That would be out of left field for this show honestly, and he'd probably be too cool for it.

Just realized the president disguised as an alien is played by Lynda Carter, a.k.a. 70's Wonder Woman.

Huh... Between this and Deathstroke's actual return on Arrow, they're surprisingly upping the ante with some of these finales.

Nice plan, have Supergirl fight after being beaten near to death by Superman. (And that win doesn't count any more then Wonder Woman "beating" Superman.)

And didn't she break the deal with the fleet. So TEAM UP ON HER.

I was wondering when Superman's "damage control" crew would start arriving.
Fitting that KMC is the first place I see people trying to form excuses on, even on one of the most deserted boards in KMC's collection.

Gotta admit, insofar as I DON'T like many of the directions this show has taken in Season 2, I've got to give the writers credit for having the guts to give us the fight and fight result that they did. Pure slugfest, with Superman taking initiative and landing the first attacks, both cousins trading, Superman pointedly saying he was NOT physically weakened, that Kara fought him about as physically healthy as he ever is, trading blow for blow
... and dropped him before he dropped her.

It'll be interesting in the days and weeks to follow to see the kind of reception it gets. What is telling to me, though, is that this comes after the increased exposure Supergirl has been getting THANKS to her show. Superman gets a lot of nods simply because he is more popular than other characters. But, what happens when a group undertakes the task of investing in THEIR character?
When they don't follow "same ol', same old" formula?

Tonight the producers showed us a partial answer.

Feeling optimistic for the first time in a long time with the fact that this show has a Season 3 ...

As for the plan for repelling the Daxamites, you have to remember:

1) They were effectively out of time for trying any other real options.
2) Superman, besides having lost to Kara, was similarly beat up, AND had proved vulnerable to being controlled by Rhea before now.
3) Supergirl proved herself stronger than Mon-El AND her mother in fights before this point. At least without special weapons being involved.
4) Little if anything was spelled out about the challenge, save that the result would be honored by the losing side. Note too that the key to repelling the Daxamites still lay in beating Rhea; without her, Mon-El is ruler of Daxam and can simply order them back home. But they have to beat Rhea first.
5) The Daxamites numbered in the thousands, and were physically AND technologically superior to the National City crew. They can only be ignored so much while you're trying to beat their Queen and "teaming up" on her ...
They also at all times had the "hostage card" to play -- the Daxamites were only a fraction as deadly as they COULD have been ...

Have to credit them with jobbing out their icon. That took some balls.

Even Loeb wasn't allowed to go that far, probably because of editorial mandate.

This wasn't Superman's show. Of course he was gonna play 2nd fiddle to her. Still enjoyed the fight and finale though. The way they implemented Zod was kinda clever too.

It being her comic didn't let her beat Wonder Woman or Superman (And didn't Arrow beat Flash on his own show?) DC could have easily insisted their brand icon never, ever jobs, but apparently they allow more liberties to screen writers then they do comic book writers.

And yeah, Zod was neat. I liked him better then MoS Zod, he had that Superman II cheesiness factor.

Ah. Yeah, can't really defend that then, considering.

It's nice to hear someone admit this. The 2004 Loeb Supergirl actually had VERY strong reasons for Supergirl being physically stronger than her cousin, and not due to any psycholgical reservations on Superman's part, either. If you honestly examine all the story elements surrounding the 2 cousins during the time period you're talking about, the thought, "This doesn't follow from anything Loeb or ANYONE else has been writing. EVERYTHING points to her being, in fact, the stronger of the two ... " will continually nag.

The Masters of YouTube will inevitably break the link in this message, but, until they do:

(Clip summary: Superman assures Kara she fought him at full strength; Kara researches Daxam's "Trial by Combat" ceremonies and challenges Rhea to a one-on-one when Kara realizes her crew can't stop the ships from firing without it.)

A prepped Oliver managed to keep him occupied and restrain him long enough for the rest of team Flash to fix the mind whammy he was under. Oliver looked better, but it was hardly a clear cut win. Besides, it was confirmed during a later conversation between Oliver and Barry (might have been in the one crossover) that Flash won the rematch, with Oliver making the excuse of "no one saw it so it doesn't count", or something along those lines.

Hey, Ollie's right. smile

Loved that scene.

Anyways, not to play Surtur, but I just learned from a friend that twitter's been blasting Supergirl dating a slave owning misogonyst.

Didn't take much to find article after article talking out the "Mon-El problem".

You can't see it, but I'm face palming. Typing with one hand while holding a phone is not easy.

See, the thing is, I could care less if someone wants to hate on privilege or whatever.. But in the case of Mon-El, they very deliberately created a stereotype of everything sjw activism is against. Hating him for it is kind of missing the point...

Now, you can argue the show has done a bad job of writing a privileged class's road to redemption.. You can say he hasn't earned forgiveness or whatever. But they aren't arguing the legitimacy of his character growth. They're criticising him for having a background of being a slave owning aristocrat, and that Kara is too good for him.

Basically, it's an argument of "no quarter asked, none given". NOTHING Mon-El could do would make a slave owning misogonyst good enough (Seriously, many complaints say this directly, that his early displays killed the character for them, and it doesn't matter how he's rewritten.)
