More than ever, the world needs Supergirl

Supergirl
For comic book fans, we live in an era of almost embarrassing riches. Super hero related movies and television shows dominate the entertainment industry worldwide. Indeed, modern technology has enabled special effects production companies to produce exceptionally realistic action sequences that would have been impossible in the recent past. Yet despite the visual advances, stories about female super heroes have been scarce. Even when female super heroes are part of team such as Black Widow in The Avengers, their roles are largely secondary. For kids watching super hero movies and television shows, the subtext conveys the message that women are not as relevant as their male counterparts. Which is why the announcement of CBS’s Supergirl television series debuting this fall bears such importance. More than ever, the world needs Supergirl.
