Well, the timing was right on the money, as the latest 'Who Is Superwoman?' poll ended at 8AM this morning, results posted above. And at 11AM, I was in my local comic book store buying Supergirl #40 and getting the answer.
To be right up front, I will not reveal who Superwoman is here until I review the issue which most likely will be Friday. (Of course, it is spoiled on many message boards if people don't want to wait.) I want to give everyone some time to get to the stores and find out on their own. What I will say is that she is one of the choices on the poll (and not 'other'). At least I included the right guess. Congratulations will be spread to those who voted for the right pick after the reveal!
As always, I would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone for visiting the blog and voting. 68 votes is more than I expected and the spread of guesses shows this truly was a mystery.
One thing I found surprising was the overwhelming support for Lucy Lane. Lucy won the poll getting 20% of the vote. If it is Lucy, lots of explanation will be needed to explain powers, Kryptonian language, and motivation.
I also was somewhat shocked to see Linda Danvers was a close second. The same explanations as with Lucy will be needed if Superwoman is Linda. 'My' Linda wouldn't be the murderer Superwoman is.
Lastly, as with all the Superwoman votes, Alura was a presence with 'insane Alura' coming in third. I have reviewed the case for Alura in prior posts.
Anyways, we all find out this week in Supergirl #40.
At some point I will do a review of all the clues and how they point to the real identity. At that point, everyone who guessed correctly has earned the right to brag.
