Maid of Steel: A Supergirl Podcast

Jun 4, 2021

Midvale is the small town where Kara Zor El became Kara Danvers. A place where she found a new purpose. Alex Danvers' life was easier before Kara crashed into it. She had two loving parents and not so much responsibility. Now her mother expects her to be a good Earth ambassador and make sure her sister is safe and happy. Maybe that part would not be such a hardship if she hadn’t lost her father to achieve that goal.  Alex has never had a sister before but she promises to get better at it.

The first time we visit Midvale two broken hearted women are returning to their childhood home for some comfort. It is there that we learn that the death of Kenny Li in high school really brought Alex and Kara closer together. It was the first time they worked together to make the world a better place. It was a story told through a flashback so no harm was done to the timeline.

In season six we get another Midvale based story. However this one involves time travel in a post crisis world.   In order to save Kara from the Phantom Zone they need a sample of her blood.  Nia and Brainy head to 2009 to save their Maid of Steel. It is a reality where Kenny Li has survived. Yes that also means the sisters don’t form that initial bond as a consequence of his murder.   However, the Green Butterfly is not concerned. In any timeline, through any twist of fate, these two sisters will find their common ground. They are destined to make the world a better place. Kara is the Paragon of Hope but she does not stand alone. Right beside her stands Sentinel, always watching and protecting as a good big sister does.
