Wonderful story. Told beautifully from The Girl Of Steel's point of view, the story is basic and interweaves her into the DC Universe where it turns out everybody is out to get her, including Lex Luthor and his cunning plan. Funny, moving, and great use of tying her into Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman's history.
The usual fantastic quality from writer Jeph Loeb.
4.5/5 (Screw it! 5/5)

Not that bad. 28 July 2006
By Outsider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'll be the first to admit it isnt the best arc ever written. The whole "new girl on a new planet she doesnt know" angle gets beaten to death and becomes quite predictable. However the art is very good and The sotry has some depth, which is more than one may say about a lot of comics out there. Over all its a good read, not a great one, but a good one and most importantly for me, it didnt bore. The effect of black kryptonite was a suprise for me which wasnt expected And the revamping of the characters origin by making her originally older than Kal and then finding herself to be youger than him was quite refreshing.

I bought the individual comics and am planning on buying the paperback.

Disappointing 3 Dec. 2006
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I normally associate the name Jeph Loeb with words like "great", "innovative", and "groundbreaking"; but you won't find any of that here with his launch of Supergirl. Going back to his run on Superman/Batman, Supergirl: Power finds Superman's post-Crisis cousin Kara Zor-El donning the red, yellow, and blue suit of her cuz in her first adventures as a super hero. In this collection, she has run-in's with members of the JLA, meets the JSA and more notably her counterpart Power Girl, as well as Superboy, Poison Ivy, and Lex Luthor, as well as a duplicate. Loeb's writing here is below the kind of superhero yarns he usually crafts, which is a gigantic disappointment. His dialogue is weak and the story progression is predictable. There's some small tie-ins to Infinte Crisis, but even for completists of that series, this can be avoided. Ian Churchill's art features the kind of busty babes and muscled heroes you'd come to expect, and it's pretty well done for the most part, despite some cheesecake shots. All in all, Supergirl: Power is a disappointing work from one of the best and most well known names in all of comicdom, and while it may be worth a look for some, it won't hurt to do without it.

GOT THIS FOR HARLEY 9 May 2012
By fmwaalex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
SUPERGIRL
POWER

Ah yes we all know of the super one called Superman but what about a little lady called Supergirl. To me I have always found her to be more interesting then the goody goody Kent. Don't ask me why but I was never really that into Superman. Supergirl had been gone for a while but she was brought back to life in the Superman/Batman series. Kara Zor-El then got her all new series and this friends along with Superman/Batman # 19 is the first five issues of that series.

Kara is in a new world and it seems this new world that she is supposed to protect does not want her. She has to deal with an over bearing cousin and his friend Batman, add in just about every other person in the DCU don't trust her. Lex Luthor is out there and he just may become a big player in all of this. Why is he interested in her and why is everyone else skeptical, well she just may have a dark side to her.

I will admit that while I do enjoy Kara I bought this because of the Harley Quinn appearance. I am in love with her, I know it is unhealthy. She's a comic character, I' am a real person but we will find a way, we will find a way. Any way I really did enjoy this story from beginning to end and the art here was excellent. I will say that the first half of the story seemed better paced and planned out. The second half while good could have been a bit longer. Her splitting into two [bad/good] could have been more epic in my opinion. Still over all it was good.

I wouldn't say that this is a classic but it sure is a fun read and I am sure most would agree. I do recommend this volume for any comic fans out there. It is a nice self discovery story and a coming of age type story. Like I said though, I really did get this for Harley. Oh Harley how I love thee.

SUPERGIRL IS BACK! 31 Oct. 2006
By Early - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Superman cousin is back. Kara Zor-El (Supergirl) This time she is the real deal. Not like the other fake Supergirls that were out before.

This book has lots of action in it. Supergirl and then a copy, takes on: Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, JSA, Superboy, Teen Titans, the Outsiders, Justice League of America, a copy of herself, Batman, Superman, WonderWoman,and Lex.

In this book:

Superman/Batman #19, Supergirl #1-5.

If you want to see how she comes back to DC Comics get: Superman/Batman:Supergirl vol.2. #8-13.

Supergirl is a top DC sales comic book. Kara Zor-El is back for good!
Had potential to be more than this 3 May 2015
By Luquillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Originally written 10-2-11

After surviving her battle with Darkseid and spending a little bit more time under Wonder Woman's wing. Supergirl believes she's ready to take on the responsibilities of being a superhero on her own. To her chagrin, Superman and Batman are constantly monitoring her movements, but she has reason to believe they aren't the only ones watching. In addition, she feels completely out of place, and she decides to seek out advice from super beings around her age. -summary

Jeph Loeb is among those hard hitting names in the comic book business. When a fan hears it, you automatically think classic and with very good reason to, especially in the case of Supergirl. Loeb brought the character back from obscurity in Superman/Batman #8, which would soon be reprinted in TPB form Superman/Batman - Supergirl. This title is the follow up to that story and it reprints Superman/Batman #19 along with Supergirl 1 - 5. Unfortunately, Loeb didn't really bring his A game here. I think he fumbled what could have been an outstanding coming of age story by turning it into an all out brawl fest.

Now in regards to the action, it does have a few decent moments where Supergirl mixes it up with an old enemy of Superman's, along with a few other heroes. Most notably, she takes on the Justice League due to a certain change. The problem with these battles for me, all save for one, really didn't accomplish anything outside of how powerful Supergirl is by breaking Superboy's jaw with a single blow. I guess that was the point, but we already know that anyone with a "S" on their chest is immensely powerful.

I think Loeb's secondary intention was to reveal how much of a threat an uncontrolled Kryptonian can actually be, as if we didn't already know that either. If this was the route he was taking, then the battles should have been a little more than, "oh sorry, I over-reacted!" The only thing this path made clear for me was the lack of creativity in DC's superheroes where you have so many carbon copies. No wonder Marvel ran the super group genre with the X-Teams, Fantastic Four, and Avengers for so many years.

The plot follows Supergirl as she heads to Gotham and invades some of Batman's rogues gallery, and later she sets out for some answers running into heroes like; Powergirl, Stargirl, the JSA, Teen Titans etc. It has a few interesting moments, and the small bits of Kara's character development creates a few questions with several answers on the way; but thanks to the heavy focus on action that really doesn't go anywhere, it really didn't receive the attention I think it should have. Thankfully, by the end, everything is all cleared up, but the journey felt a bit too repetitive and by the numbers.

Ian Churchill's artwork helps saves this arc. The artwork is very nice with some beautiful illustrations. There was definitely some attention to detail when displaying the physical difference between Supergirl and Powergirl. Even one of the characters mentions the difference in regards to their bust. The action panels have a good amount of full contact by way of painful looking blows. I can imagine someone stopping at a bookstore and being sold on the artwork alone.

In closing, this first outing for the Maiden of Might was pretty disappointing. However, it did get the job done and this was a good introduction for the post-crisis Supergirl. I recommend it to fans of DC, and if you enjoyed her debut story then there's nothing wrong with checking it out. I only advise to come in with low expectations.

Pros: Outstanding artwork

Cons: Could have been more than a mere beat'em up
