I hope i’m not getting ahead of myself here, but you know that 10-15 years from this very moment, this is exactly how Mike is going to look at Eleven when she walks down the aisle on their wedding day.
I think what makes me love Supergirl so much more than Superman (not dissing Superman… I love him a lot too… Kara is just bae) is the added depth she has to her character. I mean, she REMEMBERS Krypton. She remembers home, family, belonging. Yeah, Clark dealt with growing up different and having to learn to control his powers but his adopted Earth family was the only family he ever knew. He didn’t lose family the way Kara did. Hell, she lost her whole world. And then to find out the one thing she was sent away for… to protect Kal… is no longer required of her. She wasn’t needed anymore. She’d lost her purpose, too. All of this, and Kara is still so unbelievably GOOD. She is kind and selfless and strong in a million other ways besides her physical strength. Like, people talk about how good Clark/Kal is. And he IS good. But he never had a real reason not to be. Kara had several reasons to hate everyone and everything and be a supervillain instead of a hero, but she chooses to protect and serve anyway. And that’s why I love Kara so much.
Imagine: Protecting Eleven with your life no matter what. [x]
Y/N: Do you know how dangerous that was, El? Eleven: I.. I was just helping the boys. Y/N: I know, sweetheart, but you have to be more careful. If someone knows what you can do… I don’t know what would happen. Eleven: *eyes widen* I’m sorry. Y/N: No, it’s fine. I wouldn’t let anything happen to you, anyway.
