    I was saying No to your question, interpreting what I meant. I've seen intermittent scans on S_D, so I'm not sure what's going on exactly, but the most recent episode I recall (besides SG leaving the Titans because WG still misses Conner oh so much:roll:) is the one where there's actually a brilliant little interaction between Batman and her (he sends her an empty box that's Super Vision-proof) and then she goes off into space and there's no more talking. So yeah, it's probably better than it was, but she and WG are still only differentiated by their costumes. (godsdamn, flyers should not be wearing skirts. especially short skirts)

    That was a couple of months ago (I was wrong btw, Puckett has only released three issues), but yeah, the second issue ended that storyline and then re-established her origin (where Zor-El wasn't completely insane). Third issue has her dealing with that and then duking it out with Reactron. It's been pretty good, reminds me a bit of his Batgirl run.

    And yeah she still looks pretty similar to Wonder Girl but what can ya do? Give one of them a haircut?

    Are you saying the issue Puckett did where Supergirl gets called for help by Superman in the middle of some mass Green Lantern army defending against aliens (which was during Sinestro Corps War, but these guys werent the Sinestro Corps)? The same issue she spends 15 pages flying through space with no dialogue, no action, no story? Where she gets to the last page, she finds out nothing, bracelet warps her home and she gets in teh shower, then decides to go in another portal that came out of nowhere? That's one of the good issues?

    The only good part was the first couple pages where Batman pranks her with a leadbox present. The rest was nonsensical at best.

    See, this is what I was trying to say, but I've only seen scans.

    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it

    Wait... 15 pages of her flying through space? Like, panels and panels of Supergirl in space? For 15 pages? There must have been something?!?

    Not really, no.

    OK, so issue 1 of this story starts with the lead box thing, then a SC crossover gets going and the GLs send Kara into space to track some ship. Many pages of her tracking it silently through a space-battle. She messes up, gets ported back home, tells everyone she fucked up, Clark looks all forlorn, the lanterns seem pissed off. Kara goes home, is about to take a shower, has an idea, re-opens portal to space (did the Green lanterns not take the portal-ma-bob thing back?)... end of comic.

    Next issue starts with her in her bathroom, about to leave, taking a massive breath... Clark comes in, she explains her idea of using her telescopic vision and x-ray vision at the same time, Clark is all "wow, that's amazing. Personally I found it using lensed light a few hours ago, but your idea was also good..." Then he uses some big green ring-construct telescope a kindly GL built to show her Krypton (or possibly Argos, I forget) from before it was destroyed.

    I like my women how I like my coffee.

    Anally.

    The best part is when they're back in her flat and she says, totally out of nowhere, something about how his mother used to sing to him and he's all "What the fuck are you babbling about now"

    Supergirl was actually a pretty fun character in Brave and the Bold, though.
