In general, the lady superheroes just arent as deep as the guys, right? I liked the art here, but this was more from Batman/Superman POV. I did enjoy it, but at the end of the day they didn't fill out Supergirl as much as I wish they had.

David Monroe It launched her retcon back to the DCUniverse. She got her own book in '05, also written by Loeb. It took on a much darker plot, not deeper, but darker. The DVD, 'Superman/Batman: Apocalypse', released last year (on netflix IW) largely parallels this story, with some minor plot differences. Summer Glau voiced Kara Zor-El/Supergirl.

Deidre in general, i agree that the ladies aren't written as deeply as the guys, but there are some distinct exceptions. i'd recommend you check out "batwoman: elegy" by greg rucka and j. h. williams III :)

Anthony If you want some good Supergirl, check out Sterling Gate's recent run.

Lindsay Stares For human, complex superheroines, you need Gail Simone. Her first Birds of Prey run starts with Of Like Minds.

message 5: by Snow (new)

Snow Wolf Vixen, a heroine in the DC universe that can call upon the strength/speed/agility of animals, had her own comic a few years back called Return of the Lion. She's also appeared in many Justice League comics as a secondary, but in RotL it's her story.
