Whenever I read comic book blogs, I always see people hating on "Supergirl" (The show) because they say it's "too political". Honestly, I hate that show because the casting is wack and the writing kills me slowly. Being "too political" is the dumbest excuse to hate a superhero or comic. There is no such thing as a mainstream superhero that isn't political. People look at Superman as if he is the ultimate red, whit and blue superhero, but he is the Ultimate illegal alien. (I hate that term). In Smallville Season 6 episode 9, Clark finds out that his neighbor, farmer McNally, is capturing immigrants and forcing them to work on his farm and if the migrant workers try to escape, he kills them. Clark only finds this out because one of the workers, a young boy named Javier, managed to escape and was hiding in Clark's barn. The most interesting thing about this episode to me is when Clark's mom, who is a Senator, finds out that Clark is hiding the migrant boy, she declares that they have to turn the boy into the police. Clark made the case that the boy has the right to be here and has the right to be able to find his mother, whom he was separated from because she left him to find work. Clark reminded his mom that he is an alien from another planet and His parents harbored him for years. Mrs.Clark realized that she was being a complete hypocrite and she decided to help Javier and keep him safe.
It's crazy how that episode came out in 2006 and it's still relevant to what is going on now. People who think it's ok to rip children away from their parents, certainly would not feel the same way if someone decided to rip their children away from them. This country needs to get its act together
PS: At the end of the episode, Clark's mom found Javier's mother and got both of them legal documents. And Clark got Mr.Mcnally thrown in prison.
A great comic book hero is always built on political justice
