Supergirl #28

Finding himself over-matched, crappy New 52 pseudo-Lobo first tries to beat Supergirl and when that fails he tries his best to reason with the extremely pissed-off young woman whose tired of being taken advantage of. The only thing that saves the supremely-awful redesigned character from the ignoble death he surely deserves is Kara's all-out rage that sets up the next several issues of the title and its tie-in with Red Lanterns.

Putting aside the shittiness that is this version of Lobo, a constant complaint I've had with Kara is her propensity to whine (which comes off even pathetic from someone with Superman's power set). Apparently that's not going to be an issue going forward.

Although I'm against throwing a ring on an already super-powered character like Supergirl, I have hopes the experience might give her a bit more perspective once she inevitably returns to normal (and gives her a little bit of Power Girl's spunk, which this version of Kara is sorely lacking). And, hey, maybe we'll get a cameo from Dex-Starr? Worth a look.
