Thoroughly entertaining, exciting, and enjoyable, the first season of Supergirl hits the ground running – or air flying? – proving once again that DC has the magic touch when it comes to bringing their characters to life for TV viewers. Whether it’s Arrow, The Flash, or Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s television division has done a tremendous job creating an interconnected world of superheroes much like the success Marvel has had with their Avengers cinematic universe.
Supergirl delivers a strong female superhero lead in Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), who is not only a former resident of the now-destroyed planet Krypton but is also Superman’s cousin. Residing in National City, Kara does her best to live a normal life until a potential tragedy causes her to leap out of the shadows and save the day, thus becoming Supergirl. Torn between living a normal life and being the superhero National City needs, Kara does her best to find a balance, which can be a tricky task.
Each episode showcases Kara’s ongoing quest to adapt to her newfound lifestyle as a superhero and learning about her powers and abilities. Along the way, we are treated some solid action sequences, some intriguing plot twists, and a whole slew of villains that Kara finds herself tasked with stopping both human and otherworldly.
With a solid supporting cast that includes Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, and David Harewood, Supergirl is great superhero entertainment that will have you glued to the TV from the pilot to the exciting season finale!

Supergirl: 2015 Comic-Con Panel
