Supergirl Rebirth #1 spoilers and review follow.
After vanquishing a Krytonian werewolf, Lar-On who was manipulated by red kryptonite, Supergirl meets with Director Cameron Chase of the DEO (Department of Extranormal Operations).
Supergirl agrees to work with DEO and monitor and protect Earth from alien threats. Kara also gets new “parents”, DEO agent handlers, named Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers for 16 year old Supergirl alter ego Kara Danvers.
Kara Danvers will attend high school during the day, but protect the Earth as needed by DEO’s orders or what she herself stumbles on to.
Supergirl #1 is set-up as we have the return of Zor-el, her father and also known as Cyborg Superman from the New 52! However, who has he awakened? Hmmm.
September 2016’s Supergirl #1 can’t come soon enough!
One of the best parts of the DC New 52 was this re-imagining of the Cyborg Superman. Glad to see it carried forward into Rebirth.
Supergirl is in National City and works for the DEO. Well, part of the CBS and now CW Supergirl TV series has made it into comics. Will we see the Martian Manhunter has a cast member of the book too? Awesome art and compelling story provide a strong lead in for September 2016’s Supergirl #1.
