obviously this isnt the actual cover to Supergirl #1 but i like the look of it in this better then the actual cover

So i was just over on newsarama reading an interview with the writers of the upcoming Supergirl reboot and one part really caught my attention to the point i had to share it. According to the writers

"Green: Everyone just assumes she is like Superman, because she's from the same planet and has the same type of powers. They think she should ostensibly be like he is. But she's a different person, with a different personality. Like any teenager, she would struggle with anyone's assumptions about her, whether they assume she's good or evil or helpful or indifferent.

Johnson: That extends to her powers. Obviously her basic power set is the same as Superman's, but we also want to play with the idea that the yellow sun affects Kryptonian females differently from males. And in some ways, she may be more powerful than Superman. She has different abilities that she's trying to cope with."

So she will have at least some of the same powers but the sun will affect her differently than it does Kal-El? I'm not sure if i like that but it is an interesting way to go and i will be picking it up.

So male kryptonians and female kryptonians could have slightly different power sets? mmmm they could possibly make that work. 
DC seems to be focusing a lot on powers. I think they are attempting to put more limits on their characters now.

Hmm interesting It will either be a big success of fail terribly I suppose.
  
I will stick with the title as one of the few i'm picking up in Sept.

Can't wait for this book. The premise sounds intresting, and I can't wait to see some more of Mahmud Asrar's work.

Sounds interesting but also risky. Could work or it's just going to suck.

#7 Posted by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait to see the new and exciting ways she's going to ride her horse.
 
 
My hope for the second issue:
 
A kryptonite meteor crushes her body. But it's not just any meteor it's a magic meteor that bounces and bounces up and down on her body until she's a smudge on the ground.

@Kallarkz: 
Yea i think it will be interesting as well. I think if they really want to go that way (differentiating between the male and female power sets) then i hope they change it more than just giving her one or two extra powers. I would want it to be noticably different in their powers how they are affected but the yellow sun
 
@TheCrowbar

you dont like her now or you dont like the idea of the reboot? 
 
 
#9 Posted by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't like her. The idea of the reboot is neither here or there for me.

This is either a really good idea or a very bad one. I hope they don't make it too cliché!  
I for the costume I like the effort they made, but I think she showing too skin. I would use the revamp action to make everybody costume more serious.  Specially super-heroines.  
 
As for Supergirl in general, I loved it during my teenage years. But.... will I even dare to read it as an adult?

This sounds simlar to what they did when Supergirl grew those crystals out of her back, It seems a lil stupid and they are relapsing back to the 90s, reason is Linda Danvers Supergirl had different powers sure she wasn't kryptonian but still her power set was different from Superman's this seems stupid in my opion because it's been done before.

I know it's all about alien design and style for her but in all reality humans created it so whats up with the S type look on her crotch? In the second image it just looks like arrows point to her crotch. Ya know like a skirt that they always show flying up wasnt bad enough. That is really the only problem i have with the knew outfit. They could have just left it blue and out lined it in red or yellow. 
 
I dont have a problem with her showing that much skin bc it's not really any more than she originally was. I thought they whole "pant's across the board" line was a little much and im glad they didnt go with it.
#14 Posted by fodigg (6146 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't like the male/female power set thing. I don't like that at all. 
 
Why not make it "not all kryptonians have exactly the same power set" and leave it at that?

#15 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio

not loving the cover art 
and NOT Loving the idea of the different powers for different genders from Krypton
#16 Posted by FanOdaSuperman (4 posts) - - Show Bio

I really LOVE the cover that isn't the official one.  They should use it instead.  She has more of an innocent look about her.  If the series is going to be about a trouble teen from Krypton then it needs a bit of human realism to it and a little less "bad ass fake comic" feel.  I saw the cover to the second Supergirl Issue and its Supergirl fighting Superman.  First of all this has been done a billion times.  Think about it, if this were more real-world, then a teenaged girl wouldn't fight a grown man.  I am imagining her slamming bank sized vault doors (only doors she could slam without destroying it) rather than starting a fist fight.  The last few arcs in Supergirl have had that tone of her being a bad hero and not finding her way.  I want a Supergirl that the world can be proud of but deals with issue her own way.  A hero to stand with Superman but clearly separate in method.  When it comes to Kryptonians in comics, you have to challenge them differently than standard heroes.  And I don't think we are going to see much originality in this first arc.

I'm really excited for this. I just hope they don't give her some lame power, but something more interesting.

#19 Posted by LoganRogue24 (1187 posts) - - Show Bio

i hope they treat Kara with respect like Sterling Gates did.
#20 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

Im excited for this but i am not really that excited to see her fight Superman (again...) 
 
I agree they need to challenge them differently. I hope she stands out more this time around then the last tiem but im doubting it
#21 Posted by tbone1225 (234 posts) - - Show Bio

Do you think they drew her naked first and then just painted clothing over?

#22 Posted by LoganRogue24 (1187 posts) - - Show Bio

this relaunch has me worried i hope they still keep intact what kara was like before i hope her personality is not changed to much iam gonna miss her tummy shirt look. i was hopeing that sterling gates was returning on kara for the relaunch but we will see what happens.

@tbone1225
lol are you talking about the pic in my OP or are you actually talking about the artists that came up with her outfit. Im wondering you decided to put an arrow head pointing down between her legs 
 
@LoganRogue24: 
Yea im afraid they really are going to turn her in to mix of Supergirl and Powergirl in the new DCU.
#24 Posted by LoganRogue24 (1187 posts) - - Show Bio

degraaf lets hope they keep the kara we love somewhat intact.
#25 Posted by sputnik (210 posts) - - Show Bio
@DEGRAAF: i'm not liking this reboot either. like many charaters, kara has already been established as an awesome character able to cope up with her seniors despite of her age, and still have fun.
this reboot might destroy the image alreadfy created. an image readers have learned to love. might.
#26 Posted by sputnik (210 posts) - - Show Bio
@Shadowdoggy: me either. annoying, it is.

I don't like the below the waste part of the costume. I also don't like how they keep trying to make her more powerful then Superman.

#28 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

@LoganRogue24
Im definitely hoping for that. I hope she has the more playful attitude (once she get accustomed to Earth) compared to Powergirls no tolerance to games attitude 

@sputnik
I like the relaunch for the most part, just some parts worry me. 
 
@Dernman: 
They never said they were trying to make her more powerful then Superman

#29 Posted by LoganRogue24 (1187 posts) - - Show Bio

i will give this new relaunch a chance but i love kara so much that it scares me that there gonna change her to much. iam gonna miss seeing her sexy tummy and skirt not likeing her new uniform much the cape looks weird.
#30 Posted by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't think she will be as powerful as Superman. Don't go through that Loeb crap again.

#33 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

so has anyone read the comic yet?

#34 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (889 posts) - - Show Bio

@DEGRAAF: I'm not a huge Supergirl fan, but since the otther Super family books have been good the past 2 weeks I grabbed this and enjoyed it. Like I said, I'm not very knowledgeable about her as a character, but it feels a bit like the Superman/Batman: Apocalypse movie they did last year, minus the Darkseid aspect. I liked it well enough to come back next month, plus the art is pretty good to boot.

#35 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

@fenixREVOLUTION: Yea i read it this morning. It was good. And i love the art. The art of a book is one of the most important things to me when it comes to reading comics. I dropped Avengers bc i cant stand the art. I will definitely be back next month for it.

#36 Posted by darth_brendroid (1717 posts) - - Show Bio

The art looks good. The colours probably help in making it look sleek and just a little retro.

That said, her hand looks off in one panel and although I love the close-up of her face it looks a little out of proportion.

#37 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

@darth_brendroid: i agree it was a bad job at drawing a close up on her face

One problem with that. If I disagree with you now that would be just agreeing to go along with the disagreement.
