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)

Trivia

The opening credits state that the series is "based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster." However, neither of Superman's creators had any involvement with the creation of Supergirl, who made her first appearance in Action Comics #252 (May 1959). The creators of Supergirl were Otto Binder and Al Plastino. Other than Superman himself, the only characters created by Siegel and Shuster to appear in the series are James Olsen, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. See more »

Goofs

Just when I thought there were no more social justice issues to cover---
4 December 2018 | by rwgilmore24See all my reviews

SE04 Ep02 -Where is the Supergirl SciFi?? What does the entrance of a Blatant female gender girl ( actress Nicole Maines) presenting as "Trans"?? I thought they had covered every social justice issue under the sun! No more for me this is ridiculous. Forgetting for just a moment the social justice angles in EVERY episode and just looking for some authentic , actual SciFi . Supergirl was virtually as strong as superman and "invulnerable" yet many times she is nearly overwhelmed by much lesser aliens or is damaged by weapons or too slow to stop something yet she is supposed to be as fast as The Flash. These writers need to actually read some of the comics and leave out the SJ stuff.
