8. Mon-El

Mon-El developed into one of the Arrowverse’s great heroes, but it wasn’t always like that. Introduced in Supergirl season 2, the former Prince of Daxam was arrogant, infuriating, and really quite selfish. It was the result of living a life of luxury on Daxam, treating those around him like they were less than he was. While he didn’t necessarily do that during his early days in National City, it took him a long time to overcome his former way of life.

It was clear that there was good in Mon-El, but Supergirl didn’t always succeed in showing that. Yes, he grew into a much better person, but some found his backstory to be too extreme, so it was hard to forgive him for what he had done. And the fact that he lied to Kara about it also drew ire from fans, much more than it seems the writers were anticipating.

There was no denying the chemistry between Mon-El and Kara, but it seems that the relationship was doomed because of some of those creative choices. Thankfully, he grew a great deal (thanks in no small part to Kara’s influence) and helped save the world from his arrogant parents before going on to become one of the 31st Century’s most beloved heroes.
