This is our wildest, goofiest, most outrageous episode yet and why not, we’re taking on the challenge of creating a sequel to the 1984 atomic stinker, Supergirl. You know, the film about Superman’s cousin that was so bad Christopher Reeve backed out of a minor cameo and Warner Brothers refused to release it?
With former Hollywood heavyweights like Faye Dunaway, Peter O’Toole, Mia Farrow and newcomer Helen Slater in the title role, you would think it this superhero spin-off had what it takes to match the legacy of Richard Donner’s Superman, but you would be wrong.
Take hero with inexplicable logic, a villain whose fashion rivals the cast of Dynasty and a story that basically amounts to a super-powered catfight over a hunky doofus and it’s plain to see why this was a super-bomb at the box office. But it makes for some great comedy!
The Maiden of Steel has made a comeback recently on the popular CBS Supergirl TV series, but how do you continue the adventures of Kara Zor-El in a cinematic world now defined by Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel? Jeff, Justin and Adam came up with some pretty epic ideas and managed to work in a musical number that’s sure to offend somebody. Listen in and enjoy!
