Supergirl’s Kara Danvers is one of the most beloved characters on the show, yet certain fans on Reddit have plenty of unpopular opinions about her.
Kara Danvers is the woman behind Supergirl, and one of the most beloved characters on the CW show. With her quirky personality, her kindness, and her overall joyful demeanor, Kara is the kind of person everyone wants to have as part of their friend group. She is dependable, funny, and always there when she is needed.
Kara apologizes too much
Finding out that Kara is Supergirl was a heartbreaking moment for Lena Luthor, who considers Kara one of her best friends and felt terribly betrayed when she learned that she had been lied to all these years. Yet, Kara’s choice to keep Lena in the dark about her true identity in order to protect her from potential harm is understandable.
All in all, Kara had her reasons and she apologized to Lena for not telling her sooner. But according to this Redditor, Kara practically begged for Lena’s forgiveness, and that was too much.
Her journalism career is nonsensical
Kara’s career is all over the place for this Reddit user, who believes the show only remembers that Kara is a journalist once in a while and uses it only when it is convenient. It’s not that Kara shouldn’t be a reporter, it’s more that she hardly ever is one.
The current sixth season, for instance. While Kara is stuck in the Phantom Zone, her colleagues at CatCo cover for her saying she is on an assignment with Cat Grant. Will Kara have to produce some Pulitzer-worthy piece of journalism when she gets back to back up her cover story? Probably not, because as this fan argues, the show doesn’t put much wait on this being her day job.
Kara & Mon-El made a good couple
The die-hard fans of Supergirl hated the quickly-ended relationship between Kara and Mon-El. In fact, the overall sentiment regarding Kara and Mon-El within the show’s fandom is so strong that some fans are hesitant to publicly state that they didn’t have an issue with that relationship.
Yet, they are out there and they support the fact that Kara was with someone who, just like her, had lost their own world and with whom she had a genuine connection.
Perhaps Kara should remain single
Aside from rejecting Kara and Mon-El’s romance, certain fans are simply not convinced by any of the relationships Kara gets into and would rather see her remain single until the end of the show.
In fact, Kara hasn’t been in any sort of strong relationship since her break-up with Mon-El and most of her other love interests have been fleeting, at best. Given that the show is halfway through its last season, it wouldn’t be surprising if Kara remains proudly single through the end of Supergirl.
Kara is just a pale copy of Superman
This Redditor thinks that Supergirl’s writers have not done a very good job with Kara’s character and that they actually only made her a female version of Clark Kent. The likeness between the two Kryptonians, from the fact that they are both reporters to their similarly dorky personalities, and the fact that they share the same nemesis (aka Lex Luthor) are testaments to the idea that Kara is just a copy of Superman.
