When I mention Supergirl, the general public has very little context, and comic book geeks roll their eyes at thoughts of either a cheesy movie, the comic equivalent to twighlight, or remember somewhat fondly a Justice Leauge unlimited “coming of age” episode. Unfortunately, due to the usual required 10 episode warm up, the new TV show has not garnered a lot of support.
I think this is cultural villainy. Even before having a daughter, I have been a big supporter of anything in media that gets female empowerment right. And while this show began with a cheesy tone, it is growing into a real story developed extremely dynamic characters.
I implore you to watch this show if you have not, but for those fans out there, Constant Collectible will be attending a panel featuring the dynamic duo of the actresses that play Kara (Supergirl) and her sister Alex Danvers (DEO Agent).
