The Iconic Wonder Woman, Linda Carter, Is Back!
In CW’s Supergirl, Lynda Carter, simply the most famous of all who dare portray the Amazonian heroine, returns to the boobtube.
She quickly made her impact as America’s president aiming to sign an Alien Amnesty Bill. It is because Aliens hide in the shadows in National City, and her new law would allow extraterrestrial beings to reveal themselves without fear of persecution. (Real character inspiration?)
Here are some excepts from www.washingtonpost.com:
The biggest shocker was Carter’s POTUS revealing herself to be some sort of alien herself. In the episode’s final scene, we see her walking away with glowing eyes and skin that turns red (similar to how the Martian Manhunter was introduced on “Supergirl” last season).
This twist signals that Carter should be a frequent presence this season, as viewers try to solve the mystery of her character’s identity.
The episode also offered a few fun Easter eggs of tribute to Wonder Woman. When a flame-emitting alien tries to assassinate the president by incineration, Supergirl catches on fire in protecting POTUS. As Supergirl’s costume burns, she extinguishes the flames by spinning — just as Carter’s Wonder Woman would. And when Supergirl gushes to the POTUS that she was excited to see Air Force One, Carter says, “You should see my other jet” — a nod to Wonder Woman’s invisible plane.
