This is part 5 of the “New Krypton” Superman crossover that began in the New Krypton Special, continued here, in the Guardian Special, and here. And this was awesome, Gates continues to revitalize Supergirl in this issue, pulling a Geoff Johns, he explains away all the craziness of the character – the personality changes, the different memories of her parents – as being a result of Kryptonite radiation poison causing her mind and body to go a little nuts. He even tied in the weird crystal blood from Joe Kelly’s run on the book. Awesome! As for the new Superwoman – she looks great – I do hope it is Linda Danvers but it doesn’t look like it. Maybe Linda Danvers is Flamebird? I don’t know but I have a feeling she is coming back, even had a dream about it (Yes I am that much of a geek). I like the new origin of Supergirl – it is perfect and finally sets the character straight.
