- Alternate Character Interpretation: Was Zor-El being cruel for quarantining an innocent person to the Phantom Zone? Or he was right when he told he couldn't put the safety of one citizen above the safety of all of them? Lar-On's transformation is dangerous, but he had committed no crime. However Zor-El tried to find a cure.
- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The fight with Emerald Empress in #8. Despite being hyped on the cover as the main conflict of the issue, the Empress' arrival comes out of nowhere and only lasts like four pages. In those four pages she destroys property and rants about how Supergirl destroyed her life. Supergirl has no idea what the Empress is talking about and after she disappears, the rest of the issue acts as though the fight never happened. Needless to say, fans of the Legion of Super-Heroes were incredibly pissed off at such a blatant Bait-and-Switch, hoping there'd be something more substantial alluding to the Legion's eventual return.
- Genius Bonus: Odic Force is an old but pretty obscure term.
- Older Than They Think: Some fans thought the Odic Force was a rip-off of The Mighty Thor's Odin Force.
YMMV / Supergirl (Rebirth)
