Kellie is a high school student who does well in class and wants to be a member of the boys Varsity track team. She's got opposition from several corners, some who are willing to go to almost any lengths to make sure she doesn't realize her dream. Can Captain Marvel get Kellie to the tryouts on time after she's been accused of cheating on a test?
After the dark themes of the previous two episodes, John and Richard tackle the ideas of equality and realizing your dreams in "The Athlete". Is this a tale that still needs to be told today? What is it about the "utterance of a single word" that lends such credibility to the show? Would this story need to be altered as we've discussed with previous stories in order to work for a modern audience? Are the stunts seen in this episode the best in the entire series?
It's all here and we want to hear from you on what you think of the episode.
