Top 5 Moments From ‘Supergirl’ #1


The Girl of Steel is back to try and save her new home of National City. Her biggest problem so far won’t be Kryptonite or Lex Luthor, but will instead simply be trying to fit into human society. These were the top five moments to come out of her new series as she works on keeping up her secret identity.


5. The New Cat

While taking the time to set up Supergirl’s new daily life, the issue introduces a familiar face to the readers. Cat Grant, coming off as professionally cut throat as she does in the new Supergirl TV show makes her introduction during a hostage situation. She takes a moment to insist she had everything totally under control with the gun wielding maniacs and makes it clear she is not one to be messed with.


4. Krypton Vs. Earth

As the issue focuses on Supergirl trying to adjust to her new life and her new identity, flashbacks to her past are made throughout the issue. They clearly point out just how much better Kara had it on Krypton and her new home isn’t exactly giving her the warm welcome she was hoping for. The segments offer more proof transferring to a new school can be intense.


3. Brutal Truth

Adding to Supergirl’s worst day ever is a nice little pep talk by her boss. Director Chase lets Supergirl know that her research into Kryptonian culture has shown her just how flawed they were. She proceeds to tell Supergirl how the planet pretty much doomed itself and won’t allow rash actions of a certain Kryptonian teenager to be anywhere near as reckless. Who needs super villains when your boss is Director Chase?


2. Driving Lesson

Driving can be one of the best times in a teenagers life. Unless you are working on trying to master parallel parking while controlling your super strength. It’s a joke which has been told a hundred times before but still, watching the frustration Kara endures as she takes a driving lesson is very entertaining and memorable.


1. Daddy’s Home

The last thing you want after a long day is to get home and find a problem on your doorstep. The issue ends with Supergirl trying to take a breather at the Fortress of Solitude, but soon finds someone else is home. The Cyborg Superman is not only there but he also insists he is Kara’s father. This last intense image was all it took to steal the number one stop on this list.
