lena lena

Lena Luthor being brought back as a series regular is important for me. For several reasons:

1) She is a strong, bold woman who is the CEO of her own company.

2) She is incredibly smart and she has never used her appearance to get ahead.

3) She is open to change and respects ideas that are different to her own.

4) She has almost died on a few different occasions but each time she comes out fighting.

5) She was brought up with disgusting, xenophobic views but she actively goes against her family and all that she knows because she isn’t like them.

6) She has been a great friend and provided wonderful moral support for Kara.

7) She is hardworking and driven. She worked into the night just so she could help a friend.

8) She saved the entire alien race and single handedly took down her mother who’s plan was to kill all aliens.

9) She is a victim of emotional abuse and she is constantly fighting, she is constantly battling with it but still remains good despite her horrible past.

10) She is played by Katie McGrath who is a very talented and giving actress. Who has given us such wonderful, raw emotions and scenes that both mend and break my heart.

So I am excited for Lena’s return for a lot of reasons. I am excited to see her bond with the Superfriends, I am excited to see her having drinks with Maggie, I’m excited to see her friendships develop and I am excited to see her company thriving, to see what she faces, to gain more backstory. I am excited to see more of a character who has been similar struggles to myself and has come out on top. I am excited for Lena Luthor.
