Part 2 of my 3-part Supergirl article series. This article is gonna be around the top 5 heroes I would like to see at some time in the series.
1) There may or may not be profanity within this article. You have been warned.
2) I am making 3 articles surrounding the Supergirl TV series. This is #2; the top 5 heroes.
3) I am writing these 3 articles with 'Supergirl' being on The CW. Assuming it will be on The CW due to the fact of Greg Berlanti's DC Comics related shows are all on The CW.
4) I am rating these from 5 to 1 based on 2 things, my want & likelihood of it happening (sort of).
5) Some choices will not start off as heroes but will become heroes later on in their story arcs (that's if I was running the series).
Let's start with #5 shall we? Before I show you, I will like to say I have 2 picks for the #5 slot. The 1st one will be a little bit more of a just want compared to the 2nd one.
A female Bat-Family member. The likelihood of any Bat popping up on any DC series besides 'Gotham' is so unlikely but with all the Batman references with in 'Arrow' & the 'The Flash' pilot, it's not impossible. I'm aiming more for either Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle or Kate Kane/Batwoman. Now, if you have read some of my other Top 5 Heroes articles, you might know that I have a fan b-1er for Kate Kane as a character & how I think she can be DC's key to be different from Marvel. We have yet to see a gay Marvel character brought to the screen & very little glimpse of seeing one in the near future. DC on the other hand, has enough opportunities to bring some their beloved characters, gay & straight alike, to the screen, either big or small. So, if WB/DC really want to be different from Marvel, here is their opportunity.
And the other #5 has some history with Supergirl;
Legion of Super-Heroes. I know that there is a rumor for a Legion movie coming out of Warner Bros. greasy hands. I would love a Legion movie, but at the same time, if the rumor is true, that WB/DC "are" doing it because of Guardians, it doesn't make sense. That's another article I don't want to do, but back to the article at hand. With all the comic history Supergirl has with the Legion, why wouldn't at least some of these heroes appear on the show? I imagine this show on The CW & if we look carefully enough, it looks like each show ('Arrow' & 'The Flash') has a group of some kind on it/will be on it; 'Arrow' = Suicide Squad, 'The Flash' = Green Lantern Corps/CW Justice League/Doom Patrol. If I were to pick the members that would appear, I, of course, would pick Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl & Cosmic Boy with 2 more additions because why not, I would pick Timber Wolf (mainly cause I really like the character) & either Brainiac 5 or Triplicate Girl. But those are who I would like to see.
Helena Bertinelli/Huntress. Why? 'Cause 1) Helena is badass & 2) cause Helena has some comic history with someones clone. Winky face. Winky face. With how her story is progressing in 'Arrow', it would seem that Helena would want to get back in Ollie's good graces. So, why wouldn't Oliver send Helena off to investigate an alien while he is busy with the seasons big bad? Oh, yeah, reasons! Another reason why I put Helena on this list is because I think it would be a safe assumption to assume that a certain clone will end up on the show. Build up the relationship between Kara & Helena so when, well, Kara comes into play, Kara Zor-El can trust Helena to be Kara Zor-L's guardian while adjusting to Earth. Maybe get a mini-web series of Zor-L & Helena going off & doing some kind of mission; kinda like how during, I believe, season 2 of 'Arrow' Felicity & Roy were doing that blood swap thing.
Kara Zor-L/Power Girl. Now, this Kara, if my memory serves me right, in the comics starts off as a hero. What I would like to do if I were in control, I would infuse 2 origins; her Supergirl clone origin mixed with her unofficial 'Justice League Unlimited' origins, starting off as a villain turned into a hero. But, I would be happy with the whole New 52 comic run where she is part of another universe. I'm pretty sure a lot of people like this character enough to want a live action adaptation. I would love to see if the show runners would use the same Supergirl actress to play Power Girl or cast a new girl for the character.
Koriand'r/Starfire. Just by having Kara, we know that there are aliens out there. So, why not introduce an orange-skinned alien that gives junior detectives & junior archers massive b-1ers. Plus, Kori's backstory is amazing. An alien princess with a sister with a massive hatred towards her, escapes to Earth after practically being enslaved by her own sister. Kara could definitely be one of those people to help Kori adjust to Earth customs. Yes, the amount of money that would be put into this episode would be fucking huge. But, this is a wish list.
And last, but not least, #1;
Conner "Kon-El" Kent/Superboy. I'll be honest, my love for this character might be the main reason he is on this list in this spot, but I think the relationship Conner & Kara have in the comics, in my opinion, is so good, why wouldn't someone want to adapt it? Take the "H'El on Earth" story arc, it, for the most part, focused around Superboy & Supergirl dealing with H'El as he terrorized Earth. I would have Cadmus involved in the series. Maybe his origins can be kinda like the Young Justice TV series origins where he was an experimental clone (Supergirl) & when woken, attacks his sleep-blocker(s) due to being filled with images & "stories" of Supergirl & co. being total a-holes. I would actually like Superboy to be the sidekick for the series like how Roy is the sidekick for 'Arrow'.
Tell me what you think down in the gootch! Let me know which hero(es) you would like to see in the series in the gootch
