So, I just started watching the show Supergirl. I’m barely finishing episode 1 of the first season, but I already love it so much.
Melissa Benoist is WONDERFUL!!!! She’s beautiful and I think she’s so perfect for the role of Supergirl.
I love the aspects of feminism and girl power. Supergirl is such a unique character. She’s nerdy and awkward and shy. She’s a character that a lot of people can relate to, and it’s funny to see the “human side” of a superhero. It also seems as if they aren’t over-sexualizing her, which is one of my pet peeves when it comes to females in comics.
I definitely recommend this show to anyone who loves superheros and more importantly, female superheros.
I hope that the success that this show has received inspires more shows for other female comic characters. For example, maybe Gotham City Sirens or Jean Grey. Storm and She-Hulk!!! Those would be amazing!! Holy shit, Storm especially, would be revolutionary, because she is a woman of color, and I think that Black Panther will help bring more comic characters of color into the light.
