Beginning with next week's Supergirl #37, the "Who Is
Superwoman?" storyline will be exploring more about the mysterious hero
who showed up in the DCU wearing the familiar S-shaped symbol of the

week to get his thoughts on the chances of those characters being the
strange new addition to the Superman universe.
So what do you think? Who is behind that mask? Who is Superwoman?
