To be fair there isnt a standard age of consent on planet Earth. Even in the US it varies from 16-18. In Canada they just raised it to 16 from 14. Mexico seems to be the lowest in the americas with 12, but 15 seems the average for south america.
Who knows what the acceptable age is for space aliens XD
From what little I understand of females they are desperate for love and security. We have to consider that poor Kara has been through a lot of pain, confusing scenarios and the trauma of losing her home world, been disconnected permanately from her parents, friends and extended family members and so to have H'el express what she thinks are genuine and caring interests in her drew out a romantic swoosh of gratitude from her heart to his. Of course I cringed when she kissed him lol. But at least we know that this won't end up as tragic as things did between Anakin and Padme or as awkward as they did between Edward, Bella and Jacob rofl.
LOL It isn't that shocking since he has made her to believe he will bring Krypton back and has been very supporting of her and shares a pro-Krypton agenda. Plus, the only other kryptonian besides Kara is Kal, her cousin, who "betrayed" her. Surely H'el will use Kara's feelings towards him to his advantage.
Clone or not, I have a a bad feeling she's going to be upset at Kal no matter what the end is, thus I'm wondering if we're going to see another mary Marvel type situation. Kara goes to the darkside because of H'el's defeat.
Which doesn't mean things would go smoothly with her cousin. But it's been 15 episodes she insults him everytime they meet and she wasn't a bad gal for that.
While I don't like that Kara's being duped by this guy, I can see why she's falling for his tactic AND he is after all manipulating the feelings of a young girl whom he's been observing for quite a long while and devising plans for. If anything, it's H'El who will probably shoulder most of her anger when the story plays out. When it comes to light how he's manipulated her she's gonna be royally unhappy. Choking her as Kal won't compare to lying to her and making her have feelings for him.
Did Wonder Woman and Superman just catch an aircraft carrier?
What I HOPE happens is that Kara's down on herself from being used but it turns into a turning point for both her and Superman as he's comforting toward her also realizing that he had not been giving her discomfort and shell-shock over her new surroundings their due credit and attention. He can do more to help her acclimate and make her comfortable, and he can be more sympathetic. He knows, on an intellectual level, the difference between his situation and hers, but despite words he's not really displaying that he gets her plight. Which is completely understandable, he shouldn't have all the answers or get what she's feeling automatically. But he needs to try a little more to get to know her.

This one never gets old... ^_^
♪♪ ♥♥Super-girl has a boy-friend!♥♥ ♪♪
Kara loves Krypton. In Nu52, Kara is way more attached to her Kryptonian heritage than Kal is.
It's only natural that Kara is falling for H'el because the guy is all about Krypton. It would be like Poison Ivy falling for Captain Planet - At some point, the reasons for attraction are so obvious and strong that moral alignments go out the window.
I suspect that Kara will be hit hard by H'el's inevitable defeat. But I don't think she'll go to the dark side over it. I think it'll just be an easy way to give her moments of ANGST and DRAMA in future Supergirl books.
Please check out my new anime blog:
If it is the way the rumors are going around, with Pandora and two others being part of the sins, then Kara might play a part in that. Feeling like this world has rejected her thus making her more likely to make some bigger mistakes as a 15 year old girl would.
On the other hand, supposing she does get mad at H'el and such events where he's defeted does happen, we may see Kara become more cynical and serious rather then fun. She may feel that it's even the Leagues fault for the loss of her new friend. And yes while I agree that she would become upset at the prospect of losing her friend, she may try to talk H'el into allowing that person to come with them and thus probably not feel as bad over it?
I just have a really bad feeling about the whole "Ramificaitons" aspects that the writers and artist keep touting about this event.
