The Qi to Inner Peace (Supergirl #14 Comic Review)

Supergirl #14

Writer: Steve Orlando
Pencils: Jose Luis
Inks: Norm Rapmund
Cover Art: Robson Rocha, Daniel Henriques, and Michael Atiyeh (Variant cover: Stanley “Artgerm” Lau)

Story so Far:

Supergirl is dangerous, untrustworthy, and a killer. That’s what the public believes, and Kara can’t exactly prove them wrong. She’s desperate to get her powers back down to a safe level after that mysterious incident with the Fatal Five.

 

Summary:

Kara goes to Kenan, the Chinese Super-man, to try to find a way, any way, to control her powers again.  Science failed her, both Earthen and Kryptonian. Kenan takes Kara to a man he feels can help her regain the peace she needs. The man, I-Ching, tells her of Qi. She scoffs at first, believing it to be nothing more than a myth, until she puts it into practice. A Red Rocket is shot down and pissed about it. Unable to understand the locals’ fear and ire, he rears back to attack. Kara tries to diffuse the situation, only to have the Red Rocket’s anger faced at her and Kenan. This attack put the Qi lesson into perspective and action.

 

What this could mean (spoiler maybe?):

This arc hints at Kara finding her path in a new way, but with the growing dangers from the new CEO, cough cough, Cat, she has this cut out for her. Hopefully with Kara realigning herself, we’ll see what else the peace brings. Only way to find out, is to eagerly await the next issue.

 

My thoughts:

Supergirl has always had a soft spot in my heart, and Rebirth knows how to hit me just right. The writing, as always, is fantastic. The art is detailed and builds the world seamlessly. Claps for you, Orlando, the story is great. I can’t wait for the next issue. This arc has captured my attention without a hitch.

 

Rating: 9.5/10
