A Cold Case Re-opened?
In the alternate time-stream depicted in the "Absolute Power" story-line from Superman/Batman, Superman murdered that universe's version of Wonder Woman. Shouldn't he be held accountable for that crime in some way?
Supergirl #7 opens a narrative door that just might allow for the question to be answered yes.
The image on the issue's final splash page makes it reasonable to assume that Kandor's evil Kal-El is actually the "Superman" who perpetrated the act of which I spoke.
The DC webpage informs us that the next issue will include both the marriage of Supergirl and a battle to the death with Power Girl.
So I carry the following questions to the next installment of Supergirl:
— Do Kryptonians believe in divorce?
— Can Power Girl and Supergirl avoid killing each other?
— Will evil Kal-El get what he so justly deserves?
I hope all three will be answered yes.
- No. Divorce is wrong. Getting filthy with cousins is perfectly normal.
- They probably can, but I hope Power Girl can't avoid killing, because this Supergirl has been such a disaster so far.
- Probably not, but I'm a cynic. I actually think Power Girl is going to fight Supergirl because S-Girl wants to kill him and Power Girl just wants to stop him.
- They believe in divorce, killing babies, humping cousins, and whatever else Joe Kelly thought up this week.
- I also they they CAN avoid it, but I'm hoping that Power Girl creams Supergirl.
- I like Ultraman. He's my favorite Evil-alternate-Superman, so does he deserve a sexing?
Power Girl's ineffectiveness in this title has also been a bummer.
