* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** When Superman and Kara are battling on Apokolips, Superman begins to exposit about how Darkseid is controlling her. However, as his speech goes on he becomes less calm and more...[[SanitySlippage enthused]]. [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness Now he sees the truth, that she can not be reasoned with]]. His speech becomes more manic as he speaks, and it suddenly seems all too possible that Darkseid never did brainwash Kara at all, and it is ''Superman'' who forces her to change loyalty after he has knocked her out. The fact that nothing is ever shown of Darkseid's supposed brainwashing, and Kara does not recant her loyalty to Darkseid until she has already been brought back to Earth, seems to lend credence to this theory.
** [[MoreThanMindControl Alternately, Kara was still never brainwashed, she did agree with Darkseid]], until back on Earth she realized that even if she agreed to go back and be a Fury again, he would still kill her. That's why she opted to stay on Earth. Next to being a conqueror for Darkseid, there's nowhere in the universe she could get better training and respect than on a world filled with Super-heroes.
** However, she looked pretty darn terrified when Darkseid made the offer, and Barda (who has first hand experience) seems to think he did.
** Batman breaking his one rule to stop Darkseid from using a kryptonian as enforcer was a bluff. Right? There is a lot that could speak for or against the bluff.

* InferredHolocaust: Wonder Woman and Harbinger ambush Kara and Superman in a park to demonstrate the risks of leaving her in the city without proper training, highlighting her [[PowerIncontinence inability to control her powers]] and the massive collateral damage that results. She points out that if this attack had happened in daylight, with people in the park, there could have been countless innocent casualties when Kara lost control of her [[EyeBeams heat vision]]. Nobody seems to notice that her beams do not stop after twenty feet: the eye beams that missed the local statues and furniture will keep going ''until they hit something'' (or dissipate after a couple ''miles''). Given that this is a major metropolitan area, the odds are very good that Kara just directly vaporized a person, or demolished a building. More immediate to the discussion is that, since Kara and Superman were walking in the park as simple tourists, it is obviously not empty just because it is night. (And you know Clark wouldn't have had her out very late.) Though fewer in number than during the day, there would still plenty of people in the immediate area to be killed during this "demonstration."

Likewise, though Creator/SummerGlau was almost universally well received when she was announced as Supergirl, there were still several requests from fans for Creator/NicholleTom to return to the role that she had also played during the DCAU.
