I would have voted for Superboy (Jonathan Kent), but that was before Bendis and Taylor ruined the character for me. I haven’t been following Superboy’s(Connor Kent) adventures for some time now. Same could said for both Steel and Krypto. While I like Melissa Benoist‘s Supergirl, the show has been going down hill this season. And Supergirl has been in the spot that much or at all this season. And I just haven’t been reading Supergirl’s comics either. Which leads me to vote for other. And the only other Super member of Superman’s family that I can think of is Jordan… Read more »

I want to make a correction on what I said earlier. I meant to say “Supergirl hasn’t been in the spotlight that much or at all this season” not “ Supergirl has been in the spot that much or at all this season.” A couple of typos that needed to be fixed.

On the one hand I do think that people who feel like having a bunch of ancillary super or bat or spider or Hulk people etc. “de-uniques” the main character have a point and to some extent I would agree. Yet for me there are cases where I’m wiling to make the exception for it. I kinda feel like if you’re going to do that it at least needs to be kept to a “family” rather than it being a gaggle. I also feel like that if your company can publish more than one title featuring the same character there… Read more »

I’m on a somewhat opposite side of this, in that I like the notion of a super-family well enough, but I prefer it to be entirely adoptive and united under the banner and the symbolism of the core character, rather than actual shared origins or blood relations. The post-Crisis era was kind of perfect for me on that; Conner, the adopted son, Matrix, the adopted sister/cousin and then people like Steel in the extended family. I never could grow fond of Kara, I don’t know why, I just can’t find the hook in her character. I don’t hate her, I… Read more »

Yeah that just may be a thing where one either likes having the closer relation to the main hero or you don’t. I guess I’m just someone who enjoys that relation more if there’s gonna have to be be more than one person with an \S/ running around. Maybe it was because I knew Supergirl as Kara first but it was hard for me to hook into shape-shifting clone of Lana Lang from a pocket dimension and then an Earth bound angel or whatever. For my own taste it was all just too convoluted and lacked the charm of the… Read more »

I voted for Jon because I was envisioning him as Jurgens and Tomasi and Gleason’s ten year old. I loved that version of the character.

I’ve always liked the live-action iterations of SUPERGIRL. When I was a child, Helen Slater really captivated me as SUPERGIRL in her movie. After that I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of SUPERGIRL with Melissa Benoist. (Sadly, after season 2, I stopped watching The CW’s SUPERGIRL show because it was filled with too much SJW content. Additionally, they showed disrespect to SUPERMAN when he was a guest on the show after season 2). Other than SUPERGIRL, I’ve always had an appreciation for STEEL. I just really like his story and his support for SUPERMAN. So for me, STEEL is 2nd… Read more »
