I'm catching up on the last year of reading, and I notice Supergirl wearing what looks like a Black Lantern costume now. And she's being called "Dark Supergirl" now?

Can anyone tell me why?

Is this still Kara? Is she just wearing the new colors in mourning of New Krypton? Or is this a different Kara, somewhere?

Anyone know?

I can't keep up with all the crap coming out of the comics these days.

It took some digging, but from what I can tell ... way back in Supergirl #1 (Vol 5, 2005), Lex created a duplicate evil "Dark Supergirl" by exposing her to black kryptonite. They were later merged back together, though.

So I have no idea if this new Dark Supergirl is the evil Supergirl (she doesn't act evil in JLA #55) or if it's just Kara in a new suit. I don't know why she's in the suit now.

Black Kryptonite?! Jesus!! Why can't these d!ckheads just stick with the brilliance set forth by John Byrne. I don't want to see us going back to the garbage that was Red/Gold etc. Kryptonite. Comics just suck, across the board. So many bad stories. So much incompetence.
