Oh my bad, I missed the "live-action" part.

Yeah, it seems several of the ones that wore a dress or skirt at one time now wear pants or a jumpsuit in live action. Miss Martian, Indigo, Mystique, Catwoman. Even in Injustice 2 they have Supergirl wearing pants.

I think that could just be iconic for Supergirl. It seems people expect her to be in a skirt, kind of the same way they expect Superman to have red outiewear.

Apparently the red diaper look in Supergirl New 52 didn't go over that well. I wonder how people feel about the pants in Injustice 2.
So I take it no other DC superheroes other than Wonder Woman wear a skirt then.

I don't know if there is or was a Floriana Lima thread here, so if there is, you have my permission to send this to it.

Looks like Officer Sawyer is showing some love to our REAL heroes out there. On her Twitter, she posted

Quote:
Hey let's show our LOVE for our veterans! The 37th National Veterans Wheelchair Games starts July 17! Follow #NVWG to watch & get updates.
That would be tomorrow. She was actually responding to a tweet by Casey Affleck, brother of movie Batman Ben Affleck.

Thumbs up to Flori for this. Personally I am anti-war, but the way our veterans are treated is enough to make me want to call on the entire Justice League!

The vets prove heroes do not have to capes, but it couldn't hurt. Some of my relatives and friends have served from WWII to the War on Terror.

Thank you, Kel. Of course, seeing Melissa with the little ones just adds that spark. And Chyler knows about them being a mom of three.

Brace yourself for a massive cuteness overload. Recently Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima went to Vancouver's Aquarium Rescue Centre (Center) and Melissa posted a couple of pictures on her Instagram.

In this one, the three meet up with an otter...




And in this one, Melissa is cuddling...A BABY SEA OTTER

MASSIVE #CUTENESSOVERLOAD! "OTTERLY" MASSIVE!

Here's something I'd like to see them get into next season: How exactly did Eliza and Jeremiah become so tight with Superman? He trusted them enough to drop Kara off with them, presumably hoping they could raise the girl as well as the Kents did for him. So how did they all meet?

Kara said in the pilot that they helped him figure out his own powers and physiology back in the day. I'm guessing they were sort of his go-to information resource whenever he went up against scientifically unique villains too, since he didn't want to work with the DEO.

I would like to see some more scenes with Kara as a child, both on Krypton and in Midvale. Now that we have a new Alura that shouldn't be too hard. I wonder if the actresss
that played young Kara is still available though. In the episode "Alex" last season they just recycled the scene from "Manhunter" in the first season.

As it usually goes with child actors, she'll look noticeably older, so unless they recast, we probably won't see much more of young Kara on Krypton. But young Kara in her first few years on Earth should still be on the table. I personally would still like to see them shine a light on the whole "Kal abandoned her" situation through flashbacks at some point, and they could still do that with the actress/character being a little older, if they explore what happened with their relationship after she had settled in with the Danvers after a year or two.

I still didn't take the Superman abandoned her in that he was never around. More that he dumped her on a family to raise because he didn't feel he was up to the task. Given aswell the way Alex welcomed him in the first episode of S2 it's clear they'd met on a few occasions and his exchange with Kara about him loving her telling stories of Krypton to me showed the two kept in touch. I imagine he just flew in when he got chance, kind of like an uncle or cousin does that you see maybe a few times a year.

Was there a Supergirl reason for them going there? Or, was it just hanging out with otters for fun?

What would've been really cool is if Melissa, when she was much younger, had played a high school version of Supergirl in an earlier series. They could've then used footage from that if she was now playing a grown up version.

The thing is.....they could so easily use Melissa right now in some high school flashbacks....helping out a kid being bullied...herself being bullied and how she came through that, would be a fantastic episode. There would be no problem with Melissa playing a high school student. All she has to do is wear less makeup and she looks young enough.

I think maybe some time off for the three of them. But the one of Melissa cuddling that baby otter...I don't want to cry, but I don't think I can handle anymore cuteness...but my mind is saying MORE, MORE, MORE! Melissa Benoist for the record is still TV's cutest superhero/superheroine.

They might have been using the Aquarium for a scene and so, while they were setting up it's pretty boring waiting around, why not go and pet some otters....LOL
