Welcome back to Maid of Steel! This is a podcast dedicated to the CW TV series Supergirl and this week we’re jumping into the psychedelic action with Season 3 Episode 2 “Triggers”, featuring the DC and well-known Supergirl villain Psi, aka Gayle Marsh. mos-45-psiPsi was portrayed by Yael Grobglas, an actress whom I, for one, hope returns to reprise her villainy role at a later date. We have not nearly seen the extent of Psi’s character! Read more…

Supergirl vs Psi

What brought the Girl of Steel to her knees? Turn’s out Kara’s phobia is a deeply rooted one, going back to the time spent in her pod after Krypton exploded. Wow… all of that made perfect sense! I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I fully understood all of the events of this episode, and did so without cringing. It hasn’t happened in at least 24 episodes.

As Kara is still on her way out of the funk she’s been in for the last x months since Mon-El was literally shipped off planet, this episode really played the tough love card well. If Kara wants to act like a baby, if she wants to be immature, if she wants to keep things close to the vest, then the people around her are going to respond accordingly. Lena, as her new boss, will play the boss card; Alex, as her sister, will stare Winn down in order to get information about her sister. Characters acting in character is so uncharacteristic I almost didn’t know what to do with myself.

Martian Manhunter: Rings of Saturn

I’ve already suggested the first volume in the MM 1998 series, so since next week’s episode features a MM story, I thought I’d continue with the second volume. I have this entire series myself, and I recommend it HIGHLY. Here’s the summary:

The Martian Manhunter, one of the key heroes in The New 52, stars in this new title collecting his popular 1998 series. Featuring moody art by writer John Ostrander’s frequent collaborator, Tom Mandrake. After suffering colossal injuries at the hands of the evil Malefic, the Martian Manhunter has returned to Mars in an attempt to heal himself. But while he’s away, Saturnian ships arrive to reclaim Jemm, Son of Saturn, who is still recovering from being used as a pawn in “DAY OF JUDGMENT.”

Collects the 1998 MARTIAN MANHUNTER #10-17 and 1,000,000.
