Episode 281 – Crisis Counselling 7 Beyond *choke* the Silent Night

The Subs take a look at Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, and go in deep on all the characters and events, as we say good by to a Legionnaire, and a hero that was always more than just Superman’s cousin.

  1. I will grudgingly accept Marv Wolfman’s statement that Crisis #7 was the best Supergirl story. He is also correct that Supergirl was never used particularly well in her own series. She was used well in various Legion stories, however, even in the Threeboot. Within Legion continuity, she had personality, even in early appearances. Forget the headband, just think of her in her Satan Girl togs…

  2. What I hated the most of all the efforts to bring supergirl back as an alien shapeshifter, or angel, or again as a Kryptonian, is that each rebirth only cheapened the sacrifice the original character made. Bring back flash, ok, but let supergirl just remain as a fallen hero.

    • Just heard your comments on mine (i.e. Episode 492). You’re right in that now, with the re-re-booted Supergirl in the books and Melissa Benoist on tv, those are awesome. I just disliked the alien/angel avatars. That said, there may be a crisis brewing on the CW, recall that hologram of the future newspaper in early Flash episodes that talked about the Flash disappearing amid red skies, that could well be a multi series finale Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover storyline. While I want these series to continue as long as the stories are good, the three longest lasting Star Trek series each clocked seven seasons and smallville got ten…. “all good things come to an end” and this sacrifices may be made again.
