lizcommotion: Agent Carter, in white blouse, looking determined (agent carter determined)
If you are looking for light in the darkness, may I recommend "Legends of Tomorrow" (if you have not already seen it)?

Pros:

  • Canonically bi character!

  • Ladies kissing!

  • POC include a 4,000 demigoddess and a 20-something automechanic/superhero.

  • ALSO with legitimately diverse ages, not just "I've been reincarnated forever".

  • Character growth/change for pretty much everyone, lots of "what are ethics here?" that don't automatically default to "well killing is the easiest way to prevent killing, let's do that"

  • Appreciated moments of "hey white dude, the 50s were not a nostalgic time for people not privileged like you."

  • The actor who plays Rory in Dr Who plays a "Time Master" and there is a character called Rory and actor-Rory says (paraphrased) "Why is Rory always such an idiot?"

  • Did I mention that it's about using time travel to stop an immortal evil dude from committing genocide?

  • I appreciate that it rejects the whole "but if we stop the genocide, worse things will happen!" approach that has been in too much of SFF

  • There is going to be a crossover soon and it will involve canonically bi character and Supergirl's cast and THE SHIPS OMG


Cons:

  • Possibly too real right now for some people

  • Some of the character backstories make more sense if you watch The Arrow/The Flash, but I'm pretty sure you could also look things up on the Arrowverse Wiki
