Supergirl #57

Overall: With the Godship still ravaging Bizarro World, Supergirl comes up with a plan that involves turning the blue sunlight of Bizarro World on herself and Bizarro, thereby helping Bizarro create new clones of himself. Bizarro, Bizarrogirl and Supergirl lead an army of Krypt-Zarros against the Godship and it's minions, but the aliens prove too much for the Krypt-Zarros and Bizarro's side begins to slowly lose the battle. Sensing imminent defeat, Bizarrogirl turns tail and runs away. Supergirl decides it's time to come up with a new plan and tells Bizarro to use the “solid-vision” Bizarrogirl demonstrated on Earth against the Godship with the hopes of encasing it in metal. Unfortunately, Bizarro has NO idea what this “solid-vision” is, so Supergirl leaves the battle to try to find Bizarrogirl. SG finds BG and explains that even though her Bizarro clone may be frightened, she has to try to help her people. BG decides to go with Supergirl, and with Supergirl charging Bizarrogirl up, Bizarrogirl manages to totally encase the Godship in metal, ending its threat. With the Godship defeated, Supergirl and Bizarro begin rebuilding Bizarro World, while Bizarrogirl vanishes. Before leaving, Supergirl manages to hunt down Bizarrogirl(AGAIN!), and learns that her Bizarro clone was feeling guilty about her actions on Earth. Supergirl has a heart to heart with Bizarrogirl and when she is done trying to lift Bizarrogirl's spirits, she gets on the rocket and begins the trip back to Earth.

Hmm... I was really enjoying this storyline... Until this issue. I don't know why, but it just didn't connect with me like the past couple of issues did. Maybe it was the way the Godship was defeated, or maybe it was Bizarrogirl's self-loathing and cowardice, but somewhere along the line this story went from great to just another comic. I mean, it was still a perfectly acceptable comic, but that was all it was. Oh well, hopefully things rebound for me come the next issue.

Score: 7 out of 10.I don't know whether to laugh about the fact Bizarro Arsenal is carrying a dead cat as a weapon, or to cry...


  1. LMAO! I somehow missed this and that Arsenal has a Cat as a weapon is priceless! Oh man, that's almost like a poke at Krul's writing. That's so great.

  2. I am SOOOOO glad you found that pic, JT! That pic was one of those times when I literally let out a loud, "BWA-HAHAHAH!!!" while reading a comic. It was just so frigging perfect!
