Supergirl Comes In To Her Own In 2009

The zine NEWSarama's article by Chris Arrant "9 Comic Book Characters to Watch in 2009" was cited on MSNBC's website and it looks like Superman's cousin Supergirl is one of the ones on the rise for this year visibility-wise. She appears under her own title "Supergirl" (publisher:DC Comics) and has for several years. She is finally coming in to her own as one of the popular forces in the comic book industry. Here is the blurb on her from the original article: "Although she is the female counterpart to DC's signature superhero, she's never quite lived up to her birthright until now. Her ongoing series has finally (finally!) gotten its footing with writer Sterling Gates, and Supergirl is emerging as a key part of the larger DC Universe not as Superman's proverbial “kid sister” but as her own person. Far from a Superman in women's clothing, Supergirl has begun to emerge and reach her full potential — and her fans couldn't be happier".Who are the other nine? Dr.Strange, Wolverine, Nick Fury, Batman, Green Lantern, Green Goblin (Norman Osborn), Scarlet Witch, Power Girl, and honorable mentions Static, The Flash, Spider Woman, and Scott Pilgrim. Comic books are making a comeback!
