Where will Supergirl be in the Convergence?
Convergence is DC Comics’ two-month crossover event that will take over their publishing schedule during April and May 2015 to accommodate the company’s move from New York to Burbank, California. The event will consist of a core 9-issue weekly series (starting with issue #0) and 40 separate two-issue miniseries each focusing on specific characters from the different universes and timelines that existed before The New 52. If that sounds terribly confusing, it is. Readers who aren’t deeply invested in DC Comics back history will probably want to skip the whole thing and wait until the regular schedule resumes in June.
The story’s premise is that Brainiac has pulled cities and characters from different points in time and from different realities, and trapped them in domed cities for a year. In Convergence we will see them dealing with having been trapped in a limbo for a year and having to confront characters from different realities.
The main storyline in the core CONVERGENCE series is still murky, but we do know who will be in the minis. Below are the four minis which will each feature a different version of Supergirl (or Power Girl).
