Review(s) of the Week: Supergirl #20 and Sonic Universe #52

I hopped on board Supergirl last issue because I'm just a sucker for a Supergirl/Power Girl team up or fight. Last issue ended with the two Kara's in Supergirl's underwater fortress and the computer realized there were two and decided Power Girl was a clone and went nuts trying to kill her. This issue is pretty much just the computer trying to kill Power Girl, then deciding Supergirl is the clone and trying to kill her, then the two finally manage to destroy Supergirl's fortress, which Supergirl is obviously a little bummed out about at the end of the issue. This was a pretty damn good read, the banter back and forth between the two Karas and the kryptonian computer was really enjoyable and even made me laugh in a few spots. Other than Action Comics #9 this is the first Super book I've enjoyed out of all the ones I've read in the New 52. Definitely worth checking out.
The crossover event of 2013 continues. I've you haven't already check out my reviews of parts one, two, three, and four. Not a lot really happens this issue. Our heroes have invaded the pocket dimension of the Skull Egg Zone to save Dr. Light and stop Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily. They battle Mega Man's double Copy Robot as well as some other villains and we take a few pages to showcase the trippy Skull Egg Zone, which is mostly just an excuse to throw in some nods to various Sonic and Mega Man games. We also see that Eggman and Wily's bromance is starting to end it's honeymoon stage and the two are arguing a bit more. And at the end we see the reveal of the eight Roboticized Masters.
It's a pretty cool splash page reveal but given that Mega Man was able to de-roboticize Tails just by copying his power like he does to other Robot Masters, the Roboticized Masters just don't seem like the threat that they should. All and all though this story line has been and continues to be an absolute blast. If you're not reading this you should be.
