It is the moment the Danvers have been waiting for. Jeremiah has come home. Amidst the joy there is trepidation. It seemed too easy to free him from the clutches of Cadmus. Alex can only see her wish come true. Her family reunited and whole. After a few conversations even Kara grows suspicious. A rift forms between the sisters. Lilian Luther is out of prison and everyone must watch their backs including Lena.
Please join Silver Vox and Green Butterfly as we look back on this emotionally charged pair of episodes. Jeremiah thought the decisions he was making would protect his daughters. With Lillian pulling the strings you have to be aware that every decision has consequences. This episode is one of my favorites because it shines a light on Kara. “Supergirl is what I can do, Kara is who I am.” I am glad to have Silver Vox, K Vox, and all of you to revisit these powerful moments with. In these episodes Kara was herself and she took a stand for what she believed in. Standing up for people and trying to help one another is a truly super thing to do.

Superman/Wonder Woman (2013-2016) Vol. 5: A Savage End dated December 27, 2016
WHO LIVES, WHO DIES …
A “power couple” no more, Superman and Wonder Woman need each other more than ever if they’re to defeat the immortal despot Vandal Savage. By stealing the Man of Steel’s powers, Savage has realized his master plan to draw back to Earth the comet that gave him his power eons ago. And this time, he’s confident it will grant him unspeakable might.
In his weakened state, Superman is a near-certain casualty at the hands of Savage and the super-powered genetic offspring that kill in his name. Diana appeals to the Olympian gods to heal him, knowing that they will first put his spiritual form through an emotionally grueling test to determine his worthiness. Should the God of War’s desperate gamble pay off, she and Superman must still contend with the immortal madman and his progeny. Will that epic battle move the estranged lovers to reaffirm their feelings for one another…or must one final tragedy bring them back into each other’s arms?
Critically acclaimed writer Peter J. Tomasi (SUPERMAN) and artists Doug Mahnke (JUSTICE LEAGUE), Cliff Richards (LOBO), Ed Benes (RED LANTERNS) and Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2: SOCIETY) chronicle what appear to be the final days of the world’s most powerful couple in SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN VOL. 5, collecting issues #25-29 and collected edition exclusive SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #30-31.
