Sterling Gates on “Supergirl” 35 at Newsarama

by Matthew Price Published: November 24, 2008

OU graduate Sterling Gates, now the writer of “Supergirl,” talks to Newsarama about issue No. 35, in which Gates, with artist Jamal Igle, made sense of some of Supergirl’s tangled continuity.

Gates tells Newsarama: “She’s had a couple different versions of her origin, and we wanted to make sense of that not only to the readers, but also to ourselves. This version of Supergirl — Kara Zor-El — was reintroduced so we could get back to the roots of the character, making her origins understandable and streamlined. As time went on, however, I felt like the streamlining got a little rocky. Now, I want to definitively state and be able to point to an issue and say, ‘This is it. This is her true origin.’ That’s what this issue represents.”
