Okay, so I've been reading the Ame Comi mini series for the past few months now, and I've really been liking it. I love the fun atmosphere, the new character designs, the fact that it comes out every Monday, and especially the all female spin on it. It gives us some interesting character choices, such as Jesse Quick as Flash, Natasha Irons as Steel, and Batgirl as the main defender of Gotham.
Edit: So they both survived, huh. I expected Steel to, honestly, but I wasn't expecting Catwoman to literally have nine lives. Either that, or a possible Deadpool level HF.
But in the most recent issue, Ame Comi: Supergirl #3... things took an unexpectedly dark turn that I just was not prepared for. I mean, things were starting to get a little darker beforehand, but events here just cemented an all new tone that I'm not sure if I like. In case you haven't been following, Brainiac is on the verge of taking over the planet, and uses Black Kryptonite to turn Supergirl into a weapon, as seen here: So I'm thinking, okay, this could be interesting. I wonder what will happen. Well... then this happened: Why yes, that IS the pointless, unceremonious killing of two of the B-list characters at the hands of Supergirl. I just... I mean... what the hell? At least there's still a chance Steel might survive after being frozen, but there's no coming back from a snapped neck. They just offed Catwoman for no reason. I... I... whaaa? I'm still staring at that panel with my mouth hanging open in disbelief. What is this supposed to be telling us? That if you're not one of the titular characters in the series (Power Girl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Duela Dent) that you're just expendable and could be killed off at any moment for no reason? I don't think I like that D: I honestly never thought I'd actually want to see Supergirl decapitated, but goddamn, please make it happen Wonder Woman! Has anyone else been reading this? Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Please tell me I'm not alone in the "WTF just happened?!" mindset.
