With the Supergirl show on the horizon, I have been impressed with the sheer amount of coverage the character is getting. And I'll be honest, I was hoping that her character would get covered by Comics Alliance in a 'Comics, Everybody!' strip.
Lo and behold, it happened this week! Here is the link:
So this strip does take a tongue in cheek look at the 'prototype' magic totem Supergirl from Superman #123, Superman throwing Linda into a orphanage, the oddness of Comet, the ickiness of dating Lex, and even the more shrill nature of the initial Loeb reboot and the New 52.
Shockingly, her death in Crisis on Infinite Earths is only mentioned in passing (although as one of the saddest moments in comics!) and without an homage to the cover!
For Supergirl fans it is definitely worth checking out.
But this panel ... far and away ... was my favorite of the piece.
I am an unabashed fan of the Peter David Linda Danvers/Matrix series. So to see that character redone as a 'Scott Pilgrim' like character, earning 'Wings of Fire' was just about perfect.
The perfectionist in me says she never sported the wings while wearing the DCAU uniform. But this strip is a sort of mash-up of her history. It is easily forgiven.
I love the fact that Supergirl is getting all this attention. It has been a long time coming!
