Exclusive Preview: SUPERGIRL #20

Is this the end of Supergirl? Good thing there's a spare hanging around, right?

Supergirl and Power Girl in the same comic. It's a cool idea considering they're sort of the same character, only from different 'worlds.' EARTH 2 writer, James Robinson has said the unofficial rule is you can't have an Earth 2 and Earth Prime version of the same character. Clearly Power Girl is the exception to the rule.

Last issue, with all the craziness of last month's titles, we not only saw a confrontation between the two, but also the return of Power Girl's original costume. With issue 20 out next week, things aren't looking too good for Supergirl. Check out our exclusive preview courtesy of DC Comics.

SUPERGIRL #20

Supergirl is dead—Long live Supergirl! Or so it seems as the strange connection between the Karas has Power Girl becoming Supergirl again.

K, that was hilarious.

Edited by Duo_forbidden

Lol, this looks like it will be a fun issue to read.

Edited by StMichalofWilson

Huh, an actual Supergirl and Power Girl meeting which the two don't beat each other up. Plus Kara callin' Kara out for wearing that suit! xD

Thank you god! I've missed the power boobs so much!

That awkward moment when Power Girl is written a thousand times better outside of her own book...

Posted by KnightRise

Lets all take a second and be thankful for the return* of Power Girl's costume. *The New 52 update of the classic costume actually looks great.

Edited by RideASpaceCowboy

Am I the only one who hates it when sub par interiors can't come close to matching fantastic cover art? I don't mind so much the fact that it's misleading the consumer; few individuals would but a book based solely on the cover art and nothing else. However, it does create a contrast in the mind of the reader wherein the interior art seems all the worse for the comparison.

Yup. I don't really find it awkward though, more hopeful.

Hopefully she keeps this outfit over her current one.

Yup, I'm only reading for the deep story.

And now I want to collect Supergirl again...

When Supergirl says, "Of course I am", I cracked up.

the perv hole returns...

Posted by ForeverMan

Yeah so that 5 page preview was at least as entertaining as all 12 Worlds' Finest issues so far.

I can't find any human way possible to see this comment as funny or logical, I can't even take it serious, why would say something like that? Why is people randomly saying things like that? I know the other costume wasn't good but why just stare at the boobs of a fictional character? Power girl is more than just boobs!

Couldn't be more truth.. I mean, I even like Kara way more pre World's Finest when in mr terrific!

Now that! That's funny :b

No, you're not.. imagine a covert by Alex Ross for and inside, the book is by Skottie Young, not that this art is bad or that Scottie's art is bad is just... the covert shouldn't be better than the actual book

Posted by akbogert

If the rest of this book is anywhere close to as entertaining as this preview, I may have just found a new ongoing.

...unless they're actually going to kill one of them, in which case that would be stupid and I would go nowhere near this.

Posted by Psycho_Soldier

so we are going back to a fun book like pre N52?

Posted by dementedtheclown

WOW Powergirls boobs grew fast! lol
Looks great O_O

Posted by DH69

excellent now give me back ms marvels old suit, im tired of her looking like a star trek reject.

Posted by doordoor123

BOOOOOOOOBS

Posted by blkson

Supergirl's costume is still the most ridiculous thing I've seen in the new52, outside of Bronze Tiger being an actual tiger... Kal El gets battle armor and Supergirl gets a bikini? And are the boobs all people like about Powergirl? sheesh. I mean was it really that big of a deal that they covered them up?

Looks Fun!

I mean maybe you'd have a point if you just assume people can only like a character for one reason :P I always liked PG because she was so touch and kinda tomboyish. More then anything I feel like the biggest issue with new 52 PG is how girly she acts with all this celerity stuff.

Well, considering both supergirl and power girl show up in future solicits of their own series...

Posted by akbogert

@stormbox: Stranger things have happened.

No, but I pretty much have already assumed that the whole thing was a big ball of hot air. I just won't be able to exhale until the issue is definitively out and we know precisely what we were being teased with.

Posted by ULTRAstarkiller

Forgot how much I missed Power Girl's old costume.

Am I the only one who started hearing Sanctuarys voice as GLADoS once it started getting insistent about following the blue lights?

I don't think you know what a bikini is.

Posted by bennyq

Has Supergirl always been this funny? I might have to start picking it up.

I personally started reading it in Glyph's voice from ME3.

@reignmaker: lol, Jack!

Looks like it could be a pretty good issue. I think I will pick it up if I have the extra money. I wish World's Finest was this good cause then maybe I would give it a read.

Posted by xtremekidx

Well,let me just bang my head to the fact that i haven't been reading this series!!!Is it always this light-hearted fun??

Posted by TDK_1997

Finally the book will get my attention again.

Edited by UltimateSMfan

Oh man that was funny!! Sanctuary and Jarvis should become best friends...and the way sg called out pg on the outfit n she retorted with, it's yours! Lol! Woah that was a good preview, can't wait for the whole issue!

Posted by RDClip

This guy should write Worlds Finest, Supergirl hasn't been fantastic, but at least I can get into it without a rage-out. Worlds Finest is just so terrible and Power Girl is written to be a complete scatterbrain bimbo. In Supergirl, PG is written to be actually intelligent and witty.

Anyone else notice that PG's costume is slightly different in the interiors and on the cover (and in WF #12)

Posted by Onemoreposter

I'm buying anything with PG right now to support the costume switch. Plus, that cover is so over the top its amazing.

Posted by iaconpoint

Not on my pull list, but I'll be getting this issue. Gotta love how people get all bent out of shape and pseudo-indignant about PG's boob window.

Posted by saoakden

This looks fun. This book is already on my pull list.

A Wonderful Preview

Posted by SlickyMike88

Looks fun , may be worth a read^^

Edited by KryptonSabbath

God bless, the creator of the "classic" Power Girl suit.

Posted by nicholai441

been enjoying this series for sometime. with this preview I am looking forward this this issue. loved that "of course I am" look supergirl had on her face.

Posted by RedQueen

I'd have to agree with that statement.

DAMN those boobs.

You mad!? Mahmud Asrar's art is awesome.

Edited by doombot890

hahaha i cant wait for this issue to come out!

Posted by snarkybits

Love the cover. Almost as good as the other version where Power Girl is also in a Supergirl outfit.

Posted by thejman251

- Look at that, a bit of actual comedy in a comic book.

- Additionally, i'm glad that cleavage girl has returned.

- I'll think about reading World's finest again to see her although i absolutely hate that book.

"perhaps the answer lies at the end of the blue lights"

Sanctuary, U so crazy!
