Supergirl as the Ultimate Outsider

God and Comics

The new CBS show Supergirl is soaring in the ratings. The crew discusses everything about the Girl of Steel, including her roots in the 1950s, her status as a feminist icon, and her rebirth in the last few decades as the ultimate outsider. Plus, Fr. Matt explains why Superman can't be French. All this along with our recommendation, This or That, and a whole lot more.
