Last issue, absorbed by Black Banshee. This issue, absorbed by Nanotech. Next issue, absorbed by her own vagina. FWAAASH!
Looks like between last issue and this issue, a substantial amount of time has passed. Since the first ten issues took place in about a day and a half (I'm estimating!), ten months or so must have passed since the end of Issue #10 to get Supergirl caught up with the rest of the New 52. Tommy and Siobhan have been living in Siobhan's flat in New York while Supergirl has been, well, elsewhere. But she spends a lot of time with the siblings and is slowly learning English. So far, after ten months, she's learned how to say "Hello." This issue, she's planning on learning how to say "First Date."
I knew she hadn't slept between issues #1 and #10. But she still hasn't had any rest? Maybe my ten month guess was way too high!
Kara has a slice of jalapeno pizza with extra jalapenos. Or maybe she just tried a slice of pepperoni and her super senses turned the heat of the pepperoni into a nuclear reaction in her mouth. She heads outside to super vomit when a T-1000 disguised as the cop from The Village People decides she's had enough downtime.
That's a doozy of step up to that door.
While other heroes tend to keep the fisticuffs to a two to three page minimum, Supergirl always goes all out and spends ten pages exchanging blows with her adversary. Eventually, she accidentally uses her X-ray vision to see inside the Nanoguy's skull where she notices a small control mechanism. She blasts a pinpoint laserbeam of heat vision into his skull, destroying it. The suit sloughs off in a grey ooze and the man beneath falls over unconscious. Kara leaves him in the park and heads back to pick up Tom.
She is dangerous! Unless Siobhan has taught her that shaking hands is a better greeting alternative to punching faces.
Supergirl #11 Rating: No change. I just feel like this comic is wasting so much potential. Supergirl finding a place in this world and forging new relationships with a variety of humans would be a lot more interesting than Supergirl feeling lonely and getting in a huge fight every issue. It feels like this comic is only on Issue Four while the rest of the New 52 have been out for a full year. Well, maybe not all of the other ones! Reading Green Arrow feels like an eternity.
