Indeed, it's how someone might try to describe the state of Lost circa season 5. The point is simply that any mythos has plot points that sound fairly wacky when removed from their context.
Lost got so terrible, though.
Eh, it kind of collapsed in the final season and didn't live up to its potential, but I wouldn't go that far. A subject for another thread.

Supergirl has nice granny panties, I guess. And is that Louis Lane next to her?
At first glance, I thought that was Lex II in drag.
SG has the worst case of bedhead I have ever seen and LL is being played by Luthor in drag.

If I didn't know better I would come to the conclusion that Lex drugged SG, slept with her, and is now using her for some plot to be revealed in the following panels.

Man, it's hard to believe those giant, wavy hairdos were ever considered attractive on women.

In a way, Lex was using her, and not just for the sex. She conferred on Lex some legitimacy as a "good guy" -- he was trying to show the world that he wasn't like his "father," and if one of Metropolis' own heroes could see him as a good guy, then maybe the would would see he wasn't the villain that his "father" was.

I'm trying to remember how and why Supergirl and Lex II parted ways, but I'm drawing a complete blank.

Re: Did Supergirl get punched out of her skin?

It was in her miniseries from about a year later. Superman, the Kents, and one of Luthor's ex-wives all tried warning her that Luthor couldn't be trusted. At first she shut them all out. Eventually she wised up, used her shapeshifting powers to do some snooping, and discovered that Luthor was performing protomatter experiments with samples he'd taken from her. Dozens or hundreds of Supergirl duplicates. (Sheesh, talk about alternate costumes!)

After that, she declared all-out war on Luthor. "Hell hath no fury..."

Personally, I'd be pretty flattered if someone made a hundred clones of me.

Yeah, I liked Bogdanove's Superman, too. As you say it had some of Borings look and touch of the Shuster Studio. I beleive Boring was a member of that studio, so maybe thats the same thing.

Steve, are you sure that a Bogdanove panel?

I mean, yes, Lois has Bogdanovesque hair, but that's a Jurgens face on Supergirl.

Now that you mention it, it is a Dan Jurgen's panel. It's from Superman #77. Jurgens did layouts and Brett Breeding did finishes.
Oh dag!

Please tell me I got the other one right.

If you are referring to the panels posted with Steel and (I think) White Rabbit, then yes, that is Bogdanove.

Plus wasn't there a Jeph Loeb or Joe Kelly version of Supergirl as well, who was not blonde but had dark shorter hair? I think she showed up in a strange Batman/Superman story where all the different incarnations of Supergirl teamed up.
Cir-El. She was Superman's daughter from the future. Thing was that she really wasn't his daughter and was a creation of Brainiac as a way to control the world. She eventually was able to erase herself from existence to thwart Brainiac's plan.
Never heard of Cir-El. I like her look.

I have that issue. Now I can look up the scene.

It had to do with using her image without compensation. Supergirl was peeved that Luthor didn't cut her in.

Hey, it's the American way....
