Stop me if you have heard this one before... A Supergirl walks into a bar... Just as the title suggests this issue continues Kara's search for answers to the claims Rogol Zaar made that he is the being responsible for the destruction of Krypton. Ambush Bug is getting booed off the stage when people notice the Kryptonian crest poking out from under Kara's cloak. When Kara asks if anyone knows anything about a Rogol Zaar they try and brush it off as if they have no clue. No one steps forward, so Kara says, "Tell me or I will make you tell me, either way works for me." Gandelo, is informed that Kara has been located and says he has an "Independent contractor at the ready" to deal with her. After some harsh words at the bar, a brawl breaks out. Krypto joins in the fray, but with Kara not being around Earth's yellow sun to recharge her powers she is soon overtaken by the crowd of patrons. A large creature raises his weapon and is about to put Kara down for good when Kara reveals the axe of Rogol Zaar and uses it defend herself. Immediately the crowd backs away from her and some even praise her as the "The Axe Queen". A creature is about to tell Kara what he knows when he is shot down by another. She finds another crystal like the one that was given to her last issue, and picks up a "traveling companion" named Z'ndr Kol who convinces her to take him off planet. As the ship travels through space, Kara gets really ill as they find themselves smack dab in the middle where Krypton once was.

Thrown into a prison cell with other various aliens, it is here she decides to use her little boost of super strength to free all the prisoners and attempt an escape.

Aboard the Citadel Grand Warship, Kara is severely weakened after the poisoning.

While the Girl of Steel fights on Z'ndr Kol tends to a weakened Krypto and listens to the angry musings of his adoptive mother. As Hokum watches in amusement, Kara resorts to a plasma rifle to battle the shape shifting Splyce. The creature has realized her Tamaranean powers could reenergize Supergirl and Hokum wonders if he can create an even stronger creature by splicing in Kryptonian DNA to his creature. The Omega Men secure an escape craft and load on survivors ready to escape into the Vega system but Kara watches in horror as Splyce murders a child trying to get away. Despite her tearful anger Kara spares the life of her foe and escapes with the Omega Men. Z'ndr meanwhile has defied his mother for the last time.

Krypto, now fully healed, reawakens and rescues Z'ndr and they also escape in a craft. Kara watches their ship disappear while she tends to the survivors. She also notices a small scar on the neck of some of the Omega Men's friends but by the time she realizes the connection it's too late.

Writer: Marc Andreyko
Penciller: Eduardo Pansica
Inker: Julio Ferreira
As the Omega Men and Supergirl battle the genetic clones. Kara tries to prevent them reaching the outpost using the axe she stole from Rogol Zaar despite knowing it amplifies rage. Ryand'r's solar power helps but the battle is a dangerous one. Even trying to reach out to her sisters doesn't seem to overcome their rage. Z'ndr and Krypto are soaring through space in the escape craft looking for signs of Kara and it's only by pure luck that Krypto notices a very weak signal on the video screen and the duo set a course to rejoin their friend. Back on the Omega Men's ship Kara asks Ryan'dr for a power boost and he obliges in his own unique way and the backlash causes their unstable genetics to collapse in literal piles of goo. Kara swears revenge and takes the fight directly to Hokum. Kara snatches Appa's ring as Hokum is teleported away to safety and investigated the ship making a horrific discovery. Kalista tells Kara that their friends that Hokum experimented on have survived but will remain in stasis until they can be cured. Ryand'r also gives Supergirl a parting gift - her superpowers at maximum strength just in time for Z'ndr and Krypto to reunite with them. Hokum finds himself at the mercy of Lord Gandelo who shows no mercy to the deranged scientist. Gandelo teleports Hokum into deep space and watches him suffocate. Gandelo holds a holo-conference with the Rannians and Thanagarians revealing that Supergirl knows the truth about The Circle. They insist Rogol Zaar has gone rogue but they all risk exposure if Supergirl reveals what she has seen. Gandelo sends an order to Rogol Zaar's planet, R'Venna, with an order to kill Kara Zor-El and the entire planet swears to continue Zaar's work.

Appa tells Kara to take the crystals to Oa to end The Circle for good. As Zaar's followers arrive on Tavaar they begin attacking the heroes. They leave destruction in their wake until Kara reveals her possession of the axe.
