The new Super Girl show seems to be gaining popularity. There is a difference here with Melissa Benoist. The Super Girl portrayed here has muscles. She has powerful looking biceps. The image of the physically powerful woman has come to mainstream popular culture. However, there was minor presence in comics and occasionally in some films. Most female heroes have a thin body, which does not present power. The woman with the powerful physique seems to be gradually accepted for a mainstream audience. The show also is also breaking away from negative ethnic stereotypes. African American characters are developed on the program. The show seems to be representing the changing demographics of the United States. This is a positive development. Zennie62 explains the social and cultural significance.
