Supergirl #0 Preview
Well, Supergirl #0 is coming out tomorrow but for people who can't wait and want a little taste, DC's Source blog has posted a preview. Here is the link: http://www.dccomics.com/galleries/supergirl-0-preview
This is only the first 5 pages but there are some major bombshells already. Definitely worth checking out. But here were the two things that already grabbed me.
As I hypothesized way back here Zor-El was part of the World Killer project and Kara was an occupant in that empty 5th tube. Moreover, Zor is lying to Kara telling her he is only 'gene scanning' her when he is obviously doing more. And Kara has no recollection of what he is doing. She doesn't even remember being put in the tube.
It is creepy and a bit obsessed. But it is clear he loves his daughter willing to do most anything for her. I suppose these 'experiments could explain the mutated power set she had. He may have augmented her.
And we see Kara playing with her little cousin Kal.
Jor-El talks about the rift between he and his brother, a rift formed because of Zor-El's 'experiments', experiments Zor has earlier admitted to Kara 'push boundaries'. So maybe it isn't cloning (which we know is illegal on Kara) but gene enhancement?
It does make me wonder if Jor-El might be a better candidate for 'Who Shot Zor-El?' than I initially thought. Back here I said 'no way'. Maybe I should reconsider.
So I suppose I should wait to read the entire issue. But if Kara is somehow 'enhanced', does it make her something of a Matrix?
