The world of comic books and superheroes has long been an allegory for the acceptance of marginalized groups, and it’s endearing to see that, as more and more heroes leap and fly from the pages to the big and small screens, that message isn’t lost.
During tonight’s episode of Supergirl, Alex (Chyler Leigh) finally comes out to the rest of the team, having everyone gather at a local bar before arriving and revealing that she’s dating Maggie (Floriana Lima). The entire group acts as appropriately as they can, meaning hardly at all. There’s no massive group hug or call for shots, just casual acceptance. Watch Entertainment Weekly’s exclusive clip, below.
