Supergirl #24 review

When we last saw Supergirl, she was dead, her flesh stolen by the Cyborg Superman in his bid to learn who he once was. And the answer? Kara’s presumed dead father, Zor-El.

We’re still in the Superman Family’s H’el on Earth crossover, with the Flash trying to rescue Supergirl from the influence of creepy Kryptonian H’el. Kara, though, doesn’t believe she needs rescuing. She’s bought H’el’s claims that together they can go back in time and rescue her homeworld and thinks that Superman is having his Justice […]
