So there I was Saturday morning, watching My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with the supergirls at home.
During the show (an interesting riff on Indiana Jones, complete with a Belloq pony), a commercial for the new DC Comics Scribblenauts Unmasked video game was aired.
Now I have seen still shots of the game and heard about the upcoming variants. But now I would get to see some actual game play footage.
Well one of the longer scenes on the commercial is the super-team flying around Metropolis and fighting Lex Luthor.
Here we see Superman, Steel, and ... Supergirl!!
Here is a close-up of Supergirl from the game, wearing the New 52 uniform!
Even the haircut looks more in line with the New 52 Kara.
I suppose I should be happy that there is some consistency between the merchandise and the comics.
Later we see them fighting Lex around the Daily Planet globe. Lex even has Jimmy Olsen as a hostage!
The play itself looks fun. Apparently you can simple type in a box what you want and if the game recognizes the word, the item appears. We see Batman summon the Batmobile like that earlier in the ad.
The ad closes with a rapid fire pan shot through the myriad of DC characters available in the game. If you are looking for your favorite character you might need to watch it in slow motion.
At last we have a great shot of Supergirl (standing behind Zenturion?? A little known character from Grant Morrison's first JLA run?). This is definitely our New 52 Supergirl, right down to the knee-less boots.
Anyways, any time I see Supergirl prominently displayed in a 'mainstream' product, I have to trumpet it. DC could have put Superboy in that scene above or Wonder Woman or Firestorm. But it was Supergirl who was chosen!
