    A mirror and heat vision. (Seriously - in the comics anyway) ;)

    She wouldn't need to. She can see her legs without a mirror and just use her heat vision. Clark needs the mirror because it's his face. He can't see it without the mirror and I don't think heat vision bends at a 180° angle.

    So the heat vision is hot enough to burn off invulnerable hair but not hot enough to burn invulnerable skin?

    Well nothing bends at a 180° angle as it's pretty straight. :p

    Must go through a lot of febreeze trying to get the singed hair smell out of the house.

    It's called a straight angle because, if you draw it, it looks like a straight line. It actually turns and goes in the opposite direction. A zero angle continues along, in a line, in the same direction.

    As I said before, Latinx is not a biological category but a geographical and cultural one. It refers to people from Latin America, i.e. anywhere south of the Rio Grande (and a lot of people north of it too). There are Latinx people who are naturally blonde, just as there are Latinx people who are of African or Asian descent. Heck, there's a fair-sized population in northern Brazil descended from German immigrants. They're Latinx, because Brazil is part of Latin America, but they're as blonde and pale as they come.

    Of course, there's no reason they couldn't change Supergirl's hair color if they wanted, but it's not like they'd have to. If Jessica Alba could play a blonde Sue Storm, then Sasha Calle could play a blonde Supergirl.



    She'd have to be really flexible to get the backs of her legs that way.

    Good point. I don't think a mirror would make it any easier though. Maybe if she used two it could work.
    It's best not to think about these things too much.

    But Superman isn't the vertex of the angle, the reflective surface is. If Superman shoots a beam out of his eyes and it reflects at a 180° angle it will continue on in a straight line, if he shoots a beam and it reflects at a 0° (or 360°) angle it will hit him right back in the eye.

    I don't agree. Unless I'm forgetting something from geometry class, I'd say that the reflection would be defined as the amount of change from the beam's original path. So if it starts out heading east and is reflected 180 degrees, then it's heading west, back the way it came.

    Isn't that why she ditched the skirt?

    Angles of reflection, like angles of incidence, are typically measured from the normal to the reflecting surface.

    Really? I was just thinking of acrobats and contortionists. Though I guess I can see how the sentence could be misconstrued out of context.

    I mean the direction this discussion is going and the inexorable creep towards nether regions.

    You may disagree with the approach Gene Hackman took to playing Luthor, but the man has never been a hack.

    Even after Justice League's casting was announced, some CW-Supergirl fans were hoping Benoist's version would somehow become a part of the DCEU.

    Well the new TV version of the Superman suit has suddenly looked more like Henry Cavil's Superman suit from the films.
    (Sad as I liked the version they made for Tyler Hoechlin's appearances as 'Superman' on the Supergirl TV series looked better to me than what they had Cavil wearing...YMMV of course)
