Superman in Who’s Who: 90′s Edition continues today with the third part of a multi-part look at the heroes that gave Superman a hand in his never ending battle during the early part of the decade.

Again, I know I posted these particular entries a year or so ago, but it would feel weird to not re-post them during the course of this series.

You would think that I would save Supergirl for last but in all honesty while I love this iteration of Supergirl and while I think she is extremely important to Superman’s world starting with Panic in the Sky and going forward she is not my all-time favorite.

Which supporting hero is my all-time favorite?

Next time: My all-time favorite supporting hero from the Post Crisis era.

More to follow…

    Thanks for posting these, Michael. I’ve really been enjoying them. This was my favorite Supergirl, too, although I do have a soft spot for Kara Zor-El in her head band costume from right before “Crisis.”

    I remember when the Supergirl movie came out I thought despite everything wrong with the movie it would be so cool if Helen Slaters costume was the one they used in the comics. I got my wish BUT it was in the form of a shapeshifting blob from a pocket dimension who was then a earthbound angel or …something, what?

    Anyways, looking back on the beginnings of Matrix I can’t help but think that it would have been cooler to keep Matrix around as the new Bizzaro rather than the new Supergirl and instead found another way to bring Supergirl in with the current version of the Superman books.

    I totally get wanting to keep Superman’s “Last Son” status intact but I think the animated series came up with a bit more of an elegant solution, one that I wish the comics would have used rather than just copping her costume for Linda Danvers.

    I like Kara Zor-El alot better, the original one was rebooted in 2004
