There's just a point where after you turn evil enough times, I feel like you just aren't responsible enough to be waltzing around with the power to destroy the entire planet.  It also makes me care even less about you.
 
It's one thing when Hal Jordan gets mind controled to join the corps of the week because 1) Hal has his own book, written by Geoff Johns, which everybody reads and he does enough good to make up for being mind controled all the time.  2) It is a well known fact that Hal Jordan doesn't have a personality so we don't lose much from him being mind controled.
 
You have your own book, true, but it's written by Sterling Gates who is rather new to the comic scene and so you aren't getting the readers Hal gets.  The average comic reader doesn't know what you do all the time.  So when every time you show up in Superman or JLA, you turn evil, you don't get the benefit of the doubt that Hal gets because we don't know if you're off saving the world in your book or if you're just as evil over there.  Also, when you're already a girl version Superman, you need to stand out.  Lacking personality in crossover issues because you've turned evil isn't good for your image and doesn't really make anybody want to buy their daughter a Supergirl comic either.  You need to make a good impression in those issues, Kara.  You need to come across as competant and yet interesting, emotional but still fun.  Extra doses of fun couldn't hurt.  Turning evil isn't fun.  It's stressful.
 
 And I almost didn't bring this up but sometimes....I don't even believe you.  You tell me you're evil, you dress up in that black and silver outfit...it just feels like you're throwing a fit because you feel people aren't paying enough attention to you.  This isn't a good way to get attention and I wish you'd stop turning evil for an issue at a time.
 
Most of this applies to you too, Mary.

Really disappointing. And how they call her "Dark Supergirl" is rather cliche.

 She's not a Superman rip-off.They are both DC characters.You can't rip-off you're own characters that doesn't even make sense.There are related characters in every company that have the same powers.

Kara turns into "Dark Supergirl" to separate her from Superman.  
 
When Kara was mind controlled by Darksied; it introduced us the reader to a whole new perspective about her, because it rose the question. "Did he make her evil? or did he appeal to a darkness she already had sitting in her".  When Kara came to Earth had there been no JLA she would have done any and everything she felt like doing with her powers. (Via being provoked).  So then she turns evil again this time, because of Lex's doing, He has found out from Darksied that there is an evil inside Kara, the likes that which SUPERMAN doesn't  have. Now after the two apperances of Dark Supergirl, Kara begins this life of the "Anti-Hero" but not in a traditional sense. She is trying to do what's right but she keeps messing up and people don't respect her. This plays (Like Dark Kara) into the notion that she isn't like Superman, because she's battling this inner evil while trying to do the right; thing and is being punished for it. 
 
Dark Supergirl is implemented so, we don't see SUPERGIRL EARTH ONE titles, OR SUPERGIRL PRIME and all that BS, It's the writers way of seperating her from every other character in DCU. (Maybe with the exception of Raven).  We know what she does, She saves the world and falls prey to the same mistakes everyone is prone to making.

he is ALOT more enjoyable than Supergirl, she could atleast have her own name, instead of rip off Superman

She turned into Dark Supergirl in JLA but she really isn't "evil".  
 
It's more along the lines of her personality being affected and losing quite a bit of her inhibitions.

Again how can a character be a rip-off if one company owns the rights to both characters? Power Girl and Supergirl are the same character.Kara-Zor El so I doubt there is any real reason you prefer Power Girl more.Maybe it's the look because they are essentially the same character. 
 
Also i'm not a Marvel or a DC fan.I'm a comic fan.I read whatever doesn't suck.

what about all the user with "Batman" or "Wonder Woman" in their user name, basically half of Comic Vine, but she copied his whole costume and name, she should make her own name up, and Superman is original

Do you actually read anything she's in? Other than appearance she's nothing like Clark.

@comicdude23:  True, Supergirl and Superman are related, so she's a rip off because she pays homage to her cousin.
 
But your not a rip off because you have the same username as someone you don't know

But he's not a dictator, he's a helper.  And she makes some of the stupidest decisions.  She has a brain that can process and work faster than our own and I can control what I do and say, and she can't.

@Supreme Marvel: He's a fully grown man, and she's a seventeen year old girl. When you have to live in the shadow of Superman; you can't have room for mistakes, but that's exactly what Kara is a character that makes mistakes. I can't find the other scan but this is her being "Talked too" by Lois.

Also, I don't think she's been called Darl Supergirl in the JLA arc a single instance. That's probably just a tagline they use on the cover.

I guess she's the prime example that woman don't mature faster than males then.

true. I dunno, the idea is kinda lame to reuse the evil Supergirl idea. I'm just pumped that Blue Jay is in the arc.
