Storyline

Years ago, Krypton was about to explode and Kal-El was sent to Earth to escape that fate. However, his older cousin, Kara, was also intended to accompany the infant as his protector. Unfortunately, Kara was accidentally diverted into the timeless Phantom Zone for years before finally arriving on Earth decades later and found by her cousin who had grown into Superman. Years later, Kara Danvers is a young professional adrift in a thankless job until a fateful crisis ignites a sense of purpose using Kryptonian powers she had long hidden. Inspired, Kara decides to emulate her cousin's superheroic ways, only to find her foster sister introducing her to the secret Department of Extra-Normal Operations, dedicated to fighting alien menaces including those Kara inadvertently led to Earth. Now with such help, the Maid of Might takes her place as Earth's newest champion with new friends and enemies challenging her world. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Cat Grant: There's a new superhero in National City. This is huge; direct competition for Supergirl.
Kara Danvers: He doesn't have to be... competition.
Cat Grant: Would you prefer... a sidekick?
Barry Allen: No, not a sidekick. More like an equal, or an ally...
[Winn pats Barry's shoulder]
Barry Allen: ... a new partner, maybe?
[Cat stares stoically; Barry nods]

User Reviews

 
Great show, really coming into its own.
24 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Supergirl may have started roughly but as the weeks go on, the show really starts to find its footing. It is a light hearted show with great actors. At times, the writing can get a little clunky but Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, Calista Flockhart, and Laura Benanti really bring a lot to it and many times show more through their acting than words. The female relationships on the show are incredibly important and worth following as the show develops. Calista Flockhart is truly a gem that brings levity to every scene she's in while also portraying a complex women with a checked past that wants to help her protégé learn and grow. I would highly recommend this show to anyone who was looking for a fun, family friendly, superhero drama
