"Vengeance So Dear"
Writer: Peter Tomasi
Penciller: Ed Benes and Doug Mahnke
Inker: Jaime Mendoza, Doug Mahnke and Mark Irwin

Seriously, this issue had several, genuine, no foolin' fist pumping moments. It mixed action with exposition and never let up. It was entertaining and fun and Tomasi made the two stars of this book look just plain awesome.
To be fair this issue was mainly one fight scene followed by an explanation of why Circe has such a mad on for Wonder Woman followed by another fight scene followed by a cliffhanger ending of Superman flying towards the reader looking like he wants to stomp a hole and walk it dry. It's not the deepest of plots but where Tomasi excels is giving us character and motivation which makes the action seem like it has a purpose beyond simple entertainment. The very first scene explains why Magog has such a hatred for super heroes in general and both Superman and Wonder Woman in particular. He lost his entire family the day Apokolips invaded and he blames the heroes for that invasion. It's a tragic backstory for a tragic character. Matters are made worse by the fact that in the end Magog was just a pawn of Circe. She used him and his rage to further her own ends and at the first opportunity she cut ties and left him to be captured by ARGUS agents. If he wasn't so dangerous or trying to kill Superman I'd feel bad for the guy.

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.
Described as a "key recurring role", Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Kara, has the following character profile:
"A strong noblewoman, Alura sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl."
