    So Star joins the Black Order? Or ends up leading them...

    Did anybody here read Star #2?
    I thought it was great, although with no transition from the previous issue I think it's pretty clear that not everything is what it seems.
    The flashbacks will probably give us some more insight into why Riply went so murderous so fast.
    I was really surprised by the appearance of spoilers:
    the Black Order
    end of spoilers. That's a neat addition to the story.

    Not a bad issue. I’ll keep reading till it ends, but I can’t quite wrap my head around it.
    I think answers are coming as to why she just went bad.

    I've literally not read any of the current context that introduced Star in the first place, but so far the story is just incredibly compelling to me, as a reader going in blind. At most, I'm a big fan of the Black Order, and finally, here's a writer giving them really good scenes and dialogue, sometimes actually subtle. The focus feels a bit strange to me, in that so far I'm enjoying the times we see the other characters besides Star, and seeing them react to the situation or having much more extended dialogue than I expected, but Star remains an enigma to me.

    I get she's still 'finding herself', but at this point she still seems to be just 'reacting' while the other characters are going deeper in figuring out Star's place in the universe and the repercussions. It makes sense in context of the story, but I'm just not feeling all that much agency from Ripley herself.

    Does Star actually possess the Reality Stone, or is she merely linked to its power indirectly? I'm curious to know the extent of her abilities to warp reality. Does she truly have the power to be almost anything that she wanted, and if so, why has she made the choices that she's made so far?

    That seems somewhat appropriate since the lack of agency is a key element to Star's origin. She went insane and got on her revenge/power kick as a reaction to being an innocent civilian caught up in the struggles of super humans. Then she got her powers as the result of experimentation by another super villain (granted, she consent to that), and then got her power upgrade by a cosmic object merging with her without her knowledge.

    The majority of her career as a villain thus far has mainly been her reacting to everything that happens around or to her. Perhaps by the end of the mini she'll have started to get a firmer handle on who she is and what she truly wants.

And Karen Starr (note that surname!) usually wears her hair shorter than Kara Danvers (whose name is very similar to Carol's - though of course, originally the first and last names were separated, as Kara Zor-El's civilian name used to be LINDA Danvers).
    Iím liking her on first impression. Her design reminds me of the 1980s Ms. Marvel design, which I liked.
