While it is true that Superman is referred to primarily as Kara's "cousin," or as "Kal-El," or through other ways of avoiding the mention of his famous hero name, he does indeed have one instance in which he's called "Superman" in this film. Just as Kara lands on Earth and is helped up out of her spacecraft, the narration refers to him as already having revealed his powers to the world as "Superman." See more
Kara states that she has never felt pain before, but she would have had at least some experience with it before coming to Earth and gaining her powers. Kryptonians are not naturally invulnerable to pain, and Kara lived for 13 years as a "normal" child on Krypton. See more
My name is Kara Zor-El. 24 years ago, my planet, Krypton, was in serious peril. My cousin, Kal-El, was sent to a planet called Earth for his own safety and protection. You may know his story. The story you don't know is that I was sent to protect him.
