With such popularity and LvV's embracing of the character, it seemed weird that they axed her after one season -- their only excuse being they ran out of things to do with her.

Sadly, I think if you read between the lines, it meant "we've made her more powerful than Superman and we've painted ourselves into a corner" -- sadly, more evidence that TV is not ready for a superpowerful female, especially one more powerful than her male counterparts.


I think that this is only half-true. On one hand I agree that lots of people aren't willing to have a supergirl more powerful than her counterpart (especially when he is the titular character of the show). On the other I can see the problem with the storytelling, given how vastly more pawerful and capable Kara was there was no way to put a write a credible threat into the show. If the threat was powerful enough to kick Clark's ass, they could simply toss in Kara to fix it. If it was too powerful for Kara, none in the show could do jackshit about it.

lfan wrote: I still shake my head at the thoughts of a spinoff, which the iron was hot for that back then, but now its 4-5 years later and LvV, while still incredible for the role, is hardly a "girl". I still am curious at the long drawn-out, discovery-of-one's-self, "Smallville formula" to see if that will translate to Green Arrow and possibly "Amazon" later on...


As for a spinoff, I think that it was a major shame but, considering the overall quality of Smallville last seasons, maybe it's for the best that they didn't even tried.
I think that the discover formula should work pretty well on GA, his post-crisis origin was pretty much a trip to the Heart of Darkness. On WW, I have some doubts. Diana is suppposed to be immortal and overall quite old already (roughly 2570, if you go by the Lynda Carter version) so a discovery story might seem forced on the character.

Here is the final at 75% size. They got carried away at practice and floated a bit too high. Makes for a great show during the game but probably too distracting to everyone.

I like face and hair of the other girl (the not-supergirl). Is she modeled after an actress?

Favorite time of the year is coming! Spotted this for 2012. New to me. Meredith is the model. Some radio or TV affiliation or something.

Hope there are some Supergirl cheerleaders this past Sunday.

That would be so cool.
Also, this reminds me of a She Bane cosplay shoot I saw a few weeks ago:
http://alienbee.net/epic-cosplay-she-bane-vs-the-dark-knight/
Omg, that throat lift. Please also make sure to google "she bane", there are several other pics of the same woman around.
I know this is not an "actual" supergirlish theme, but damn it meets the requirements for me ;)

Really cheesy. Department store mannakins are more appealing than that.

I don't spend enough time ogling department store mannequins to judge one way or another so I'll refrain from commenting...

Part of the Velorian mythology is that they grow stronger every year they live, and they live nearly forever without seeming to age. If so, then this is probably how they look in their third century of life. Still cute and young-looking, but able to twist a MacPherson strut as if its made of rubber.

Speaking of immortals, here's one of our favorite demi-goddesses. Has anyone noticed that DC is developing the romantic angle between WW and Superman. Something that is so obvious that it should have been central to the mythos for ages, but I suppose they had to step carefully around the whole super-sex thing for a long time. Apparently no more.

Nor to forget how the new Huntress/PG book depicts how her costume tends to get blown off. They've really amped up Karen. Great series, especially the last issue.

Well, these sure beat that plastic doll!

As for the DC romance, it looks like fun. But in the AU there are enough Velorians to allow for a lot of romances. That's more fun!

Unfortunately, Kryptonians and Velorians (or models who convincingly look and dress like them) are really hard to come by. Plus its hard to convince them to hang around long. Pretty hard to decorate your place with them like you can with a mannequin.

We have to thank our various photographers and video producers to give us a little taste, albeit nobody human is going to accurately depict either a Krypt or a Vel. There are limits to the human form.

But with some good cosplay players and Photoshop, we can at least dream. Here's a couple of examples of great cosplay actors who do a great Supergirl (thanks to a bit of Photoshop):

Or maybe wearing just a bit of body paint. The original photo came out of Brazil, but I added Kate Upton's head. A franken... but one I like, given everything below the face is natural. (Hopefully body paint is close enough to clothing to avoid the NSFW label. Sports Illustrated thinks so.)

I have to disagree on this point. While it made sense for the pre-Crisis versions of the characters, where Superman was more Super than human. Being both pretty much gods on earth, they looked like a natural match. After Crisis the point was examined a couple of times, pretty much defining that there was too much cultural distance between them for a solid relationship, which made sense since they emphatized his human side over his super side.

I'm not sure how I feel about this new direction, it's interesting (and pretty funny that it was apparently the final nail in the coffin of the old universe), but it seem kind of forced.

Agree with your comments on post-Crisis but prior to the New 52 redo that started last year. But in the current context of the book. Anon, it seems they are developing the idea that they are both lonely and they see themselves as different from all others. They can only confided in each other.

Plus Kal doesn't have a relationship with Lois in the new book. Nor does Diana have anyone on Earth. So they kind of fall together, although clearly Kal/Clark is the one pushing things along.

The writers have clearly made the decision to develop his relationship with Diana and not with Lois. That's a MAJOR shift in the character, but it could work under the context of the new book.

Clark has taught Diana about disguises and they have enjoyed a dinner in plain view without anyone suspecting. (Also a dinner in full costumed view, which as you might expect, wasn't very private.) Also, he's taken her to the Kent farm and discussed how it influenced his growing up. One panel shows them lying beneath his cape in a field, obviously having a romantic moment. Their first time I presume. Choosing the Kent farm for that says a lot about where the writers are going.

After looking back through the various issues where this romance developed, it doesn't seem all that odd or forced to me. But we'll see where it goes. The writers at DC are anything but stable and consistent, so this could crash or take a sudden turn anywhere. But it does appear as if the writers have put some thought into it.
