Black Widow: Super spy who has trained all her life, remorseful killer, dayjob is saving the world, methodical, calculating, cynical, sly, super edgy, super cool badass
Supergirl: Optimistic sunny girl finding out she can fly, feeling like she has a place on earth, living and working in a bright bustling city, super cool badass
I love both characters equally. I will totally admit that comparing Supergirl’s show to the SNL Black Widow parody is funny to an extent, but it also feels like people are hopping aboard the “all female characters are the same” boat. In the context of Kara’s happy go lucky personality, her TV show works for her. Throwing Natasha into that situation would be, as we all know, ridiculous. There is room for both kind of characters in our media! Demand both kinds of characters, and then some!
