perletwo: kara the knitter! (knitting supergirl)
[personal profile] perletwo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Since there's a bit of a discussion of the most recent Supergirl reboot's character swings and roundabouts going on in the Casstoons post, this seemed like a good time to post 3 pages of Superman/Batman annual 5 which address some of those issues.

A Reign of Doomsday tie-in, the basic setup is Sh*&, Meet Fan. Kara and Dick are trapped in the Watchtower with Doomsday and Cyborg Superman, who's turning the satellite into a giant weapon. Kara has apparently gotten hit with synthetic magic energy and is too ill to fight, so Dick gets her to sickbay, which he explains the JLA somehow turned into a "panic room" - it's cut off from all other systems, Cy.Sup can't reach it to manipulate it, and it's shielded from magic energy. Kara's well while she's in there, but only while she's in there. Dick leaves her to fight the Gruesome Twosome by his lonesome, and Kara accidentally triggers a full-body diagnostic scanner, which informs her she's dying. dun dun DUNNNN!

Through comms she passes word on to Dick, who in mid-battle tells her how to initiate sickbay's holographic Dr. Mid-Nite AI. Holo!Pieter confirms she's dying but can find no organic cause. So, Dick suggests one more option - the holographic Dr. Fate AI.

She does as he prescribes, and rejoins the battle. And then things get exponentially worse, but that's a tale for another post.

If Kara was suffering from some serious physical ailment, do you think it'd make more sense for Clark, Lois, or Ma Kent to examine her instead of an actual trained MD? No? Then why should it be any different for a psychological problem? Remember, Fate's a psychiatrist by profession.

We're not talking about serious aliments, we're talking about fallout from New Krypton story and residual feelings that Kara hasn't dealt with which with a little help from dark matter/whatever, has made her into Dark/Supergirl. It makes sense for either of those three, in order that I stated, have this conversation/turning-point with Kara instead of some psychiatrist seeing as they all were affected by the same event, some more the others and have history overcoming previous traumatic events. (Ma Kent is someone who comes across as even if she didn't know the full extent of the probelm, she'll know what to say)

It would ended up as one part of Supesclan helping another move past a traumatic event and finally having the character back on the track it should be on.
