Episode #8 of the Kara Zor-El Podcast continues the battles of the epic Final Night Crisis event with a summary and review of Peter David’s Supergirl # 3. A town thrown into chaos and despair, and Earth’s mightiest heroes are all but gone, Supergirl steps up to confront Gorilla Grodd, and put a stop to his manipulative ways. Will Supergirl be successful, or be transformed into a ghastly creature herself?
In the show, I also take a look at the possibility of a live action Supergirl movie, and tackle the age old question, “Who should be Supergirl”? Should it be Laura Vandervoort, Summer Glau, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, or Adrianne Palicki? Vote at Karazor-el.com and have your voice heard.

Imagine death on a global scale by paralyzing cold and enfolding darkness. As panic spreads, people are driven to riot, murder, suicide, confess love, even reconcile with enemies. Since the dawn of the DC Universe, an unstoppable force has swept through the cosmos, feeding off the very stars, destroying worlds teeming with life and plunging them into the darkest night they’ve ever known.
NOW IT’S THE EARTH’S TURN.
THE FINAL NIGHT, a 4-issue weekly miniseries-that begins with the struggle of earth’s heroes to avert a global cataclysm, and follows the desperate extremes to which many of them are driven when they fail! It’s a story not merely of heroism but of ultimate heroism, as heroes and villains throughout the world rally, some fighting merely to delay the inevitable, others searching for a way to accomplish the impossible. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Parallax, Supergirl, Nightwing, Hitman, the Legion of Super-Heroes, Captain Marvel, Flash, Green Lantern, Sovereign Seven, Superboy, the Ray, Lex Luthor, the Phantom Stranger-these beings and others will find their powers and emotions tested throughout the four nail-biting issues in ways they never imagined, as some sacrifice everything to save their mother planet. Never before have the heroes of the DC Universe faces such a disaster. And unless they can achieve the impossible this may truly be… THE FINAL NIGHT.
