PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Superman and Batman work together to battle evil in many forms.  

Critically, Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl is the most popular Supergirl origin story in Post-Crisis continuity. Importantly, in an alien contact Supergirl arrives on Earth. And a dangerous menace rises that threatens DC’s Trinity.

Together, writer Jeph Loeb and superstar artists Michael Turner and Peter Steigerwald collaborate on the story. Really, the writing shines on the paranoia of alien invasions.

Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of Loeb’s run on Superman/Batman: muscular, bold, violent. Moreover, Darkseid vs Superman!

Indeed, share this Paperback to fans of Superman and on occasions of anniversaries and Valentine’s Day. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Superman and Batman! And Supergirl!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl deals with Supergirl’s most popular origin story. In fact, the Hardcover was a sell-out at the time.

Importantly, as the Girl of Steel causes tensions within DC’s Trinity, a new threat rises. Dangerously, Darkseid has set his sights on Superman’s Kryptonian cousin. And Supergirl must choose between Earth and Apokolips.

The comic is good for your collection. You will definitely marvel at Michael Turner’s strong pencils, the characters’ erotic physiques and the color palette.

CUSTOMER REVIEW RATINGS

This product has 116 global ratings with a customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5.

The customer review said: “Michael Turner’s artwork is the epitome of what comic art should like. In the introduction, Jeph Loeb said that Turner drew the best looking females in all of comics. I’d happen to agree with him. Not only the women look good though. Turner’s Batman is one of the coolest looking versions of Batman ever. Even as much as I love Jim Lee’s art, Turner’s Batman put Lee’s to shame. Like Jim Lee, Turner’s super-detailed work caused him to become one of the hottest artists in comics. It’s really sad that Turner passed away a few years after this volume came out.”

There are seven negative reviews. One negative review pointed the poor plot: “This was a shame. I think supergirl is a cool character and can be done well, but this just makes clear that DC has no idea what to do with her. There is no characterization, no back up characters and the story can only loosely be called a “story.” The art is cool and it seems that is all this book has to offer. It’s a real disappointment, especially after Peter David’s run on the previous Supergirl (linda danvers) which was excellent. Stick with Many Happy Returns, possibly the best supergirl story ever (along with Crisis on Infinite Earths).”

Overall, this comic was good.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback and Hardcover format available.
  • Popular Supergirl origin story.
  • DC’s Trinity.
  • Hardcover sell-out at the time.

NEGATIVE:

  • Hypersexualized females.
  • Poor plot.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this comic as the most popular Supergirl origin story in Post-Crisis continuity.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

IN SUPERVILLAINS

THE FIRST COSTUME WAS THE SUPERMAN COSTUME

In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #466, Superman fails to save the Excalibur crew. Originally, Cyborg Superman was an astronaut named Hank Henshaw. In fact, he was on the Lexcorp space shuttle called the Excalibur. Namely, the team consisted of Hank, his wife Terri, Steven and Jim Garrison. Caught in an accident caused by cosmic radiation, their bodies were destroyed.

Only their minds survived by creating themselves bodies. Tragically, Steven used pure cosmic radiation whereas Jim used rocks. Meanwhile, Hank’s body was decaying. On the other hand, Terri’s body was disappearing into an alternate dimension. However, Superman failed to save them and all astronauts died, except Terri. Despondently, Superman blamed their accident on his tossing the Eradicator into the sun. But, Terri confirmed their accident occurred before.

In 'Superman' (1993) #79, Cyborg Superman wears the SUperman costume at the White House.

CYBORG SUPERMAN, THE MAN OF TOMORROW

In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #468, Hank survived. Apparently, he transferred his mind into Lexcorp’s mainframe. When he appeared as a robot before Terri, the shock killed her. Strangely, Hank beamed himself onto Superman’s Kryptonian Birthing matrix orbiting Earth. Then, fashioning a space craft, he left Earth to learn about the universe. Soon, Hank would blame Superman for his wife’s death. In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #500, Cyborg Superman appears in Metropolis. Moreover, he is wearing the Superman costume.

In ‘Superman’ (1993) #79, Cyborg Superman stops a terrorist attack at the White House. According to White House scans, he is Superman’s genetic match. In the issue, Ron Tourpe, Clark Kent’s Daily Planet replacement is working on assignment. During the terrorist attack, Cyborg Superman withstands a barrage of energy blasts. Indeed, which Tourpe confirms the original Superman could not. Eventually, in “Reign of the Supermen,” Cyborg Superman would use Mongul and Warworld to destroy Coast City.

THE SECOND COSTUME WAS ON APOKOLIPS

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey,’ Cyborg Superman resurfaces. Previously, at the end of “Reign of the Supermen,” Superman shattered Cyborg Superman’s body. So, he did by vibrating his left hand at an incredible speed. But, the cyborg survived having previously downloaded his consciousness on Doomsday’s back.

In ‘Superman/Doomsday’ #1, Cyborg Superman guides Doomsday’s lifeless body to Apokolips. On course to Apokolips, Captain Slaven encounters an asteroid floating in space. After a scan, there is no sign of organic life form. So, he orders the asteroid into his space freighter. Terrifyingly, the crew realizes it is Doomsday. When they try to dispose of the cargo, it is already too late. Horrifyingly, Doomsday slaughters them.

In 'Superman/Doomsday' (1994) #2, Cyborg Superman resurrects with an Apokoliptian exo-armor upgrade.

THE APOKOLIPTIAN EXO-ARMOR UPGRADE

In ‘Superman/Doomsday’ (1994) #2, Hank Henshaw has a costume upgrade. Finally, Doomsday lands on Apokolips by cargo ship. Immediately, the Ultimate slaughters the Apokoliptian army. In his resurrection, Cyborg Superman rebuilds his Kryptonian body and cybernetic parts. Here, he uses exo-armor from dead Apokoliptian soldiers.

Notably, the exo-armor upgrades Henshaw’s durability. Indeed, Cyborg Superman is able to withstand a full blast of heat vision from Superman. Even Darkseid’s Omega Effect has no effect. But at his peak, the Omega Force destroyed Cyborg Superman. At the end, Darkseid imprisons Cyborg Superman’s consciousness in a Father Box.

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey' (1994) #2, Cyborg Superman withstands Darkseid's Omega Beams.

THE THIRD COSTUME WAS THE GRANDMASTER COSTUME

In ‘Green Lantern’ (2007) #22, Cyborg Superman joins the Sinestro Corps. Previously, Henshaw led the Manhunters as Grandmaster. During the battle against the Green Lanterns, most of his organic body was destroyed. Now, the cyborg is being imprisoned on Oa. There, he is being questioned by the Guardians of the Universe. Particularly, about his knowledge of their secret: the 52 parallel universes of the DC multiverse. Surprisingly, the Sinestro Corps attacks the Green Lantern Corps. In addition, Superboy-Prime is freed from his sciencell.

Separately, and Cyborg Superman, they are transported to Qward in the Antimatter universe. After the attack, the Ion entity is ripped from Kyle Rayner’s heart. There, the cyborg is repaired and with them joins the Sinestro Corps. In ‘Tales Of The Sinestro Corps: Cyborg Superman’ (2007), Cyborg Superman finally defeats Superman. Sporting the Grandmaster costume, Henshaw has added durability and strength. And he is amped by the Yellow Lantern ring. Definitely, rocking the costume is one of Cyborg Superman’s best fashion moves.

In 'Tales Of The Sinestro Corps: Cyborg Superman' (2007), Cyborg Superman finally defeats Superman with the Yellow Lantern ring.

THE PANDEMONIUM IN METROPOLIS PROVES ELSEWORLDS ARE DARK: CYBORG GOES ONLINE AND SPREADS THE ALE VIRUS TO THE INTERNET

Cyborg is Boom-Tubed to Metropolis. Immediately, he goes online. The ALE virus spread from its patient zero as a techno-organic virus to the Internet. Cyborg attempted to firewall himself but it was too late. an Elseworlds story, was this a celebration of darkness, a romanticization of horror stories? As the pandemonium in Metropolis will prove, Elseworld stories tend to be too dark. That may also be the case for mainstream continuity stories.

Reminiscent of the best horror stories, the ALE virus jumped from media to media spreading horror. People literally tried to tear the equation from their heads. They have turned into zombies. At the home of Scott Free and Big Barda, Superman succeeded in recruiting the heroes, when suddenly, he heard the world screaming. He flew into the streets and saw the pandemonium. Distraught, he sped to his family and destroyed the cellphone and the television screen with his heat vision before Jon and Damian could access them.

In the previous universe, Galan lived on Taa. Upon surviving the destruction of his home universe, Galan incubated in a Cosmic Egg merging with the Sentience of the Universe. Emerging from the Cosmic Egg, he was observed by a Watcher who realized the tremendous power the nascent Galactus possessed to feed on the living energy of planets but the Watcher decided not to kill Galactus.

Sensing his hunger, Galactus consumed the nearby planet of Archeopia.

Read on!

After emerging from his incubation cube millions of years after the Big Bang, Galactus consumed the nearby planet Archeopia; this was the first world to fall prey to his insatiable hunger. Galactus felt compelled to create a monument to his dead homeworld Taa, which existed in the previous universe, and to the ravaged planet Archeopia.

Galactus used the remains of Archeopia as the raw material from which he created the enormous Taa II. Construction took millennia to complete, due to Galactus’s need to take breaks in search of sustenance. When it was completed it engulfed the entire Archeopian System.

Galactus intended Taa II to surpass any natural world in size, beauty and splendor. Based on accounts from the few beings to step foot in it, such as Mister Fantastic, Galactus easily met his goal.

Indeed, Taa II is so massive several planets and even a star are held captive by its gravitational pull.
