Critic reviews for We Can Be Heroes
I thought every time this B story relied on visuals, things worked out well. But at times, J'onn (and actor David Harewood) are reduced to narration, and it feels kind of campy. Overall, though, I enjoyed this storyline.
With drama this potent, dynamics this fun and questions this increasingly complex, I hope they take all the time they need.
Can't we just explore Alex and Maggie's relationship more, especially since it feels more organic and much better developed?
Emotions, feelings, the inevitable prejudices and soft spots that come from the development of strong, complicated characters...
I really wish I could go back in time, go into the Supergirl writers' room, and tell them to not go the Guardian route with James. It's kind of wrecking everything...
