Blessedly free of crossovers (for now, anyway), this collection has a new take on a familiar DC character. The art does well for the story.

Early on we are introduced to a character who can speak Kryptonian, her powers, she says, are to fully master any language having heard just a few words. This expands to alien languages, and even animal calls. Amazing character, I think, they found a way for Kara to have partners and friends without breaking her alien background, and her partner being a linguistic instead of another tank works great. But before the issue is over she is revealed to be the Silver Banshee, a mystical powered character whose powers have nothing to do with language, and is now another boring superhero with an unclear power set that runs in her family.

The rest of the book is basically background for Kara, a couple of unimpressive battles, and a tie in to a Superman/Supergirl story to come. All in all, not a great book, even though I keep wanting to like it because we need more female heroes that are well written. Alas, that is not the case here.

Kara Zor-El continues her quest to discover who and what she is and how she fits into the New 52 Universe.

One of the stronger new 52 books. Unlike most this doesn't include pointless crossovers.
