    There really hasn't been a hint to suggest she'd be better off on her own. Every episode seems to beat us over the head that she's not up to fighting by herself.


Yes but I rationalize that as they hold her back. If this was a different show I would be singing the support staff's praises. Buffy, Angel, Arrow, Flash etc...the hero has support staff that are 80% useful.

But Kara's support staff sucks. Winn is a wallflower that hasn't had an interesting subplot since season 1. Jimmy contributes nothing. Alex tries her best but she's also the only interesting relationship there. Winn and Jimmy could be removed and the show wouldn't lose a beat.

    But I do agree with you that's how it should be. Superman doesn't tend to get help. Heck, the best Superman is when he's all by himself and a complete fighting beast. And when he's on the ropes, he survives by himself by being devious. Kara shouldn't be any different. She is not Buffy. She shouldn't have a Scooby Gang backup.
