>The original Supergirl was classic. I would love to have her back. But at least the one we have is Kryptonian, is Superman's cousin, arrived on Earth as a teen-ager, is blonde, and wears the red, yellow, and blue. I'm thankful we have that much.

So a Kryptonian Supergirl is more important to you than a well-written one? Interesting.

>Teen-agers have attitudes. This is normal.

Teenagers can't fly or shoot death beams from their eyes, but that seems to be accepted in the comic book 'verse. Why can abnormal characters have abnormal characterization?

Writers come and go. The poor writing is ending now that a good writer is taking over. What matters long term is the basic design of the character.

Because realistic characterization is what helps us suspend our disbelief in the face of unrealistic powers.

Now I certainly would have accepted a return to the Silver Age Supergirl exactly as she used to exist, but DC didn't give us that. Yet what they gave us is better than anything else they've given us for the last twenty years so I focus on the positive.
