Supergirl has survived her ordeal in the Phantom Zone! Along with Batgirl, the Girl of Steel successfully emerged victorious over the Phantom King. But Cat Grant was waiting for Kara Danvers at Catco’s worldwide headquarters. And before Kara could react, Cat fired a high tech gun and struck her!
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Supergirl #12, we learn that things aren’t necessarily what they appear to be. Whoever fired that gun isn’t Cat Grant. But the effects of the blast are very real, and now Kara is facing one of the greatest challenges of her time as a heroine. To make matters worse, the Emerald Empress is back and she’s brought the Fatal Five with her! And guess who they want to take out?
This issue was written by Steve Orlando, with pencils by Robson Rocha, inks by Daniel Henriques, and colors by Michael Atiyeh. Rocha and Henriques provided the primary cover while Stanley “Artgerm” Lau drew the open order variant cover for this issue. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
“EMERALD ERADICATION” part one! Emerald Empress’ attack on Supergirl begins as her new Fatal Five assembles. Empress’ plan to destroy Supergirl’s present to preserve her future goes into full swing as Supergirl tries to hold her own—but soon even her abilities are out of her control.
Supergirl # 12 will be released this Wednesday, August 9, in comic stores everywhere.
