    With Kara getting her body destroyed, you would think Kal would have flown over to help her out, right?
    Or Mon El and Jonn would have leaped into battle?

Wouldn't that make Kara look bad though? She meets a female villain and gets her butt handed to her so the men in her life bail her out and beat up the bad guy? She hasn't really gone anywhere in her heroic journey if the men do all the work for her while she's recuperating.

Given this situation where she's fighting another woman I think Kara should man woman up and beat this villain herself. I mean let's be honest this show force feeds us this female empowerment angle all the time. Kara needs to win this battle herself if they're going to justify that angle.

Now by all means if an alien army comes ask the menfolk for help but if she's fighting a villain one on one (and particularly a female one) she needs to handle that herself. She's the main character. She needs to earn that.

Reverend Meteor (I would be comfortable with the female empowerment angle if this was a show about Wonder Woman or Catwoman. Kara's just a ripoff of her male cousin...she's not her own person)
