@HubCityQuestion, I do not buy into the theory that a Superman TV series would detract from the Supergirl TV show. Yes, if they brought out a Superman TV show that did treat Supergirl as an underling, or second rate hero, then that would be an issue, and not cool. However, it does not need to be that way, at all.
Superman should neither be the dominate or the submissive character of the two. They should be equal partners in the fight to so what is right. Both respectful of each other.
So far, this the working theory is flawed, with the handling of superman as a second rate hero, just to promot women empowerment. I find that more harmful than positive in bringing women up to an equal status with men. Yes, they way it has been treated so far does help make women feel more powerful, but it also tends to make some feel like they are the better sex, and thus end up hating men even more because in their reality, many are just not being treated as equals, let alone as the dominate gender. Thus, creating and even bigger divide between male and female.
I think this needs to be corrected now. Tone down the “Women Empowerment” and shoot for Equality instead. I highly respect women, but do not want our roles reversed. Just changed to something more fair for both of us, men and women.
