So even though I don’t watch the show, I have seen a few episodes. What I saw in Supergirl #13, was familiar, yet still brought other elements of the DC Universe to play. The android Indigo, and the Emerald Empress. Many Legion fans are excited at the prospect of the Legion of Super-Heroes appearing on the CW series this fall. Many of us hope for a new ongoing series, either on TV or in the comics.
More and more elements from the Legion have been making their way into the DCU in recent days. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it suggests that Legion fandom is alive and well. But one thing I’ve always appreciated about the franchise is that it operates outside of the mainstream DC continuity. That may change, if things keep up the way they have.
But Supergirl #13 represents and end to current events, and promises a new start for Supergirl #14. Her world is turned upside down, in ways a hero should never experience. But that just ups the ante for the Girl of Steel. Perhaps it’s a good time for casual fans to take a closer look.
