I expect this show to come with a fair bit of commentary about real-world politics, but I think they're going too far. This year, they're focusing on the real-world illegal immigration issue in the US.
But playing fast & loose with the basic underpinnings of the franchise is going too far.

This week, they made the claim that Supergirl was a "refugee" from war and violence on her home world. Which flies is the face of accepted canon for the franchise; that she and Superman were sent away from Krypton shortly before it exploded. That's not a war, folks.
