Absolutely! I love her :hugs:

I’m so happy that Nicole is bringing Nia into the comics universe! Hopefully the character will live on on the page and have lots of cool adventures, even if the show is ending well before it’s time.

She’s awesome, also liked how the show made her personal journey part of her story, but not her entire story

Very much. Though I have to admit it made me bawl my eyes out when that whole thing happened with her powers passed down from mother to daughter.

Yes! Supergirl has made me feel all the things, repeatedly—I’m sad it’s ending.

I think Dreamer and Brainy would work better in Legends of Tomorrow, if either or both are inclined to stick around in their characters. So start the campaign today! Shake up Legends with Nicole Maines and Jesse Rath!

I can’t say that I’m a fan of Dreamer, as much as I like the dynamics of her being part of the “Super Friends” group. Oh, and of course her relationship with Brainy. Love the guy. Good stuff though. @Mae @Razzzcat
