Superhero Saturday and Sunday: TV’s Supergirl and TV’s Wonder Woman, two generations of female superheroes together for the first time

The new season of “Supergirl” is going to be super-wonderful in lassoing the world’s finest of female superheroes to play the President of the United States: Lynda Carter, aka Wonder Woman.

Carter led the first generation of girl power as the Amazonian warrior princes for three seasons on both ABC and CBS.  From 1975 to 1979, Carter defined the role of Wonder Woman and what she stands for: truth, peace, sisterhood, equality, compassion, justice, and love.  Putting all her might on the side of right, Wonder Woman symbolic stands for the red-white-blue known as the United States of America: fighting the forces of evil that ranged from Nazis in World War II to organized crime, terrorism, greed, and corruption in the world of man.

As National City’s Girl of Steel, Melissa Benoist is now taking flight in the fight for female empowerment: becoming a symbol of hope and positivity for the new generation against the “mean girl” power of Livewire (Brit Morgan) and Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci), Indigo (Laura Vandervoort), and other paranormal threats to the world.

On her Instagram page, Melissa posted a production photo of her with Carter, whom the sophomore superheroine hails her predecessor as “a wonderful woman”.  What is there to say?  Carter’s role on “Supergirl” will be recurring.

The new season of “Supergirl” is set to take flight on October 10, but catch up with back-to-back episodes of season one every Monday night.  Not only that, catch the classic adventures of Lynda Carter as “Wonder Woman” every “Sci-Fi Saturday Night” on Me-TV.
