Loved it more than anyone..

Twenty-four-year-old Kara Zor-El, cousin of Superman, who was taken in by the Danvers family when she was 12 after being sent away from Krypton, must learn to embrace her powers after previously hiding them. One of the most controversial pilots ever and yet one of the shows that was meant to become my favorite in a short amount of time 'Supergirl' is still one the best Arrowverse tv shows in my opinion and Melissa Benoist is simply casted perfectly as the Girl of Steel since she is more than just a pretty face in tights, cape and with an 'S'.
