* IdiotPlot: Ok, Kara. So you're personally responsible for losing the Omegahedron and decide to man up and go after it yourself. You heard less then 5 feet from you that without the Omegahedron Argo City has only a few days to live. So you spend the first day learning to fly, go to sleep in a park, then spend the second day making up your alter ego and going to school. Even when you get a solid lead on the Omegahedron and get up to go after it you sit down and complete the day, play soccer and shower because...the teacher and Lucy Lane said so? In addition, Selena also isn't the same one in the movie as she wastes her time using the Omegahedron to pick up guys instead of taking over the world.
** alternatively Kara's friend/mentor is the one who took the omegahedron to use for his own amusement whilst fully aware of potential for misuse/trouble and then gave it to her to play with so it can be argued that he is far more responsible for dooming Argo city than supergirl. Also on earth Kara is basically stranded on a strange world with no money, food or shelter which is why her first night is spent sleeping rough. Infiltrating the school is quite a clever way to gain food and shelter for free. Selene is only interested in romancing Ethan because she mistook the omegahedrons reaction to karas proximity as a sign that Ethan was important somehow to her future plans of world domination and decided that a love spell was the easiest way to get him onside.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: As incoherent as the film ended up being Helen Slater really worked on her role, earning herself a Saturn Award nomination. Even the reviewers who hated the film tended not to criticise her performance.[[/folder]]

* IdiotPlot: FairForItsDay: WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick said one of the movie's redeeming things was that it didn't try to play Supergirl rescuing Ethan for laughs - because it was a girl saving a guy. Not once does Ethan show discomfort from getting rescued by a woman.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Some people just watch the movie to see Helen Slater in the very flattering Supergirl suit.
* {{Narm}}:
** Ethan can't pronounce the name 'Selena'. It's not as if it's an obscure name.
** Zaltar decides to forgo a RousingSpeech with Kara. When she says "I can't", he just replies "you ''can''" and that works. It gets a MeaningfulEcho too.
** The fact that Kara's home is so easily damaged by a little toy butterfly popping the wall. Is a sheet of plastic all that's protecting it from the forces of space?
* SpecialEffectFailure:
** Selena tries to choke Supergirl to death - by stretching the film.
** Kara uses SuperSpeed to type up a letter to get herself enrolled in the school. Except while she's speeding around the room, the leaves outside can be seen moving fast - to show that the film was just sped up.
** Zigzagged with the flying effects. Some look like very obvious blue screen, others still hold up reasonably well.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: As incoherent as the film ended up being Helen Slater really worked on her role, earning herself a Saturn Award nomination. Even the reviewers who hated the film tended not to criticise her performance. She also takes special care to give subtle differences between Supergirl and Linda Lee, making it very believable that they could be different people.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** Selena as a witch could have been quite a unique villain. Superman and Supergirl are actually vulnerable to magic - so Selena could have given Supergirl a run for her money. Instead she mostly uses her magic to cast a love spell on a man, and fight with Supergirl for his affections.
** Not much effort is made to give Kara an arc. She jeopardises the safety of her home and goes to Earth to make amends, which could have set up a nice arc about her maturing and learning to be a hero. But she instead spends the movie doing absolutely nothing for ages and being a complete idiot.
* TrappedByMountainLions: Kara enrolling in school under the alias Linda Lee. She completely forgets that she went to Earth to find the Omegahedron - and that she's only got a few days to do so.
* UnfortunateImplications: The Nostalgia Chick and Linkara [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVPUV5KfndM criticised]] the film in their review - namely that the supervillainess only cares about casting a love spell, and that there's more emphasis on Selena and Kara fighting over Ethan than the impending destruction of Kara's home. It's also pointed out how sexist it is to make the first ever film about a female superhero a ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' type story about "a lost and lonely little girl trying to get home"

* TheScrappy: The Post-Crisis Kara Zor-El was this [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2298145.html for some time.]] Traits of hers included: An inordinate amount of time spent [[LetsYouAndHimFight beating up other heroes]], [[DesignatedHero complaining about having to do heroics]] (while wearing the logo of the world's most famous hero on her chest), making [[KickTheDog moves that would instantly mark anyone else as irredeemable]] (like selling the Bottle-City of Kandor to supervillains, then threatening to break PowerGirl's arms for being understandably pissed), [[CreatorsPet receiving constant praise from all those around her]] [[JerkSue despite the above,]] being stronger than Superman (later RetConned), and a solo series plagued by disgustingly bad FanService, {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s, and [[{{Stripperific}} a skirt that was more a belt with a ruffle on it than anything]]. The hatred hit its peak around #14 of said series, when she fought [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]], a thoroughly popular character who had recently been changed into a CardCarryingVillain. The near-unanimous reaction to Kara winning the fight ([[AssPull with a power that had never been seen or hinted at before]]) was, essentially, "[[MisaimedFandom Fuck you, Cass won.]]" Since then, she's been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by doing actual heroics and dialing down the JerkAss traits, but it took some time before readers ever really forgot "Super Paris Hilton".

* CompleteMonster: The Post-Crisis version of [[SociopathicSoldier Benjamin Martin Krull]], alias [[NuclearNasty Reactron]], was [[{{Sadist}} never a nice guy]], and is Supergirl's ArchEnemy. His first clash with Supergirl saw a vast amount of property damage and significant casualties, with many survivors suffering from radiation sickness or cancer. It was in the ''ComicBook/NewKrypton'' storyline, however, where Reactron really crossed the line. Having been rebuilt by ComicBook/LexLuthor into a {{cyborg}} with a Gold Kryptonite heart, Reactron invades New Krypton alongside Metallo, depowering and killing numerous Kryptonians, threatening to rape Supergirl, and then murdering her father, Zor-El, in front of her by giving him radiation sickness. Tasked by General Lane with eliminating Supergirl, Flamebird, and Nightwing, Reactron murdered all the soldiers assigned to help him when they expressed doubts about the mission, and did his best to slowly torture Supergirl and Flamebird to death, all while gloating about how fighting two such attractive girls was a dream come true. Captured and tortured by Supergirl's mother, [[KnightTemplar Alura]], Reactron waited until Supergirl came to free him from the torture chamber to reveal that his capture had been a set up and that Luthor had transformed him into a living bomb. [[SuicideAttack Detonating himself]] with [[GoOutWithASmile a smile]], Reactron gives a [[DissonantSerenity serene look]] as he incinerates Alura, the city of Kandor, and the [[EarthShatteringKaboom entire planet]] of New Krypton, [[FinalSolution killing over ninety percent of the population]] in a single fell swoop. A lech, a bully, and a thug at his core, Reactron is a study in just how horrific it can be when somebody like that gets their hands on real power, and has done more to hurt Supergirl than any of her other adversaries, killing her father, her mother, and her entire race in a matter of weeks.
