High school is almost never an easy ride and keeping your business private is an even tougher time. Trying being an alien with amazing superpowers added to the mix and secrets are even harder to keep. Somehow, Kara Danvers aka Supergirl is able to do even after a giant sinkhole forms at a track meet that forces her to lose one of her best friends. Now, Supergirl has to figure out if her fellow Kryptonian, Tan-On is a friend or foe in the fourth installment of Supergirl Being Super.

Tan-On was supposedly sent on as an ambassador from Krypton to Earth to make contact and was under strict orders not to interfere with how things were run here, unfortunately for him, he was turned into a science experiment for the US Military at a base in Kansas. Which, let’s be honest, isn’t going to make you the friendliest person to your host planet.

Unfortunately, after having been outted as the alien in the last issue, Dolly is being used as bait to sucker Supergirl and Tan-On to LexCorp into rescuing her, which only leads to Kara being kidnapped and our new Kryptonian buddy to save her…naturally causing all hell to break loose.

What maked this book fun is that even through the face of adversity and self-doubt, preservation conquers the day and all the jokes Dolly cracks really lightens the mood, which is exactly what we need from the Maid of Might. Tamaki and Jones never let us down with this series and for that we got a different take on almighty super heroine who isn’t perceived to be as stuffy as paternal cousin.

The Verdict

Supergirl Being Super has to be one of the best adaptations of a DC character that isn’t in cannon. You want this series to be pulled into the multi-verse as part of oh, say Earth-17 any anyone between Earth-7 and Earth-52.
