Powergirl waits for Superman to come and chat to her perched on top of the Daily Planet building, she has second thoughts about being a super hero, being under the shadow of others more powerful than her. It isn't enough that she's been dreaming up moments when she saves people from danger, and when Superman himself comes he has to advise her on what she should do - the only thing she can do is take the advice or go her own way.
Peace is disturbed by the Omacs, humans transformed by nanobyte technology into dangerous living weapons. In this story, it is up to Green Arrow, Supergirl and Green Lantern, among others, to take head them on in order to take them down.
Everyone has their own problems, even when the Omacs are gone, Wonderwoman has her problems to deal with, Aquaman has an ill wife to go back to and Daina Troy needs Red Tornado and Supergirl to help out with a major crisis on earth they are sure to work it out. One year later after the conflict, Powergirl and Supergirl are running Candor against a certain power crazed super hero everyone knows.
Supergirl: Candor is a well-written and pro-illustrated novel. The penciller, inkers and colourists all do a great job of fleshing out the characters, and that can be meant in more ways than one. For a DC publication this is more raunchy than most, and thought tastefully enough drawn, readers will find it titillating as some of the poses leave little to the imagination.
As an added bonus there are several cover pictures for the comics done by various artists; David Acuna, Ian Churchill, and Joe Bentley.
