Supergirl - In Search of Lost Time

Posted: 24 Apr 2018 10:00 AM PDT

The common theme of loss of control plays out in both storylines of "In Search of Lost Time." M'yrnn's (Carl Lumbly) mental deterioration begins to effect those closest to him when the Martian's mental exercises begin pushing out intensive emotional waves that turn DEO coworkers against each other and Suprgirl (Melissa Benoist) against Mon-El (Chris Wood). Speaking of Mon-El, the episode gives us the first look at his Legion super-hero suit (not too shabby) along with some cape training with Kara (which, while effective, still looks pretty damn goofy). Although the psychic blast pushes Kara into letting out some aggression on her former boyfriend, it also appears to have finally cleared the air between the two, and just in time because it appears the third Kryptonian threat has finally decided to make an appearance.

The episode's B-story picks up with Lena (Katie McGrath) attempting to help Sam (Odette Annable) with her condition. Sam's refusal to believe that she's become a super-powered killing machine during her blackouts, prompts Lena to push her friend to her limits and arrange a recording of her super-murdery alter-ego in full temper tantrum. With Lena and Sam now both aware of who Reign is, the question becomes how long until that information is shared with Supergirl (and why do I get the feeling it will be ten-minutes too late)?

Set in the not-so-distant future the world is upside down. Well, not literally upside down. Just... up in the air. Gravity has stopped, and you are now only as safe as far as you tether or to the nearest solid object to grab onto.

For Willa Fowler the city is an adventure, taking a job as a delivery girl (and all kinds of risks to get the package there on time), but she craves more. Tied to the city where she has always lived, Willa wants to journey further out into the world (which the absence of gravity makes problematic). While such an undertaking is something her overprotective father understands, it isn't something he can condone. However, he does have a way to fix the world.

Writer Joe Henderson and artist Lee Garbett offer up an interesting premise for the new Image series. An untethered future overs unique challenges for our protagonist. In a single issue they set-up the world, give us some insight into how reckless (yet resourceful) Willa can be, and foreshadow the end goal. Can Willa's father really save the world? (And does he hold some responsibility for what happened?) Worth a look.
