Should ‘Supergirl’ Seek Superman’s Assistance with the Worldkillers?

Much of Supergirl has been about establishing Kara Danvers as a hero in her own right, and as a hero the people of National City can count on.

Before even introducing Superman as a recognizable character, we saw Kara fight to prove she didn’t need her cousin to come save the day for her. It’s safe to say Kara’s proven to everyone she’s just as capable, if not more so, than Superman. So would it be a mistake to bring in Superman to be at Kara’s side during the Worldkiller fight?

Why ‘Supergirl’ Needs to Revisit Lucy Lane

Lucy Lane
After Supergirl moved from CBS to The CW, Lucy Lane went from fully fledged co-leader of the DEO to nonexistent, and her name hasn’t really been mentioned since. Where did she go?

Supergirl unexpectedly dropped Lucy Lane from their lineup of characters after the production move to Vancouver—which probably is due to Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s family being in Los Angeles and reluctance to leave, just like Calista Flockhart—but, really, no explanation for why Lucy suddenly wasn’t helping J’onn run the DEO? Several characters made such an enormous deal about needing a human leader to keep an eye on the alien leader, yet that was inexplicably dropped, too? It’s time to revisit Lucy Lane.
