Review: Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1

A new Supergirl comic in the current “age” of DC is full of potential. With the changes concerning the rest of the Superman line of characters, Supergirl is primed for the spotlight and an opportunity to stand out. Compared to Superman’s unflinching stance for good and Jonathan Kent’s needing to learn, there’s space for a hero who bridges the gap between the two and shows it’s not a boys club. But, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 is an unexpected detour from that potential. Instead, we get Supergirl channeling drunk Superman from Superman III and it works, just not as a Supergirl story.

Written by Tom King, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 isn’t a bad start. It just doesn’t feel like a Supergirl story. Off on an alien planet to support her birthday she comes across a young girl who wants revenge against the man who killed her father. Drunkenly, Supergirl rejects the plea and is later forced into the situation. With a red sun on the planet, this is a weakened Supergirl lacking much of what makes her super. There’s an interesting concept there and potential but as the opening story for the next great chapter, it doesn’t feel all that super. It’s rather dark and everyone comes off as a dick.

The idea of Supergirl fighting on a medieval-ish planet without her powers sounds interesting. It forces the character to use more than her flight and strength, and other abilities, to get things done. That’s present and is the more interesting aspect of the issue. There’s also Supergirl drunk and hungover which itself also has potential. She comes off as a little… well, a drunk I don’t want to be around. She’s not likeable and the most likeable character, Krypto, isn’t given much to do beyond adding drama to the mix.

The art by Bilquis Evely is solid. The alien world has an interesting look to it and Supergirl too looks fantastic as her messed up self. But, the opportunity to really deliver something strange and different is lost at times. It looks really good but there’s just a level of detail that it never quite reaches. It’s a world that kind of feels empty for some reason. The color by Matheus Lopes and lettering Clayton Cowles helps bring together the comic and again, it looks really good but it never quite amazes.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 is an interesting comic. It’d be fine as a miniseries on top of an ongoing. It’d be fine as an arc in an ongoing. But, as the first issue to establish the character, it kind of fails. Supergirl comes off as an ass here. She’s not a hero I want to be around but instead a female Guy Gardner. There’s little super in this Supergirl unless the creators were going for super-asshole.

Wonder Girl #1

There’s a Super Shake-Up for Superman Come July

There’s pretty big changes coming for the Superman Family in July. There’s a new Man of Steel to protect Earth, Sueprgirl is on a mission to catch a murderous fugitive, and Clark Kent is on a mission to liberate Warworld and he’ll need some help to do it.

Superman: Son of Kal-El

The action begins on July 13 as a new ongoing monthly series, Superman: Son of Kal-El, replaces the current Superman monthly title. Written by Tom Taylor with art by John Timms, this series follows the new adventures of the son of Superman as he’s entrusted with the protection of Earth.

Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He’s fought evil with Robin (Damian Wayne), traveled across galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather, and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father could no longer be Superman. There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon. It’s time for the son to wear the cape of his father and continue the never-ending battle as a symbol of hope for his home planet.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow

Arriving July 20, issue #2 of this eight-issue limited series by Tom King and artist Bilquis Evely continues Kara Zor-El’s journey of self-discovery and emergence from the shadow of her famous cousin.

Supergirl, Krypto, and their new friend Ruthye find themselves stranded with no way to pursue Krem, the murderous king’s agent. Each moment this fugitive roams free, the more beings come dangerously close to dying by his hand. There is no time to lose, so our heroes must now travel across the universe the old-fashioned way…by cosmic bus! Little do they know their journey will be a dark one, filled with terrors that not even the Maid of Might is prepared to face!

Action Comics #1033

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Daniel Sampere keep Superman on the front lines in his battle to free the prisoners of Warwold in Action Comics #1033, on sale Tuesday, July 27. This issue takes the action to Atlantis and the Fortress of Solitude, where Warworld refugees have taken possession of dangerous Warworld tech, bringing it to Aquaman’s undersea kingdom and risking an all-out war that even Superman may not be able to prevent. Meanwhile, some of the escaped Warworld prisoners have found the Fortress of Solitude…and along with it, Lois Lane!

And in this 40-page blockbuster’s second feature, Midnighter has gone deep into the Trojan compound and found a very unexpected guest whose path he crossed in Future State—none other than Shilo Norman, a.k.a. Mister Miracle!

Superman and the Authority

If Superman is to free the prisoners of Warworld, he’s going to need help, the kind of help that doesn’t scream “Justice League.” Fortunately, multi-Eisner Award-winning writer Grant Morrison and fan-favorite artist Mikel Janín have the solution in the form of a new four-issue limited series, Superman and The Authority.

Launching July 20, this new team will be led by Manchester Black, and combine original members Midnighter and Apollo with new members Enchantress and Natasha Irons, as well as new versions of Lightray and O.M.A.C. This new team will have to learn to work together, and fast, as the Ultra-Humanite has formed his own team of villains to take out the Man of Steel.

This new limited series will help launch an all-new status quo for Superman, setting up story elements that will impact both Action Comics and Superman: Son of Kal-El in the months to come.
