Supergirl #1 is a perfect start point for the new series. It’s light and fun in tone but Kara has real drama in her life and real problems readers can relate to.
The book is perfectly set up in the Lee Spiderman format and gives Kara her own cast of characters some of which are familiar and some which are not.
Most importantly we establish the tension between her and other students, her static relationship with Cat Grant and Tension between her and her guardians/DEO cover family and by extension DEO Director Chase. Supergirl deals with red tape and not feeling at home in another place. Supergirl is about feeling homesick and seeking a connection when there isn’t one.
The first issue of Supergirl is bright and universal while being dramatically powerful.
If the first issue is any indication this new run of Supergirl will be great.
