I've never been a big Superman fan, he was overpowered and way to emo. Unfortunately I found Kara to be just the teen female version of Superman. Which made me really disappointed as I was hoping for a strong, relatable female superhero. I got that she was homesick and missing her family, friends, etc. but it didn't feel like she was even trying to give Earth a chance. Her new parents try hard to give her what she needs, yet at every turn she shuts them down. They even support her when her cyborg father shows up and wants her to come home.
The story was good, the artwork wonderful but Kara as a character was just to angst ridden and mopy. The entire book made me remember why I don't like the Supers.
