Angela covers the Eclipso crisis.

Months later, in Metropolis during the Eclipso crisis, Superman's extended family takes down an Eclipso atop a building while Angela covers the action on a news chopper. She is apparently arguing with her producer over whether or not to comment on the fact that Supergirl's outfit doesn't include a skirt, saying that it's not a big deal she wears pants and that "you don't fly in a skirt". The chopper is caught in the crossfire, and Supergirl rescues both Angela and the pilot. Supergirl also makes a point to thank Angela for her "solidarity" on the outfit issue, in which Angela replies by saying "it's just makes sense".
