"Sam's all for the help, but he didn't ask for it -- it was given to him by selfless Avengers. It was Brevoort's idea that the Avengers traditionally very rarely got involved in each member's Dilemma Du Jour, and maybe we could switch that up." -- Mark Waid

So Sibohan as made her debut in the Supergirl TV show, and I am enjoying the character but with Supergirl's return to the mainstream DCU on the horizon I do hope we see more of the New 52 version, as I quite like her. Reposted from December 2014; here are some scans on how she met Supergirl.

it begins with issue 8 )

"To me, the fun of writing any team book is seeing how its members react to one another in the non-action moments. What happens when you strand these two on a desert island? What about when you take these three, who’ve never shared page-time before, and send them on a do-or-die mission?" -- Mark Waid

In the new DC, I've gone from having 2 books to having 1 book
Power Girl

Here's some chat from DC's Super- panel I've ctrl+f'd it and just taken every paragraph and sentence relating to Supergirl

Johnson spoke to a mystery at the heart of "Supergirl" saying that the Maid of Might does not remember who she is or where she came from, so when she meets Superman for the first time, she does not instinctively trust him. "What we really want to drive home is feeling like we're with her every step of the way and that we're seeing everything as she's seeing it." The writer compared it to the whole relaunch of the New 52 as fans will see the DC Universe with fresh eyes....
Mike Johnson said in terms of how past stories impact "Supergirl." "Everything that's come before matters...but it's going to be a fun mystery.

Johnson added that Supergirl will be a fun character despite her mysteries. "We didn't want her to be this very serious character surrounded by a wacky supporting cast." He said a book without humor would be no good.
Idelson said that when they do other versions of the Superman family like Superboy and Supergirl need to feel significantly different than the Man of Steel. Johnson promised Supergirl and her powers would manifest in a way that "She's not just a Superman clone.""

It looks like, at least on the art standpoint, I'm picking a good one.  )

Shadowland in general is pretty hit-or-miss. It's pulling some pretty nifty characters out of relative obscurity and putting them in a prominent place, like the Shroud, Silver Sable, and Shang-Chi. It's also putting Misty and Colleen back on the map and quietly abandoning Misty's Afro That Ate New York, which only works when Khari Evans is drawing her.

On the other hand, Colleen's Daughters of the Shadow miniseries is a lazy collection of anime cliches, the main book has really inconsistent art, and then there's the whole issue of Possessed Ninja-Master Daredevil. As a crossover, it's nicely inobtrusive; as a story, it's got issues.

The bright spot in the whole thing, though, is Shadowland: Power Man, a four-issue limited series by Fred Van Lente and Mahmud Asrar. The concept in a nutshell: there's a guy in Spanish Harlem using the Power Man name and the "hero for hire" gimmick, and Luke, Danny, and the Hand would all like to know why.

You don't need to follow Shadowland to read this book, and it is in many ways a direct sequel to Luke's solo book from the '70s. It really reminds me of Dwayne McDuffie writing Static, and I mean that in the best way possible.

four pages from issue #1, six pages from issue #2 )
