It’s been a really hectic busy time in the days post NY Comic Con and much like the previous years, the immediate days and weeks that follow find us rallying the charge behind the superhero themed television shows. By my count, the DC Comics universe has six unique shows, and most of these are in a connected universe. Now we are up to the Season 3 Premiere of “Supergirl” which airs this evening. I’ve snagged the dramatic poster and offered up some reminder premise and casting down below before my editorial viewpoints.
Season 3 Recap: In the third season, Kara struggles with the loss of Mon-El after he is forced to leave Earth. When Mon-El returns, he reveals that he has time-traveled to the 31st century and founded the Legion, alongside marrying Imra Ardeen. J’onn discovers his father M’yrnn J’onzz is alive and Alex deals with her heartbreak after breaking up with Maggie. Kara and Alex’s new friend, Samantha Arias, is unknowingly another Kryptonian survivor, and begins a transformation from a loving single mother into the world-killing weapon known as Reign, who serves a coven headed by her biological mother Selena.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I had one or two issues with the previous season, I am largely behind “Supergirl” on The CW very much. I have always loved the character and come on now, who doesn’t just love Melissa Benoist in the role. She is the perfect Supergirl at the end of the day. I loved the introduction of the Legion and hope we see more of them and maybe even push Supergirl into the future like we found Superboy and that team doing in the comics. Clearly, when it comes to the television DC Universe, Supergirl has taken the place of Superboy. I also really loved their version of Superman and while he might overshadow his cousin a little bit in terms of overall power, the way they did him on the shows he appeared on was great. I’d love to find more use for the Man Of Steel for the TV universe. What about you readers? Are you still watching or debating giving the show a chance? Let me know down in the comments section below. I’ve also embedded the full series codes on Amazon.com for you down there so check them out.
