I wouldn't want the clueless kara of the old movie though- by all means start her as not adapting to life on this planet but get over it pretty quickly. i mean these days kara is the pop culture cool character of DC.
I think you make some really good points. As I've said before, for myself, I'd like to see them give us a Kara that was similar to STAS/JLU. Like you said, it would bring in another demographic.

I don't know if Singer would be willing to do this, however. He really seems to distance himself from the animated versions of the characters that have been so popular. It's possible he could change, but I'd have to see it to believe it. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I'm skeptical.
