Supergirl: Human for a Day

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.”
Peter S. Beagle,

Oh Supergirl.

In a nutshell: great story, weak writing.

Imagine Kara’s adopted sister. The DEO is on lockdown and a huge alien is loose. He has psychic powers. He wants to release all the other aliens locked up. She handcuffs her boss, calls the alien that she has the codes and walks to meet him. “Either way, it stops now.”

Embarrassing. A very bad choice. She is risking the safety of the entire world. For what?

There was a nice moment when Supergirl, who has lost her powers confronts some bad guys. It would have been much better if she had done it as Kara and not in her costume. But, what can I say?

Martian Manhunter? I called it. Saw it a mile away.

Okay. We’ve seen the episode where she’s lost her powers. I guess amnesia is next.

The writers have to get better, even if it is with practice. Is anyone, anyone at all, telling them that they suck? I fear they are strutting in Hollywood and thinking that they are hot shit.

Here’s the deal. New artists always claim that they want to shake things up. They first have to prove that they can succeed in the status quo; at minimum, technique.
