In the classic Supergirl comics, Kara Danvers usually struggles with dealing with both her normal life and the phenomenal events that happen in her comic book world. In the TV show, however, Kara deals with nothing but the added pressure of her fighting abilities and trying to maintain the truth about her true identity. The struggles of the Kara Danvers are often shown through the various strips that the show's writer, Greg Berlanti, draws from. Below are some of my favorites of the strips.
This Supergirl Comic Strip looks like something from a sci-fi movie. It's actually quite comfy, and is full of fun Supergirl fun facts. We first see Kara at her soccer practice, dressed in her Superman uniform (which she wears for much of the comic). Of course, in many cases, in the Maihack universe, Kara is obsessed with costumes and some of the strips have actually been devoted to her changing things up.
This Supergirl Comic Strip looks like a scene out of a superhero movie. Supergirl has only recently started learning that she is actually an alien, and has spent the whole season trying to convince people of that fact. In this strip, she meets up with her new powers powered by science, and ends up losing control. This one of the most comical Supergirl comics to date, especially if you like your girls a little rough around the edges.
This comic takes after the old Justice League comics, which feature many iconic characters. In this one of the new Supergirl Comic Strip, Supergirl realizes she needs to step up her game a bit, and goes up against the Justice League. The story delves into the relationship Supergirl has with her cousin, Jonny, who is a member of the JL. team.
This one of the newest Supergirl Comic Strip has Superman and the original Green Lantern joining forces, and the result is the Admiral! This group of super heroes is often featured in other comics, and they always end up stealing the spotlight. The Admiral is an avid user of technology, especially in battle, as he has a BatMobile. He is also a member of the JL. and has taken up the leadership position of their board of directors.
The last strip we are going to discuss is the classic "Sometime during their travels, Supergirl and the team encounter the planetoidsarium!" This classic Superman comic strip has been written by Jerry Seinfeld and has a lot of humor, with each character getting their own "Sometime during their travels, Superman..."line. It is very funny, and is a great introduction to Superman if you are a fan. It was later turned into a feature length film, which starred George Clooney and Bill Murray. You can tell that the two of them really enjoyed working on the movie.
Finally, let's talk about the second highest placed Supergirl Comic Strip, "doctor strange". This one featured a very unlikely pairing, in that Superman and the famous Batman were fighting each other, in what was meant to be a friendly, quiet moment between the two. In this issue, the Riddler actually commits a crime by giving Superman a mind altering drug. He then says he has to go to the same hospital where he did the crime, so he has Doctor Strange's help, and flies off. I would say that this was a fun addition to the comics, but not a very memorable one.
There you have it. A quick look at the two most popular Supergirl Comic Strip topics from DC comics. They are: the first issue of Supergirl, and the latest round of red Lanterns. Which of these two would you like to read? Which do you think is more fun?
