Default Supergirl cancelled (again)

Why is it that whenever anyone even comes close to getting Supergirl "right" they change writers and junk everything that came before or simply cancel the book altogether?

100% agree. The current run wasn't perfect (too much DEO stuff, not enough Catco & Danvers), but it was the best I've seen since the dawn of nu52.

and....cancelled.

I wasn't happy with the DEO stuff (seemed to be a weirdly long story arc disguised as a status quo change), but liked the title overall.

Right. Not all of the stuff shoehorned in from the TV show worked and it's never made sense to me that she would use her real Kryptonian name as her secret identity name but they brought her a long way from the hard-to-like character introduced with the New 52.

It's a shame that they couldn't have merged her and Lana with their pre-Flashpoint iterations the same way they did with Lois and Clark. I really liked that relationship.

It appears that Bendis has plans for her in Man of Steel which presumably will influence whatever comes next.

I thought there was some talk that Supergirl and Supersons were being cancelled due to the Titans/Teen Titans realignment?

I'm personally worried about Bendis on Superman as it is (but that's a different thread I guess).

I did read something about that but it's hard to imagine that Supergirl wouldn't have her own book - at least while the TV series is still going strong.

The June solicits have the new rosters noted, and neither Supergirl or Superboy are on either team.

Hey, SG fans have nothing to complain about. Imagine being a Power Girl fan...

At least SG like Cyborg, is certain to get a new book, or perhaps two, soon, and has had at least a few actually decent stories.

Being fans of certain characters is tough.

Although I could see them trying to make their Supergirl book a team book if its true that SG's cancellation is tied to the JL/Titans stuff (and not just for letting Bendis do whatever to all the Supertitles).

I'm quite excited for this. Andreyko did some great work with Manhunter.
