I’m back again to talk about a new show that’s supposed to debut in 2016. Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist in the title role. Having seen the promo, I’m not so sure if this is really a good move. The origin story essentially writes Superman out of it by basically giving her his story. I’m not a fan of all of the television hero shows of late. Smallville and all the rest have this weird teen angst in them that makes them unwatchable in my eyes. They are really popular, but how many of those fans actually took the time to read a comic book? Do they really know the stories that made these characters so famous? Or are they learning about the hero through the shows?
I’ve watched this clip and I’m not terribly impressed with what I’ve seen. It really doesn’t look all that important. Supergirl was always a secondary character. Superman was like her mentor and her showed her the ways of being a hero. If she’s doing all on her own, does that make the character irrelevant? Who will the villains be? Will it just be Superman in a skirt? The promo shows some special effects that seem to be there just to showcase that they’re there.
Give it a look and tell me what you think. Please leave any comments or questions below.
Until next time!
