Though J’onn J’onzz is one of DC Comics’ oldest and most powerful characters, there’s always been a way in which he’s existed ever-so-slightly out of the spotlight, save for a few solo series here and there and a number of appearances across various live action and animated television shows.

It should tell you something that we have run multiple versions of these reminder guides for the state of Warner Bros.’s DC Entertainment movie universe. But it isn’t every week that your whole understanding of the fragile state of a movie universe gets turned upside down by talk of one of its biggest stars exiting, is it?
Supergirl: Being Super -- a four-issue miniseries about a teenage Kara Danvers living in rural America with zero Kryptonian memories and confusing fluctuations in her powers -- concluded this week.

Injustice 2 brought a lot of cool DC fan service to video games last month, but one of its best additions was making Supergirl part of the story.
