Exclusive Supergirl #9 preview: Kara & Batgirl are Phantom Zone bound

When Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl of Burnside, heads to National City for an energy conference, there isn't an automatic bond over capes and heroics between her and Supergirl. Instead, in Supergirl #9, Kara and Babs seem slightly prickly with one another -- but that tension will have to wait, because a bigger threat is one the way.

In part one of the "Escape from the Phantom Zone," our heroes get sucked into the zone, and have to face off against the Phantom King. But that's not all, since Emerald Empress is building a deadly team, and that can't be good news for Kara.

Check out the meeting of the supers in an exclusive Syfy Wire preview of DC Comics' Supergirl #9 below. And if you dig the tease, pick up the issue -- written by Steve Orlando, with art and cover by Brian Ching, and variant cover by Bengal -- when it drops this Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
