Confussed overall - Superbunny
Iím very much puzzled by this comic book. I found it disappointing and difficult to read. For what I understood the story goes something like this: Kara, the girl in the pink that I assume is in the future Supergirl is possessed by superman's mother. I think she was supposed to marry Kal-El. So the comic starts off in the land of Kandor. Page one, first four panels show female guards controlling a huge line of various creatures and the word balloons narrate that "the misguided souls who tried to potion this paradise have been uprooted" Apparently, they are going to eliminate all the Non-k alike. Page two shows a different girl... I'm guessing power girl, because it's similar to the girl in the cover with electric handcuffs as a prisoner. The background is dark as if it was in a completely different place or time. The next page shows Kara in the pink dress and the "mother" looking at a screen where they can see this other prisoner girl. She said that she had tried to killed her once, or so she dreamt, and the mother comments that it was possible but that she had been saved to not face those moments. Then there is another full page panel with her looking in a mirror hoping that Kal-el will like her. Then it goes back to the prisoner who's bleeding now and the mother is now attacking her, and she now knows that she is telepathically controlling Kara. Then Superman appears and they meet talking about the weeding night present and all of a sudden Kara has a vision of her killing Kal-el, after that there's a strange panel sequence in the left upper corner a meeting between batman, superman, the" mother" and others the rest of the page of angry Kal-el flying in space passing planets, fighting monsters, and then the mother grabs him from the head and starts controlling his mind. Of course this appears to be the past because in the next panel they are back in room were they were. The mother walks in both Kara and Kal-el hold their head in pain like she's controlling them again. So Kara realizes this and now the mother tell him that she has betrayed her. Kara however beats him and somehow again we jump to the prisoner scene that's about to be killed but Kara appears and releases her. There's more, Kal El shows up again and they girls recognize each other. They beat Kal-El and before Kara kills him the mother offers a key to Argo city. She takes it and power girl and they leave. Now the confusion came in first because the female characters look very similar. If it wasn't for the hair color the reader definitely has a hard time identifying them. Also, The relationship between the scene with Kara and the mother and the switching to the prisoner, who we have no idea who she is, just doesnít work for me. I would have to say that some of the transitions are just to non-Sequitir. Super Girl never appear with her superhero outfit either. Maybe the story would have been more clear with a clear narrator on top of the word balloons. I did like the style and the lines used for the comic. I like the digital touch to it and how the panels are arranged horizontally.
