Death Becomes Her
Talk about power. Supergirl was rocking it in this issue. She was amazing. In the collective, she took control over them, she took control over the collective. She took over the collective and sought out Cyborg Superman, who just happened to be her father. That was certainly an unexpected twist. And while he is trying to give his daughter back his body and return to being half of a being, Brianiac is attacking the world. Talk about a world upheaval.
That made it a good issue. Supergirl grew a back bone, a huge back bone and for once stopped acting like some poor whiny girl. Not to say that this isn’t the first time this has happened, but here she took a giant leap forward to build the story. It was a very good issue, not entirely action packed, but the tension and the speed and the urgency that the writer here was trying to bring to show, was evident. That made it worth the read

Psi War: Part Two
Psycho Pirate is still a lame name. Nevertheless, that’s beside the point I guess. Anyway, it has been revealed that he’s not entirely evil but not good either. He wants Superman to be immobilized, well his puppet as he explains who the missing twenty are and who and why they were captured and why the H.I.V.E Queen is working hard on collecting them for her “father” Brainiac. It was certainly an interesting issue when where we got to delve into Superman’s subconscious and see some of his darkest fears. Oh, but the most shocking part was the part where Lois popped out of nowhere to be a psionic superhero, glowing like a lighting rob. But more of that in a bit. Anyway, this was a slow issue was psyche oriented.

Psi War Conclusion
Lois Lane is some sort of psionic battery powered supercharged hero right now after the events of Superman Annual #2 and this time, she came to Superman’s rescue. Not only that, but now she has discovered his true identity. How? Well she did have to go deep within the confines of his head in order to pull him out of where Psycho Pirate put him. So not only is he ready to kick some tushie, but the H.I.V.E. Queen is alive…after being exploded by Psycho Pirate’s psionic powers, so you can imagine just how awful she looks. Oh and let’s not forget Hector Hammond who is alive and well. So all of them come to the rescue of Superman and super charge him and distract Psycho Pirate long enough for Supers to get that darn mask off him. So all’s well that ends well. Lois is back in a comma though, so that can’t be good. And she still knows who he really is. Stay tune next month for the Return of Krypton.
