlight.  

In the end we see that the creature known as World Killer wasn't the brains of the operation.  The armor he was wearing gains a new hologram like head and hands, and we find out that the armor needs a new host, and guess who it has in mind.  The two start being pulled into Earth's atmosphere which has been recently poisoned by Kryptonite in Action Comics #32, and it doesn't look good for our heroine.  The story ends with World Killer's tentacles wrapping around Supergirl, and awful Hentai thoughts in my mind.  Make sure you read Red Lanterns #32 next week so we can get the full story about why Guy Gardner sent Kara away, and make sure to be back here in thirty so we can find out if Supergirl can overpower her attacker, and hopefully not get too poisoned by Earth's atmosphere.

Bits and Pieces:

There doesn't seem to be much to this title this month, but that could be because we're only given half the story since Red Lanterns #32 proceeds it and hasn't come out yet.  Big fights, big thrills, but this series still seems to be bogged down by Supergirl's bad attitude which I hoped she'd have learned to control with the Red Daughter of Krypton story arc.  But hopefully when it's all over we will see a Supergirl who's better adjusted, and given a purpose or at least a direction.  For a positive though, Emanuela Lupacchino's art looks great and if you like seeing a great looking Supergirl yelling and hitting things, then this issue is for you.
