Sterling Gates Writing For The CW Supergirl Show & Other News


Back in late December, Sterling Gates tweeted out this mysterious photo. At the time, it was unclear just what he was doing on the set of the Supergirl show but everyone was excited that one of the best Supergirl comic writers was somehow involved with the televisions series.

Last week, Supergirl TV unraveled the mystery and announced that Gates wrote an upcoming episode for the show! Here is that link: http://www.supergirl.tv/sterling-gates-writes-ep-13    Furthermore, it is now known that Gates will be writing the episode with Mr. Mxyzptlk!

As a Supergirl comic fan, I am thrilled that Gates is getting this opportunity. And we know that he feels comfortable with this version of Kara given the excellent Adventures of Supergirl run he wrote last summer.

I also know that Gates is a huge Superman fan as well. I can't wait to see what mischief Mxy is going to be up to. As written here before, Mxyzptlk has plenty of history with Supergirl in all incarnations. He has done everything from destroy her middle school to want to marry her. So will this be a silly 5th dimensional imp? Or an evil sorceror type?

Episode 13 is scheduled to drop on 2/20 (if my math serves me right). Can't wait!


More recently,  the show got early word that they will be back for season 3! That's incredible. Here is some coverage by Entertainment Weekly: http://ew.com/tv/2017/01/08/cw-supernatural-arrow-flash-renewed/

Think about how much we fretted over the show coming back for season two. Hearing that the CW recognizes what they have and committing to it! This is thrilling!


And then even kookier "news". The Music Meister, famed one-shot villain in an incredibly entertaining episode of Batman Brave and the Bold television show, has been named as the villain in the musical crossover episode between Flash and Supergirl. Here is a link: http://tvline.com/2017/01/08/supergirl-flash-music-meister-musical-crossover/

I think as soon as the musical crossover was discussed that fans everywhere clamored and begged for the Music Meister to be the villain. I guess this is news but it isn't surprising.

Incredible stuff all around!

Hi, may I please ask you, to your great knowledge, has Supergirl ever killed anyone in the comics? Ever? at any time?

I'm very pleased with "Supergirl" being renewed. The show isn't perfect -but of course, no show is-, but it is good enough for me, and as long as it helps to increase the Maid of Might's popularity and prevent another 1985 scenario from ever happening, I'll be happy to support it.

Moreover, I'm convinced that Marvel and DC are more focused on getting revenue from licensing their intelectual properties than from selling comics, so having a successful show is even more important than having a big-seller book.

In future episodes I'd love to see Supergirl's original villains (I'm sick of that "Supergirl lacks her own Rogue's Gallery" rubbish), Superman making more guest appearances (sadly I think he will not turn up again in the present season), and a Kara Danvers/Barbara Gordon team-up (unlikely unless FOX green-lights it, I'm afraid).

(In my perfect world, Kara would hang out with Babs and Steph the whole time, and would be friends with Donna, Cassie and M'Gann. But I digress)

Gates scripting an episode are great news. Now if we can get him back to write a Supergirl book set in the main continuity...

"Hi, may I please ask you, to your great knowledge, has Supergirl ever killed anyone in the comics? Ever? at any time?"

I'm not a Supergirl expert -unlike Anj-, but to my knowledge... she has. Sometimes.

Pre-Crisis Supergirl punched Lesla-Lar's spirit into oblivion and dissolved Nightflame's psychic manifestation, although those instances may not count as killing since they were spirits. I... think she was trying to kill Blackstarr in Supergirl volume 2 #15? I don't remember. And she definitely tried to kill the Anti-Monitor.

Peter David's Linda Danvers killed Xenon.

Post-Crisis Supergirl... she seemed have killed during the Kelly's run, but it was thankfully retconned (and the less said about those issues, the better). She also tried to kill H'el but she failed (once again, the less said about that, the better). She killed the last worldkiller in "Red Daughter of Krypton", reasoning that destroying that thing wasn't killing, it was correcting a terrible mistake.

IMO, Supergirl is someone who usually refuses to kill her enemies but some few times she has been forced to.

Anj said...

Thanks for comments and I would agree with second anon's comments.

Lesla Lar was 'dead' (her body disintegrated). She could possess things. So don't know if it counts.

Nightflame was a portion of Kara's own psyche. So not 'death'.

She did plan to kill the Anti-monitor but never did.

Linda Danvers did kill Xenon. That act made her stop being Supergirl and (depending on your head canon) made her become Fallen Angel. Either way, that particular Supergirl (Matrix) isn't around anymore.

Perhaps the worst offense was the Joe Kelly Kara who apparently shot people while still on Krypton. It is hard to know (in the end) if that was a hallucination or reality. But that Supergirl wasn't a classic version in anyway.

And yes, the last WorldKiller was destroyed as an abomination/creation. I suppose people might say it was a creature, without a soul. But clearly it was sentient.

None of these are as cut and dried as Superman killing Phantom Zone villains with Kryptonite like in Byrne's run or the Zod neck snap in MoS.

aa3on said...

Thank you for all of your replies, I greatly appreciate it. I remember when Supergirl wore a Red Lantern Ring and she thought she had killed, she was quite distraught about it, turns out she didn't kill.

I guess what really bugs me is when Kara willingly (and very nonchalantly) used lethal-force in the TV show. I just wondered if that was the first time the character had done that, if so it's a horrible legacy.

It's been my observation that the CW are quite reckless with Supergirl's character. She held Metallo vulnerable and gave Alex the cue to kill him (out of character much?), this was Metallo's origin so there's no way Supergirl could know that he couldn't die so easily. She willingly just outright killed Rudy Jones/Parasite. Kara said herself that Rudy was alive, so when he absorbed her and J'onn, there's no reason from Kara's point of view to assume that had changed. Yet, as soon as Supergirl woke up, her very first idea was to kill. I know that she tried to reason with him, but here’s the thing; it was very clearly her intention that if he didn’t accept her help, she would kill him. Even if it had turned out that the Parasite did want her help, Supergirl was still ready and willing to kill. She wanted to help him so badly that she killed him. And then there's Cyborg Superman, she heat visioned half of his face off. She did this 'before' knowing he was a cyborg, that would've seriously maimed/killed a human. So that’s three very troubling things within the first eight episodes. And we’re not even halfway through the season yet. Supergirl will always now be a character in the TV show that has willingly used lethal-force. It's put me off watching the show; which is a great shame because I love the character.

The first season of the show was very consistent with Supergirl’s character. It founded her morality against using lethal-force so adamantly that there was even a mini-arc clearly establishing her aversion to killing (when she thought J’onn J’onzz had killed Astra, Supergirl made such a deal about it and even refused to work with him because there is 'always another way'). Supergirl in the first season was such an inspiration to aspire us to become better people. She was such a force for good; she represented humanity at its best. That’s why she’s a “super”hero. Non-lethal superheroes are supposed to find an alternative method to killing even when there doesn’t seem to be one. Supergirl is supposed to find an alternative option so that she wins without compromising her moral beliefs. I don’t want to see Supergirl failing to live up to her principles. I want to see her being… super. That’s why I became a fan.

And yes, it is very hard living inside my head. :)

I've commented as well that the show cuts it awful close on the whole "Superman and Supergirl Do Not Kill Ever" meme, its a little disconcerting because I think somewhere in the first three episodes Kara very pointedly refuses to kill a miscreant citing her cousin's example. To me, the no-kill policy is integral to the kryptonian kousin's mystique its what sets them apart from almost everyone else in the game these days, but as a practical notion it also perceived as quaint and old fashion...that is unfortunate IMHO.
Some of the show's lethality is due to it's tendency to underwrite & it's warp speed pace...I think we were no more than five eps in last year before Alex scored her first casual kill.
I wish the producer's would be a little more vigilant about this issue, but then I also wish they'd slow the pace and down and rewrite clunky dialogue and close up plot holes....:)
On the other hand I am looking forward to Sterling's Script, hopefully we will get some Serious Karatharsis.....and the renewal is extremely good clearly Supergirl is a major tentpole franchise on the CW all that does the character a world of good. I think at last The Sun Has Set on COIE # 7 and All It's Evil Works.

aa3on said...

Hi, JF. I agree with everything you said. Great post. I too think they need to slow the pace down. They try to cram so much into each episode that I feel the show has lost its emotional depth. The first season was so emotional and the material really gave Melissa Benoist the chance to show off what a great actress she is.

I've always said that there are plenty of other "superheroes" that kill. So leave the killing to them; why taint the morality of the only real superheroes that are left? I think it says a lot about us as a species that the "no killing" rule/morality is considered quaint and old fashioned.

I refer to the writers when I say this: If a non-lethal superhero isn’t smart enough to resolve a situation without resorting to deadly force, then that superhero clearly isn’t living up to his or her principles. That's not super, that's average. In such cases, no matter how much the writer’s “blur the lines,” the bottom line is if a non-lethal superhero uses lethal force, then the writers have proven themselves unimaginative, uninspiring, mundane and ordinary. They bring the “superhero” down to their level.

Just my opinion of course. :)

aa3on said...

And thank you, Anj. Yes in MoS and BvS (the infamous murder-verse) there was a lot of killing. Those films really aren't my thing. I'm a huge Batman fan, so seeing Batfleck just gunning people down I was like wtf am I watching? They said they're going to address it in the next film. But I've always said they can address it all they like, they can't negate it. Batman, in those films and the upcoming ones, will always be a character that has killed. Kind of like my gripe with Supergirl's use of lethal-force in the series. Though that wasn't half as bad as the killing going on in the movies. Comic book Batman would've hunted Batfleck down! :)

Anj said...

I think if we are talking about her killing, we are talking about 2 instances.

1) Her killing Red Tornado who may have gained sentience. Even if it was 'alive', I am pretty sure we saw a chunk of it fly off. Maybe the head still active?

2) Non - I assume her heat vision through the eyes lobotomized him and didn't kill him.

3) The Parasite - probably the most worrisome. But I would say that the human host was most likely 'dead', having been consumed by the parasitic alien. And, frankly, I am not sure you can vaporize and organism like that. My guess is we will see it again.

"Perhaps the worst offense was the Joe Kelly Kara who apparently shot people while still on Krypton. It is hard to know (in the end) if that was a hallucination or reality."

I file it under "Kryptonite-induced false memories/hallucinations. It never happened and it will never be brought up or discussed again". And yes, that Kara was not a classic Supergirl. Of course, we know what Kelly thought classic Kara was like.

"None of these are as cut and dried as Superman killing Phantom Zone villains with Kryptonite like in Byrne's run or the Zod neck snap in MoS."

I think I'd add "Superman 'looking after' Zod in Superman II" to the list. I mean, Superman threw Zod into icy waters. It'd instantly kill any non-powered person...

Anyway, fans and non-fans argue about this matter endlessly, and it depends on what kind of heroism you prefer: some people like heroes who kill; other people like heroes who never cross the line; and other fans don't mind when heroes or anti-heroes such like Wolverine, Luke Skywalker, James Bond... kill but think that Superman, Supergirl, Batman, Green Lantern... shouldn't kill.

I guess I fall into the third group: I don't care when Kenshiro -from Fist of North Star- kills, but the Super-cousins are supposed to inspire and show there's a better way. And personally I think the whole "Batman should kill the Joker and Superman is to blame for all people Luthor kills" debate is stupid, pointless and the "Superman/Batman should kill" complainers are people who never buy or read comics anyway.

"I think at last The Sun Has Set on COIE # 7 and All It's Evil Works."

Hush! Don't tempt Murphy!

Off topic... There's a "Recommended Reading" section in the DC Wikia. I was considering to register and ask permission to make a "Supergirl Recommended Reading" page. I guess the worst thing that can happen is to be said no. Well, if you don't mind, Anj, I would like to ask -since you're a bigger and more knowlegeable Supergirl fan than me- if you think this list is good enough or there's some glaring omissions:

"New Readers": Superman/Batman "The Supergirl From Krypton" arc, "Last Daughter of Krypton", "Supergirl Being Super" "Cosmic Adventures", "The Adventures of Supergirl"
"Further Reading": "The Unknown Supergirl" -Action Comics 278-285-, "Superman Family" 211-214 -the return of Lena Thorul-, "Many Happy Returns", "Superman Supergirl: Maelstrom", "Who Is Superwoman?", "Bizarro-Girl", "Red Daughter of Krypton", "Crucible"
"Single Issues": Action Comics #252, World's Finest #169, Adventure Comics #421, DC Comics Presents #28 "War World", Supergirl Volume 2 #19, Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, Solo #1 "Young Love", Supergirl volume 5 #34.
And in general, the Kupperberg, David, Waid, Gates and Bedard's runs.

By the way... Thank you. I have liked Superman since I was a kid and I watched his and his cousin's movies back in the 80's, but I was mainly a Marvel fanboy. When I decided to look for stories of Superman and Supergirl I didn't know where to begin. Fortunately, I've discovered and enjoyed many of these stories thanks to your wonderful blog.

I'm even thinking of reading some Legion of Super-Heroes issues. I was not interested in the Legion but your blog has piqued my curiosity. I blame you for this. I BLAME YOU. :P ;)

aa3on said...

I always assumed they had plans to use the Red Tornado again seeing that we kept seeing what was left of his arm throughout the first season. Maxwell Lord (a character I miss) I'm sure kept Red Tornado's arm, and we saw a hologram research display of it in his secret room 52 (great nod to the comics) where he created Bizarro Supergirl. I always thought Non wasn't dead but merely blinded and therefore just stunned. I'd love for the show to bring Indigo back, too. I'm sure we will see Parasite again; this still doesn't negate that Kara intended to kill before even trying to reason with it/him. I think they tried to cram so much into the Parasite episode that I'm sure the lethal-force option was just done because of time restrictions (still no excuse though). For that episode I think they should've gone for a minor villain rather than Parasite and just have the episode focus on Guardian's debut and Alex's coming out (which was beautifully handled).

Thanks for the catchup there, Anj. And great news all around! Great Sterling G is getting to write her on the TV series,
we all know he'll do a great job, and I hope it'll live up to our expectations!

I initially thought it'd be Mr. Mxyzptlk that'd bring Supergirl and Flash together to sing, but Music Meister... THAT has
possibilities :D :D And having a friend shown me that particular ep... Woooooooow!!

Joe Kelly... UGH! 'Nuff Seid.

...and can't 2nd 1st Anon's comment about Babs Gordon making an appearance on this series... c'mon, DC, WB and TheCW. MAKE
IT HAPPEN!

"So that’s three very troubling things within the first eight episodes. And we’re not even halfway through the season yet. Supergirl will always now be a character in the TV show that has willingly used lethal-force."

Not really. Seems to me that it's part of the overall character arc this season. setting up the 'using lethal means' dilemma for the first half, so it will eventually be dealt with in the second. That's because the show runners have already said that we'll see the return of supervillains Metallo, Livewire, Parasite and Cyborg Superman...perhaps as a sort of 'Supergirl Revenge Squad', or maybe being recruited by Project Cadmus, of which we haven't seen the last of either.

In any case, the heightened action this season has thrown the show off its balance from the first season a bit, although the loss of some character drama is more likely a by-product of not having Calista Flockhart on a regular basis for CatCo bits anymore. Not blaming Ian Gomez, who's doing what he can in channeling Lou Grant-like churlishness as Snapper Carr; it's just that he's not Cat. And without Cat, the focus has noticeably shifted over to the DEO and street fighting scenes. Still hoping to hear when Flockhart might return, as her scenes with Melissa were often among the strongest of last season.

aa3on said...

Hi, Ket. I respect your views and appreciate your reply. But whether the show deals with it or not, they can't negate the fact that Supergirl did use lethal-force. That's a fact now in the show. (Are they going to turn back time?) When Metallo shows up again (Metallo is said to return) what will Kara say? I thought we killed you? admitting fully that she intended him dead? I'm more interested in how they bring Metallo back. He will need another power source; but surely it would have been the most irresponsible thing ever for Supergirl and the DEO to have just left the Metallo bodies there for Cadmus to retrieve? As for Parasite, yes he could return, but again Supergirl couldn't know this; yet she still went for the lethal-force. Either way, Supergirl in the TV show will always be a character now who willingly killed. And that has ruined it for me.

When non-lethal superheroes (especially ones as iconic as Supergirl) use lethal-force, they degrade humanity and themselves. It is the polar opposite of their nature/purpose. They are supposed to find another way, always. The first season on CBS got it right… they got it so right in fact, that it even influenced the comics. So for the CW writers to play fast and loose with her character is simply inexcusable. In my opinion.

And I agree with you about the heightened action throwing the show off balance a bit. I think if they just slow the pace down and regain its emotional depth, then the show will once again have a strong heart (as it did in its first season).

aa3on said...

Also, Ket, I apologise to you if I seem crazy; but I feel quite passionately about the whole lethal-force issue. I understand it's my issue to deal with. It's nice to have a platform like this to read what other good people, such as yourself, thinks. :)

Gene said...

The fact that "The Music Meister" will be appearing on Supergirl's show has a ring of poetic justice to it. Unless your name was Bruce Timm, Kara was not going to be on your animated series.

Batman Brave and the Bold?
No.

Young Justice?
Nope.

Teen Titans?
Forget it.

I love it when the pendulum swings our way...

Very glad that Sterling Gates will play a more active role in the show.
I think Jamal Igle should also be part of the show, in fact he should be on the show. Have you seen him lately? He is totally buff:

In fact, I think Supergirl was going to be introduced in the third season of Young Justice before it was cancelled. I'm not entirely sure about it, though.

I hope she turns in YJ now the show has been un-cancelled.

And I can't wait to see her in Justice League Action!

When Metallo shows up again (Metallo is said to return) what will Kara say? I thought we killed you? admitting fully that she intended him dead? I'm more interested in how they bring Metallo back."

Well, the answer is pretty easy anyway, since Lillian Luthor was the one to end John Corben's sentient life by turning him into Metallo (she even states this in the season opener). Alex and Kara merely ended his Cadmus-induced rampage. And technically, Alex dealt the blow that ended him (for the moment), which of course, is in keeping with her character. Of course, this begs the question of where The DEO might be keeping his remains.

As far as Parasite goes, this becomes a gray area, as he may no longer be considered human by his transformation. I would concur that Kara acted rather recklessly, considering the nuclear consequences for the city if her desperate plan had backfired.

However, if anyone has a real beef with Supergirl, it's probably Livewire, who wouldn't even be super-powered if it wasn't for Kara's intervention. Whether the show will explore this facet of their relationship when she returns...well, we'll just have to wait and see. However, I would still question whether Kara has actually employed 'lethal force' just yet, as there have been no funerals thus far, except for Astra.

KET said...

"Also, Ket, I apologize to you if I seem crazy; but I feel quite passionately about the whole lethal-force issue."

Actually, I thank you for bringing it up! It is understandable that the show would evolve this season, what with all the changes (and the fact that The CW works more closely with Berlanti Productions, since they have more shows together coming up in the pipeline, such as Riverdale). However, growth and change seem to be the overall themes of this Supergirl season, so there are likely to be more turbulent times ahead for Kara and her friends. We're only half-way there yet; and now that the show is already renewed, the EPs can start planning ahead without worrying about where to move the sets this time. :)

KET said...

OK, one more time, and then I'll shut up for a bit...I forgot to answer these...

"Whatever Neil Patrick Harris wants to play "The Music Meister" the CW SHOULD PAY IT!!!"

IIRC, Neil is appearing on Broadway, so he's probably not available right now.

"I always assumed they had plans to use the Red Tornado again seeing that we kept seeing what was left of his arm throughout the first season. Maxwell Lord (a character I miss) I'm sure kept Red Tornado's arm, and we saw a hologram research display of it in his secret room 52 (great nod to the comics) where he created Bizarro Supergirl."

I'm assuming that any stuff associated with Max is likely being kept on the back burner right now, as actor Peter Facinelli is directing his first feature film at the moment (which sort of explains why we haven't seen him this season).

KET

aa3on said...

Ket. Yes it will be good to see Livewire again. I always thought her rivalry with Supergirl could be interesting due to the circumstances of her origin. But to be honest, I think I’ve already decided not to watch the show anymore. Or I will, but I’ll wait for this season to be released as a boxset so I can watch all of the episodes back to back instead of just one episode a week.

If there were a Mrs Parasite, I’m sure she would've arranged for a funeral with little Parasites in attendance. :)

Anonymous said...

Just for consideration, another time TV Supergirl was part of killing another living, sentient being was the Dominator
crossover episodes via heatvision and helping plant Stein's "kill switch" device with Flash. So I'd say I'm of the view
"killing shouldn't be the first option, but it should be an option when all else fails," eg. the aliens are at the door
and aren't here for a tea party. Trick is always finding that balance between two extremes in my humble opinion.

> the show runners have already said that we'll see the return of supervillains Metallo, Livewire, Parasite and Cyborg
> Superman...perhaps as a sort of 'Supergirl Revenge Squad'

To see that on screen? That'd be six ways kind of EPIC! Something like Supergirl issue #60 when Parasite, Silver Banshee,
Metallo and Kryptonite Man warp in to battle Supergirl. And I keep wishing for Reactron to make another appearance,
just because of Supergirl's interaction with him in the comics.

Time will only tell.

aa3on said...

Hi, anonymous. :)

Yes I did notice Supergirl firing her heat vision directly at the Dominators in the CGI sequences in the final crossover episode. The first time I noticed was when she took out several at once, I was okay with that because it looked like an original star trek series phaser stun burst. So I thought she was stunning them. But then I realised the show hasn’t shown that she can “stun” with her heat vision. If that were the case she’d be using her heat vision a lot more on villains. In the episode “Crossfire” Supergirl is clearly making sure not to hit the robbers with her heat vision, if she could stun them then surely she'd be hitting them directly. Then there was the other CGI sequence in the final crossover episode where Supergirl flies over and cleanly takes out two dominators with direct hits. That irritated me.

When she was planting the devices on the Dominators, weren't the devices designed to cause pain, therefore were non-lethal? I didn't have an issue with that (I only saw the episode once though so I may have missed something).

The impression I get with the CW is that the left hand doesn’t know what the right is doing. The CGI team clearly didn’t care what they depicted on screen and merely went for what "looked cool". The overall quality of this show, and Supergirl's character, has just plummeted since its move to the CW (just a personal opinion). As I’ve said, I won’t watch the show anymore. But I may still watch it when this season is released as a boxset so I can watch the episodes back to back; but even then I’d be apprehensive about what I might see, so I’m still undecided. For now though I’m just sticking with the Supergirl comics (along with Batman and Nightwing).

@aa3on
I'll have to rewatch the Crossover again to recall as well. My foggy memory is that Stein and co. were working on
nanotech as a weapon against the Dominators; whether they were specifically able to kill a Dominiator or not I
forget, but I seem to recall the dialog specifically being that.

And I agree the show isn't 100% pitch perfect, there still seems to be rough spots and plot inconsistencies, however
taking the historical view of things, I personally wouldn't trade away the TV Supergirl or her current pop
culture popularity for a repeat of her 20year banishment from the halls of DC history for anything.

Absolutely concur....I remember those dark times. Besides, Supergirl is supposed to learn from her mistakes, so if she or the show comes off as perfect all the time, then the show probably isn't doing right by her. Exploring the options in a variety of personal and heroic challenges will make for more compelling episodic viewing anyway.

"Whatever Neil Patrick Harris wants to play "The Music Meister" the CW SHOULD PAY IT!!!"

Actually, I was wrong about Neil's unavailability in a previous post. He's presently working on Netflix' "A Series of Unfortunate Events", which coincidentally also features Malina Weissman (young Kara from Season One, which explains why there are no Krypton flashbacks this season).

The Show Isn't 100% Pitch Perfect Anon again
Glad my sentiments echo with people. One final thought I wanted to share from after watching the 4way crossover,
and I remember thinking it just after the LOT episode ended, the fact that TPTB a) let Berlanti and co. do this
in the first place, b) gave them the resources to do it, c) the cast from the 4 shows agreed to do it, and
d) Berlanti and co. got to do it in their own way?

The pricelessness and my happiness at this is beyond words!

Again, wouldn't trade it away for anything!
