I am a huge fan of Supergirl, always have been, but Kara Zor-El has had a rough time finding her place both in the comics canon, and on screen. Her much maligned 1984 movie is often cited as the reason Hollywood has no faith in superheroines. I think the film, while flawed, is not as bad as it's made out to be, and I quite enjoy it, but that's another story.

Likewise the first 33 issues of her solo series after her reintroduction were uneven at best, and downright horrible at worst thanks to her (editorially mandated?) on again off again grimdark past, and anger management issues stemming there from. Stalkerish boyfriends, the inability to keep any supporting cast members past the very brief stays of each creative team, and oh yeah need I remind you of the time she tried to cure cancer?

I'm so psyched to see (admittedly overlong) trailer for her new CBS series which promises a fun tone, and a great ride.

So let's celebrate with the issue where Sterling Gates came on the book and established a new tone for the character, that made her book a joy to read again, a fact which in my opinion, has remained true to this very day even if Sterling's continuity is gone.

"Free of the reign of Telos, a pantheon of heroes unite at last in an effort to defend their collective cities – but they did not count on the threat of Deimos, who suddenly seems to possess the power to tear the Multiverse apart at the seams! "

This is an exceptional piece of news which I would normally post on noscansdaily, but I think this deserves a post based on the promo piece just released by WB and DC and which DOES include what looks to be the new look for a series of picture books and hopefully comics too!

FINALLY some recognition that young girls can be superhero fans too! )

The audience's attitudes towards certain subjects change as time progresses, so what might seem harmless or even amusing to a past audience comes across as offensive or even creepy by one of today! So, I thought that I'd gather up a few for your perusal.*

*Note: This isn't meant to make light of what they're doing or who they're doing it to, but rather pointing out how unpleasant and strange it is that SUPERHEROES are the ones doing it.

Now scans_daily welcomes those of all religious persuasions, or no religious persuasion at all, and long may it continue to do so.

And whilst appreciating that there are those for whom this day is not particularly special, or whose religious celebrations occur at other times of the year, I hope no one will be offended if I post a couple of Christmas themed special pieces.

So who is on the Naughty List? )

Oh my, this IS a tough one, I've been a sucker for team books all my life; the X-Men, the New Mutants, the Legion of Super-Heroes, the JLA, the JSA (Who I mostly knew about through the JLA/JSA crossovers), the All-Star Squadron, Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, the Batman Family (which I knew when it was at the more ... manageable scale of one Batman, one Batgirl, one Robin and then a replacement Robin and a Nightwing... not that I didn't like the additions, but...) and of course, the New Teen Titans. I'd even count the five principle Bronze Saints from Saint Seiya as a team.

All these have been part of my comic reading experience since the age of... well let's not go there, so picking one is like being asked to pick between a boxful of cute, but different puppies. It's almost impossible.

But, whilst I've posted a LOT of New Mutants and New Teen Titans and Batman Family stuff over the years, there was always one team which was THE team... and it might not be one you'd think of, but it holds a special place in my heart.

I wanted to showcase one of the relationship dynamics that came out of the New 52 reboot that I really liked. Kara and Siobhan the Silver Banshee

So I've decided to post issue 29 and 31 together (Issue 30 is a Will Pfeifer story, that I actually really like, and may post after this is all over)... Not a lot of narrative consequence happens in 29 So I thought we'd plow through.
