- What Could Have Been: During his run Tony Bedard started several interesting subplots up, but he had not the chance to develop them. He revealed his plans in an interview, though:Anj: You sowed the seeds of future plotlines which may never come to fruition. Can you tell us what you were planning with Blaze? Siobhan? Michael? Shay Veritas?
TONY: I was going to have Blaze create a trio of henchgirls called the Furies. Remember Siobhans roommate and her two friends? They were all orphaned in superhero battles and had sworn themselves to finding a way to make super-people pay. They were going to beat Supergirl and take her back to Blazes home dimension. Hilarity would ensue. I wanted to get Siobhan in there more, to make her and Kara a team. I had one issue where the newly Red Lanterned Kara fights Silver Banshee, and I contrasted their fight with flashbacks of Kara and Siobhan just having fun roommate moments. That remains one of my favorite things from the run: just letting her have a friend. Michael returns in my final issue, and well see if they do anything with him after that. If not, it was enough that Kara met a guy who had every reason to hate life and yet retained a positive outlook. He was in many ways a good role model for her, and he didnt want to trick or use her, which is nice for a change. And Shay I wanted to keep playing sort of mysterious. Is she really a friend to Supergirl, or does she view her as another science project? Shays still a bit of a cypher to me, which is okay if shes played for mystery. But I liked doing scenes of her staff at the Block talking about what its like being stuck there, having to wear her face, alternating between admiration and resentment. It gave the whole Block set-up a little complexity.
