Supergirl gets her final issue with issue 42.
I’m guessing the infected arc didn’t strike home with the fans. I know it didn’t strike home with me.
The question is… what happens next?
Is she making a noble sacrifice of herself in the final issue? I don’t see that working well with the President Supergirl future we have been teased, but then again, when they wrote that maybe they thought that Infected Supergirl would sell better. Continuity… always changing it is.
Another option: Maybe this is the end before next gen and next time we see her is as President Supergirl in in gen 5. The problem I see with this is that she never got a solid foundation in Rebirth as DC threw her around as a crash test dummy into other arcs. Is it wise to move on without a solid foundation and a surrounding cast?
I have seen suggestions that she be moved to Wonder Comics as a better fit as DC has gotten too dark to fit her profile. This could be a good suggestion, maybe the best of the options?
Is she just faded out into obscurity for another 20 years?
Some suggest she should join a team book instead. There are many voices wanting her in the Legion again. Maybe that could be a future?
Whatever her future I hope that we get a proper Supergirl back some day. Let this be the end of angry/evil/infected experiments and I hope the next Kara don’t have to deal with that.
For now I’ll be slipping away from the comics aspect of DC for a while. I had that personal rule about balancing my reading, and even though Superman is going well right now, I’ll be dropping that too when Supergirl is cancelled until her representation is restored. That leaves me with an empty DC pull list most of the weeks now. I’ll still be around for the shows and discussion though.
What are all your thoughts? What happens in the future for Supergirl? What would you like to happen?
Did you see the cancellation coming? Was her comic doomed the minute they turned her dark?
