Supergirl Season 2 hasn’t lacked for notable DC villains, between Parasite, Roulette and more, but 2017 could prove even more charged. Multiple favorites from the series and Superman’s rogues gallery are signing up for 2017 returns, including Livewire, Metallo and more.

The end of the year is always a time for reflection, and we're taking this opportunity to look back at the long and weird history of superhero comics by picking our favorite heroes from each decade. Our panelists must put together fantasy teams drawing from the last 80+ years of superhero comics, using heroes from any publisher.
2016 is almost offer, but there's still one comic of this year that we're really excited about, coming in right under the wire. Supergirl: Being Super #1 is the first issue of a four-part out-of-continuity mini-series that explores Supergirl's history. It's basically a teen drama starring Kara Danvers, written by award-winning This One Summer writer Mariko Tamaki, with art by Joëlle Jones.
With the book coming out this week, ComicsAlliance sat down with Tamaki and Jones to talk about what makes Supergirl different from other people, what makes this version different from other Supergirls, and why giving Supergirl a queer best friend was so important.
Check out the best screen adaptations based on a comic book in 2016, including our critics’ picks and the comics you voted the runner up and winner in this category! This is the very best of 2016!
Just when you thought The CW would take a breather from its four-night superheroics, in swoops our first look at Supergirl’s premiere in 2017. Our first trailer sees not only the return of Dichen Lachman’s Roulette, but also a red sun, and a first look at Kevin Smith’s Supergirl directorial debut.
The moment Supergirl confirmed that Season 2 would move to The CW, Vancouver production and all, fans knew that a star of Calista Flockhart’s pedigree wasn’t likely to travel along with it. So it was, that Cat Grant departed Season 2 after only a few episodes, but are there at least plans to check in on Kara’s mentor and former boss before Season 2 is out?
Now that The CW’s four-way “Invasion!” crossover is behind us, Flash and Supergirl fans have the two-part musical crossover to look forward to in 2017. Some wild rumors early on suggested Joss Whedon might direct the crossover with Neil Patrick Harris reprising a famous role, but the Unfortunate Events star doesn’t seem to know much of anything about it.
What may go down as one of the worst years in recent memory is slowly crawling to a close, and while we wish it good riddance and hope against hope that 2017 will be an improvement, there is some small solace in looking back over the year that's passed and figuring out what stuff from it was the best. That's right, it's "Best of..." list time, and today we're taking a look at the Best DC Covers of 2016.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Team Rocket, Jay Garrick, Katana, Korra, and more.
Q: What is the definitive Christmas comic? — @Koltreg
A: "Definitive" is a pretty tricky requirement to meet. You have to find a comic that's not just definitively Christmas, with all that goes along with it, it has to be definitively comics, too --- and if you think it's difficult for people to agree on what Christmas is all about, just wait'll you try getting them to pin down one single issue that defines comic books as a medium. At least religion has centuries of scholarship; comics just has loudmouths writing columns about them on the Internet.
That said, I do think I've found one that's as close as we're going to get: 1989's Christmas With The Super-Heroes #2.
