Mild Mannered Reviews - Supergirl #39

"Crucible" - Part Four

Writer: K. Perkins and Mike Johnson
Penciller: Emanuela Lupacchino
Inker: Ray McCarthy
Cover: Emanuela Lupacchino

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Once again we have a story that proves to me why this is perhaps one of the best New 52 titles out there. Characterization has been more or less consistent, and pacing is at its usual lightning speed. I tend to be sad when I get to the last page of every issue because I continue to want more.

    I sincerely hope I'm wrong about one thing. I feel like Kara is using Mike Harris for the distinct purpose of the writers finding a reason to write out or get rid of the character. He has great potential as part of Supergirl's supporting cast, and putting him out to pasture so soon after he came into Kara Zor-El's life would be a shame.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    An exceptionally poor installment, this week's Injustice brings what the discerning reader had probably realized some time ago: there is no story here and yet, more issues are to come. The plodding and padding of the sequences is absurd at this point, as it's obvious that a certain number of issues must occur in a single year of Injustice, regardless of whether or not they are needed or merited. How long can a fight between Trigon and Mxyzptlk continue, what has become of the Spectre, how long do the super-pills last, how could the Insurgency escape from Swamp Thing, why isn's Batman dead? These questions swirl around the epicenter of this mess, with the realization that they won't be sufficiently answered. They cannot be. A cogent answer for any of them reduces the issue to less than birdcage liner, and there are still two more years to go. However, how long can Injustice continue without a basic centre or a solid core? The book is moving strictly on the inertia generated from a false start out of the gate, and an obliviousness to the fact that it has done so.

February 18, 2015: Jim Lee Talks "The Multiversity: Mastermen" and Nazi SupermanPrint

February 18, 2015: Leather-Jacket Superboy vs. Kingdom Come SupermanPrint

Convergence: Superboy #2 The upcoming 2-part "Convergence: Superboy" series written by Fabian Nicieza, sees the earring-wearing 1990s Superboy get into a fight with the tragic Superman of "Kingdom Come". Nicieza spoke with ComicBookResources.com to give us some more info on this interesting pairing...

    The hook for this series involves the arrival of the Superman from "Kingdom Come." That take on the character was created as a response to the kind of wild, young heroes of the '90s that Superboy, in some ways, embodies. Considering that, what new dimensions were you able to explore in either character with their diametrically opposed views?

    Well, your question kind of answers itself. It's exactly because Superboy has the potential as a character to so perfectly embody the themes of "Kingdom Come" that the conflict comes into play. The question then becomes, can either Superman or Superboy rise above their respective beliefs to do what is right?

    Ultimately, the story you and Karl Moline are telling seems to be one of honor. It's all about who has the right to carry this mantle. What about the story you're telling together speaks to the core idea of what Superman is and who he's supposed to be?

    It's a little less about the right to carry the mantle as, ultimately, the maturity to understand what the mantle embodies. What if winning a greater war requires the maturity to accept losing a battle? What does it take to learn that respect isn't granted because you have powers but because of how you choose to use those powers?

    Pitting Kon-El vs. "Kingdom Come" Kal-El makes for tailor-made conflict to address all these questions.
