Set in present day Metropolis against the backdrop of a bright, urban landscape, the ageless superhero combats sinister villains and rescues innocent victims in exciting new stories based on universal themes encompassing the same time-honored tradition of the classic Superman legend. Written by
For adapting Supergirl, the creative team wanted a take on her that was not the artificial protoplasmic lifeform called Matrix from post-crisis continuity that takes the shape of Supergirl and later combined with Linda Danvers, a confused and angst-ridden human girl. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm originally wanted to use the original pre-crisis Kara Zor-El version of Supergirl, which is Superman's cousin from Krypton, however, they ran into a wall with DC because they insisted that Superman be the last Kryptonian. So they did a compromise: she's from a small planet called Argos in the neighboring system that was colonized by Kryptonians, but they've evolved slightly differently. See more »

Of course, any girl with class would rather be hangin' with the main man.

So why don't you show old Lobo just how classy you really are?

Ah! I like a girl who plays rough!

If it wasn't for the success of Batman the animated series.
If it wasn't for the success of Batman the animated series, it is likely that this series wouldn't have been made. It is a great series. The material from this series is taken largely from the comics and "Lois and Clark". It is undoubtedly along with Batman one of the finest adaptions ever done of these characters for television or the movies. It is far easier to make the characters believable animated than it is to do live action. While not nearly as good as the Batman material I personally lean towards Supes everytime. It is fine action adventure in the truest sense of the word. Excellent drama. Lots of fun to be had here.
