The Volume 1 wiki last edited by pikahyper on 12/05/13 01:31AM View full history

Crash-landing on a strange new planet, Supergirl must come to grips with Krypton's destruction and learn about her own past. But an ingenious foe wants the same information - and will do anything to get it.

Collecting issues #1-7 of the DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 series!

Back Blurb


After crash-landing on Earth, Kara Zor-El of Krypton awakens with no knowledge of where she is or how she came to be there. Surrounded by hostile strangers speaking in an alien language, Kara is utterly lost and cut off from everyone she's ever known. Or is she? A man wearing her family's insignia appears, impossibly claiming to be here infant cousin Kal-El --- the very baby she'd held in her arms just a few days ago...

Unable to accept Kal's explanation --- that Krypton was destroyed decades ago while she was suspended in time, that everyone she has ever loved is gone --- Kara sets off to recover her ships and go home.

Easier said than done, once the ship is taken by opportunistic, exploitative researches. But since this lost, desperate teen also has the powers of a god when she's on Earth, they'll have a hard time stopping her from getting what she wants...

Writers MICHAEL GREEN (Heroes) and MIKE JOHNSON (SUPERMAN/BATMAN) in collaboration with artist MAHMUD ASRAR (Dynamo 5) give readers a fresh new take on Superman's cousin Kara in SUPERGIRL: LAST DAUGHTER OF KRYPTON (collects issues #1-7)!

However, this, surprisingly, is a pretty solid addition to the New 52 line-up. Certainly not the best, but it's up there, to be ...

Enjoyable for what it's worth. 0

The Earth is being bombarded by a very small meteor shower; a possible meteor lands in Siberia with a surprise. It appears that the meteor was in fact a space pod, and a young blond girl surfaces wearing Superman's colors and she begins to develop his powers quickly. She's then under attack by men in mechas until Superman arrives. Who is this girl and what is her relationship with Superman? -summary Supergirl has a rather complicated past that can take forever to get into. The bottom line is tha...
