Supergirl continues to be a standout comic book TV series, right up there with Agent Carter. The three of us watch each new Supergirl Tuesday evening during my son’s supper, making it one of the few current series we all see together.
It’s brisk and fun and surprising – no more so then when we discovered a series regular was actually Martian Manhunter. This week, evil Maxwell Lord made a Bizarro Supergirl who had all of the original’s powers and a few new versions, including flame breath, and the episode managed to touch on all the subplots, ending with the Black Mercy from the classic Moore-Gibbons “For the Man Who Has Everything” story. Wowsers.
