New Krypton

Finally finished The New Krypton mega-saga, which has been going on in the Superman line of comic books for the past two years and has encompassed over 80 comic book issues. It took me two CENICU months to finish the damn thing, and I must say that it has been quite an entertaining ride with really good action and hundreds of story threads, some of which went nowhere, but still convened together to form one mega-story line. Of course, everything almost goes back to status quo by the end of it all, but still, the story line has some great achievements. The best of which, I think, would probably be the wonderful development of characterizations of Lois Lane, Lana Lang, and Supergirl. Kara Zor-El Supergirl, upon returning to the main DC continuity in 2005 has suffered from the many different treatments of many writers, the worst of which was by Joe Kelly with that assassinate Superman thing. Sterling Gates has fleshed out Supergirl so completely that I actually believe she is now a real… person. Come and visit me some time in my room, Kara Zor-El, and I’ll show you my DC action figures. I have displayed your figure in the middle and displaced the Big Three—Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman—to the background. Come on, Kara Zor-El, Supergirl, Maid of Might, Last Daughter of Krypton, Linda Lee, Linda Lee Danvers, Linda Lang, or whatever name you wish to call yourself now, come and get me, and be in your Michael Turner get-up.
