Kara tries to convince Elseworlds-Alex to help her save reality from a man wearing Superman’s face. Also we get one last peek at Batwoman before she flies off into the night!
Supergirl goes to Gotham and meets the one, the only: Batwoman. And also Kate Kane, what a coincidence!
Kara is called in to help Barry and Oliver solve the mystery of why they seem to have switched lives in the first episode of the three-party SuperFlarrow crossover.
13 Christmas and three Thanksgiving episodes full of lesbians in matching two-piece pajamas, bisexuals in endearing sweaters, and a trans woman dressed up as a literal Holigay Angel.
Nia uses her prophetic dreams to help Kara and the rest of Team Super find Agent Liberty.
Lena is locked in her lab doing Science while Supergirl faces the Children of Liberty yet again.
Happy Thanksgiving from Team Super! Alex, Kara, Lena, and Nia gather around and debate politics, as is the Thanksgiving tradition.
Alex works with Col. Haley to stop Jensen, while Kara works with Nia interviewing an alien healer.
Kara is still trapped in a suit, so Alex tries to fight the baddies without her while Lena works to save Supergirl.
This was mostly a filler episode but Alex works with Lena to save Kara, so that’s pretty cool.
“Our identities shouldn’t require any external validation. But they do.”
In an episode laden with all-too-relevant metaphors, Alex, Kara, Lena, and Nia all deal with the recent anti-alien sentiments causing unrest in National City in different ways.
Nia Nal is the hope we all needed on this show, and Alex Danvers’ haircut is gayer than ever.
“EVEN THE STRAIGHTS CAN SEE IT.”
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences — like Hollywood itself, and mainstream TV criticism — continues to be dominated by a voting block of mostly straight white men. So, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to host our own Autostraddle TV awards to coincide with the Emmys.
Alex and Sara and Anissa and Nyssa and Betty McRae, oh my!
“I felt connected to her on a deep level — she is the only girl I’ve written an entire zine about — but wasn’t ready to really engage with it.”
Bicycles on TV mean independence, coming of age, letting go, transformation! Motorcycles on TV mean bad bois! So it’s no surprise that lesbian and bisexual TV characters are on bikes all the time.
Wynonna Earp is already renewed, Supergirl adds the first trans superhero to TV, Steven Universe is getting a movie, AvaLance lives, American Horror Story: Apocalypse (for real), Nafessa Williams always knows what to say, Tig Notaro on Star Trek: Discovery, queer Charmed, and big hopes for Rosa’s bi storylines on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
I like to power up my spirit by swooning at the TV. Maybe you do too?
