[VIDEO] The House of El 9: Kara is Flawed…and That’s Okay
Welcome to The House of El, the monthly video series where I go beyond the Supergirl recap, delve a little into the DC Comics source material and other incarnations of the character, and hone in on a topic from recent episodes of CBS’ Supergirl that I find interesting, annoying, or that really sticks in my craw. Wherever my “craw” is.
In January’s House of El, I delve into the Supergirl episodes “Blood Bonds,” “Childish Things,” and the recent “Strange Visitor From Another Planet” in order to discuss some of Kara’s flaws and more questionable behavior. Join me as I talk about the stuff Kara’s done that fans aren’t terribly thrilled about, and how these flaws contribute toward making her a nuanced female character.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below! Let’s talk CBS’ Supergirl! And check back on the last Thursday in February for an all-new House of El!
