Andy Schmidt On Ultragirl

In my review of Crime Syndicate #5 earlier this week, I wondered if Supergirl appearing to be a hero on the backwards morality driven Earth 3 was some sort of commentary by DC Comics on how they think of Kara.

I freely admit that I sometimes overthink things regarding Supergirl given my passionate fandom. 

I also know that I am probably still reeling from a Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow #1 issue which did not work for me at all. 

I posted the review and sent out the tweet link, including writer Andy Schmidt on the tweet. And amazingly, I got a response about my concerns.

On Twitter, he said that his Earth 3 isn't just an inverse of Earth 0. This Crime Syndicate Kara being good doesn't necessarily mean DC regards the main Kara is evil. 

I was very happy to read this. In my heart, I knew this was true. 

But I have seen Kara, in my mind, mistreated a bunch. So it is was good to read it.

And as I have said before, people should be reading Crime Syndicate. It is a very fun book.

well, this is great! Here's hoping Kara survives to become a strong and heroic foil for her cousin on Earth 3!

This is an encouraging statement. Thanks to ANJ for asking the question and to Andy Schmidt for providing an answer.

Glad to see creatives are still responding to you, I may try and find this issue tonight at my LCS...

This also confirms my own sense that this isn't the 'traditional' version of Earth-3 where the bad are good and the good are bad, and I think that's more interesting for sure.
