    Listening to you guys talk about Kara’s storyline not really being her own but William’s got me thinking. What does that actually mean and is it a bad thing?

    I started off disagreeing with you and then realised that I thinking about the “professional” and you were referring to the personal aspect of the storyline.
    >
    As a “professional do-gooder” either as a reporter, super-hero or just Kara being Kara I think this storyline is equally hers. It started with her investigating the death of Doctor Stafford, then suspecting and investigating William only to end up not so much assisting William as muscling in on his investigation. I would say that the storyline throughout these last few episodes is Kara pursuing an investigation off her own initiative and following the leads where they take her.
    >
    I think it’s the definition of heroic characters to help other people with their problems. To provide an assist so to speak.
    >
    Thinking back on it some my favourite shows from the old days with heroic protagonists were all about providing the assist. Shows like Quantum Leap, MacGyver and The Incredible Hulk almost always involved the main character getting involved with the problems of the characters they met in that episode.
    >
    A hypothetical episode of the Incredible Hulk could involve David Banner befriending a kid who is looking for his older brother who has disappeared. The episode would end with the brothers being reunited after The Hulk beats up the kidnappers. The police and reporters show up and Banner goes back on the run.

    Isn’t part of what we enjoy about superheroes watching them helping people? Getting involved in other peoples lives and helping them sort out their mess?
    >
    I’m not saying Kara shouldn’t have her own mess or problems to deal with but the danger is she could get so bogged down in it that were barely see her being heroic. To some extent I feel that happened with the Netflix Marvel shows such as Jessica Jones. They talked about Jessica being a hero but most of the series was about Jessica dealing with her own problems and not helping other people with theirs. At least that’s how it felt to me.
