Last nights Flash episode showed me the problem with Supergirl...


On her own TV series she is almost second string and shown as generally incompetent and always being one upped. She's almost NEVER shown as a true powerhouse or threat.

Everytime she has a chance, they throw in Martian Manhunter, or Superman, or her sister, or Mon El.

Also a bunch of civilians (Felicity, Cisco, Killer frost) are more competent in dealing with powered threats than the entire DEO.

Take these two scenes from Flash last night:

These both showed Supergirl as THE threat. A real, bonafide powerhouse who was as fast as Barry, had more stamina and far more power.

Felicity even says "What is doing? Supergirl's invincible!" which to be honest is how many should think of her in her own show. but instead every week, rather its powered people or even thugs with guns, she's always getting beat by things which seem... like the Flash or Arrow squad could handle.

not only that, judging by the first GIF she seems to be faster than Barry! She jumps in front of him and almost frys his ass.

THAT is how Supergirl should be portrayed.

Holy !@#$! I need to watch that again lol! That looks awesome!

Also it shows me another thing though, when he hurled the lightning it had NO real effect on her, it only pissed her off. When she was slamming through the building chasing Flash she showed no real damage. but in her own show she gets thrown into a car and is winded.

I agree Gal, they don't really show "Supergirl" as being very Super.

Found the scene I was referencing. you mean like stuff like this lightning scene. Yeah his lightning had !@#$ all effect on her. when on her own show she'd probably be unconscious or something.

really shows you how powerful she should be.

i love the lightning scene lol. Atom and Firestorm getting blasted back and Kara just tanks it like "!@#$ your !@#$ Barry! I'm Supergirl !@#$!"

If I played a krypto in rp that's probably how i'd be half the time lol. as most things can't hurt them and they portrayed it perfectly in Flash.

btw. those scenes will be tough for Justice League to top. especially the race/duel with Supergirl. Stunning !@#$.

and LOL Misaka that's how I play Galatea. she is a "kryptonian" so yeah things like guns and basic stuff don't work on her. But clever things do. It's fun and I did love seeing her basic "overpowered ness" displayed on screen.

It was pretty crazy how magical speedforce lightning had no effect on her and she just was like "uh nope! *Laser eyes!*"

All in all I enjoyed the episode, other than mopey Cisco. Seriously, he and Diggle's "you mean.. you erased my daughter?!" get out of here... you didn't even know you had a daughter, and you have a son now so wtf.

Re: Last nights Flash episode showed me the problem with Supergirl...


That was the best Flash/Supergirl show I ever saw. I loved how Kara beat all of them, every single one of them. Even Arrow was hurting, in the practice. Kara was like "Again?"

Sadly, in RP, it cannot be like that. Everyone RPs someone that can match, if not top, Kryptonian power. Some will say no, but most will agree I am right. It may not be in power level or strength, but is some way... they will top it. Take it from someone that has RPed Kryptonians for years. It is not all that simple to ignore attacks. If you do, you don't get much RP.

The show though, OMG. My thoughts going into her "Oh great, Kara will be mind [sign in to see URL] hum." But the way the did it made it fun to watch. The fact they beat it in one episode, made it more fun. Now I know she will not be cannon fodder for the rest of the shows. She and Flash will have to save EVERYONE. That is going to be epic.

Seeing Sara fighting Ollie was really fun to see too. I loved how Arrow could handle all of them at the same time. He is shown to be a real power house himself. But how Diggle was like "Oh crap... a real alien and space ships and..." that was fun to watch too.


I hope that this Cross Over saved Supergirl the series, cause I feel like it needed this to boost fanfare. I know I love Supergirl, but I was "ho hum" about this series this year. This reawakened my joy and.. yes... my... SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

well to me Sg it showed me what Supergirl could be on screen. She should have no problem handling that stupid cyborg. She should melt his skull or stomp his face with ease.

I liked really though just how POWERFUL she felt. I mean... they were like !@#$, we can't stop her, at all.

and that fight was great. Bar none the best DC has put on screen so far.

Re: Last nights Flash episode showed me the problem with Supergirl...


I haven't seen this weeks SG, and I totally missed that episode of The Flash. But judging off of this, I'm hoping that the ratings and the reviews reflect HEAVILY on SG. For real, I'm so tired of this whole "The Supergirl's Friends show" garbage. It makes me not want to watch it everytime I do watch it, and I hate that.

In retort to how "Kryptonian's" should be played. When can I actually start playing Teej and Dia that way? because, dayum. That was AWESOME LOOKING! I mean cripes, for so long me and Peej would get lynched for showing that sort of "Super"...

lol not by me hun. you know I love both of ya and I have told both you and SG i think you guys go too easy sometimes in RPs. no way a guy with a gun (railgun or otherwise) could stand up to Supergirl or Thundergirl.

There is a reason Hero Watch has not outright attacked Powergirl and the one member who did was in the hospital for weeks. I told everyone who RPs a member of Hero Watch to treat kryptonians and any really powerful being like a genuine threat. Misaka did and she rped it perfectly. Powergirl wasn't intending on breaking her arms and legs lol but she is just so powerful, even her flyign by, the downdraft could knock someone out.

so ya I say play em that way!
