Supergirl #2

Split between Suprgirl's battle with Cyborg-Superman and her discovery the creature was telling her the truth about his origins, Supergirl #2 continues building out Kara Danvers' new alter-ego by introducing her to Cat Grant for the first time. It's a bit strange that just as the Supergirl television series is having Cat leave Kara the new comic series should begin building that relationship. However, if the pair work half as good together on the printed page as they have done on Supergirl then it's worth the time spent here to begin building that relationship.

As for Kara's battle with her Frankensteinish father, it ends an anti-climactic manner. However, the comic does return to that plotline by the end of the issue as Kara's doubts and concerns about what the creature told her are confirmed. While a single version of Cyborg-Superman is destroyed, her father's mutated form is still out there awaiting his next attempt to reconnect with his daughter and complete his plan to restore Argo City (the Kryptonian home where he and Kara lived), no matter what the cost. Worth a look.
