SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter (“Arrow”)

I’m never gonna watch this but you know, this is the annoying thing that I’ve noticed in a lot of movies and/or TV shows based on comics nowadays. Why do they always have to change the race of one character? Seriously, when the heck was Jimmy Olsen ever a buff, bald, black dude? Another prevalent trope is that the black dude is always put in the position of power, which I find okay at first, but now, that cr*p is just annoying.
I just think it’s stupid to change a character’s race for the sake of “balance”. We all know who Jimmy Olsen is. An awkwardly shy red head who takes pictures for the Daily Planet. He’s pretty much the Peter Parker of DC minus the Superhero alter-ego. There was never a good reason to change his race. He’s still the same red head in New 52. If they were trying to appeal to the black demographic, then I’m sure as hell that the black people who are fans of Superman would not like what these guys did to Jimmy Olsen.
Marvel is movng into the right direction: actors, story, drama, fun, action, cgi, marketing: peak performance And DC?? Drifting here & there, not able to build a consistent universe (as Marvel has been doing successfully for the past 5-10 years). So now, DC got stuck somewhere between Ally McBeal, Sex and the City & the Devil Wears Prada This isn’t even funny any more, it’s just plain horrible, stupid & embarrassing
It’s not racism, it’s nerd-raging. We don’t hate black people. we only hate the fact that they replaced little ginger Jimmy Olsen by some buffed black bald dude. We would have raged the same way if any other leading or supporting black characters were replaced by some white dudes.
It seems like they are constantly changing skin colour for a lot of comic book characters. Which is ok (I’m no racist), but I can only imagine that by year 2040 superman will be asian and batman indian.
They should make a black supergirl, but instead of flying, she nae nae’s everywhere protecting thugs and drug lords from the police.
Is this a movie or a TV series, I am confused
The Above Are Comments From Social Media And Not necessary the thoughts of WHISNews21
In his book ‘Swim With the Sharks’, leadership expert Harvey Mackay writes about Philip Pillsbury of the famous Pillsbury milling family: ‘The tips of three of his fingers were missing…the unmistakable mark of a journeyman grain miller, albeit a somewhat less-than-dexterous one. Philip Pillsbury had an international reputation as a connoisseur of fine foods…but to the troops his reputation as a man willing to do a hard, dirty job was the one that mattered…And you can be sure everyone was aware of it.’ Following in the footsteps of Jesus calls for being service-oriented, not self-absorbed. Often the reason we don’t volunteer is because we think we can’t do it as well as somebody else. We’ve made the mistake of making excellence an idol by buying into the philosophy, ‘If I can’t do it right, I won’t do it at all’. The fact is, less-than-perfect service is better than the best of intentions. If you’re not willing to do it imperfectly in the beginning, you’ll never get out of the starting gate. Almost everything we do is done poorly at first. That’s how we learn. God’s plan has always been to involve as many folks as possible, not have everything run by a few experts. The best of people make mistakes; it’s how you gain knowledge and develop character. The Bible says, ‘If you think you are too important to help…you are only fooling yourself.’ Sometimes you’re called to serve upward to those in authority; other times you’re called to serve downward to those in need. Either way, you’re serving God only when you’re willing to do what’s required.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me involve others in serving others so that they too can understand Your heart and nature.
