monster el should have been connor kent/aka superboy and here’s a few reasons why
1.) connor kent is a clone of superman so kara would have seen him as a brother, and would’ve been able to help him, like a mentor. we don’t see many women mentoring men.
2.) one word SUPERMARTIAN!!! they were so great in young justice. we need more couples that are generally great and love and support each other
3.) speaking of young justice: they are bringing it back. what better way to get people to watch it, than have a version of supermartian on tv? they will get excited and watch the show and it will do well.
4.) kara being a mentor for connor would have been better and a better storyline than her being guilt tripped into liking a douche
5.) we could see more of tyler as superman and see how he’d react to a clone.
6.) kara could have found a new part of herself. which is what the writers seem to want her to do when she broke it off with james.
7.) james could have taken connor under his wing, because he is so close with clark he could have seen him as a little brother/friend.
8.) connor is a clone, and was cloned for the soul purpose to take over superman’s place, but with kara’s messages of hope and basically “you choose your own destney” he would learn to let go of this and become his own person
9.) lena lurthor and connor would have to meet and since connor’s human donor for his DNA is lex, it would be cool to see lena take him in, and treat him as a brother/nephew since she hasn’t always felt like taht in her family
10.) connor is a 1000000000% more interesting and a better character than monster el.
